We’ll show you how to convert from Blogger to WordPress without losing your Search engine rankings in this article.
Blogger is a popular and simple content management system. When a person decides to establish a blog, Blogger, among other free blog services, is likely to be the first pick. That choice is neither incorrect nor unusual. The platform is owned and operated by Google, it only takes a few clicks to set up the essentials, and it is absolutely free. Although this course will teach you how to convert everything to self-hosted WordPress, which we prefer, don’t feel terrible if you start with Blogger.
In this tutorial, we’ll teach you how to migrate from Blogger to WordPress (Godaddy Domain, Blogger Site, Hostinger Hosting Server). The simple and easy way, first of all, your blogger posts published in below 100 posts to migrate to WordPress, But, If you published in 100 – 500+ posts migrate to WordPress sum clicks don’t worry this article for you in this article to show the 500+ posts migrate to WordPress free.
Let’s start the transfer
How to move your 500+ blog posts from Blogger to WordPress
1. Choose the best WordPress hosting
Because you are transitioning to self-hosted WordPress, the first step is to locate a WordPress hosting company that will take care of your files. You must install WordPress on that host, and you must have faith in the firm. You’re starting a real blog now, so don’t take it for granted.
WordPress hosting services are offered by hundreds of hosting companies. Also, there are hundreds (if not thousands) of websites that compare them. But, before you start reading all the reviews on Search engines such as google of your choice, we should caution you that many sites and reviews are paid for. As just a result, you will wind up reading fake reviews and comments about a hosting business that pays to be ranked at the top.
My personal suggestion is Hostinger Hosting is best for Beginners, Hostinger is the greatest pricing on Premium shared hosting at $2.59 per month, which includes 100 GB SSD storage, a free domain, free SSL, a free email, and weakly backup, and much more.
If you choose a Hostinger is the greatest pricing on Bussiness shared hosting at $3.99 per month, which includes 200 GB SSD storage, a free domain, free SSL, a free email, and daily backup and, much more.
If you buying a Godaddy, Bluehost, Siteground, etc… Hosting the same process to Migrate, I use Hostinger Hosting.
