I’m about to be redevelop a website that has good rankings in the search engines. The problem is that their website is very old and its all static HTML pages built in nested tables.
I did a quick search before making this post and saw some similar threads about how preserving the URLs and menu structure is important for the search engines.
Unfortunately, part of what I’m doing is integrating wordpress as a CMS so the URLs aren’t going to be able to stay the same.
What is the best strategy for when I go to redo the site? Should I keep the old site up and redirect to the wordpress site?
I write good HTML and css which I know helps a lot. I’m also planning on using the wordpress plugin All in One SEO pack.
