Changing Site From Html To Ecommerce /cms
Posted 06 February 2010 - 08:13 PM
Our site (we sell gifts) was build originally in HTML and we have now around 1000 pages, all in HTML. We have a very good ranking and excellent positions on our main keywords and key-phrases .We are planning to have a makeover. My question is if we change platform to CMS /Ecommerce are we going to loose our ranking or (more importantly ) our positions in Google?
If we use redirect 301 is it going to save our Google position or there is a risk to loose it?
(we are not planning to change any content, just URL’s and site structure)
Thanks is advance for your tips and suggestions!!!!!!

It will save it, but there's a lot more that goes into it than that.
I have a few articles on SEO while redesigning which you should familiarize yourself with and also send to you developers:
6 Website Redesign SEO Secrets Your Developer May Not Know
Best SEO Practices During A Website Redesign
7 Do's & Don'ts For Working With A Technical SEO During A Redesign
Hope this helps!

Great articles !!!...thanks
But I still have some concern regarding the 301 redirect ...
If we will redesign the site by the "rules" (keeping in mind all the factors) , based on your experience , when we do 301 redirect , it affects immediately the search results or there is some time (2-3 months or more) for Google to update their side, and we will loose our search engine positions for that time.
