    I have a blog on Blogger since 2006 with about 300 post. The traffic used to be decent but due to family illness I was not as active for almost 2 years of blogging. Now I am back in the swing of things…..Do I MOVE the blog to my own site OR maintain 2 blogs? Of course SEO is a MAJOR concern! Opinion please! AND HOW do I transfer is that is the way to go? Thanks!

    Do not move the blogger blog, leave it as it as, make a announcement/final post that you will be posting on the new blog from now on.

    Fully focus on the latest blog you are creating i.e a fresh start. Unfortunately Google has become more unforgiving due to all the spam in recent years. To play safe keep the old things separate completely. This is just my opinion.

    Unfortunately, our support doesn’t cover moving from blogger to wordpress.
