Change Blog Address

    Hi All
    My primary blog address is http://planetbudge1970.wordpress.com/ which points to “planetbudge.com” after I purchased the Domain upgrade. No issue with that.

    However, as my site has evolved, I notice that Google still shows layouts, styles and content from over 12 months ago. I understand that you guys have no control over Google caching and indexing methods. I’d prefer users get a file not found ‘404’ error
    rather than seeing outdated styles and content.

    So my question is: Can I transfer my blog to “planetbudge.com” and make it the Primary blog? I would like to delete the “planetbudge1970.wordpress.com” account

    Thank you in advance
    Adrian

    The blog I need help with is planetbudge.com.

    You are domain mapping from http://planetbudge1970.wordpress.com to http://planetbudge.com/ and there must be an underlying .wordpress.com blog to domain map from. I’ll tag this thread so Staff can explain this to you. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.

    Hi planetbirdman,

    As timethief explained, if you are hosting a blog at WordPress.com there must be a WordPress.com blog address/underlying blog.

    To improve your search engine results, you might try authenticating your blog with Google Webmaster Tools:
