hi i would like to change my website template to a new one i have seen in your selection. How can i do this ? is it difficult ? will i still be seen in google as with my current site ? will i have to start from scratch ? sorry for all the questions.
Unfortunately, it isn't possible to change the template on an active site, although you can change every element of the current template via the Design menu.
If you wanted to choose a specific new template, you would need to start a new site.
thank you that was what i was thinking. can i transfer my website address to the new one site and then delete the old one ? would i have to get google to search for me again
Yes, that is possible - as long as you delete the old site first, you will be able to re-use the address immediately.
thank you for your help and one final thing will google read the new layout of the new website straight away or will it have to crawl it again and i have the current website connected to Analytics will that ajust its self or will i have to put the html code back into all the new pages ?
Not a problem. If you have an Analytics code, you will need to add it to the Services page on the new site. Google will need to crawl the new site before their results update, but anyone clicking on your site in results will be taken to the new one anyway.
thank you very much for your help. right new site here we come lol
So i'd loose all of my stuff on the other site?
Yes, the existing site would need to be deleted, content and all.
I am trying to delete my existing template but it is not giving me the option to. Could you delete it for me so I can start again.
I have deleted the site for you.
I dont like my web design choice how can i cahangeit. also can i upload my own logo thanks
You cannot change the template on an existing site, but you can delete the site and start over. I'd suggest having a read through our Beginner's Guide, which you'll find on the Help menu - this gives you all the help you should need to get your site up and running.
