What is SEO URLs? What does SEO URLs for?

SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is a protocol for specifying addresses on the Internet. The purpose of SEO is to make your website appear on the top of searching result. Based on deep analysis of Internet user’s behavior and interests as well as using keyword analysis tool. The marketers collect important and potential keywords and put a high degree of effort to optimize them. If succeed, your keywords get high rank amongst millions of related websites; and therefore definitely bring a huge opportunity to access with more customers. Another benefit is to push company brand name into customer’s mind, and it is apparently the desire of every e-commerce store owner.

Why SEO URLs may be changed after migrating data from one store to WooCommerce?

After considering we have determined the two main reasons below:
– Each platform has a unique structure and a different rule of URL texture
– Users have used an extension of a third party or fixed URL structure manually.

How do other companies do?

Many companies normally provide automated migration services. In reality, after data is migrated to target store URLs may change; especially when structures between source and target store are different. These companies could only perform preserving SEO URLs for the default type of SEO URLs from a few store such as: Magento, OpenCart, CS-Cart, PrestaShop, VirtueMart, WooCommerce and osCommerce. You can see that they can not migrate for all with their automated tool.

As the matter of fact, I’d say that preserving structures of URLs is not a travial thing but it’s still possible. As an alternative to service mentioned above, I’d also suggest Cart2Cart. It’s capable of keeping WooCommerce SEO URLs untouched after the transfer as well. For that, there’s an additional migration option “Migrate categories and products SEO URLs”.
