Migrate from blogger to wordpress


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.


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


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


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


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.


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…


means better CPC or better CTR


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.


Here is my blog on one of Namecheap hosting plan, which I wrote exclusively for those who are migrating from Blogger to Wordpress… & this is the hosting plan which I choose for my personal use also.


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


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


Is there anything specific I can help with?


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


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


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.

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


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


@MyilRaj @Ankur

These blogger sites have nice alexa rank.


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.
