When launching my new site that's replacing the old, should I delete old one first or launch the new o ne and then delete my old site?
My current web site that's lost almost every bit of traffic was built over 10 years ago. Over those 10 years, it began fizzling based on the HTML5 hierarchy and all the Panda and other updates. It was built using Frontpage2002 which is no longer supported by Microsoft.
My new web site that's going to take it's place which is currently on a temp server will replace the old site, but of course have the same domain name and exact URL It will have over 9,000 different pages and have no inside "reciprocal links" page. It was built using Wordpress.
Question. When I launch new site, should I first delete old site and then launch the new? Or, Launch the new and go in and delete old site? Or does it really matter in the grand scheme of webbery?
