    Ok so I have had my main site up for a bit over a year. It is a PR4 for the main page and the blog page is a PR3. I just changed my template and also changed the URL structure of the site as well. So what is indexed in Google now if you click on it goes to a 404 page from my new site becuase that URL does not exist anymore.

    My question is though when I buld my NEW URL structure for all my blog post will that be considered duplicate content. I am pasting my old blog post under new URLS and the old indexed URLS go to a 404 page?

    What will happen to my "new site" if I do this?

    I no longer have access to the menu to 301. The site is now deleted per say. The only thing I have is the domain name and the new URL structure. If I can 301 the blog post how do I do that? And by 301 you mean have the old post point to my new url structure?

    If this cant be done then I go back to my original question of will it be dup content if I repost the articles to my new urls.

    If you repost articles to your new URL without 301 redirection from old URL-s its like you are on start. You losing all backlinks on your URL-s and ranking again.
    Search on Google how to do 301 redirection from your old URL-s to new.

    I'm assuming from your understanding of 301's etc that your site is just a WP one. If it is just install a plugin that redirects all 404's to your homepage. Simple.
