Work With Site Migration Experts
In today's rapidly evolving digital landscape, the platform your website runs on and the structure of the site can significantly impact its performance, scalability, and user experience. Re-platforming your site to a new platform or migrating to a new structure can be a crucial strategic move for businesses seeking to leverage more advanced features, improve site functionality, or align with changing digital strategies. At Inclind, we specialize in making these transitions smooth, secure, and beneficial for your long-term digital success.
What Is A Website Migration?
A website migration is the process of making substantial changes to a site's structure, tech stack, design, content, or content location. Small site changes (changing font colors, adding a few new paragraphs to a page, changing one URL, etc.) aren't considered migrations. The term migration implies major large-scale changes. These changes can have immense impacts on your site's performance and as a result, are best left to professionals to perform.
Benefits Of Site Migrations
There are many benefits that organizations stand to gain from performing a site migration. Common benefits our clients experience from site migrations include:
Migrate to a platform that offers better speed, reliability, and user experience.
Leverage newer, more advanced functionalities your current platform may lack.
Future-proof your website with a platform that grows with your business needs.
Upgrade to a platform with robust security features to protect your site and data.
SEO and Compliance
Benefit from improved SEO capabilities and ensure compliance with the latest web standards.
Types Of Website Migrations
A website migration is a very broad term that encompasses many different specific types of migrations. There are seven different types of migrations a website could undergo. Inclind can assist with any of the different types of migrations below.
How Website Migrations Affect SEO
One of the largest risks of performing a site migration is a drop in search visibility. If a migration is performed properly, you'll see little to no impact on your search visibility (it's always possible you may even see an increase in visibility in some cases). However, if a migration is not executed properly, you could see a decline in search traffic that could take months to recover from.
Our web developers collaborate with our SEO experts for migration projects to ensure the migration does not negatively impact your site's SEO. We map out all URLs and place the proper redirects for any URLs that will be changing. Any content or design changes are also reviewed against our SEO best practices to make sure search engines can still properly analyze and understand your content.
