I used to run two sites selling the same products but with different shopping carts. Site A has about 50 pages and site B had about 2,500 pages indexed due to the way the cart worked.
I now want to point any traffic going to Site B to Site A as we are getting rid of that platform.
I had been told that doing a 301 for every page back to my root (or index.php) could have negative consequences SEO wise but I also don't want to go through and do individual redirects for all 2,500 links.
I'm mostly concerned about capturing traffic from people with saved links and/or emails. Is there a better way to do this?
Hope that makes sense!
