 Before directly starting with your re-design process, you need to check out the following list :
(1) Missing page titles.
(2) Duplicate page titles.
(3) Broken links.
(4) Duplicate H1 tags, Missing H1 tags.
(5) Missing Meta description.

  Also check manually :

(1) XML sitemap
(2) Robots.txt
(3) URL structure
(4) Pages indexed by search engines.
(5) Site speed and performance.

 After this, you can work on your landing pages, check for the navigations and use some fresh color-mix.

There are certain reasons that one should know before redesigning a website and those are as follows:

  • Updating current information
  • Meeting current Web standards
  • It is hard to navigate
  • Become more competitive
  • Your website has outdated third-party software tools
  • Your website doesn’t reflect your brand
  • To update new trendy designs
  • Your website lacks content marketing strategy
  • You need control on your website
  • Optimize for search engines

Just by redesigning a website makes your website more fresh and user-friendly which ultimately drives traffic and generates leads for you.

While designing it is necessary to set proper 301 redirects so that user will get redirected to the new page. If it is done in a wrong way then search engine will consider it 404 web pages not found.

It is suggested to do proper testing before making it live globally. In case, you miss any parameter then it will affect your SEO.

Redesigning of a website is very important, if visitors are finding it hard to navigate. So, even after you redesign your website, check if visitors can navigate easily. Also, see to it that you are using proper color schemes while redesigning.
