A website migration involves moving your website from one domain to another. There are many good reasons why you might want to migrate your website, for example if you want to improve your website's structure to make navigation easier for the user, or if you are changing your global domain strategy to aid your international SEO efforts. However, it can come at a heavy cost to your SEO if you lose your domain authority and backlink history. An SEO Strategist can assist you with your website migration by producing a custom website migration guide, a redirect plan, auditing your new website while it is still in a development environment (not live yet) and – finally – validating the redirect implementation after “go live”.

Alternatively, you might be changing your global domain strategy to aid your international SEO efforts.
However, if done without care and attention, a website migration can result in your website losing domain authority and its backlink history, which can be disastrous for your SEO.
