currently I´m trying to replace my actual website, with a some a wordpress theme.

I want to move this wp site: REMOVED
into the root folder: : REMOVED (the actual website is on this folder)

How can I do this without that my daily traffic shuts down?


I suppose the actual links have to me integrated into the new site, to avoid "dead links" ?

Can the links of my actual website be forwarded automatically to my new website?

How should I execute this website move (or replacement) from a SEO point of view?

Thanks in advance!

Redirect them to the URL with 'blog' removed.

RewriteRule ^(.*)/blog/(.*)$ http://%{SERVER_NAME}/$1/$2.html [NC,R=301,L]
