Hi, I'm doing a website for a client who has a first page listing on Google (within top 5 links in fact), but because his website's design is somewhat outdated, he asked me to redesign for him. He (and equally, me as well) is very concerned about his Google ranking. So here is a question: what recommendations or tips can you give for a web designer to not lose the ranking in the process of redesign? I am thinking that it is important to keep urls for each page exactly as is, so that the search engine's crawler would not see any difference. The text content of the site is basically the same, so it's just the look that's going to change. Any more suggestions? Thanks.

just changing the "look" should make no difference at all.
