    Hello all.

    I've got a website that currently ranks no 1 on google and has done so for a while, however I've need completed a new design on the template which in my opinion looks alot better and cleaner.

    As you can imagine I'm concerned though about loosing the spot I currently have and I'm looking for feedback from other members on here, have you replaced a website and what happened?

    I'm guessing my site might disappear for a week or 2, what do you think might happen?

    I'm going to before swapping over run it though as many site comparable to try and keep it looking the same to google so it might not be noticed.

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    The site is without spaces Magazine Subscription .co.uk - (to see the new site please add dev. at the front

    cheers Mally

    Website looks great and is a huge improvement. Is it a Greg Findley creation? :) Reminds me I really need to get some specifications done for my projects so they can be started on!

    The URL structures all look the same so shouldn't be any major problems there. You need to look at the meta tags though as some of the pages I skimmed over haven't got the same (or any) like your previous design by the looks of things.

    One other suggestion would be to have the search box auto clear when clicked on.

    The new look is great. As long as nothing changes structure-wise I think you can limit the impact this will have. I think your visitors will appreciate the new design.
