Thanks for referencing the other discussion going on (I'm actually trying to clean up another process we have here that deals exactly with that problem).
As for my original question, let me clarify what I meant by a directory level redirect. We run a media site so if we did a page by page redirect it would look something likes this:
Old page: www.mysite.com/story/story-title-1/2013-08-29
New page that it will be redirected to: www.mynewsite.com/story/story-title-new/2013-08-29
We have other directors other than /story/ such as /topics/ and /speical-reports/ and /press-releases/ etc..
The IT Director wants to redirect it based on the category/directory. So for example, move all of the pages in /story/ folder from the old domain into a similar /story/ folder on the new domain(http://www.mynewsite.com/story/)
So my question was, how would that affect our SEO compared to moving it page by page?
