So here's the situation. I have a client who owns an authority website in his niche. The domain name is 14 years old. Now there is a section of the website, which consists of various pages that have content which is not related to my client's niche. Some of these pages have high PageRanks and are ranked well in the Google, which is where majority of the traffic comes from. My client wants me remove this section from the website, and set it up on a new domain name. So i'm thinking of doing 301 redirects on these pages pointing to the respective pages on the new domain, so that the new website continues to get traffic from Google. So my question is, will doing 301 redirects maintain the rankings for the various pages in Google? I searched BHW, and people have been saying that 301 redirects don't pass much link juice. If so, then what should I do to ensure that the new website continues to receive traffic?
