We recently created a new website for our company and put it on a new URL, too. Since the new site went live in May, we have left our old site up at the old URL, and we have a notice there with a link directing people to the new site. We don’t want to take the old site down yet because it shows up well in search results, and we want to give the new site time to work its way up the search engine ladder.
My question is this: If we redirect our old site to the new one, will the old one be removed from the Google search results or be penalized in any way? Also, will the new site benefit at all from the search strength of the old site if we redirect it?
Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated.
