Dear all, We are going to switch our IP adress this week-end at the router and then at the server level. It will be the first time since our site went live in 1999 and we are concerned about impacting our great Google "organic" rankings and our PR8 on the home page... Below are some advices I reaped on the forums..
- make sure that the site still works at the old IP - bring up the site at the new IP as well - switch the DNS to the new IP - when we see googlebot visiting the new IP, shut down the site at the old IP Please advise if this is the safest way to go? Thanks for your help Best regards Fred
