Migrating Your Website To New Heights

 

A site migration is necessary when a website needs to be moved to a new platform or when a domain name is being changed, perhaps for re-brand purposes. It is vitally important that you consult with your SEO Company before you migrate your website. Migrating a site to new URLs without proper planning and redirections will lose you traffic and rankings particularly if you move from an established domain to a new domain.

Often we have clients come to us with an out dated website, with no content management system and no easy means to make the site search engine friendly. The design, structure and art direction may all need a rethink. If you have your own web developer we can work with them, if you need our help then we can take you through the entire process to make sure that the new website:

  • Covers all possible traffic driving keywords
  • Is usability tested for maximum conversions
  • Is navigated intuitively by users
  • Is structured for functionality and the search engines

Then when it come to the actual migration, we will either work with your existing developer to ensure the migration is done to minimise disruption to your web traffic. We will put in place a complete URL 301 redirection plan including implementation. Once the site is live we will crawl using several tools to ensure any issues are resolved:

  • 404 errors and broken links fixed
  • XML sitemaps are present and submitted to Webmaster Tools
  • All internal linking is updated with new URLs
  • If applicable we can look at inbound links to update the URLs.

So if you are thinking of migrating a website to a new domain or even just a new platform, we can implement the process for you or if you just want a consultative eye cast over your existing plans we can just give our expert advice.

Our past website projects

Whether it is a brand new optimised website or website migration, we have been involved with some fantastic projects to create our client’s new websites. From mortgage brokers to wedding boutiques we can help clients no matter what industry they serve.

Take a look at a couple of examples of some of our recent projects below.

Trousseaux – Wedding Boutique

Trousseaux came to us in 2015 in definite need of a fresh design for their then outdated website. With new ownership coming into place, this was the perfect opportunity to refresh the website, and they opted to choose ourselves, as a local supplier.

“I found the staff at All Things Web® totally professional and knowledgeable, they make the client feel extremely important and the most vital part of the process. The team went above and beyond the call of duty to design a website which is better than I ever could have wished for.” – Vicki Bruce, Owner

Blast Mobile Bar Hire – Event Bar Hire

Blast Event Hire is a longstanding client of our team, and when they opted to create a separate microsite dedicated to their bar hire service, they were thrilled to come to us thanks to our in-depth knowledge of their business already, and understanding of just wanted they wanted to achieve.

“We have a couple of large projects happening this year and we have felt totally at ease with letting All Things Web@ take control of this. They have a very keen eye for detail and take all our requests on board whilst giving their honest feedback to ensure that the finished product is the best it possibly can be. They are always on hand if we ever have any queries or urgent requests and fulfill our requirements very efficiently. The team are an absolute pleasure to work with and I can’t wait to see what other projects we get to work on together in the future.” – Josh Hignell, Managing Director

BASDA – Business Application Software Developers Association

BASDA were already receiving support from both All Things Web® and All Things Marketing, and we quickly identified the need for a brand new website especially to encourage larger corporations to join the association along with some current well known members.

“I have just been able to take a good look at the new site and it is really impressive.  The home page plays well to our strengths and underlines the importance of our role in engaging on key agenda topics.  The content is clear and the navigation works well.” – Tim Cole, BASDA General Council Member
