Setting up WordPress can be a scary process if you haven’t done it before, especially with all the horror stories around. Not only this, but the extra complications of moving from one blogging platform to another can cause serious problems with your site’s SEO and security (if not done correctly).
Our custom built migration system means we can transfer all of your content. Unlike other migration services/tools, your content will keep all features such as rewardStyle, Shopstyle and Google Analytics. Such features are normally stripped out when importing to WordPress.

- Transfer from Blogger/Blogspot.
- Installation of WordPress.org platform.
- FREE WordPress theme from our range!
- Migration of all content (posts, pages, comments, links, subscribers, images, widgets).
- All posts will retain their url/link structure (keeping any SEO).

- Copy all rewardStyle/Shopstyle features.

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes that’s no problem. We can connect your current domain to your new WordPress site. It is also possible to change to a new domain if you wanted to use a different one for the new site.
You can use any domain you like on the new site, from any domain provider. We can connect this to the WordPress hosting you select on SiteGround.
We aim to complete a migration within 3 days. During this time you can continue to use your blogger blog as normal. There will be no downtime. We can also aim to launch the new site on a specific date if you would prefer.
Yes, you can continue to edit blog posts and any content on Blogger during the migration.
We’ve transferred blogs of all shapes and sizes, so you will be in safe hands. Whether you have 5 posts or 5000 posts, the process remains the same and you won’t lose any content.
Normally, such code is stripped out when your content is imported to WordPress. Our custom built import process ensures that all rewardStyle and Shopstyle widgets will be kept in your posts. You won’t lose any “Shop the post” features or embedded links.
No, we will setup the new site in the background so that it won’t effect your live blog. This means that there will will be no downtime. Your blog will seamlessly transition from Blogger to WordPress.
Yes you can continue to use Blogger as normal whilst we migrate your site.
We will migrate all of your drafts and scheduled posts to the new site. They will be in your new WordPress dashboard ready and waiting for you when you log in.
Your post content will mostly retain its formatting. WordPress will also clean up any HTML errors which are present in the post/page content caused by bugs in the Blogger post editor (which are surprisingly common). This will greatly improve your SEO as Google will be able to read the content much more easily.
You can select any plan you like from this page. The ‘StartUp’ plan is suitable for most blogs. However if your site receives more traffic then you may wish to go for the ‘GrowBig’ or ‘GoGeek’ plan. It’s worth noting that you can also upgrade/downgrade at any time in future too. So it might be worth going for ‘GrowBig’ first since you will receive a 60% discount for it. You can then upgrade/downgrade later if you want to.
Yes you can use Adsense or any other advertising platform on WordPress. If you already have an Adsense account on Blogger, we will transfer your ads to the new site too.
Yep! You’ll have full control of your site so you can install any widgets/plugins you want to use.
Blogger includes the date in your post links automatically. However if you would prefer to remove the dates from the links then we can set this up during the migration. Just let us know after purchasing and we’ll be happy to arrange it.
Moving to WordPress is likely to improve your SEO due to a better blog post content structure and system behind the scenes. We will also install and configure the Yoast SEO plugin, so that you can really take your SEO to the next level. All of your post links will remain the same for Google/Bing etc to index as normal.
Nope! You will keep all the comments on your posts. This is the case even if your comments are hosted on Disqus or Google Plus too. We have developed our own custom system to ensure no comments are lost.
No, we will create an account for you during the setup process. This will then be sent to you as soon as the migration is complete. You are then welcome to change your password if you wish.
