I have a website that is well tracked by google search. Every links on the sitemap are crawled and indexed on the search console.
I have a slight adjustment on my website, and it costs me to change the URL path of a few pages (only the URL path, the domain is not changed).
https://mywebsite.com/the-previous-path.html // changed to https://mywebsite.com/the-new-path.html
The URL path change is affecting the SEO of my website. whenever someone performs a search on google using relevant keyword then the old URL is still the one that shows up (it's expected).
I put some redirection on the backend to avoid problems. so anyone who is accessing the old path will be automatically redirected to the new path (301 Moved Permanently).
my question is how to like replace the old URL path on the search console with the new one. I've resubmitted my sitemap.xml contains the URL adjustment, but I still see that the path is not indexed, even after more than a week.
I want whenever someone performs a search using a relevant keyword, the new URL path is the one that shows up, not the old one. how can I achieve that?
