I had designed a Joomla website some two years ago. It is bringing reasonable amount of traffic. But now I am realizing the domain may not have been a perfect choice for this kind of content. I have another domain which is far easier to remember and easier to pronounce as well.
My old Joomla website is not that bad design-wise. However, I am planning to move most of its content to the new WordPress domain while keeping almost 10% of the content on the old Joomla domain. My plan is to show one website on both the domains. The content of one of the menu link will be on the old domain while the remaining will go to the new one.
If I move the remaining 10% of the content to the new WordPress website, that might cause design related issues. I am not yet ready to handle that stuff.
So, my question is double-sword.
Thank you in advance for your help.
My plan is to show one website on both the domains.
This sounds like a bad idea.
Use redirects from the old domain to the new domain.
Should I split the content into two different domains
You will confuse people.
Set a redirect from the old URL to the new URL.
Should I divide the content into two different technologies
What software you use to present your content is not important for SEO.
It will be a hassle to keep both systems updated, so why don't you move everything to the new URL?
If you need a special design for the last 10% of the content, create (page) templates.
Thank you for guiding me on this important issue. Now I am clear what I need to do.
Thanks and regards
