I can comment on part of this based on what I was recently told by an SEO company. Let's assume you've got a bunch of SEO "goodness" (recognition, Google search placement, etc.) going for you on site1.com. If you a permanent redirect (301) to site2.com, all that SEO goodness will transfer straight across to the new site. You may take this with whatever grain of salt you like, considering it comes from an SEO company and I consider SEO companies almost uniformly liars and ripoff artists who generally have no earthly idea what they're talking about. In this case, what they're saying makes sense to me, and I suspect it's true. Paul -- Paul M.
