    Hey people ,

    I have a website ,which was my first website which is 2 years old .. I have built it using frontpage & html stuff.

    It looks a lil bit ugly , bringing me ~7$ a day lol

    It gets traffic mainly from SEO ..

    What I did before a while (laziness) is that I redirected all the pages (but the homework) to 1 of its pages.

    I did that because I had no time to check broken links etc , the site's homepage is PR3 , another page is pr3 (which i redirected all the pages to) and I remember (before redirection) I hade some pr 1 & 2 pages..


    So my question dear friends , should I rebuild it and install wordpress ?? Will I keep my serp and pr ??
    Or what exactly ? :D Thanx

    The PR wont change directly because you changing around your websites content, layout etc. That isn't what PR is based on. Your search engine ranking will change with almost 100% certainty. It may go up or down. We don't know. But when you completely change the content and layout, google needs to completely re-assess if you are still an authority on the subject matter. Just back up for files, make the swap to wordpress, and if everything goes to hell, reboot the old site.

    I've switched sites like this and, yes, you may take a hit on ranking. However, the long term gain from going with seo friendly wordpress code will benefit you.

    I would build a bunch of quality links to your new site to give it a boost back to where it was and beyond. This is one of those unavoidable things and why its important to build any site correctly from the beginning. But in your case, wp was probably not that popular or not around when you built your site.
