    Hi all,

    First time post here.

    We operate a small ecommerce store and plan on moving cart, most likely from Interspire to Magento or possibly Prestashop.

    We want to be sure not to damage our current search rankings when making this move and ideally improve our rankings at the same time by utilizing the new cart?s seo functionality as best we can.

    Stage 1 of the project will see us simply move our current store from one cart to another. For this move we are keeping our existing single domain and intend on moving our current set up without making many, if any changes to content, product descriptions , URL?s etc as we believe this best practice for ensuring our current rankings remain as they are- is such thinking correct? Or should we do otherwise

    Stage 2 would see us operate a multi lingual, multistore, with 4 domains operating with 1 back end. For the 3 new domains we are looking to set up these storefronts in whichever manner will be most beneficial from an seo perspective

    We welcome any advice as to what we should consider? What we should and shouldn?t do? and best practices for this project

    Please advise if any other information is required to best answer our query

    Thanks for taking the time to read our post, any forthcoming tips and advice will be greatly appreciated

    Anyone!? :)

    Another question - We are unsure whether to go with Magento or Prestashop, can anyone advise which platform they believe to be best for a multi lingual, multi store setup? (Our site offers between 100-150 products)

    From here we had hoped to identify a source that would see us progress to placing an order for a full SEO consultation as that now doesn't seem likely, could anyone please recommend a highly regarded SEO consultant that could provide us with the info we are looking for, along with an SEO plan?

    Thanks in advance
