Will redirect pages affect search engines' listing & ranking?
Posted on 2005-03-01
Need experts' advice:
I have a site built first for local (Chinese) and using a sub-domain for English.
Due to the decision to develop internationally, I am checking the way to reconstruct my site so that the English language pages would be in the major domain for better development.
The problem is, there are many links to the web pages for the English sub-domain. It is not possible to delete all these web pages. If I use redirect method, will this affect the search engines' listing and ranking? Is there a better way to proceed?
