In another thread I read:
> “From what I gather, if a WordPress website uses a SEO plugin like Yoast and if the SEO isn’t hardcoded into the theme, there shouldn’t be any problems switching to a new theme?”
>I would agree with this. As long as the URLs aren’t changing (themes don’t touch those), and all of the meta data is left intact (using a plugin takes care of that), you shouldn’t run into any issues.
Could you tell me what plugin would do that? I’m not using an SEO plugin at the moment. I have a 500+ page site that’s been up for years, and I wouldn’t want to lose any google love by switching. Or maybe it isn’t something I should worry about? My site really needs an update.
