Transferring the blog content from one site to another site (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I bought a domain 'sureshjonna.in' last year from a hosting provider and mapped that to jonnasuresh.wordPress.com. Now I bought one more domain sureshjonna.co.in from the same hosting provider along with a hosting plan.

    My question is:
    I want to transfer every content from 'jonnasuresh.wordPress.com/sureshjonna.in' to 'sureshjonna.co.in'. So there will be same content on both the sites i.e sureshjonna.in and sureshjonna.co.in. If I do that will there be any problem because of the duplicate content?

    If you have the same content available in several sites, search engines may regard this as Duplicated, and therefore will hurt any of your sites' ranking in SEO, if that matters.

    Other than that there is no harm, except confusion among readers as to which is the primary site.

    Personally in that situation I would, say, select sureshjonna.in as the major site and redirect the other domains to that site on my host's panel ( if they offer this ) --- in the case of the ~~~.wordpress.com it may be possible to redirect it from WordPress.com's admin panel for all I know --- or use 301 redirects in .htaccess.

    It is fine to have any number of domains pointing to the same site; but not ideal to maintain the same site mirrored among many domains.
    ( Although no-one can stop you. )

    No particular point either.
