How to change a page URL using SH404SEF

So today, I had a scenerio where I had to change a few URLs on a production website. The Old URLs weren't SEO'ed, and it was time to practice what I preach, so I'm doing optimizations on a couple sites.

 

Here's how to Change your Page URL for better SEO using SH404SEF

(SH404SEF can be purchased from Anything-Digital.com)

I want to change the following URL:
domain.com/category/nonSEOpage

to:
domain.com/category/SEOed-page

 

Going into the SH404SEF dashboard, I go to the URL Manager:

sh4041

In the search field, I type a part of the old url in to find the SEF url in the columns. Using the example above, I'd type in "nonSEOpage" to filter out most of the other pages for easier finding of the page I wanted to do the edit to. I click on the SEFurl and make the changes in the box shown below in the "New SEF URL" field. I just click save and I'm done!

This is how easy it is to change your URLs to something optimized for SEO!

But Wait! There's More!

In the image above, you see the "Title and meta tags" tab? This is where you should fill in the SEO'ed description of the page that's going to show up on Google search results in the description:
