Wordpress As A Cms
Posted 07 April 2009 - 02:59 PM
I am currently reading up on Wordpress and I will admit that I am not an expert on this yet so a few of my questions may be answered down the road as I learn more there but a couple of things really getting to me I wanted to get some opinions on were:
1) If I start a wordpress blog from scratch and post on it at a rate of say 2 times a month and it becomes popular what would happen when the content is moved from the page that new posts appear on as standard? I am past making sites in a page by page HTML format these days, too much work!
2) This one is more interesting. As part of what I will be doing with this blog/site I want to bring in another site I have with a page rank of 3 below this site. What I mean by this is I have my new blog and a link on there takes the user to a page which was previously the index page on this pr3 site, however, this page now resides on the same URL as the blog.
I am not really bothered about losing traffic or breaking anything when doing 2 above because brining this site under the umbrella of the blog is going to add to the site, bringing the old site under in this manner is actually something I am going to post about. If possible I would like to keep the rank inbound links associated with the pr3 when moving it and as far as I know the best way to do this is to 301 the pages individually which I plan on doing..... however, is there anything I can do when moving the old site under the new one to give the new site a bit of a kick start?
Thanks for reading as ever, if I have not been clear or you need some more details somewhere above please ask

On #2, Yes you'll want to do 301's. If the page structure is going to remain the same, with the possible exception being that all of those pages are going to be at a subdirectory level on the new domain, you may be able to do a bulk 301 move instead of having to do it page by page.
As to how it'll help the new domain, it'll presumably get some free link juice being sent by the internal linkage from those already established pages to the new pages. This is assuming you're linking to the blog from those moved pages.

I am not 100% sure about the linking back up to the main blog from the redirected site yet, I will give that some though too.
