Im hoping somebody can provide some clarification on the following.
Right now I have one site that I will longer be using because of potential trademark violation down the road. Live and learn on that lesson. I have since bought a new domain and wish to transfer everything from the old site to the new site. Right now I have the new site pointed towards my root directory so it looks exactly the same as the older site. The older site has a ranking of 700K or so, while the new site is at 6 million.
Is it a better idea to simply create a new database for the new site and copy my old database containing the template, information, etc. I wish to keep for ranking purposes or is there a better way to do things?
I alluded to my surprise of how quickly the older site increased rank and Id like to do the same thing with my new site using the same Newsline Template. Im thinking about simply creating a folder in my root directory and transfering my original joomla installation, template, etc. to that folder and then using that directory as the root directory for my new site, but Id like to make sure there isnt a more efficient way to do things.
