I'm a web-loving, webapp maker kinda guy. Here are a few things I have created for my employers, my freelancing projects and my own personal projects

When you have to completely redesign a successful website with 500K+ views a month, what do you have to think about?

The most important factor is to keep the website successful.  In many high-traffic websites, this often times require all SEO factors of a website to remain intact.

There was a requirement to move the jsp-based Findlaw.co.uk website into a WordPress website.   I was the sole developer task with porting this website (along with all 3,000+ pages) into the WordPress CMS.

I had to come up with a plan to programmatically copy all the pages and articles from the old website into a format that can be easily imported into WordPress.   I also had to retain all URLs and SEO tags are identical to the old website.

I was able to successfully complete this huge project in 2 months and keep the traffic steady.

UPDATE(2017): The FindlawUK division is no longer being maintained.
