I'm hoping someone has had experience withwhat I am looking to do. I want to switch my static HTML site to wordpress. The thing that is stopping me at the moment is that I have lots of high quailty natural links from Wikipedia and other high authority sites linking to pages deeper than my homepage. If I were to swap to wordpress the URL structure would change and I would lose all of my valuable backlinks.
Is there any way to do this? I have used 301 redirect when swapping domains. Would this be my only option for each and every page concerned? (mammoth task).
My other concern is that the pages listed in search engines would become redundant also.
I would really appreciate some expert advice on this.
Thanks in advance.
