By definition, website migration happens when a website moves from one environment to a different one, or there is a change in the domain name of a website. Talking in terms of SEO, a transition can be a migration if a site’s URL structure experiences a fundamental change. If changes occur in the location, platform, layout, content, architecture, or UX of a website, it amounts to site migration. Website migration involves redirecting all of your old web pages to new pages. This is done to prevent any fall in rankings caused by moving or changing your site.

Along with that you need to ensure that your new site doesn’t have any performance issues and all the site features are working properly. It should not take too long for your site after migration to get back to its peak performance level.
Further, website migration requires close analysis of the most popular web pages and those content that generate high traffic. In most cases, FAQ page needs a rewriting, because FAQ page can drive significant traffic.
It is crucial to rehash content with the new site structure without losing any information. Also, restructuring without careful consideration of multiple factors can cause issues elsewhere. Every onsite URL on the website needs to be carefully removed and/or adjusted. Website migration requires expertise, great focus and time for it to be successful and glitch-free.

The first thing to do is performing an audit in the proper way. Old and irrelevant material needs to be removed or updated on your new website. At the same time deleting all the old web pages can negatively impact search ratings based on keywords. A lot of focus and thinking goes into deciding the alteration strategy. Changes must be done in a way that helps the new site to function better, and drive more traffic.
The next step is performance analysis of your website. We employ the best and most effective tracking and evaluation tools on your website to monitor its performance. Our tools help us to understand the visitors’ user journey and their behavior patterns. Equally important is to analyse the bounce rate and the average duration each visitor spends on a page.

Next, we focus on Redirect Maps. Mapping your old site’s links to the new ones is quite important. Multiple elements need to be factored in to properly assess the links on the two sites. This is a detailed and time consuming process. It involves a lot of specific details and creating the best mapping formula depends on your current website and its infrastructure.
Obviously, once the redirect map is ready, it’s time to implement the same. It needs to be understood that your current website is known and popular among your users. It is quite likely that they have already bookmarked and saved the website on multiple devices. Thus, implementation of redirects of your established links to the new website is important for ensuring a smooth user journey. This makes sure that your current users do not miss any key information and are able to easily access your new website.
Now we move on to another key aspect, that is performance review. This too is a crucial step and several factors need to be considered while assessing the performance of your new website. They are listed below:
Look for any errors or hurdles in performance while reviewing the site Check each and every link on your website is working properly. Look for bugs and fix them. Ensure website upgrades are done promptly Ensure domain names are renewed Once we identify the major and minor issues on your website, we move on to fixing them.

As mentioned earlier, website performance analysis is done by placing relevant tracking tools on your website, which is followed by assessment and comparison of links on the two websites. Finally, redirect the existing links to the new site, and regularly test the site for any errors or flaws.
