  • Choose Where You Are Hosting your Site!

Choosing a your web host should be one of your first considerations when trying to migrate your website.

There are two main things you need to look for when choosing a host: server speed and customer service.

Hosts with slow servers or poor customer service can damage your site’s performance and make it nearly impossible for you to get help when problems arise.

In general, I recommend because they have excellent customer service, fast servers, and reasonable prices.


  • Install Your Chosen Theme And Plugins!


There are a lot of free, quality themes and plugins available for WordPress that you can install from your dashboard.

We recommend installing WordPress SEO by Yoast for SEO optimization, and Mailchimp for WP if you are going to be using a mailing list.

Other popular plugins include Jetpack, All in One SEO Pack, Contact Form 7 and SumoMe.

Take some time looking through what is available, once installed, every plugin will have its own settings page that allows you to customize it.

After you have finished setting up your WordPress site and have installed all the necessary plugins, the next thing is to import all your post on blogger to WordPress.

Doing this might be hard but we are going to show some steps on how to import your post from blogger to WordPress.


  1.  Log into your blogger account, then navigate to your settings tab. Click on Import/Export, and then hit Download Export File:
  2. Go back to your wordpress installation. Click on Tools > Import > WordPress:
  3. Select where you want to download your .xml file from (i.e., click on select file location):
  4.  Click on Upload file and import:
  5. Enter in your database information. You can find it by clicking on Settings > General in your dashboard:
  6. Click on Submit Query and wait for all of your posts to upload.

  11. On a separate note, if you haven’t already installed Jetpack , I highly recommend doing so now.


  • Deactivate Your Old Blogger Blog!

After importing all your post from blogger to WordPress,in your blogger dashboard, go to Settings.

Click on Deactivate my old site. You will then receive a notification informing you that your site has been deactivated.

Simply click on Done and wait while Googlebot crawls through your pages one last time.

Once done, you will be redirected back to your blogger dashboard with instructions on how to create a new website using WordPress.

If successful, you will now have two URLs pointing at your domain name: one for blogger and one for wordpress.


  •  Write A New Content!

Once you have got your outline done, it is time to actually write your content. There are lots of different styles for approaching content creation, but we have some simple guidelines to adhere to.

Read through your outline and expand on each section by writing down key points.

Keep adding onto these sections until they are at least 1000 words each or more 3.

Edit, edit, edit – focus on making it interesting and using strong vocabulary.

Proofread your post once more before publishing! The last step is important as it can be easy to miss mistakes in your own work.

This is where reading out loud comes in handy  if you stumble over a word or sentence, then there is probably something wrong with it.

Also keep an eye out for missing commas or other punctuation marks that may change how people interpret what you are saying.


  •  Do Some keyword Research On The New Platform

The most important thing is to do keyword research.

When you migrate from blogger to WordPress, you want your posts and pages come up when people search for those terms on Google and other search engines.

This will help drive traffic back to your site.

The keywords that get you there are called long tail keywords (keywords with three or more words).

They have less competition because they are not  common and less competitive that means it is easier for you to rank for them.



  •  Test your site in Google Chrome’s PageSpeed Section!

In Google Chrome, select Developer from your browser’s main menu. After that, click on Tools, then select PageSpeed Insights.

PageSpeed is a tool that helps analyze web pages and see if they are mobile-friendly.

In order for your website to be deemed mobile-friendly by Google, it needs to have a score of 85 or higher and meet Google’s Web Fundamentals criteria.


  • Use GTMetrix To Check Load Speed Scores!

In order to load quickly and keep your visitors happy, your site needs to load quickly.

Use  GTMetrix to check you page-load speed scores.

By paying close attention to these scores, you will be able to focus on improving them while keeping your new website running fast.


  • Create A Sitemap

This step is optional but highly recommended as it helps search engines better index your content.

A sitemap is a document that lists all of your webpages along with their URLs, and helps search engines find all of your content more easily.
