Will I lose my ranking if I make major changes to my site?
I'd like to pretty much re-build my current site.
It has the main site and 16 subdomains.
1. I know wordpress is supposed to be better for the search engines to pick up etc, and I would love to have an affiliate blog on each subdomain - is that ok to do? Or won't the search engines like this? I have some great ideas of what I want to do with each one, as they are currently going stale.
2. I have some pretty high ranking pages on the website and am worried that if I change to wordpress from the current site format (I use dreamweaver) how can I keep those high ranking page names etc?
For example: (this is a mock url for the sake of this post) http://www.mywebsite.com/directory/the- ... he-mat.htm
What will happen if I change to wordpress? Can they be re-directed? Or will that just cause havoc?
3. Also does it matter that I have the main site and subdomains on the same server?
Sorry for all the questions. I want to include as much detail as possible in my business / website plan so I know exactly where I'm headed.
