We have a running site with X-Zero Classifieds 4.97.2, could you upgrade that software with Classibase without loosing all ads and every single links indexed by Google?
What is the cost of this installation and upgrade service?

It is possible migrate all your ads from your existing website. We have migrated one site previously from x-zero 4.95 to classibase. All ads, categories, custom fields, users (with new passwords) transferred without problem.
Detailed info about migrating existing site to Classibase can be found here http://classibase.com/how-to-import-ads-from-other-classifieds-website/
Old URLs cannot be transferred due to different structure in scripts. In our past work we transferred site with 3K ads which was getting 7,5K visitors per month. After switch visitors dropped to 5,4K then after 5 month recovered, after 12 month tripled reaching 23,7K visitors. Also this may depend for your niche and other dynamics of internet. All non existing URLs from old website will be redirected to home page.
Regarding installation it is very easy and we can provide assistance if you have difficulties installing for free.
For migrating your existing ads to Classibase it will be free only if you purchase “Forever plan” license. If you want to purchase 1 year license then we will ask 100$ for migration on top of 1 year license price.
Also you can migrate it on your own, just follow instructions posted in above link. We can verify your updated xml file via url after you update it with your server data and image url details. Then you can use that xml url safely in ClassiBase ad importer tool.April 5, 2014 at 09:45 #1672
Well, if we will loose all the classified ads indexed by Google through these last 6 years then no matter what software we use for update our site, right?
We will think about it and anything we will contact you again…
