And where am I now? To be honest I am back to where I was. I need another week to analyse the data I think, so please pop back to my blog in 7 days if you are interested in knowing the effect of going from a website with a .co.uk to a .com URL.
This will give me another week of the changes impacting which will hopefully tell me more. And also to record what I had to do to make this change, which will hopefully help you if you are thinking of changing your top level domain.
There is lots to know. Here are the headlines
1 – Website traffic volumes
These plummeted, but came back strongly and my search volumes have gone up.
2 – Keyword rankings.
These went off the scale, but are gradually restoring themselves.
3 – Analytics
Things have changed here – I need more time to analyse and extract the data.
4 – Demographics
I now get more global visitors to my webiste.
5 – Work
The number of business enquiries has gone up. If this does not happen none of the rest matters.
Check back to my photography blog in a week for a full update.
