    The problem is that if Google already indexed the page and you change the permalink the page is “Not Found”. So when ever I change the permalink, I try to make an effort to remember to manually 301 redirect the old page to the new page.

    You can also check for page errors in Webmaster Tools by going to Crawl – Crawl Errors – Not Found (look for tab on right)
