This is the second article in our three-part series about how to do a site-wide update without demolishing your search ranking. We’ve previously discussed how to excel when launching a comprehensive redesign; in this post, we’d like to tell you how to successfully migrate your site to HTTPS. #bookmarkit  
Switch to HTTPS. Your visitors will appreciate your dedication towards security and Google will reward you. But there are some tricks you should know.

Major Redesign of a 700 page website - launched without any issues.

On Christmas Eve, 2015 we launched a new site for KAYAK, switched to HTTPS, removed two dozen pages, reduced our on-page content, and simplified pretty much every aspect of the site. Yet we didn’t notice a slip or a blip in any of our metrics.

Were we just lucky? Nope. We were prepared.

Check out what we did... This is the first of a 3-post series on the topics of Redesign, HTTPS, and maintaining (or recovering) your Social Shares post-HTTPS. #bookmarkit Authored by +Nick Heer
Helpful hints on how to avoid suffering through weeks or months of tanked rankings when you launch your redesigned site.

A wee bit of tech talk to kick off your Friday morning... this is the third in a series of three articles that will explain how the team at +KAYAK Online Marketing managed to preserve our rankings in the wake of a site overhaul, and help you do it as well:

Part 1:
Rebuild Your Site Without Demolishing Your Search Ranking

Part 2:
Your HTTPS Upgrade Could Put Your Search Rank in Danger

Part 3:
Losing Your Social Sharing Counts Could Cost You

Find them all from this link.

Note: While we accomplished this on HubSpot, you’ll find similar code in your platform of choice, and it should be fairly easy for a web developer to modify it accordingly.
Social proof remains a key indicator of reputability and quality, but migrating to HTTPS or another domain can ruin your sharing buttons. Here's a fix.

I noticed that the blogs in your site have been scraped (stolen) from my client's site. Theft of other people's work is absolutely terrible. Please remove them immediately.

Always great events and resources by the Chamber. As the 2013 Finalist for Small Business of the Year and Breakout Business, my team and I were treated wonderfully. The Business in Calgary Events email and listing is invaluable for people wanting to expand their knowledge of Calgary's business climate, and the LinkedIn Group is rocking thanks to Aaron.
