  1. Hello,
    Just wondering if anyone could help. I did something stupid and started my blog using a numerical archive system, and now I'd like to change it so that the post title is part of the URL for SEO reasons. Is there any WordPress plugins that anyone knows of that could switch it without sending Googlers to invalid pages? Maybe some sort of redirector to the correct page?


  2. Camron: I went through a very similar experience on moving fr. Typepad to WP. Here’s my advice to you. If you don’t have a lot of posts using the default (numerical permalink) format I’d suggest you just switch over to the new format & not worry too much about losing the old links. ANd another thing, if you switch permalink formats, why couldn’t you leave the old permalinks in the old format? If you did that, then Googlers wouldn’t get invalid pgs. You just start henceforward using the new permalink format.

    Unless I”m misunderstanding what you’re trying to do.

    If you still want to convert all yr old permalinks to the new format then you would have to use redirection or htaccess/mod rewrite rules to convert the old format to the new. It’s what I do here at this blog. It’s a very tricky process & not for the faint of heart. I’ve only successfully done it with the help of Carthik Sharma. Otherwise, I would never have been able to pull it off myself.
