    One of my sites was hit by Google updates and I'm thinking of totally re-structuring
    my site. Totally deleting all categories and tags then re-making them, re-doing all
    page names and perma-linking structures, etc.

    Has anyone ever done this, and what was the out come from doing it?

    Would you recommend I do something like this?

    Do you think this may be a good case study if no one has done this yet?

    Looking for valuable information from people so please post your thoughts.

    I also did re-structure few days ago as it is much needed after harsh updates :D

    Now either no one has thought about doing this, or people have done it
    and it worked wonders on bringing a site back from the dead, and
    they want to try to keep this method a secrete, or it did nothing.

    Hmmmm, I'm going to see what happens with my site over the next
    couple weeks to see if what I'm trying now works, if it don't, I will
    create a Case Study on this method of totally re-structuring my site
    too see how it changes anything in rankings.

    I'll be honest, I've never done it myself but I would be very interested to see your own case study. As best I can tell, now is the time to do a total restructure as it's not going to lose you anything in terms of Google - in fact, you should get the bounce from re-submitting as well as the purse SEO boost. So while I can't give much advice I would say that the idea is sound.

    I think I'm going to move forward with this idea and do a case study using this site of mine.

    I have a few questions though, I'm sure someone will help me with these.

    What section would I put it in?

    To make this a good case study, what information do I show everyone?
