Changing Permalinks without affecting SEO? (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I have a wordpress blog that runs an ecommerce website.
    I have been doing some SEO for it but have just recently noticed that my permalinks are still on the default p=123.

    I will be changing this to a "post name" for regular posts and "shop base" or "shop base with category" for my products.

    I just want to know if changing this will be affecting my SEO or will it be re-directing old links automatically to the new format.

    Thanks!

    Ugly links should automatically redirect to the new permalinks. Search engines will see a 301 response code indicating that the relevant posts/pages have moved permanently.

    Hi Cyril,

    Lol, "ugly" links... the term made me laugh.
    Thanks! I feel a lot better now I will have pretty links from now on :)
