  • 2.  From Wordpress.org, you can download wordpress and install it on your server.  You normally pay for server space.  You normally buy a domain name in this case.  Wordpress.com is like Blogger.com.  You can blog without paying any bucks.  You don’t have control that Wordpress.org can offer you normally.
  • 3.  Better Search Engine Optimization (SEO)  You don’t have to wait for Google to add some X feature to blogger  You are not restricted by Bloggers’ template tags which limit the way you can enhance your blogs’ user interface.  …
  • 4.  First and most important step is -  “BUY A CUSTOM DOMAIN NAME FOR YOUR BLOG”  Because…  It gives unique identity to your blog  It also makes your blog accessible across wider geographic reason

  • 7.  Go to “Settings >>Permalinks”
  • 8.  Go to “Tools >> Import”
  • 9.  We initially assumed that you are using custom domain name.  One domain can point to one blog. Currently its pointing to Blogger.com blog.  You need to make it point to your webhost where you want to install and run your Wordpress blog.
  • 10.  WordPress post link:  http://localhost/2009/01/national-conference-on- advanced-computer-systems-ncacs-09-hindustan-college- of-engineering.html  Blogger.com post link for same post:  http://www.example.com/2009/01/national-conference- on-advanced.html  Fixed permalink:  http://localhost/2009/01/national-conference-on- advanced.html
  • 11. <?php require_once('wp-load.php'); $res = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT post_id, meta_value FROM $wpdb- >postmeta WHERE meta_key = 'blogger_permalink'"); $wpdb->print_error(); foreach ($res as $row) { $slug = explode("/", $row->meta_value); $slug = explode(".", $slug[3]); $wpdb->query("UPDATE $wpdb- >posts SET post_name ='" . $slug[0] . "' WHERE ID = $row->post_id"); $wpdb->print_error(); } echo "DONE"; ?>
  • 12.  Go to “Tools >> Export”.
  • 13.  Configure custom domain on your webhosting account.  Upload & Install WordPress. Most webhost provide one-click interface for this.  Change permalink structure like we did in step 2. (Ref: Slide #8)
  • 14.  Go to “Tools >> Import” (again) but select Wordpress this time.  Upload XML file we saved in step 6 and just follow next few steps. (Ref: Slide #14)
  • 15.  Testing new wordpress’ permalinks & SEO  What to do with Blogger.com blog now?  Don’t Delete it!  Moving feed subscribers  Installing Blogger to Wordpress permalink redirection plugin - http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/blogger- to-wordpress-redirection/
  • 16.  Your images in old posts will remain on your Blogger account.  There is no tool which can “generate” Wordpress theme from a Bloggers template.
  • 17.  Ask a friend!  Need free support?  Use our forum - http://www.devilsworkshop.org/forum/  Ready to spend some bucks! ;-)  Ask rtCamp - http://rtcamp.com/
