I'm trying to tell Google that I'm merging two sites into one, with the following URLs:
- site1.com to newsite.com/1
- site2.com to newsite.com/2
I already set 301s to the relevant pages of newsite.com from site1.com and site2.com.
Problem: Google Search Console's change of address tool only sees newsite.com as a proper destination, I cannot properly set my redirections there. I thought about the following workaround:
- Create the subdomain 1.newsite.com and redirect to newsite.com/1
- register 1.newsite.com in Google Search Console and register change of address from site1.com to newsite.com/1
Is this risky? Is there an alternative? Thank you!
