    Redirect with New Permalink
    I use my tag archive pages as my main pages on my one wordpress site. There aren't any individual 'posts' pages, just tag and category pages. After playing around, I decided to change the tag base from 'tag' to 'bands' as it makes more sense in the long run. This site is still relatively new so it shouldn't hurt at all. My question is, how do I get to redirect to Wordpress doesn't do it automatically (error page comes up) so I thought I would have to do it from my cpanel? But I'm not sure? I tried something like* redirects to* but that didn't work. Anyone have any thoughts?

    At first, I Mr. Google couldn't help me... but keep trying and he eventually found my answer. In case anyone has a similar issue, here is what i did:

    In the .htaccess setup with other redirects, I added:

    PHP Code:
    RewriteRule ^tag(.*)$$1 [L,R=301] 
    Not sure if this is the best way but it worked for me.

    I use a wordpress plugin called Redirection to handle redirects on my wordpress sites. It works very well for me and it is very easy to set up the redirects.

    A 301 direct is the very best bet for redirection. Preserves a majority of PR value of the existing page.

    affilorama, I've been using links as redirects on my wordpress blogs. I've gotten some decent traffic although my site is new. However still no sales. I'm starting to believe it has something to do with using the links to redirect to my merchants. Is this a terrible strategy to use for wordpress?
