The focus keyword does not appear in the URL for this page. If you decide to rename the URL be sure to check the old URL 301 redirects to the new one! This is what it is saying on my Yoast keyword analysis. What should I do? My site has already been indexed in Google. I have searched my site at Bing and Yahoo in incognito mode. I'm still on Page 1 no. 3 in Bing and Page 1 no. 4 in Yahoo, but I could not find my site on Page 3 in Google anymore.

Do I need to crawl it because my site doesn't seem to appear in Google? Please help. Thank you :)

What is a 301 redirect?
In the simplest of "technical definitions", a 301 redirect is a permanent redirect from one URL to the other. A 301 redirect also is often described as a "change of address form" you might get at a post office. If someone doesn't know you moved, you want to make sure all your mail is forwarded to your new place.

For example, if your previous website was www.awesomewebsite.com and you wanted to change it to www.reallyawesomewebsite.com , you'd implement a 301 redirect from the old URL to the new one. Now whoever typed in your old URL (or clicked on a leftover link to your old URL), would automatically appear at your new URL.

Did you upgrade your Word Press? That seems to be causing a lot of kinks. If Robin Hudson can't help, perhaps Marion Black can. She's our resident Word Press expert. Good luck.

Sounds like Google needs to find the renamed page. I understand that may take a couple of days
