    Site is 2+ years old, MNS super shitty theme haha. just a autoblog, I want to redesign the whole thing without removing the posts of course. no link building or anything else has been done to it, gets about 1k visits a day, if i redesign is it going to hurt that much? should i worry?



    thanks for the feedback guys :cool:

    Its really should if you just change the theme but keep all the seo setting on your new theme.

    depends what you mean by redesigning? if all metas and links will be the same you wont lose nothing. If you are planning to change the links of your website you might wanna redirect your old page links to new ones, you can find a plugin for that too.

    Hope that helped! G Luck )

    In my opinion, it will hurt your ranking... As far as traffic is concerned, if your whole traffic is from search engine, it will get affected. But traffic from other sources will remain intact.
