Allotting the Imported Authors to the Prevailing Authors

Now, it's time to allot the imported authors to the prevailing authors on your site. This is really practicable where the same authors prevail in both sites. Radically, you can open a fresh WordPress account for each author's blog posts.

You can also choose to attach files. Once chosen, all the images associated with the posts/pages you want to import will also be imported.


Your posts are now ready to be imported into your site. This can be ascertained simply by checking out the posts and/or pages.

Note that posts and pages will still have the same information as before and both will obviously have the same publishing dates and many more.

Will this work for content I have from a wordpress.com site to .org?

Thanks again.

Thanks for this training. I just moved some posts from one category from one of my blogs to one of my new blogs where that moved category is the main purpose for the new blog.

Question is, what is the best way to delete all of those post (and it is a good amount) from the old site? I will get dinged if Google and others read that the content is duplicate content, right?

I never thought about the amount of work now that I am going to have to do to make these post good for the new blog. All of those links that were moved now need to be changed and redirected also.

What ever you do, DO NOT DELETE as you will get 404 messages and a lot of bounce rates on Google Analytics. This is probably, not bad however BAD for people who go onto your site. If they are unable to access pages for whatever reason, you will find that your returning customers will NOT come back so you will loose out

TRANSFER . . . ALWAYS TRANSFER and NEVER DELETE. Have learnt this the hard way and from experience

Oh No!!! I did start to delete some from my other blog that I moved to my new blog. I will stop now for sure because I do not want to hurt my traffic on the blog that I exported from.

Will Google ding me if it shows I have repeated content out there on 2 sites? I am going to try and create new add-on content with the imported content but it will take a long time as I exported a whole category from the one site to the new site.

I may have bitten off more than I should have. Any created input anyone has is completely welcomed.

I am unsure about this as you are the owner of both blogs so its not really duplicate.

Perhaps using a link to click onto would be a better idea rather than duplicate content?

By the way, what Israel17 has shown you on moving is good. At least it has moved if you have followed it. There shouldn't be a need to delete as such

You are correct, Israel17 did a great job of posting how to get this done. I did follow that but it still leaves the content on the site that I exported it from. This is why I a concerned about duplicate content.

Have you updated your URL, showing that it is on its new website. Google will update this within 30 days or so.

When deleting a website, you never delete until well and truly after the 30 day period. Better after two months (60 days) to be on the safe site. Same concept as transfer/moving.

Double check your URL's

Thanks a lot, Petra! I also learned this the hard way experientially. One should never delete in order to avoid getting 404 messages and all of that and many bounce rates in Google Analytics. Thanks for your wonderful contribution, my friend! Really appreciate this! Keep rocking your blog. Keep rocking WA. Keep rocking the online world. You're indeed a rocking blogger. Thanks for your visit!

Sorry about that, friend! You shouldn't have deleted immediately though, but waited for at least 2-3 months first before deleting. Not to worry at all! Just make sure you stop deleting until after this period lest you lose most of your returning visitors. Thanks for your visit!

Thanks for this, my friend! Google recognizes you as the rightful owner of the content even for as long as the content remains on the site you exported from. Thanks for getting back! Wish you much success in the online world!

Thanks for getting back, TMcKeever! Just leave the content for a couple of months. Google recognizes that you're the rightful owner of the content you exported. Don't worry at all. Wish you much success in your online endeavors!

This is totally beyond my comprehension...

I may change my link in April when the site comes due to renew and then move my info over, but I know I'm going to need help as I have NO IDEA how this is done other than copy and paste.

Thanks for the reading, Jadatherapy! Much appreciated! I deliberately created this training tutorial for the community when someone asked a question on how he could move some of his posts from one site to another and I couldn't find one resource in the search. Thanks for stopping by!
