There are many Blogging Platforms to use online and the most popular ones are Blogger.com and WordPress.org – but the one I highly recommend you to use would be WordPress.

There are many reasons why WordPress is at the top of the blogging platforms online and as you gain more experience blogging online, you will learn why WP is the blogging platform to use if you want to have a lot more control over your blog site.

What you probably want to take care of the most would be your blogspot.com blog’s URLs, search engine traffic, Google Pagerank & RSS Subscribers, when you are switching from one blogging platform to another one.

When you switch from blogger.com to wordpress.org – you do not want to lose anything at all.

You want to keep as much as possible, especially when there is a lot of content and a lot of work put into the blog.

In this post you will learn how to switch from blogger to wordpress in simple steps and maintain most of what you have already accomplished with your blogspot blog.

This tutorial to will show you how to switch from YOURDOMAIN.blogspot.com Website to a Self-Hosted WordPress Website.

This is how to switch from Blogger to WordPress in simple steps

1 – Go to your WP Dashboard>>Tools>>Import & click on Blogger.

4 – Click on ‘Import’ for the BlogSpot.com Blog Site you want to import content from. Follow the instructions to finish the entire process.


All of your .blogspot.com blog posts are now on your brand new WordPress Blog. (make sure they are)

The next thing you want to do now is to redirect every visitor that comes to your old .blogspot.com blog posts to your brand new WP blog.

Here is how to switch from Blogger to WordPress without losing traffic!

1 – Get Redirection Script Code Here – Fill out the simple form with your information & click on ‘Generate New Code’.


2 – Select the entire Script Code – then right click & ‘Copy’.


3 – Go to your .blogspot.com blog dashboard then go to Templates – scroll all the way down & click on ‘Revert to classic template’.


4 – Scroll down to ‘Edit Template HTML’ – select the entire code that is in it & then right-click & ‘Paste’ the new script code.

Now every visitor coming to your .blogspot.com blog site is going to be redirected to your new wordpress blog.

Once all of the above is done, go to your blogspot blog site and click on a post – see if it redirects to your new WP Blog.

Once last thing you should do here, would be to redirect your RSS Subscribers to your new RSS Feed from your new WordPress Blog.

Here is what you need to do:

1 – Go to your .blogspot.com blog dashboard – go to ‘Settings’ – look for ‘Post Feed Redirect URL’ & then enter your new RSS Feed URL.

Now, every time someone subscribes to your RSS Feed through your .blogspot.com blog – they will be subscribing to your new WP Blog’s RSS Feed.

You should be ready to go!!

You are now officially a WordPress person and it is time to put in the work with your brand new WP Blog Site!

I’d like to congratulate you for making the wise switch here. Don’t get me wrong, I still like Blogger.com, but I would only use it for very, very personal blogs that only family & friends would know about.

The WordPress Blogging Platform gives you a lot more control over your entire blog and thanks to the plugins and the simplicity, it is the perfect platform to get started blogging online to make some extra money.

This is how to switch from blogger to wordpress without losing anything!! …enjoy! 😉
