    Hi,
    I have a few pages on my site that use bad urls, i would like to change the slug of these posts so the url becomes more seo friendly.

    For example :
    send old url : http://www.mysite.com/category/slugofthepostthatidontlike
    to new url : http://www.mysite.com/category/new-slug-more-seo-friendly

    I know there are many ways to do redirections, and i know there are many plugins... However I would like to know what is the best plugin that will do this for me ? Best would be defined by the plugin that uses the most efficient methods (seo friendly, keeping PR etc) and is the easiest to manage.

    Thanks !

    hi

    if you only have a few you actually don't need a plugin. just set up some 301 redirects in the .htaccess file in your WordPress root folder

    redirect 301 /category/slugofthepostthatidontlike http://www.mysite.com/category/new-slug-more-seo-friendly

    Here's a page with some info

    I dont have too many, but I was hoping to do this through a plugin, because I like to have everything in wordpress, easier to manage.

    Also, maybe there are some automated feature, for example, if i change the slug of a post, there is a redirection that will be created automatically from the old post. I dont know if any plugin does this but it would be nice, so you just have to edit slug and plugin manages redirections automatically.

    Thanks
