    I have transferred all the contents of the old blog to my new domain and made all the posts on my old blog as private.
    How do I direct the links from the old blog to the new domain. The search engines still show my old blog, but visitors can't get to it since the posts are hidden. So its shows up an error page!!!!

    Can you help??

    At the top of your old .htaccess file, add the following:

    Redirect permanent / http://newdomain.com

    This will send a 301 status code to clients including search engines, to tell them they need to update their links.
