For a few reasons, including the Panda update, I'm thinking of moving my ecommerce pages to their own domain.
A problem I just thought of is Google Products. I rank well there for about 150 products, and Google has my 5 star rating from one of the ratings sites included in my listings. Enough people have mentioned that rating when calling that I don't want to lose it.
To move those ecomm pages, I'll have to do a 301 redirect. Does anyone know if Google Products/Merchant/Shopping (or whatever they're calling it this week) will do a 301, or will they want the new domain URL?
If there's a way to transition and keep the rankings and the ratings, that would be ideal.
