How long an SEO migration takes depends on the size of your website, how much content you're moving, and how many audits you need to do before and after the move. A website with 100 pages will take much less time to make than one with 1,000 pages, which will take much less time to create than one with 50,000 pages, and so on. Some SEO migrations take three months to plan and carry out, while others only take a month. It's important to give yourself enough time to plan, build a staging site, do quality assurance and audits, and then put the plan into action. To be safe, we suggest giving at least three months. But as always, it depends on the resources you and your team have, so make sure to talk about it a lot.
The cost of SEO migration depends on how big the project is. It depends on what kind of migration you're doing, how much content you need to move and develop, how many 301 redirects you need to set up, the size of the website as a whole, an audit of the staging site, and then implementation.
Your search engine rankings, traffic, and sales are at risk if you don't act quickly.
