Just checking if Google will still deem it as duplicate content

Hey Angela,

Seeing as Kyle has already helped you by answering your question, I only have a tidbit of info to share with you.

You do not need to extract your article from one website to another. There's an easier way to move it along with any comments you've had on that article.

Here's a tutorial to help you move a post or page form one website to another: Hope you find this helpful.

Thank you. That will be very helpful. :)

Kyle has you covered here :) Kindly let us know if you need additional assistance.

If the other website is indexed, then yes it will be deemed as duplicate content (content copied from your other site).

Google doesn't know ownership, but if you take the content offline, and it is deindexed on the other site, then this can be fine and you will not be punished for this.

Thanks Kyle. Would deleting it from the other site automatically deindex it on that site, the site is indexed at the moment I believe? I'm just not sure how to do this if not.

Can I post the exact same article from one website if I delete it from another website?

I'm feeling like my market audience and the topics I want to write about has a wider range now. If you did, has it affected your site's performance?
Thanks in advance,

You can.

Thank you. I see what you mean.

Hey Ange,

Way back at the start, I had 2 different websites that I soon realized were actually categories, so I merge them into a brand new domain name.

Yes, I've noticed a lot less work creating content... and the new site gained more viewers due to the two being merged to become simply different categories.

Hope you find this helpful.

Thank you. Did you create a whole new URL for the 2 of them? How does that work? Would you still somehow keep the 2 URLs of the websites and continue paying for them, or transfer content to a new website and separate the content under categories? I wouldn't have the first clue how to merge them.

LOL, I've told this story so many times now, I should create a post about it. ;-)

I had two sites merged into a brand new domain name.

BOTH sites, I created a backup file for and then cleaned the databases up. This way, all clutter would NOT be transferred to the newly registered domain.

The first domain was super easy to move the content from the old to the new.

I simply created a new backup file (after the database cleaning) from the first one I was taking the content from, and use it to "restore" the brand new domain that was empty of content.

[It's called restoration or importing]
I use the following plugin: back then as there wasn't the same amount of content on each site that there is now on the new domain.

[since then, I've change my backup plugin to All-in-One WP Migration, due to file size]

The second one... well... I took the content from the site that I wanted to move the content from, a bit differently.

I exported only the content so to keep all of the comments, images and attached documents. I also created a backup file of the 2nd site, so that worse come to worse, I'd have a means of retrieving any lost content.

Once I was 100% certain that ALL of the content from BOTH sites were successfully transferred to the new site... I deleted the two old domains of content, and setup redirects from both of them, to be redirected to the newly registered domain that now contained all of the content.

Once the old domain registrations came due, I let them go by unchecking the option to auto-renew.

I mean, what was the point of keeping domain names I no longer had a use for.

AND, it turned out that the newly registered domain was an old domain name that someone had used in years past and no longer wanted it anymore. The domain name received authority for the years it was previously registered for.

BONUS! Right?

As for the categories... each of the old sites had a different category label for the content, and those remained unchanged once merged into the new site.

I had only had BOTH of the old domains for a matter of months when I realized that I had "bit off more than I could chew", creating TWO sites... and they really were more like categories for ONE topic... thus the decision to merge them.

Hope you find this helps you.



Thank you. It's a huge help. Especially how you've laid out the process so well. I really appreciate the effort you have gone to. :)

Hi,
I haven’t but then I’m only coming up to my 2nd year here. I would imagine if you have had the same domain since you joined in 2013, it would have an impact.
Hopefully those who have had a website for as long will be able to assist you further.
I would recommend backing up content if you do decide to move it and have a redirect in place so that visits get directed to your new domain.

Thank you. I've been here since 2013 but didn't fully get involved straight away. I also don't have a great deal of traffic at the moment. It's more about whether a name change that doesn't represent the actual URL will be a problem.
