Replacing A Site
Posted 23 May 2012 - 06:38 AM
I have a freind that has a static site.
He shows up on the first page of Google for a number
of search terms.
He would like to switch over to a blog and use a responsive site.
So your new Aroxis looks real intresting.
The question is how do you go from a static
site to a blog and keep your Google listings?
I would think all of the links will change and you would
lose your Google love.
To change or not to change?

Losing ranking doesn't have to be an issue. If he's making the switch on the same domain name, a page or two may have to be replaced. But for all other pages, 301 redirects and informing Google of the URL change can preserve a lot of ranking.
As with any major move, there will be pros and cons. Your friend just has to decide which side is better for his or her web presence. I would almost always choose to use a blogging platform over a static site.

I think a change makes sense also, especially with the huge
increase in all of the different user devices.
I understand 301, but how do you tell Google of the change? Site Map maybe?
