Just curious why are you transferring?

I think laravel is PHP web framework. WordPress is also PHP.
What difference it makes?
Correct me if I am wrong.

Generally which type of precautions should take, when we transfer websites from one platform to another platform, to maintain the rank?

Just check you have same URL or redirect them. Rest nothing matters.

Take care of urls… It must be exact same

Check you current meta tags… You will need to insert those meta tags in ur post templates

And your theme must be using some sort of schema for identifying last updated date, author name, title… Etc etc…

  1. Take backup
  2. Migrate first on localhost/test WordPress
  3. Test everything
  4. Check permalink, 404, canonical
  5. Setup redirect from old to new wherever applicable
  6. Content, category, etc
