Migrate from blogger to wordpress


#81

I migrated from blogger to wordpress and change URL structure of post by removing date from them using yoast redirect tool.
Only little increase in traffic after all these changes


#82

I think you did not get increase because you changed the url.


#83

Is there anything specific I can help with?


#84

Migrating from Blogger to WordPress will surely contribute to the traffic loss. Also, it will take time to recover.


#85

Will it loss if I have same permalink as on blogger.


#86

When you migrate to WordPress, I would recommend looking at few things carefully

  • Ensure A to A permalink structure.
  • Audit 404 links
  • Maintain similar internal link for the navigation
  • Ensure about proper heading structure.
  • Audit your new site at https://search.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool
  • Make sure all images are present, image traffic may loose due to permalink change.
  • Optimize for speed and mobile view, you can test at https://web.dev/measure
  • Test your complete site with Crawling Software like Screaming Frog to find possible issues and fix it.

thanks @GulshanKumar
Does anyone know the blogger blog having good traffic?
I mean alexa rank below 10,000.
As I am unable to find.


#88

Even I am too searching the answer for the same question.

@MyilRaj @Ankur



These blogger sites have nice alexa rank.


#90

Indeed but they can do better if they move to WordPress.


#91

I spoke with Hackernews admin through email regarding blogger and WP. He said that he wants to stick with blogger to inspire others.


#92

As I saw alexa rank of these blogs, studyrankers.com has 13,976 rank with just 45 links.
How is it possible?
I think alexa is unable to determine exact traffic of websites.


#93

Alexa won’t show all backlinks. So, use Ahrefs.


#94

Seo dosen’t depends on what cms you are using. Google don’t care how your server renders stuffs, all it matters is the generated HTML content. I believe that both are same in terms of seo. but with WordPress you will get more features.


#95

I only want to migrate because yoast seo plugin has option to seo for synonyms.
That can help to improve my rankings and traffic.


#96

This is exactly what I think, search engine has nothing to do with cms. Only good thing about WordPress is that it have tons of plugin, nothing more.


#97

Then, is it beneficial to migrate to wordpress from blogger.


#98

@Ankur You can migrate to WP. Make sure to follow the steps given by Gulshan


#99

WOW. The site is clean AF. Its the cleanest and the most well designed blogger based website I have ever seen. :100:

Tons of plugins and better solutions would help him grow his business/blogging. A open source WordPress is far far better than Blogger.
