Meta Tags, Meta Description, PHP, SEO

  • Hi,

    I have a question:

    I was wondering if you are familiar with SEO and PHP. You know how there is an index.php file and it contains meta tags and meta descriptions? Well I have that set-up for my current site (www.djizm.org) and we have good google rankings.

    If I were to change the site to (www.djizm.org/wordpress) (CSS), what implications will that make to our SEO?

    Is there a way to copy over the meta tags, meta descriptions, etc so it remains consistent and keep google rankings?

    Thanks!

    Use a 301 redirect done correctly and you should be OK on the SEO front. You may see a short-term drop, but in the long term you should be OK. 301 redirects tell search engines that a URL (or multiple URLs) have permanently moved to a new location.

    If you are moving everything at the root into a sub-directory, set the 301 redirect syntax in your .htaccess file to point all URLs at the root of your site to that new sub-directory. This will automatically redirect all old URLs to your new. Adjust the syntax depending on how you’re moving things around.
