    I have question for WordPress experts. I want to change/organize some categories. But I don’t know actually, if i change the categories name or move to another, backlinks will be lost or not?

    I guess, both permalinks will work for limited time but I need more information about that.

    Thank you.

    If you change a category name, any backlinks to the category you deleted would be broken ( i.e. example.com/category/deleted-category/ ), but if the backlinks were for the posts themselves then those would not be broken.
