Redesigning your websites affects your rankings.
Did you see a drop in your rankings after a redesign?
John Mueller of Google was asked about that and he said “Yes, if you do a redesign of a site, it can affect how search engines see your site. It’s good to consider SEO when doing a redesign.”
The question was specifically asked around the helpful content update and a drop in the keywords after changes in the blog design.
John Mueller added “It is not a matter of “recovering” – if you change your site, it’s a different site, and it will show up like that in search.”
