Overview

Introducing the 'Slugs Manager: Delete Old Permalinks from WordPress Database' plugin, an essential tool for maintaining a streamlined and efficient WordPress website.

This plugin addresses a common scenario in WordPress content management: when you initially draft a post, WordPress generates a permalink, such as example.com/abc. However, if you later decide to update the slug to something like example.com/xyz, WordPress retains the original /abc as an old slug in the database. While WordPress automatically redirects visitors from the old URL to the updated one, these old slugs can accumulate over time, cluttering your database and potentially impacting site performance.

This plugin elegantly solves this issue by allowing you to clear these outdated slugs from the database. By doing so, it ensures that WordPress's redirection from old to new slugs remains efficient and effective, without the bloat of unnecessary data.

SEO Note:

It's important to note, however, that frequently changing URLs is not a recommended practice in SEO. Continual updates to URLs can lead to a chain of redirections, which can adversely affect your site's SEO performance. While WordPress handles these changes smoothly, it's best to plan and set your URLs with foresight to avoid the need for multiple revisions.

The 'Slugs Manager: Delete Old Permalinks from Database' plugin is designed to be a solution for occasional slug management rather than a workaround for frequent URL changes, helping you maintain a clean, organized, and SEO-friendly website.
