Thanks again, Tangor:
How many words are we talking about?
I will have to look at the individual pages and do a word count, but they certainly have stood on their own for a while. Probably around 1,000 to 1,200 words on each page, but combining them would make a single page around 1,500 words total.
Secondarily, since this is ecommerce, not strictly informational, where do you want your visitor to land?
That one's easy; the ecommerce page! :)
Third, I have no doubt that a rewrite which embraces both pages will result in a tighter presentation.
Yes, plus they both have some links in common (both to other internal pages and external sites).
maybe I will need to put an anchor tag near the top of the (combined) ecommerce page that links to section on the meaning?
I'd lump 'em together (and remember that 301 for the page which gets merged to the final).
Thanks for the reminder. Since the informational page doesn't convert, I had been using it as a sort-of Link bait page with an in-content link to the ecommerce page. So I should have at least a moderate amount of link juice that can be 301 redirected to the (combined) ecommerce page.
Now, is there any way to 301 redirect those facebook likes? Meaning, since the ecommerce page has a lot less FB likes than the informational page, I wish there was someway that the FB likes of the informational page could be "added" to the number of likes for the ecommerce page.
