Grief with Google Apps Website Migration

PdbAqB (1534237) writes | more than 4 years ago


PdbAqB writes "DO NO EVIL? Google Apps website migration has resulted with my site losing all backlinks, Adwords and ultimately my site's Google Ranking due to Google's redirection not being a permanent redirection (301 redirection).

Why do I need to migrate my site from Google Apps: Google Page Creator is being shut down & therefore Google Sites are being moved to a new location which "does not support JavaScript, some forms of HTML, or web hosting ... Users who don't want to be moved to Google Sites have the option to download their content, host it on another service, and redirect their existing URL"

My problem is that Google Apps email is a fantastic service that I do not want to lose; however, their web services are poor and users are punished if they move their site to be hosted elsewhere.

What solutions are available (Google has not helped with this problem on the multiple attempts requesting help)?"
