I would like to change my permalinks to sitename/postname from sitename/year/month/date/postname.
I'm going on the advice in Yoast's post on SEO.
Before I do this I want to make sure that it won't hurt my search engine traffic and many backlinks to older posts.
I have about 300 posts over 5 years, with maybe 20 very popular posts that I wouldn't want to lose traffic to.
Is it safe for me to make this change? Is it advisable?
Thank you kindly for anyone to share their experience on this topic!!!
