Will Rankings Be Affected If You Redirect A Crashed WordPress Site To GMB Site?

By April

 

In episode 223 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked if a business’ rankings will be affected if its crashed WordPress site URL is redirected to its GMB site.

The exact question was:

QQQ: A client's wordpress website crashed. They have good organic and 3-pack rankings. I'm going to rebuild the original site but in the meantime I redirected their url to their GMB website and will definitely implement Local GMB. Should I be concerned that their ranking will go down while wordpress site is getting fixed? Thanks.
