First time here. I apoligize if this question is in the wrong place.
I have an e-commerce website that recently updated and can now change our URLS from ugly php... site.com/index.php?getpage=store&getsec=catalog&page=category&cid=3&theme=7 to something clean like site.com/shop/bags/brown.
Just to be clear, we didn't start over with the site, just changed some of the programming to allow the rewrite. We hired an SEO firm about a year ago that said we would not see results unless we did.
Should I do some kind of redirect to point to the new links? If so, what kind?
Should I point site.com/index.php?getpage=store&getsec=catalog&page=category&cid=3&theme=7 to site.com/shop/bags/brown?
(just an example url, clearly not really mine)
