changing URL structure without losing historical chart data
I am updating hundreds page URLs on my website. For example, the I'm changing "live-cams" to "livecams" and changing the second folder from "cities" to the name of the state. See below for examples:
old URL structure
is being changed to new URL structure
The issue is that I do not want to lose historical information in Google Analytics. When I look at a chart of traffic, I want to be able to plot traffic in a graph with the old URLs and new URLs combined.
Can someone please help me the best way to do this.
