My old site is still active, tspguitar.com. I am going to use it for other purposes, until my contract runs out.
Several pages on it related to guitar reviews are currently landing on Google’s first page, even though I knew nothing about SEO when I made the site.
I do not want to lose that exposure. In fact I would like to use it to bolster the new site. I already posted pages on my new site containing the contents of the entire old site.
I would like to set something up on that site (not a WordPress site) so when someone clicks on one of those Google links it actually redirects them to the same article or review, but on my new Dreamhost WordPress site.
I assume I can set up some redirect code, and just remove the original page from the menus and look of the old site when I revamp it.
But I thought someone here might know the best place to learn how to do that, or might be able to just tell me, if it is actually an easy thing to do.
Not ready to redo the other site yet, but I will probably start on that next week.
