How to Change the URL of Your WordPress Page

Table of Contents

As a website owner, you may want to change the URL of your WordPress page for many reasons. It might be because you are renaming a page or post, or you may have an old URL that has been indexed by Google and would like to update it. Whatever the reasons, changing the URL of your WordPress page is a simple process that can be done in just a few steps. Let’s take a look at how it’s done.

Changing Your Page’s URL

The first thing you’ll need to do is log into your WordPress dashboard. Once logged in, go to Pages > All Pages and select the page whose URL you would like to change. Then click on Edit underneath the title of that page and scroll down until you see Permalink. This is where you will find your current URL and can change it as needed.

Once you’ve changed the permalink, make sure to save your changes by clicking Update at the top right-hand corner of the screen. And that’s it! You have successfully changed the URL of your WordPress page without any problems or errors in just a few easy steps.

Using Redirection Plugin

If you are changing an existing URL that has already been indexed by search engines such as Google, then it’s important that you set up what is known as a redirect from the old URL to the new one. Redirects help preserve any link juice or SEO benefit from incoming links pointing to pages on your website and ensure visitors don’t land on 404 pages (pages not found).

To set up a redirect from an old URL to a new one, you can use a plugin like Redirection which will allow you to easily map these two URLs together so that visitors who type in or click on an old link are automatically taken to its corresponding new address instead.

Conclusion

Changing the URL of your WordPress page is not only easy but also essential if you have an old link indexed by search engines like Google or need to make changes due to renaming pages or posts on your website. By following these simple steps and using plugins like Redirection when necessary, updating URLs should be no problem at all! So get out there and start making those changes today!
