    Changing Url from Sentence case to Lower case


    Hi

    I am changing my website to new one.
    So I am changing url which was in sentence case to lower case.
    ie : www.example.com/study-abroad/Canada (sentence case) to www.example.com/study-abroad/canada (lower case). Does this change affect seo?
    What are the steps to be taken before changing url case?

    They are two distinctly different urls.

    You will need to use a 301 redirect on the old url to the new url or face losing any traffic and rankings you had for the old url.
    If you have never failed in your life, you have never achieved anything Noteworthy !

    Is your site live? or you are changing URLs before the site is live? you can change the URLs as you shown but only changing URLs won't enough. Make sure you redirect them properly.

    If it is WordPress, you just have to install Yoast SEO Plugin and it will take care of the rest. Use 301 redirects, if it is HTML or PHP. and Update sitemap and notify Google using Webmaster tools.

    You can rename and rewrite your URL.I don't think so it gives bad impact on your website.
