I started a site about a week ago and it was indexing nicely, pages were rising in the SERPs, and then I realized my permalinks were wrong; that is, I was using the Wordpress default permanlinks with the date and the "index php", blah, blah, blah. So, I went in and changed the permalink structure to just the domain name and post title. This was done a few days ago, and there has not been any indexing of the new URLs. Should I bother with putting in 301 redirects or just let them index in time?
I think you should just let that fix itself. Google takes care of good content for its own interests, and would send its crawlers in time.
Doesn't WP do its own redirects already? That is, if someone clicks in the previous iteration of a post's link, they will automatically arrive at the new address.
I'm not too sure, maybe their dot com site does, but I did test this out by clicking on the links from Google search results and it took me to my site but the post wasn't there. I'm thinking either way it will get sorted out when the new URLs get indexed.

Alright, this is a very basic question (yes, I know it is, but.....) I thought I understood this but the other night, someone told me that indexing has no affect on page ranking. He went as far as to say that he has purchased page ranking from Google, etc. I have not heard of...

I've recently changed the title of a hub, and I noticed that it still has the old title when it comes up on Google search. Will Google update the title of my hub in future search results to match the new title of the same hub?

Have been through confirming Google-indexed-hubs in my HP's account; I had to use the Google search with first paragraph of each hub in a quotation mark. It was a hectic experience and am wondering if there is any other fastest way of doing this- All the same; the results were impressive as all my...

I just checked a few of my former lenses, and it seems like 301 redirects from Squidoo don't work anymore.Does anyone know anything about this? I used to have some social media traffic, mostly from Pinterest and Google+. That traffic is lost now. Cheers,

I don't know if this has influenced HP traffic of late or not, but the old squidoo.com homepage, which used to show the message about HP's acquisition and gave links to HP, is now offline and has been down for more than a week.http://www.isitdownrightnow.com/squidoo.com.html
