I just converted our companies website over to the new design on Monday and now working out all the kinks. The old website was all html and it had been up for almost 10 years. It has very good rankings in Google, so what I had to do is convert my database into HTML for now so that Google won't kick our rankings down. What has been the best solution for dealing with this kind of dilemma?
Some things to keep in mind when checking out the site, we are doing this in 3 phases. Phase 1 was to introduce our eStore, something the company never had. Phase 2 the rest of the site we just used all the content from the original site and just converted it to the new design. We are in the process of getting all the furniture photographed proffesionally, so that it all looks consistent and we'll be adding lots more content to the furniture section as well. Phase 3 we will be adding a corporate gift section.
Still lots of kinks and some broken links when I converted the database to html, so lots of sleepless nights doing the fixes.
Any thoughts/suggestions/ideas would be great! Here's the link: www.martinandmacarthur.com
and for anyone who is curious as to what the old website looks like I have a couple of pages still loaded as an example of where they were, and the direction they are going now.
