Will moving my domain name to another Web provider hurt my search engine ranking?

 

 

Well it's December. No I'm not going to start asking you what I want for Christmas so keep your wallets and purses away-that might be for another day. This blog is the "Help me my fellow Superstar Actime rainers.

 

 

See I have a website that the search engine ranking is well not good I guess. Also please read blogs by Tammy Emineth -She is a pro on that topic. You see I have a BIG PROBLEM. For many months now,my website has not only been getting no traffic but I'm also not getting any leads. I told you I have a big problem.

 

 

 

AND in 2014 and soon to be 2015 in a month,my website is not mobile-optimized and friendly-ANOTHER BIG PROBLEM. And when you now have Millennials and Generation X home buyers who are using their mobile phones and tablets more than ever to start their home buying search,you could be losing potential home buyers and even sellers.

 

 

And those are the main reasons why I want to move my domain name to another web provider. But I want to know if moving my domain name to another Web provider will hurt my search engine ranking because I don't want to do end up with a bigger problem than the one that I already have.

 

 

But if it will hurt my search engine ranking then I will just have to hire someone to make the changes to my website such as SEO and make it mobile friendly if possible. But I am not sure if I can make this site mobile friendly since some web providers might not allow you to make changes to their site. But why continue to hold onto to something that is affecting my real estate sales? I just want to be 100% because I have heard stories of how moving from one website to another affect their search engine ranking position. Plus I still rank on first pages on certain keywords with my website. But I want to rank first page with more long tail keywords and short tail keywords 

 

 

Will moving my domain name to another Web provider hurt my search engine ranking? Tammy Emineth please answer this question. If anybody will know it's you.

Lanre -  I am not the expert but I believe the web hosting company does not matter as long as you move and keep the same domain.

It might depend on if you own the domain name yourself or not. When I bought my name. evelynjohnston, I bought it from yahoo. It cost me $35 to buy. I moved it to go daddy and host it myself now but still have to pay yahoo $35 every year. My website has always been on godaddy.com.  My leads come in because of the content that I write, not where it is hosted. I did have my website cleaned up last year and mobile optimized and my rankings improved. I would be happy to share my web masters contact info if you would like it.

I'd love to see more responses on your question( even I paid few years ahead).

I thought about buying realtor.com domain. Anyone has an experience with them?

I don't know too many if any honestly speaking who have purchased realtor.com domains. I'd purchase something like CalabasasCAHomesforsale.Com and/or Calabasas Homes.com if they are still available. Something short and something that your people can remember.

Lanre,  I am by no means an expert on this subject matter but I have done that many times. If it is done CORRECTLY, it should not hurt. I moved three times in one year because the hosting companies I was with had my sites down more than they were up. Yes, that is an exaggeration but when the sites are down a lot ... that is never a good thing.

Sorry I am SOOO late to the party.... And yes, if done correctly it shouldn't hurt but you never know... I have had websites from real estate website providers that actually kept a copy of the entire site LIVE and we didn't realize it for a year.. turns out it was duplicate content and hurting his site. If it's a WP site or a simple site you own, moving the domain shouldn't hurt. I am 90% positive... but you never know exactly how Google will react to ANY change.  Your site looks like something you created so it shouldn't be a problem on hosting but are you considering going with a whole new site? If so, like a Wordpress site, that could harm OR it could actually help! IT's a weird thing but yes, mobile friendly is always important and if you are not, you can hurt your prime demographics way of finding you.
