Site redesigns

If your publication is working on a site redesign, keep the following points in mind during this process:

  • Our team does not assist with SEO consulting or crawl tests
  • If your redesign involves changing the domain of your site, review our article on changing site domain
  • If your redesign involves changing your site structure, update our record of your section URLs and associated labels within the Google News Publisher Centre once the change is live
  • We strongly recommend reviewing our guidelines on article URLs, and other technical requirements so that the layout and format of your site is easy for our crawler to read and decipher
  • Minimise the number of redirects needed to follow a link from one page to another

We recommend consulting the site management section of the Search Console Help Centre for additional tips.
