Content migration, the right way
Every organisation is different, so every content migration requires different things. What kind of impact does this migration have on your website’s SEO score? How do you make an inventory of all your existing content? How much of the process can be automated?
That’s just a glimpse of all the questions you need to ask yourself when you’re working on a content migration. If you don’t know what you’re doing, you could do some serious damage to your brand, online presence and SEO reputation.
After years of experience with online content we know one thing: content migrations don’t need to give you a headache – if you execute them correctly, that is.
What iO can do as a content migration partner?
If you want a migration done, we start with a conversation. How much work is it? What is the deadline? And which CMS is involved? After we have asked our questions, we plan for you and our content managers to get to work.
Time for your own content migration?
Our experts are happy to tackle your challenges.
Why is content migration important?
Content migration is valuable for several reasons:
Content remains available and is not lost. For example, when you implement a new website or CMS. Or when you restructure your current website.
Maintaining or improving your current SEO rankings. If the content on the new website is not properly migrated, it can lead to a loss of rankings and traffic.
Better user experience. For example, restructuring your website and reorganizing content can improve navigation and ease of use for visitors. It can also make information easier to access and improve the overall user experience.
Unity and higher content quality. By reviewing and restructuring content, you ensure that all content is of good quality and that it fits your brand identity and message.

make the right technological decisions to support your growth.
Our expert views
- Today, even innovation and transformation processes are highly subject to innovation and transformation. Uilke Duinstra, innovation strategist at the Utrecht campus of iO, is getting more and more questions from customers like: “We are a mobility company, but we also want to enter the energy market. How do we do that?” or “We are a B2B company, but how do we also become B2C?” More generally, it concerns questions such as “How can we develop relevant new services step by step, without immediately plunging into a multimillion-dollar project we’re not sure will work at all?” These kinds of issues, which show that domains and sectors are increasingly fading, require a new approach to innovation processes.Read more

Digital transformation: past, present, and futureThe time for digitisation is now - not later, tomorrow, or next week.
