    use 301 redirect in .htaccess

    Code:
    Redirect 301 /good-seo-in-2015-thats-good /good-seo

    you will still lose some ranking initially but if your URL change was well thought you will catch up later.

    I made a major URL change to my money site last year. I got all redirections correctly in place. Ranking and traffic still dropped at the start. It needed 2-3 months to recover but eventually the change paid off and I gained traffic (+ URLs look nicer than before which is good for CTR)
