We previously hosted some video content in a forum-based section. Due to a business case we created a new section for similar content based around blogs.
The majority of our search engine traffic is going to the older posts, which we'd like to remove in favour of the new section. I'm wondering if anybody has experience of similar, I have 2 questions related to this:
If you've ever removed content that appears first on a Google search, does the 2nd content listed then move to the top?
Is there a way (without initialization scrips) to redirect from each of these posts to the newer/different versions?
