Powering almost 1 million websites, OpenCart is one of the most popular choices for shopping carts online. Choosing to switch from your current platform to this online store management system makes sense, but it’s essential that you include SEO Open Cart migration as part of your strategy. There is a massive amount of work to be done if you want to do this successfully, and our team is ready to help you make it happen.
Introduction to OpenCart Migrations
If Search Engine Optimization (SEO) has been part of your strategy for your ecommerce business, and it should be, you know how much time and effort is required to ensure you check all the boxes. If you migrate to OpenCart without taking OpenCart SEO migration into account, it could have serious consequences for your business.
Not migrating your SEO to OpenCart means more than having to put all that time and effort into it all over again. You also risk losing your site’s indexing and search engine rankings, which could lead to a significant reduction in your site traffic, ultimately affecting your bottom line. Our SEO Open Cart experts will manage your site migration effectively, helping you to enhance your conversion rates, reach a larger audience, boost your brand visibility, and improve your brand credibility.

Our Migration Process
Our OpenCart migration process ensures that all your SEO work on your existing site is carried over to the Open Cart platform. The process includes preparatory work, work done during the migration itself, and post-migration work.
Preparing for SEO Open Cart Migration
Our SEO Open Cart migration process starts with ensuring all elements of your existing site, such as content, data, and links, are accounted for. Once we have a record of all elements large and small, we can start making the move to your OpenCart platform. The site elements we take account of include:
Our SEO for OpenCart team will save a year’s worth of Analytics data, all URLs that generate traffic included, before the migration. This means we will have a record of URLs and comparison data should Analytics get damaged or lost during your site migration.
We take an account of all backlinks to your site using a tool such as Ahrefs.
Our team will take note of the correct Google Analytics code for your site as well as the type of implementation that is used.
Our SEO Open Cart migration experts will save a year’s worth of Google Search Console data, which provides us with crawl data for pre- and post-migration as well as ranking data for comparison.
We will use Ahrefs, Semrush, or a similar tool to identify all previous and current ranking keywords before your site migration.
Our team will implement a ‘wild card’ redirect, which will account for weird parameter URLs. The redirect will comb your existing site’s URLs for redirects and query strings to a single static link, which normally is your new site’s homepage. Using this and other data we’ve collected to this point, we will create a redirect map.
Our OpenCart SEO migration consultants will perform an audit of your existing site to look for duplicate content pages, 301 redirect chains, 404 errors, and main headlines (H1s) and metatags that are long, short, or missing. We will fix any issues on your new site, which should stabilize or increase traffic after your OpenCart migration.
We will take account of all URLs on your existing site which should be moved to your new site. Will ensure all URLs, especially those which generate traffic, are accounted for by checking the Analytics and backlinks data we saved. In addition, our team will check your Analytics data for weird URLs such as search parameters and results, and we’ll make sure they are redirected properly.
Our experts will submit your old XML sitemap containing all the URLs you want moved to your new site to Google Search Console and ensure all redirect chains are contracted.
