I have a new MMO website where the domain name is not hyphenated like my old MMO website. Should I transfer my old articles and create new ones to go with them or should I just leave them where they are? Then create brand new articles for the new MMO website?

Opinions please... to help guide me in the right direction...

Hi

I'd check status of my old site, and stats and make a decision. If I can salvage some of the content and still relevant or update then I would or revive it and link to it from the newer site.

However it is better to focus on the ONE site, that's totally up to you what you decide.

Please be aware the Affiliate Bootcamp (make money online niche) as the latter is a lot harder and more competitive, you would need to write 300 to 400 articles before you are able scratch the surface,

You'd also need to do the whole Bootcamp in its entirety before you can commence with your site.

Recommendation is to focus on ONE niche at a time, even Kyle himself would recommend the same.

I also suggest you backup your sites, you can use the AIO WP Migration or Updraft plugins. UpdraftPlus is a premium and highly recommended.

Thanks for the advice... I will definitely weigh my option on this.

What I am considering is creating a new site... leave my old one alone and take a stab at the new one.

The last thing I want to do is try to do two... holy cow. The one is tough enough with my limited time. That's why I will let the hyphenated website sit... no more content for that one.

I moved my site to as new domain and left the old one running with a redirect for a bit of time. The difference is, I had very few articles on mine, Bob! You have excellent answers already. Site support handled my move.

Thanks, Jeff. I was wondering if Site Support would be able to help with this. Now I know, you were helpful with this response.

If you are leaving the old website running, then create new articles for your new website. Reference some of the old articles with external links to your old website.

If you are taking the old website down, then - yes move them.

I haven't decided yet as to whether or not I want to keep them. I may leave the old site up and running without adding anything new. I like your idea of putting external links to my new site. I didn't think of that one.

Thanks, I really appreciate this.

Hey Bob,

That is your decision to make. However, if the content is still very relevant, why not.

Here's a tutorial to show you how you can export your posts with comments and import them to your new domain without losing the comments: Hope you find this helpful.

Thank you a whole bunch. I haven't decided yet. I am leaning towards leaving the old site up and running. If I do, I may follow Alexander's advice. But, if I don't I will definitely use this tutorial you made. It is awesome!!

Thanks again,
Bob

Hey Bob,

The reason I was able to create that training is that I had 2 separate sites that I realized should have the content in ONE site and have two categories instead, due to the topics.

So... i registered a different domain name, and used a copy of my backup file of ONE of the sites to restore the content to NEW domain and then I had to go hunting down instructions as to getting the other site's content moved over too.

The two sites I removed the content from were then redirected to the NEW site (too make Google happy). And, I went back to where I had registered those two domains from and made sure to UNCHECK the auto-renew registrations.

Once those site registrations timed out... well... Google had all of my content re-pointed to the new domain, so it didn't matter.
