We have have recently split from our parent company and are now an independent company with a brand new website.
The parent company has a very authorative site and (being new) we have none. We are getting our pages on the parent company site redirected to our new website. Product pages are getting a direct 301, but some of the higher level pages will have some explanatory text and then a link to click to the new website.
The parent wants to have all our existing high-level menu items redirected to a single page that explains that we are now independent and includes a selection of links to our new (high-level) pages. (basically 20 pages -> 1 page -> 20 links).
We wanted each high level page to have an individual description of the de-merger, and a link directly to the corresponding page on our site (1 page -> 1 link).
Does anyone know which of these methods would give us the best link juice from the parent company site?
Hope that is clear.
