I am taking on a redesign of a site that is nowhere to be found on google. Was built 15 years ago and SEO was not even a thought. I am going to building the new site with SEO very much in mind.
My question is since they are invisible to Google currently is 301 redirecting even a concern? Or is simply better to start from scratch and carry on correctly going forward. Everything is going to be different, linking structures, it will be a Wordpress site, ect. ect.
I gues a secondary question in this area would be this...there site is HUGE! There will not be a one to one conversion of pages since like I said we will be going with wordpress. If 301 redirecting is nessesary what will be the best way forward? In this situation would 301 redirecting the home page be sufficient.
Thanks in advance!
Mods, I think I am in the right forum, but please feel free to move me if I am not.
