That seems logical to me.
So the questions is what happens if the site structure gets changed and

I used to leave the page path the sames but lately I've been changing
the page path to reflect the hierarchy:
That seems more logical but presents the problem of bookmarked pages.
Rearranging sites is common, how do you handle this? (this is all CMS of

Re: moving pages and site structure
Make sure the server sends the appropriate HTTP status code when the old
page is requested. In this case I would think 301 - Moved Permanently
would be appropriate.
In an ideal world, the browser would automatically update its bookmarks
when it received a 301 to reflect the change, but no browser actually
does that AFAIK.
