Penalized for redirecting traffic from Blogger to WordPress? (2 posts)

    Hi
    I’m trying to move my blog from Blogger to WordPress and I have copied my posts to WordPress a couple of days ago. I haven’t redirected the traffic, because I need someone to help with this part.
    Today I got an email from Blogger that my blog was erased because of suspicion of spam. I think it might be because of the mirroring of posts. I have asked in Google’s forum and been told, that
    A) It isn’t allowed to have mirroring posts
    B) It isn’t allowed to redirect traffic

    The last part surprised me, because there’s lot of advice on how to redirect traffic on the web and I haven’t seen any warnings that Google might erase your blog if you do this.

    What are your thoughts/advice? In case I get my Blogger-blog restored, should I not redirect traffic and lose my rank in the search engines?

    I have asked Google to have my blog restored but haven’t got an answer yet.

    PS: I have my own domain

    Today I got an email from Blogger that my blog was erased because of suspicion of spam.

    The sad part, as I have observed over the years, is that deleted blogs for suspected spam are very rarely (rather never) restored by Blogger.

    Redirection and migration (to and fro, both ways) are allowed by Blogger. You might have been caught possibly because you might have done it the wrong way.
