I could not come up with a good title for my question.
I'm a noob when it comes to all this SEO and redirection stuff so beat with me.
My forum has been around since 2003. It has always had a main page outside of the forum; that is what the top level domain points to. My forum is in the folder /forum
Dubs in the Buff
Now my main page doesn't really serve any purpose so I was thinking of doing away with it and just redirecting straight to the forum.
Will this kill or hurt any of my results in SE's or anything like that? I have lots of pages indexed in Google.
Also what is the best way to redirect without affecting anything?
Would it be more worthwhile to set up portal page like vbseo as my main page? This would be helpful for ranking for certain keywords I would imagine.
Thanks for any help!!
