I have a website that has great search ratings(comes up on page one for some basic key word searches) and I now need to make some major changes to the site which include eliminating some pages that no longer apply and making some big text changes in others. I am linked to many sites some of which I don’t even know who they are, so I cannot redirect them individually. I do not want to loose my status so wondering if there is special coding I need to put in to redirect these links? Are there other things to do? Not sure how this actually works. I really am a novice. I have also not found dreamhost/wordpress to not be very friendly to novice website makers so even consider changing my host. Does this complicate the above situation even more?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Also can’t seem to find the page on Dream host where they can tell me what my website traffic history is.
