Transferring Page Rank – New URL’s – SEO Video Blog
If you have recently had a new website developer and are worried about losing your existing search engine listings or Page Rank once you set the site live, don’t worry.
Using server side 301 re-directs will ensure that Google transfers page rank and replaces any existing search engine result positions with your new URL’s.
The process we use is involves a .htaccess file and a simple command line.
Redirect 301 /old-page.html http://www.domain.co.uk/new-page.html = <img>
We have recently produced an new eCommerce website for a client Mama Baby Bliss , we replaced the old site with a sparkly new Magento shop and re-directed any old pages to the new replacement pages.
You can see when looking at the site that some of the sites pages that were 301 redirected have had their page rank passed on, where as the other new URL’s are yet to receive any PR, until the next PR roll out by Google.
In conclusion, you shouldn’t be worried about setting a newly developed website live. As long as the development company understands SEO you should have no down time with the sites listings.
Of course if your interested in purchasing a new eCommerce shop like Mama Baby Bliss, please call freephone on 0800 01 999 06. Thanks for watching.
