I am making a new site so i will redirect the links from the old site to the new one. The problem is that the old site has some categories that the new won´t have.
I rather not say them, but here is an example: Lets suppose i have a site that sells all kind of cloth and shoes. Now in the new site i want to target only shoes and forget about the rest. Problem is that i got lots of link to the category "hat". Is it ok to 301 redirect does non relevant links to the main page of the new site? Or will that hurt the ranking for the keywords that i want for the new site?
thanks in advance
