    • Redirecting Your Old Tumblr URL to Your New One

    After you have changed your Tumblr URL website address name, not one of your followers will be lost. The whole blog is still the same – only the URL website address name was changed. This means your website can still be viewed by you followers through their own Dashboard but they won’t be able to find it if they are going to visit your site directly – by typing your address on the address bar of their browser.

    That’s why you need to redirect your old URL to your new one –so that all of your followers and new visitors will be redirected to your new site.

    1. Right after you have changed your Tumblr URL website address name, you should immediately create a new Tumblr blog that has the name of your old blog.
    2. After creating your new blog (with the old Tumblr name), you can either have all of your website’s traffic automatically redirected to your new Tumblr blog URL. You can do this by editing your new blog (with the old name). Go to ‘Appearance’ then ‘Page’; press ‘Edit’ then hit ‘Redirect’. Provide your new Tumblr URL the save.

    Or you can create a landing page on your Tumblr’s main page that will tell your visitors that your website was ‘moved’. Be sure to provide the new link of your new Tumblr URL so that your visitors will be able to visit your new Tumblr blog site immediately.
