    I have a friend who is a lawyer. They have an EMD on wordpress, however, built out another site on another url that they have heavily marketed.

    They are often searched for directly by name and the EMD comes up first.

    The wordpress site is horrible and has no info. Until they convince the company who built both sites to build out her EMD, would you personally think they should redirect to the actual built out site? Neither page has high PR or backlinks.

    It is more than plausable that the site you redirect to will recieve similar rankings to the site being redirected assuming the on site is taken care of.

    You have nothing to lose by trying it, just be sure to take a backup and have the abiltiy to restore the site and remove the 301 just in case :)

    you can redirect the url and still leave the wordpress blog up ,you can still keep the existing posts up and have admin access to the rear end
