    Hi all,
    I have a site called sachinist.com and from past 3 years I have used Permalinks as numeric but now as many SEO experts have suggested me to have it as post name,
    I can go to settings permalink and change the option there but problem is all my old links, numeric , shows 404 page not found

    This will make me lose some traffic, is there any way that I can keep old links as it is and change url from posts from now on ?

    Kindly let me know,

    Thanks in Advance

    Haven't used it myself, but I have read good things about the redirection plugin. Might be a good idea to backup your entire site first, of course, just in case.

    it's possible to redirect your old links to the new permalink structure if you add a redirect to your htaccess file. Check out this post: http://yoast.com/change-wordpress-permalink-structure/

    Works like a charm for me!
