Hello friends,

If you have to change all URLs anyway because of a website redesign and CMS change, then sure, make clean, keyword-rich URLs that look nice in the search results. But if there's nothing really wrong with your current ones other than you don't like the way they look or you think you need to add keywords to them, it's probably not worth the hassle that goes with such a major change to the structure of your website.

Thank you

Before thinking of changing your URL to reflect your keywords, what about the ranking of the current URL or has it not been ranked yet.
If I were you, I will prefer to add subpages that contain the targeted keywords, this way you wont lose your ranking.

I think there is no need to change your url. if you change it, then Google will treat it as new url. You will be loosing all the benefit & backlinking presence made by the previous url.

Yes it is very important, you must change all urls (with keywords included). Plus if you do not want rankings to be lost use redirects from old url to new url as pernament 301
