I have two websites, one where I promote WA and my Niche site. There's a post I've written on my WA site that I want to take and move to my Niche site.

Is this possible to do without causing a duplicate content slap from Google? I do plan to delete the post from my WA site. Is there a specific order I'd have to do it in? Should I wait a few days between deleting and posting on the Niche site?

Thanks in advance!

Great question and great answers! Personally, I like the paraphrasing approach so that you can keep both posts but the technical approach is good to know to switch the post to another site. Great stuff!

I think I'll do the paraphrasing and see how it ranks!

Move it to your other site. Then go to Google Webmaster Tool and

Remove URL and CACHE

Do same in Bing.

Also, do a 301 redirect from your old site to the new site.

Yes. For re-direct, use the plugin "Simple 301 Redirects"....it's simple
Important is to remove URL from old website in Google and Bing

Just paraphrase the content here and there after you copy it to your niche site. No more duplication.

Is it really that easy to do? I'm not sure I want to risk that! :-D

Google's algorithm may seem smart, but not that smart. Programs can only compare string comparisons (i.e., text to text) and check if they're identical, As long as your text is not identical verbatim, Google can't really tell. The more paraphrases you make (e,g, changing an adjective here and there), the less likely Google can tell. Even altering the order of words or sentences would the trick as well.

there is a lot in the post that I have to change, so it should go over pretty well. I will still delete it off the other site, I'm considering even closing that one up since I want to focus 100% of my energy on my niche site
