I postponed finalizing the design of the home page for a few months and in the meantime got some decent links to it.
I finally HAVE to do it but I've already seen drops in rankings once I change the page - I can keep all of the text and add a section or two...my main problem is that I have a sidebar there right now that has no place being on the home page.
I feel like removing it might be to big of change & might trigger the links to be devalued. So, I'm thinking of keeping the sidebar but instruct my developer to make it it hidden by default.
So, I'm looking for experience and advice on how to do it safely.
Thanks in advnace
