I had a site that sold widgets and ranked number 2 in Google for it's search term. Those widgets have now been moved to a new site that sells lots of other things including the widgets.
I have redirected 301 all of the old sites pages (except the homepage) to their corresponding inner pages on the new site.
My question is should i redirect the homepage of the old site to the homepage of the new site. As I said the new site sells lots of other products including the widgets.
Would it have any negative impact on google listings for the new site? I don't want any problems at all with the new site. What would be the most transparent way to do it.
Any advice would be gratefully received.
