Domain Change Question....

    I have attempted to find the answer myself but I have not found the specifics I am looking for. I own ironandladders.com, I was wanting to add this domain to my blog and take the wordpress.com out of its title. I have links to my blog from other sites and get a lot of traffic from people typing in the .wordpress.com url.

    Anyways my main question is if I add that domain, will the old links from peoples sites still work? If someone types in ironsandladders.wordpress.com will it automatically take them to the new domain ironsandladders.com?

    Thank you to anyone that can help.

    The blog I need help with is ironsandladders.wordpress.com.

  2. Domain Mapping upgrade allows you to automatically re-direct your traffic from http://ironsandladder.wordpress.com to http://ironandladders.com. You existing visitor will not see that differenence.

    Thanks for the fast response. I will give it my best shot, I didnt fully understand that support document, but i will attempt it and see what happens. I was just worried I would lose that traffic if I dropped the wordpress.com out of the url.

  4. When I bought the upgrade for my blog, I did not lose any visitors. You will not see the difference after the upgrade.

    p.s. Google will take some time to re-index with your new blog name.

    Thank you, I got it done and it is working fine. No change in the old links.
