deleting and creating new categories in site affects seo?

by @wissam (112), 1 year ago

dears, i am updating my site structure tree following Google taxonomy list, therefore I need to create new categories/sub-categories for our products, while linking the products to their corresponding new categories, the issue now is how to delete the old categories without hurting seo, i was thinking that maybe shopify handle the redirection automatically, or maybe i should point/redirect manually every old-category/product to new-category product manually, or simply submit new site map while doing nothing else. which practice is the best for seo in this case vs pros and cons? thanks

Every action needs to be carefully considered. Before you delete a category, redirect to a new category.
