An often overlooked aspect of launching a new website is the redirecting of your old webpages to your new webpages and so avoiding a negative impact on your search engine rankings. If this step is missed there is a high chance that any search engine rankings your site has hitherto achieved will be wiped out and set back to zero. It is like moving your shop from one part of town to another without letting anyone know.

We make use of another of Google’s products to assist with the interpretation of your analytics data, that is Data Studio. Here we can configure dashboards showing you the business-critical information that you base your business decisions on in real time in an easy to read form.
