    You do realize that that would completely destroy your rankings for visitors hitting those pages in the first place, right?

    Are you using one of the date related permalink settings?

    /%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/

    If, so it would not be too hard to set up rewrite rules or even a custom date based function based on certain conditionals.

    So while it would be tough to target each individual permalink, we could easily target old ones and redirect.

    If you redirect visitors like that, the bounce rate for those page will soon go up very high and eventually those pages shall lose their rankings and subsequently cause the site itself lose its ranking. Do you want to do that?

    Thank you for your advice I did not realise the consequences of doing something like that so I shall leave well alone.

    Thank you,
