Question about rewriting the url of an innerpage

Hi Guys,

I am trying to get rid of some nasty urls that are too long and do not contain some crucial information. These were created on my first site and I didn't have a clue what I was doing at that time.

The point is, these inner pages have a good PR value, and I wonder if the PR and the backlink profile of these pages will vanish if I do decide to change them.

    You need to do a 301 redirect.

    You can do this using an .htaccess file and something like this rule

    Code:
    Redirect 301 /your-long-page.php http://www.yoursite.com/your-new-url.php
    you will not lose pagerank or backlinks

    Tomm,

    Thanks a lot for clearing that out for me. This is very helpful, as I can adress the issue knowing I will not lose any work done in the past.

    cheers buddie

    "muito obrigado" if that is correct
