    Hi,

    anyways, I have a blog set up and it has some hundred backlinks, some front pages and etc, receives some traffic and now I feel that I should take it to the next level (changing to custom template and also the layout will change) meaning that I will change those links a bit.

    That means people cant access my pages anymore through google, but how to avoid it and how to keep backlinks and etc still. I know that I should do 301 redirect or something, but there are virtually thousands of posts that will change, what to do?

    Any ideas?

    Changing the template and/or the layout don't affect your links structure, so you don't need to do anything.
