Authoring & Writing Content

I have 2 sites with a very similar topic and want to shut 1 down. Can I use the content from the site I'm shutting down on the other site? All content is Google indexed. Thanks

I would keep the old one open for a while, like another year, with a 301 redirect to the same article on the new site. That tells Google you own both of them and that it therefore is okay to have the article appear on a second site. Otherwise Google may think it is duplicate content and hit you with a duplicate content penalty.

Thanks Jeannine - I see there is a training for that so I should be able to do it no problem.

I think you would be ok with that. Just to be safe you could add more to it and rewrite parts to add more uniqueness, but as your closing one site it really shouldn’t be a problem.

Good idea to do a bit of revision. Thank you for your input.

I am trying to connect to my site using Filezilla FTP, I am getting a notice saying that the server does not support FTP over TLS and that all my files will go out exposed to t

Since you are putting your files on a web server anyways, encryption and security doesn't really matter. Since someone will see them on the web anyways, if that makes sense.

If you were transferring confidential files, then I would worry at that point.

Thank you Don for the shot of common sense.
