    Hi!

    I have a question I can’t quite figure out the answer to.

    My site is here: http://UnwireMe.com

    I recently created a multi-site in order to split off content from the domain above into a subdomain I created, http://AntiguaGuatemala.UnwireMe.com.

    I managed to get everything working, but now I’m unsure of the next steps. I moved every post that was city-specific from the UnwireMe site to the Antigua subdomain. My question… well, two questions, are:

    Should I…

    a) Delete the now duplicate posts from the main site (UnwireMe).

    but before I do that,

    b) How do I handle the 301 redirects so I don’t lose ranking on search engines?

    I’ve read that one needs to modify the .htaccess file, but I’m not sure how that’s done when it’s not the entire site that moves, but about 90 or so URLs. If it something that’s done via the Genesis framework? Google Webmaster tools?

    Thank you for any light you can shed on this!
