Will redirecting an old site affect my siloing?
I made a casino website a half a year ago. I was building it for SEO and was focused on many broad terms like 'free online casino', 'online casino', 'online casino bonus' etc. Later I found out how over-ambitious I was considering these terms are highly competitive and tough to get 1st page rankings for.
Now there's still a lot of content there, say 20 articles, and I'd like to 'transfer', 'cut and paste' them to my newer website, which is soley based on the sub keyword 'free online casino'. Also, I'd like to know if I redirect the website, will the links also be applied to the newer website?
Now I'd like to keep the new website silo'ed to the keyword 'free online casino', so I'm thinking of re-writing/wording the articles that are less relevant to the new topic. If I remove the non-relevant articles, will the SE's then 'merge' the two sites and will this be a merger with relevant content?
Basically I don't want to hurt the silo'ing I've been doing for the newer site but I don't want the content, and especially inbound links from the other website not let gone to waste.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
