Because each platform has a unique structure and different rules for URLs, SEO URLs may be changed when migrating data from one content management platform to another.

Do I have have to use an extension from a third party or fix the URL structure manually?

  • I dont think that it is possible to migrate product cart to cart. After completing data transfer, all addresses change. It is difficult. – J. Weasley Feb 4 '16 at 8:33
  • Have got any examples of the urls? – Abu Nooh Mar 25 '16 at 17:53

On WordPress install a plugin to do 301 redirects... Yoast SEO and Redirection plugin both do this.

They allow you to input the old URLs, and map them individually to the new URL's.

I would advised first making a spreadsheet with all your old urls indexed by google, and submitted by your old xml sitemaps.

if you are not sure about your technical knowledge, I think the good choice is hiring a freelancer to check your problem. In my opinion, I do not think google ranking can migrate after changing website.

    This answer is not particularly helpful. It is little more than an external link and a suggestion to hire somebody. On this site we strive to put enough information into answers to be helpful without requiring either hiring somebody, or clicking to another page. – Stephen Ostermiller Feb 16 '16 at 10:13
