I have a few articles that are in the top 3 of Google search results. They are currently accessed by the URL
Now, I want to move that article to the other URL
http://example.org/different-name-myarticle1. The old URL is referenced in many places on the internet. I don't want to break the links so I setup a 301 redirect returned from the server with the new location. A browser works perfectly but I'm wondering if the indexing bot will follow the redirects and keep the ranking of my page? Are there any risks?
