Will I lose Google Rankings if I build a new website on the 7.1 builder?

I built my website on the 7.0 builder, and would very much like to utilize the 7.1 builder as there's more features that I'd really like to use on it. However, I do not want to lose my search ranking if I switch. Does anyone know if this will affect my search results if I build a whole new website on 7.1 and switch my domain over? All the URLs would be the same, just on a different web builder.

Hi @Hshelton,

Your rankings will probably temporarily drop - when I've made significant changes on a website before this typically happens.

As long as you make the URLs exactly the same and resubmit your sitemap on Google Search Console, you can limit the damage to your rankings and will soon be back to normal.
