The old site has awesome potential that should not be wasted.

I'm a web developer (since 94) and I do search engine optimization and online marketing on a daily basis. He would absolutely want to keep the old site up util ready to migrate it. It has over 10k links and HUGE authority. His new site would hopefully get that kind of authority soon, but done intelligently he could have awesome ranking potential.

If anyone cares to know more I can explain in depth, but it's a bit complicated. Also, if any RP people read here absolutely contact me and I'll volunteer whatever time he needs. It is critical he gets someone on his staff that understands these sort of things.
