    Hi, everyone !

    So the structure of the site is pretty general and simple. For example,let's talk about structure of gym equipment website:

    HOME CARDIO STRENGHT BOXING

    and that is all, so equipment posts that are cardio related are sent to CARDIO and equipment posts that are STRENGHT related are sent to STRENGHT and all on that principle. But now after a while there is lot articles and now another structure makes sense and that is CARDIO -> TREADMILLS CARDIO->BIKES and etc.

    But the problem is all of my articles are indexed and their url is like ww.gymequipment/cardio/review-treadmill/
    And now I'm wondering how to make this better version of silo structure, and while doing that to keep rankings of that url's and posts. So I don't know, do I need to do for example 301 redirect to every post, or i can leave those posts and just create new structure and new post put in that categories but it does not make any sense to me.

    What should I do, If you understand my problem ?
    And sorry for grammar errors

    With 301's you'll decay some of that rank to pass it to the new page.

    Nope, I took the hit also when I 301'd some pages myself. I wanted to put the keyword in the URL (Thinking over the longer term it will provide a bigger boost to SEO).

    Luckily, most the SEO that I did I was able to re-point to the new page, not all of it though.

    Well how to structure it is not a problem as already I have a graph of silo structure made in past few days, but problem is redirection to new url posts that rank for given keywords, so i think 301 is only solution. But still thanks a lot
