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.
