    I've lost serps drastically after 301 moving my pages to a new structure as i moved the site to wordpress.

    i can still see all the backlinks in webmaster tools and have scraped them all from yahoo.

    What would be the best/quickest way to get google to go over all these backlinks again and hopefully return my new page to where it was.

    maybe building an rss feed and submitting it?
    putting the backlinks in scrapebox and spamming them all over the joint?
    other suggestions?

    cheers

    I'd probably just leave it for a bit, or carry on what you normally do. Changing over site structure, even when doing everything google tell you to do, 301 redirects etc, can make you drop for a bit, but from my experience you should come back to where you are.

    i agree with milian. continue doing what you would normally do and let them find your backlinks naturally.

    No, it's custom CMS MySql/php with a lot of problems - big site with VBulletin Forums. Plus to that we would like to use this chance to move from GoDaddy to Hostgator. As far as I know we have to keep domain name on GoDaddy not to lose age and PR?

    So I was told it should be some kind of converter/script to migrate content to WP with the same url structure. In this case we'll not lose backlinks. I am not sure about forums. There is Vb plugin to do the trick, but it should be on the same server. Any other ideas on how to covert to WP?

    Any advice will be appreciated.
