We have several pages that have vehicle names that include the new/current vehicle name as a page title and also H1. And the paragraph content mentions what the name of the vehicle used to be called. Example: ACME Truck formerly XYZ Truck. This is all because of our company buying out other companies, but we wanted people to know what the new name of a vehicle is and what the vehicle used to be called.
We now want to remove the old vehicle name from the content.
Is there a way to still reference the old vehicle name for SEO purposes in case someone searched for it in Google, and still be able to find the related vehicle page that will now only mention the new vehicle name in the page content and title?
I have thought about adding the old vehicle name in the meta description, but wanted to ask and see if anyone else had a better suggestion?
We use WordPress Yoast Plugin, but maybe there would be a good Schema plugin to use for this type of scenario.
