Please could I get some advice from any of you guys that have had experience with website redesigns.
I have just done a complete site redesign and 301 redirected old url's.
Just noticed a keyword has dropped, massively! it has taken Google a week to list the new url, and now it has, the key term for that page has dropped from position 4 page 1 to page 10!!!!
Ive read that a temporary slight ranking drop with redesigns is normal and to be expected. Obviously im very anxious and would love some reassurance that this is all ok and normal. Page 1 to page 10 is not what I would call a slight drop!
How long should I expect it to take to regain ranking? Is there anything I can do to bring the ranking back up quicker?
With this particular keyword on page 10 its going to be a quiet day in the office :-(
Cheers for any advice.
