    Hi guys
    I know this is not GP related but thought I’d be cheeky and ask if any of
    you have dealt with this before, as I can’t find a direct answer.
    I need to clean up a shed load of categories so my Taxonomy is neater ( and smaller).
    Will changing a parent category to become a child category harm my SEO?
    e.g site.com/category/1950-hair, to become a child e.g category/1950-fashion/1950-hair/
    On a test site I tried it and there are no apparent broken links with new taxonomy.
    But when I google the old category, it clicks through to site.com/category/1950’s hair
    Will it just update when Google next fetches the url, or do I need to redirect /1950’s-hair/ to /1950-fashion/1950-hair ?

    Cheers !

    Hi there,

    Have you tried asking the question to one of the SEO plugins’ support?

    They would likely have a better understanding of this than us 🙂
