Yes - all the redirects were in place before we flipped. We had a few glitches in that department - but they were fixed right away. The reason the urls HAD to change somewhat if because if you're going from HTML to wordpress you CAN'T make them exactly the same because for example:
You lose the .html
But beyond that - the company I hired to move my site did a very SLOPPY job at keeping titles and urls as close as possible. And this was a company recommended at < a well regarded source >. I was warned to just do it myself and I wish I had. Hindsight.
My site has never recovered after the April 11th hit. I don't know if this url change thing is what did it, or the format change as a whole and Google saw my site as a new site and sandboxed it (for 10 months+) or it was a change to a new server 3 months prior....
I just don't know? I DO know my site is better than ever and I am hoping the next MEGA crawl or dance or whatever, that my site is cured from Pancer. LOL
[edit reason] switch to example.com - stop the autolink [/edit]
