hello guys i am thinking to do some imporvements.

recently i've been using this structure:

site.com/view/1234/key1/index
site.com/view/1234/key1/article
site.com/view/1234/key1/more

etc..


I am thinking to change the structure removing first 2 dir of path (/view/ and /1234/), so urls would be:

site.com/key1/index
site.com/key1/article
site.com/key1/more

consider the website is young so it would not lose backlinks to those pages... do you think it's worth it?

Thanks for all help.

if it is a brand new website with no backlinks then it is worth it. otherwise it is probably not worth it.

if i was looking to boost my google rankings i would rather spend the time building new content (to boost my internal links and attract long tail traffic). i would also reverse engineer my competition backlinks. these actions would probably be more helpful to my google rankings then having to redo my url structure and dealing with massive amounts of 301s.
