Thanks for responding via the support ticket and suggesting I move this to the forum to get more help from yourself and experts within the community.
For the purposes of the forum thread, here is my original message:
A few months ago I deployed a clients website (https://www.beckenham-beauty.co.uk) onto Webflow. It was ultimately just a cosmetic change, ensuring the content/page slugs and meta data were all the same. For the past 8 years, my client has enjoyed the number 1 spot on Google with no deviation in ranking. Since being on Webflow the rankings have dropped dramatically and some are no were near the top 5 pages on Google.
Here is a list of things that were done on launch to try to ensure the SEO stayed at the top:
- Content the same
- Meta title & description the same
- Page slug kept the same
- The site was set-up on Cloudflare for faster loads/performance
- Google updated with Webflow sitemap
My concern is that in the next couple of weeks I am about to deploy a big corporate clients website and the ultimate goal of moving the rest of our 5,000+ clients onto Webflow. A high percentage also enjoy high SEO rankings
Has something like this been brought to you in the past and was there any changes that were made that rectified the drop in SEO?
The differences in the old website and new website:
- The site was originally on non-SSL hosting.
- It is now being sent through Cloudflare
The website has been on Webflow hosting for approximately 3 months. I have moved the website twice before the old website and each time rankings were unchanged.
Has anyone else experienced a similar drop in rankings moving over to Webflow hosting, and was any fundamental changes made that boosted your site back up again?
To be honest, I cannot see why it would drop in comparison as the old website was running on concrete5 cms and was slow, the site is now very fast.
