Improving mechanisms for SEO: 301 redirect
Use a 301 redirect when you change the URL of a page. Type in your old URL then use 301 to redirect it to a new page (the 301 status code means that a page has moved to a new location.) This ensures search engines are directed to the correct indexed pages. Site Settings > Analytics and SEO > Tilda webmaster's panel > 301 redirect.
