On the site I am helping out (local, one person service business), they are short on man hours and need things to turn around pronto.
The fastest way I've found or heard of is to dump [noindex] the pages on the main domain then move the info the EMDs/PMDs and build them instead -- No redirects; just take the info and move it to something that matches the query better then rank that domain [or those domains] rather than whatever domain the info is on but not ranking currently.
Note: I would include any/all products on any other EMD/PMD used rather than trying to drive traffic to the main domain so the EMD/PMD are not doorway pages -- In-other-words: Don't try to force anyone to visit the main domain to purchase anything they searched for. Give them what they're looking for as soon as they land on an EMD/PMD instead.
I'm a great believer that established knowledge can actually limit thinking.
+1 -- Very well said and a great point!
