Last Updated March 8th, 2018

If you are one of those who are thinking of migrating, redirecting or moving your Blogger blog to self-domain WordPress, you better read this important post.

I know there are many tutorials on the Internet  telling you how easy to redirect or migrate your Blogger blog to WordPress, without losing its PageRank, traffic and whatnot.

Some even advertised on the Internet; providing professional service to help you to migrate or move your Blogger blog to WordPress for a fee.

You may not only lose your money, but your blog to Google search as well.

The worst of all is...

Your Blogger blog got banned by Google for good.

In short, you lose your blog.

If you don't believe me, go over to Blogger Help Forum and find out for yourself. 

It is better to know the risk involved if you want to redirect or migrate your Blogger blog to self-hosted site.

If you do not mind getting your blog deleted by Google, then go ahead.

Recently I read from one of those Google-banned victims, warning others about the danger of using cloaking, while redirecting Blogger or Blogger blog to WordPress.

According to him, the key problem was he was trying to retain his Blogger traffic after redirecting his blog to WordPress, by using the popular Redirect Blogger To WordPress plugin.

That was the main culprit which got his site banned from Google search engine.

There's more.

There is this guy who followed the popular tutorial "How to Switch from Blogger to WordPress without Losing Google Rankings" from Syed Balkhi's site, WPBeginner.

He not only lost his Google rankings, but the whole blog as well!

To be able to read the image above, just click on it.

You can read the whole episode in this post.

If you are worried about losing your Blogger blog when you migrating it to a non Blogger domain, then follow its rules and regulations.
