  • Responsive and SEO implications?

    Hi all,

    Before I switch from a standard 3Dcart template to a (probably free) Responsive template, does anyone know if I should expect any sort of organic ranking implications? Will it be seen by crawlers as a massive overhaul, where the search engine (Google, Yahoo!, etc.) needs to be "reindexed" or otherwise reevaluated to see where the website should be ranking?

    Just curious, we have very high rankings - often #1 or #2 - for several popular keywords and phrases, and naturally I want to take every precaution to not lose those positions.

    Thank you in advance to anyone who can help!
    -James

      The ranking signal will only affect users searching from mobile devices. From everything I've heard, searches from computers shouldn't be altered. Your web pages will all still have the same URLs, images and textual content so there's no major reindexing needed and search engines won't see that any actual content changed.
