I have developed a new website for a company. It has been up for a few months and is doing ok on the serps .... dancing around a bit but is ranking quite well for a number of keywords. The company has another website which has been around for around 4 years. It does not have a lot of content and so does not rank very well in the serps. They have decided to get rid of the old website and just concentrate on the new one. I have redirected every page in the old website to the equivalent page on the new one using 301 redirects in the .htaccess file on the old site. Although the old site was not doing well in the serps it was at #1 for the main company / product name. This name was in the old domain name. The new domain is currently ranking at 22 for that keyword. My question is ..... will that keyword ranking for the old website be transferred to the new one? I hope this question makes sense!
