Our current GWT setup reflects our current setup of 23 geotargetted individual sites each on its own subdomain of the same parent domain.
We will be moving all to subfolders/subdirectories all running under the www subdomain of the same parent domain.
Cannot currently see a place or form to allow us to manually edit the URL for each of our sites within GWT to make the change from uk.xxxyyy.com to www.xxxyyy.com/uk
The "Change of Address" option seems to be for switching to different parent domains which isn't what we are doing, everything will be under www.xxxyyy.com (which is also currently registered as a site itself within GWT, it is a global landing page)
Do we just keep the 23 subdomains in GWT as they are and just run 301s to the subfolders or is there a way to notify Google of the change within GWT? DO we create 23 new sites within GWT reflecting the subfolders?
Thanks in advance for the insights.. Have searched high and low but cannot find a definitive response to our particular problem even though I would have thought it was quite common.
All the best.
