Site rebuild. $950 to $4900 is a typical range. Variables depend on site complexity, required functions, and design requirements. Quotes will be provided for each project.

One of the biggest problems with a site rebuild is the potential for broken links from external sites. Think about the other sites (associations, social media posts, and other businesses) that have linked to your content.

Not only do these links bring you visitors, but they also increase your authority with search engines. When they break, you lose both.

We take this into account with every site rebuild. And have extensive experience rebuilding broken sites.

With all our site rebuilds, we offer the following:

  • All the above features (in a new site build)
  • Output detailed sitemap of current URLs
  • Recreate the same permalink structure for all URLs.
  • Map all current URLs to URLs on the new site
  • Redirect all URLs
  • Check and fix all broken links.

Migration to WordPress

Closely related to a site rebuild is moving a site from one content management system (CMS) to WordPress.

WordPress is the most versatile CMS for site building. But many sites begin on other platforms. We can migrate your Wix, Joomla, Drupal, Squarespace, or any other platform to WordPress. Contact us for a quote, based on your specific site.

Migration to WordPress is just part of a site rebuild. We will manage your URL structure, to prevent unnecessary traffic and domain authority loss.

Sometimes a well-meaning employee will upload a glitchy plugin, or maybe your site has been infected with Malware. Sometimes a contact form will glitch or your web server will need to have the php version updated.

SEO Prices

Optimizing sites and content for search is critical for generating organic traffic.

And an SEO audit is an important first step. We’ll identify problem areas and growth areas.

SEO Site Audits: On-Page, Technical, Off-Page

There are three types of SEO audits: On-Page, Technical, Off-Page

  1. On-Page Audits primarily cover content (text, images, meta descriptions). It also includes navigation and user experience.
  2. Technical Audits review site performance (speed, security, structure), site structure, and usability.
  3. Off-Page Audits cover backlinks and unlinked brand mentions on other sites.

Because of the crossover between on-page and technical audits, we generally audit both at the same time.

Our Full Site Audit includes all three components (On-Page, Technical, Off-Page).

  • Small Business Site (Up to 500 pages) On-Page/Technical SEO Audit ($795) or Full SEO Audit ($1495).
  • Large Content Site (1,000 to 50,000 pages) On-Page/Technical SEO Audit ($1795) or Full SEO Audit ($3295).
  • Authority Site (50,000+ pages) Pricing varies and will be quoted.

Audit costs vary for the size and complexity of each site. The above pricing is a reference and subject to change for specific sites. A quote is provided for each audit before beginning.

Here’s why an SEO audit will help your site.
