How can I safely migrate blog categories without affecting SEO?

Hi all,

 

As the blog on our website has grown to over 60 articles, I want to create blog categories.

An app is unfortunately not an option, but I read it should be possible, when I create separate blogs and then link to reach blog in the store menu. Now I have a couple of questions that I couldn't find a definitive answer to.

  • Is there any risk for my SEO/rankings, as long as I redirect all articles to the new blog?
  • Do you recommend to resubmit my sitemap to google?
  • Wat is the most efficient way to create redirects?
  • Does Shopify automatically create a 301 redirect?
  • Is is also a viable solution to use labels?
  • Are there any other risks or better ways to do this that I'm not thinking about?

Thanks so much!

Lars

This article disagrees. It should be straight forward to create the categories and create redirects.

What I am concerned with is SEO impact.

 

Could you be specific why you say it requires custom development?
