I’m soon to replace a friends old website (it’s his business so I’m nervous), but we don’t have proper access to the person who made it or much information about it. To compound my concern we have to firstly upgrade the Easily package that hosts it (can’t gain access via RTP otherwise).
Apparently this upgrade could wipe away the existing website. I’ve managed to gain the file names for the website’s pages but not the Meta Tags. If this happens I’ll need to quickly upload my RW version to take its place. I’d much prefer that I’ll be able to take my time and the old website survives the upgrade.
Are the Meta Tags so important that if I’m unable to finally access the old site (because it’s gone after upgrading), that the Google SEO will be badly affected? I think though that I could make a good guess at what the Meta Tags are and add them to the RW version that I’ll be uploading.
I would be very grateful of any advice, my friend says he can cope with a couple of days if the website goes down, but it’ll be nerve wracking for me. I’m not a complete RW novice but I’m no expert either.
