- Changing URLs in Google's Index 1 answer
I need to change the address of one of the pages of my site.
I will create a new page with absolutely the same content and the same structure of the page (no changes to the content of the page at all, 100% copy), and then I will do 301 redirect from the old page to the new one.
So for example:
example.com/somegoodpage (the old page)
Will 301 redirect to:
example.com/goodpage (the new page, exactly the same as the old one, except the URL).
How will Google respond to this kind of URL change in terms of search result positions?
Maybe this shouldn't be done at all because Google does not like this kind of redirect and heavily punishes for it? If so, maybe there is another way to do this?
