The website design is not actually related to SEO if you keep everything else SEO friendly.


And I have a similar question. Is it possible the online business is not successful just for the design?

I have wondered the same thing Anet-M...but i have recently seen some sites with horrible designs who are ranking regularly on page 1. So I'm starting to think that the sites design doesn't have quite as much effect as I previously thought.

I have done quite a bit of design changes to my site and have maintained my ranking in several keywords.

The website design should be SEO friendly and complement the niche that your site is in. Google will count the SEO factors on your site.

In some cases yes, major changes to the websites structure, can shake the rankings very hard. For instance, assume dozens of your internal content pages have their own incoming links and then suddenly you change their URLs, move from HTML to PHP. Naturally the links will not seem that relevant in such cases. Or when you quickly alter titles and descriptions of dozens of pages on your website, the ones already cashed and indexed by Google and use completely new stuff, you can expect a drop in rankings in such cases.

I don't think so as long as you don't change the content of your site

Yes, it can affect ranking.. changing design of sites means changing many things like font, color, size of text, changes in title formation etc.. all these are part of SEO.

Well, I think it's not harm cause seo. Because you only and only change the Design not content. Your site harm if you change in content and meta details. If you do so than you have new keywords and start work from beginning.

If you still use meta tags (the same title!), the same domain name and some of other tags (H1, alt for the same images and title for the same links), this won't be a problem!

If you change the structure of your content, yes it will cause seo effects.

I think what google need is content which can be browsed in a easy manner.
If you are improving your site design, it should not affect anything in seo.
