    hi guys

    I have a aged domain that ranks well, with even sitelinks showing in my SERPS. I want to change over to Wordpress platform (from html) so i am re-building the site.

    Can i get some advice on how to retain my current rankings?

    If you want to keep your current raking ...Concentrate on your Web site Permalinks...

    1. Try to keep them as they were ..
    2. if you cant keep them as they were....redirect the old URLs to respective URLs...(301)

    Let me know if you have more confusions.

    Definitely take aka_sam's advice and make sure all HTML pages are redirecting to the proper wordpress post/page.

    If your site is earning, I would avoid switching if possible.
