Migrate from blogger to wordpress


#70

I am planning to migrate my blog on IP address without adding domain.
and I’ll add domain from blogger to wordpress when everything will be done perfectly.
Is it ok or not.


#72

after migration
should I delete blogger blog or I should deindex that.
because that will be a blogspot blog.


#73

You should deindex the blogspot blog. You never know when you want to have a look at your old infrastructure :slight_smile:


#75

yes, I can move back if everything will not be favourable on wordpress.
because no traffic increase is only issue with blogger.


#76

Both are platforms for Bloggers. I don’t believe that migrating from one to one will increase traffic. I admit that WP has many features over blogger.


#77

More than increased traffic I got better paid after moving to wordpress and also provided independence to incorporate lots of features which blogger restricts you… close your eyes and go for it…


#78

means better CPC or better CTR


#79

I am moving because I read a lot on internet and find that wordpress is more seo friendly.
and i assume that more seo friendly meas i’ll get an increase in traffic.
Because my blog has a lot of content.

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.

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

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