    Hello,

    let me explain my situation. Outdated web store is located in public_html/shop.php , while new Opencart store resides in public_html/shop/.

    Links look like this for old store: /http://www.old-domain.com/shop.php?cat1=first_category&kat=chocolate
    And for new Opencart store: /http://www.new-domain.com/index.php?route=common/home
    New Opencart store can also be accessed by /http://www.old-domain.com/shop/, but only index page, because all links are pointed to /http://www.new-domain.com

    As you may see, domain name for new web store is different, which is why I'm afraid that Google will treat it like a completely new web store and thus that my ranking in search results will drastically degrade.

    I was wondering how to make complete redirect from old to new store and tell Google to retain current website ranking? Do you perhaps have any other suggestions? Thanks!

    Hello :)

    You may want to post on a forum dedicated to search engine optimization techniques in order to get more user feedback on this type of question.

    Thank you.

    I think a 301 redirection will be useful for this issue.
