After creating more than 700 WordPress websites, and WordPress templates we have learned a lot about migrating HTML websites to WordPress. I have personally migrated hundreds of HTML websites to WordPress, Created the WordPress theme and updated the websites to keep existing ranking in Google. When you are thinking of moving your Website to WordPress to make your life easier there are a lot of things to take into consideration. When you update the DNS to a new hosting provider or location you need to have all your ducks lined up to not hurt your website. Using 301 redirects will help redirect clients who have existing bookmarks to the correct locations, permalinks are a practical way to migrate HTML pages to more SEO friendly URL’s. This will also help let the Search Engines reindex the content to e new locations, moving to WordPress alone is known to give previous HTML only websites a bump in the search Engines.
Some other benefits to having a WordPress websites ? ability to update menu items, static Page content and add new images, video and content without having to contact a web developer. The ability to easily integrate Social media into your new website, customizable contact forms, easy to add galleries, and more.There are a ton of plugins and features for WordPress that require little technical knowledge to configure. Tired of waiting for Google Analytics to update to see who was on your website, there are a few plugins to help you monitor traffic.
I love migrating websites to WordPress. One reason is I like a challenge, the second reason is I love giving customers the control over their website. So if your thinking about moving to WordPress give us a call today! Once you migrate your content to WordPress you will enjoy your website more than ever before.
