If you were working for me, and brought forth this idea, I'd have to ask you to present your case with as much supporting detail as possible. Time-based hunches, such as splitting out content to two distinctly separate sites and waiting for Search to catch up, are still money-based hunches. Can your business afford to lose both?
If you'd like more specific input, based on your target service area and demographics, I'd be more than happy to weigh in. Just PM me the info.
Okay thank you very much. I'll try to Pm you later this evening, I really appreciate the offer.
