I have 4 questions please...
1) Should the redirect take place at the new Wordpress site using a redirect plugin or should the redirect take place at the old HTML site?
2) Should I redirect every page on the old HTML site to the new Wordpress site - including those pages with no PR like the old Contact, Privacy, FTC Notice pages?
3) Should I delete the old HTML site after I'm done building the new site with Wordpress?
4) If I should NOT delete the old HTML site, will Google penalize me for the duplicate content that exists on the old HTML site?
Thank you very much.
P.S. Sorry to double post but I initially asked this in the website design category and then someone recommended that I ask my questions here in SEO instead.
