    Hi Guys,

    I've got a webshop with bike parts. Currently i've got around 22.000 products, with about 4000 products that have a seo written description.
    The old (magento) installation had errors so i made a new one and went live last week. However, the organic rates have dropped with 50 a day (normally get 140 a day, the ranking is bad)
    However most of the cash is going to price-compare sites to get some sort of revenue. If this shop isnt getting better rankings i probably will lose my job by the summer.
    I've been working here for 5 months, and the shop exists about 2 years. However they have never managed to get a decent google ranking, even though following all the google tips from webmasterhelp and advice from SEOmoz. I can say there is some concurrent sites with bike parts here in the Netherlands, but it's not that they are actively working on their SEO.
    Any advice is welcome, sure want to pay some cash as long as it delivers..

    I believe that the URLs haveschanged after the upgrade and google thinks that the pages are new, so they rank lower

    Yeh it's completely normal - They'll get re-indexed and be ranking within 2 - 6 weeks, use webmaster tools to submit your sitemap and the homepage (click all linking pages) and it'll get indexed pretty quickly..
