As I mentioned in the previous post, I found a plugin which can let you change your permalinks without losing the traffic youâ€™re already getting to your blog. This plugin actually redirect the old permalinks to the new permalinks of the same post.
Many people want to change their permalink structure,for example, from /%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/ to /%category%/%postname%/
But doing so will make all pages indexed by search engines become invalid,moreover, losing visitors from other sites or bookmarks that links to you.
There is a way to tell the search engines (and browsers) that the page has permenantly moved, and that the old address should be replaced by the new one . Itâ€™s called a â€œ301 Redirectâ€, also known as a Permanent Redirect.
I’ve tested the plugin and it actually works! Just key in the old permalink structure in the plugin’s option page and you are ready to go~! You can get more info from the author’s site.
