    Will redirect kill the traffic?


    Hi;

    I have a website that gets 10-20k visits per month.

    I want to redirect that traffic to my new site.

    If I use redirect via cpanel, is it gonna kill the traffic or will it continue to receive and redirect?

    Thanks

    Search engine traffic will dip slightly while they catch up but then recover. Make sure you're redirecting properly with 301s and follow the other sorts of best practices when it comes to identifying pages - canonicals, sitemaps, etc.

    We use Cpanel, not hand coded.

    Sending from mysite.com to myOtherSite.net

    Whats the best option?

    Hi,

    Yes of course you see some dip in traffic and rankings. You might need to work on the content, description and backlinks to the website after redirection is complete. Take care of your canonical and sitemap when redirecting.

    Use 301 redirect to send traffic to your new website. There can be a minor loss in traffic not much.
