Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
I've been tasked with taking an existing site of about 600 static pages and redesigning it and implementing a CMS.
The site has been around for a little over two years and has been climbing the serp's due to a large manual effort of optimizing every page.
My concern is that all of the static page url's that are linked to and indexed by Google will be replaced with the url outputted by the CMS.
I know there are ways to redirect and I could hypothetically keep all of the static (old) pages on the server and then also have the CMS, but I assume I could run into a penalty doing that?
Does anyone have an opinion on what converting to a CMS will do to my rankings?
