I am going to do a similar test. However, I want to ask you... do you have an index on your site? Did you change that too? Or just do a 301 redirect for those specific pages?
I have a people search site and we have an index/directory/sitemap of names/pages that is linked from our home page similar to how linkedin and facebook have it. We also have an xml sitemap. I assume you have something like this as well? Did you change all these indexes/sitemaps to have the pages at the new subdomain or did you just build a 301 redirect for these pages?
