Summary of this tutorial:
Moving from blogger to WordPress is a straight-forward process, but if you make a mistake, then it can have a negative impact on your SEO.
That’s why in our blogger to WordPress migration tutorial, we are going to show you every thing step by step with no steps skipped.
Step 0: Sign up with a WordPress hosting company and setup WordPress. We recommend Bluehost, but you can use any one of the top WordPress hosting providers listed here because they’ll all give you a free domain:
Step 1: Export your blogger blog files from your Blogger dashboard, so we can easily move all your blog content to WordPress.
Step 2. Import Blogger to WordPress by using the built-in Blogger importer in WordPress.
Step 3: Setup Pretty Permalinks – you want to setup permalinks to keep your SEO rankings intact when you are switching from blogger to WordPress.
Step 4. Setup redirection – this redirects your old blogger users to your new WordPress site ensuring that your pageviews stay high.
Step 5. Redirect blogger feeds to WordPress – when you do this, all your subscribers will continue to get the new content without having to resubscribe.
Step 6. Import images from Blogger to WordPress – sometimes the importer may fail, so you would need to use this external plugin to fix that problem.
