There is a lot to think about when redesigning an existing website. Project activities include; budget planning, milestones, and new content development. One of the most important tasks is to ensure that any existing search engine rankings or marketing efforts are not undone during the redesign process.

Thus, you’ll want an experienced SEO to prepare a thorough migration strategy to maintain maintain site traffic and preserve rankings. Failure to prepare and execute a migration strategy can crush your search engine rankings, traffic — as shown in the traffic data above — and revenue.

To properly plan your SEO migration, you need to think of everything that may go wrong and define requirements to help ensure everything goes smoothly.

Last fall I attended Victor Drover's session at the Joomla! World Conference in San Jose, California, where he spoke on the topic "Is Joomla 3 Ready For Enterprise?" (see video above) I was at the back of the room and as I listened to him I remember thinking about my own experience with a commercial enterprise system.

It was while I was engaged in a large project for a national association in Canada that I first looked into Joomla. Joomla! was at version 1.0 and it impressed me with what it could do right out of the box. Of course it was no where near what was needed for the association but we started using Joomla! for microsites where it easily did the job that was needed.
