Will I Lose Article Ranking If I Edit Article

by LadyL08 2 replies
I need to redirect my articles to a different domain. I have some that are solidly on page 1. Will I lose my ranking if I edit the articles?

I was thinking about doing a redirect of the current domain to the new domain. If Google doesn't like my current domain (it wont re-index it) and I do a redirect, will it penalize my new domain also.

    Google is funny when it comes to things like this. I would say there's a small chance you might lose your ranking but it is more likely if you actually change the content, not the URL in your links.

      You should not lose your ranking if you change the content unless you change it enough to actually change the meaning/keyword usage of the article.

      I have had recent success with changing articles and watching them actually increase in ranking. Just use your common sense and try not to change the article TOO much.

      Every day I check the obituaries. If I don't see my name there, then I know it's going to be a good day!
