I currently run a 5 year old niche website which is doing pretty decent in terms of traffic. The URL of the website contains main the main theme of the website. (eg: www.how-can-widgets-help.com)
I also have another domain name (with a generic name eg - www.xyz.com)) which is being redirected to the website above. I have decided to implemented new social networking and collaboration features on www.xyz.com. Apart from many other things, one of the reasons is to grow the brand (xyz.com).
Now, can I duplicate all content from the old site and keep adding fresh content (have two different websites? Will SEs downgrade the new site because it doesn't have original content?
Should I redirect all traffic from the old site to the new domain? I'm concerned I'll lose a lot of revenue earning traffic if I do this. Also, I might lost some type-in traffic if I do this.
Kind of confused at this point.
