According to a July 1st article published by Business 2 Community titled, "Your New Website is Killing You. Here's Why," there are solutions to common pitfalls that are faced by businesses during a switch to a new website. Redesigning your company's website can be a huge step towards creating increased traffic and sales in the future. Unfortunately, businesses that chose to do this are sometimes met with setbacks in the present.One problem commonly associated with website redesign is loss of search engine rankings and broken backlinks.

There are options available to minimize this risk. One way to keep rankings to keep the page content and keywords as similar to the originals as possible. The second solution is to keep the links and URLs on new pages as close to the originals as they can be. This will also minimize problems associated with broken backlinks. The article suggests that hiring a professional internet marketing team to help with this transition may be the best option for businesses going through website changes.

"The difference that it makes to invest in professional website design is night and day," he explains, "Putting a professional marketing company in charge of your redesign is a smart investment in both the short term and the long term. Professionals know how to optimize the transition to keep existing search rankings and backlinks."
