Step 4 - Create URL Redirects[top]
After moving blog posts, the posts will have new URLs with the destination Blog Page's slug.
For example, if the original Blog Page was www.yourdomain.com/oldblog, and the destination BlogPage is www.yourdomain.com/newblog, a moved blog post will change:
- Original URL (doesn't work): www.yourdomain.com/old-blog/MM/DD/YY/sample-post
- New URL: www.yourdomain.com/new-blog/MM/DD/YY/sample-post
If visitors try to visit the blog posts using their original URLs, they will be taken to your 404 error page. This may disrupt traffic to your site if you often share links to your posts.
To prevent this from happening, create URL redirects for every blog post. To learn more, visit Creating URL Redirects.
