Hi All,

I want to confirm my understanding. I have a well ranked website on an old platform that is finally moving. The old pages all ended with .aspx, and the new pages will not hae the .aspx on them. . . because the new pages will not have the .aspx, then there really is no need to try to mimic the structure of the old site urls, correct?

so they were https://www.sitename.com/car-parts.aspx

they will now be: https://www.sitename.com/car-parts

My sense is this is effectively a new URL, much like Google treats an url with a trailing slash differently than one with out, having the .aspx removed from the URL createas a new URL in Googles eyes. Because of that,- there is no use trying to mimic the old urls, since no matter what we do, the new ones will be different.

Is that correct in your view?

Keeping the URL‘s close is not going to help. So if you’re looking to change the structure, now is the time to do it since you’ll have to set up all the redirects anyway.
