I've read that folks have run into major problems dropping out of SEs when transitioning from an old domain to a new one, even if they implement a 301 redirect.
My question is, has anyone run into a problem in this scenario...
I ask because a client had their ecommerce site built a LONG time ago and every page of their site is inside this directory when they don't really have to be.
We'd like to shorten these URLs and put 301s in place to retain any ranking.
Seems relatively safe, but wanted to check with the community to see if they thought the same thing and discovered otherwise.
