How to buy an existing website and not lose traffic?

2 replies
Has anyone here ever purchased an established website and managed to keep most of its traffic intact? Of course, a host migration is in question, so that's my main concern. I have a website that I am thinking of buying, but moving everything over to a new host may affect its SEO. I'm assuming Google will naturally reindex its content over time?

Any tips are appreciated!

    Hi David! That's very exciting! I can tell you that I've moved websites from one host to another an have not lost traffic. If you can share any more details on what the site is built in, that would be helpful. I could recommend hosting platforms too. The traffic should stay in tact as long as you don't change the website URL structure or majority of content. Thanks!

    From my and some friends experience it does NOT affect your ranking at all.
