Website Migration with Perfect SEO Link Juice

We can now import websites from most other CMS and shopping platforms, maintaining perfect SEO link juice and full replication of the existing template and content. 

The migration service takes a perfect snapshot of all SEO meta tags and URL filenames, ensuring that all pages are in the right place, and specifying the same SEO information, just as Google is used to seeing prior to migration. 

After migration, you can then use our SEO tools to manage your meta tags yourself, and further improve your google ranking, without worrying about implementing 301 redirects. That step is not necessary, as your site map has been maintained.

To learn more about how this works, here are two articles for you to read:

System Updates

  • #FormBuilder It is now easier to edit form fields, prompts, and navigate around form fields when building your own custom enquiry forms. For example, if you have lots of radio buttons of the same name, you can rename all at once, and quickly edit each value..
    These custom forms are great for capturing all sorts of information from new or existing customers, and multiple responses can be downloaded as a spreadsheet / csv export. So you can then compile the results of surveys or import data into other systems.
    We also have custom membership forms, which are a different feature, focused on creating new member records, with associated long term data.
  • #Analytics - Google analytics is a very large platform now. If you are upgrading to V4 analytics, then it is the "Measurement ID" you need to put in our Google Tag Manager ID box... not the "Stream ID"... You can confirm you have the right one, if you see the ID in the gtag.js code provided by Analytics...
  • Drag/Drop v7 and Content Box v7 is now live.We have moved many of the popups into draggable iframe based modals. This allows us to develop and expand individual popup features of both editor modes, without needing to deploy a full update to the whole application. This should create more stability moving forward.
