    So I'm going to be moving a site that is currently setup with .htm pages and the urls look something like this:

    "www.domain.com/stuff_more_stuff.htm"

    I want to move the site to wordress (install wordpress on my domain) without losing my backlinks and Pr.

    I've heard of 301 permanent redirects but how would I go about doing this. I have FTP access.

    Thanks!

    You can set them up using an htaccess file. If you google "301 htaccess" you'll find instructions. You can setup a redirect for each page since the url's will change.

    Thanks, all the pages names will be the same. However, in the url with wordpress they won't have the "_" it will be "-" and they wont end in ".htm" will the site wide option work?

    So new url with be: "www.domain.com/stuff-more-stuff"

    I hope I'm not being redundant, I just don't want to lose all that past work.

    In case anyone who uses wordpress has the same question as me I recommend something much easier.

    I'm not redirecting to a new domain, only working withing the same site.

    Use this plugin: redirection

    It redirects and so much more.
