Yes you would want to set up 301 redirects.

Is it really a necessity that the urls change? Are changing your back end application or something similar? I ask because if it's not really necessary you're creating a lot of extra work for yourself.

Yes, According to me more the sub category less the page rank, and here i reduce the one sub category that why i suggested to change the url pattern.. does it worth for page rank

It's not the URL appearing to be a subcategory that reduces the PageRank. It's how you're linking to it from the other pages of the site. You could name the URLs anything like /dir1/dir2/dir3/dir4/dir5 but if that resulting page was in your main nav. linked to from every page it would have a lot of the PR passed to it.

Or you could have a page that appeared to not have any directory just /page.html and not have it in your nav. but only linked from one page of the site and it's PR would be lower.

It's not the way the URL looks that effects this, so you would be wasting your time to change the URLs if your goal is to increase their PageRank.

Start with the [url=http://www.highrankings.com/forum/index.php/topic/833-tips-for-new-seos/]Tips for Newbies[/url] and any posts you see pinned to the top of each section of the forums. It'll take a couple of days, but those will get you pretty much set.

Think of it as cramming for a final. wink1.gif
