Php to html now search engines cant find me

Thanks to Jekyll, I have successfully transitioned an old php site to a shiny new static html site, but now I’m having issues with search engines caching the php urls and not using the html urls. How do I get the search engines to recognize that the entire website no longer uses the php extensions?

You should create redirects to the new url’s and submit a sitemap.xml with the new url’s.

Yes. A plugin like redirects will solve it.

If you don’t know how or want less effort, just add a sitemap for your current pages and Google will eventually deindex the old missing pages and index the new ones

Thank you. Submitting a new sitemap.xml did the trick.
