Good day members of WebProWorld.com. Today's scenario is a little un-usual, one of our beloved clients of whom worked with us during an A - B SEO test has decided to continue with site B, which was the original site in the first place.
The issue today is that site A, which is the one I worked on simply rocked in the search results, but of course in the time alloted I wasn't able to completely knock site B out of it's number 1 spot in the search results - for various reasons in which I attribute to trust, long-standing, strong back-links and so forth - although strangely enough I took out a slew of other sites - bumped them down a bit - but none of this is the real point.
The point is, now that site A will be taken down, so will exactly 19 blog posts - SEO and semantically optimized blog posts.
What the most optimal approach here?
I don't want to necessarily redirect all requests to site B and I don't want to lose all those posts either. I've downloaded them and want to use them for clients that are lacking in the search results.
Or if I do indeed redirect all requests to site B, will the articles at site A become useless? Are they useless already? I asked the last questions because they're mostly targeting a particular geographic location - if I reuse them on another client I'll definitely have to change a few things including the location.
As it stands, site A has strong rankings and is just under site B in many search results. If I use the articles somewhere else and do complete redirects to site B from site A will my articles become obsolete if placed on another site?
There's a number of questions here but I thank you all for your input!
