    • Website Redesign Tip #1
      Audit your website, then protect
      your key assets.
      -- @ rickburnes from @HubSpot

      What is your most popular content?
      What is your most powerful content?
    • Website Assets = Links
      How many inbound links do I have?
      What interior web pages have links?
      Where are my links coming from?
      What are my most powerful links?
    • Website Assets = Keyword Rank
      What keywords do I rank for today?
      What keywords do my competitors rank for?
      What keywords should I want to rank for?
      How has my keyword rank changed?
    • Website Assets = Conversion Tools

      If you change domains, use a 301 redirect for each individual page. Not all pages globally.
      Have a permanent redirect (check at http://www.WebsiteGrader.com)
      Identify all URLs with assets (content, keyword rank, links, conversions) and:
      Keep this content on the new website
      301 Redirect old URL to the new URL for that page
      Maintain SEO / content characteristics
    • Spend resources on creating content, more than beautiful design.

    • Seth Godin on Website Redesign
      “I'm going to go out on a limb and beg you not to create an original design. There are more than a billion pages on the web. Surely there's one that you can start with?”
      “Your car isn't unique, and your house might not be either…”
