Hi There,

 
I am a bit nervous about the prospect of converting a static HTML site to either a WordPress or Joomla site due to the fear of losing SERP position.
 
Currently the site in question is enjoying a #2 and #10 spot for 2 search terms. Both on page 1.
 
The site needs to be updated to allow for data base integration and also to finally go to a responsive format.
 
Does anyone have any feedback on their experiences with this transition and the best way to maintain the same positioning?
 
I have done this before but with mixed results.
 
Of course the 301 redirects will naturally be done, but what other steps might one take?
 
Thanks in advance!

Done this on five different sites going going from ASP and/or 'static' HTML to WordPress, with no problems at all.

Mind you, I haven't checked rankings for about twelve years but nothing important has changed dramatically on these sites.

OK thanks for your reply. I will have to bite the bullet and hope to not lose any ground on the positioning.

See all my articles about seo and redesign first. There's a LOT you have to be aware of.
