Does changing URL structure effect SEO?

Url structure doesn't effect SEO so changing them will also won't effect anything. Unless you have changed the url but hasn't done properly the 301 redirect and now its showing a 404 error.

Changing the structure of url won't affect your SEO, but if you change the whole url it will affect your SEO a lot.

When any URL is changed, your organic search performance is going to change, which can be for the worse.

I don't know your experience with SEO. But if a proper 301 redirect is made from the old url to the new one then there will be no effect in SEO.

No, it doesn't affect SEO. Yes, URL structuring plays an important role if we use our keyword in our URL but if we are changing the URL then we can use 301 to redirect.

Hi,

No, changing URL structure won't affect SEO but if you change the complete site URL structure, then it surely affects it.

If you have done major modifications in url structure then definitely it will affect SEO. Because it is considered as another url. If anyone clicks on the old url it will display 404. You can solve this problem with 301 redirection
