    Hi wordpressians:

    i just bought a vanity domain (my name) and would like to map my hosted wordpress blog to that new domain, using the (very reasonably priced) domain mapping service. However, I have been lucky enough to build up a fair bit of seo for some pretty useful keywords which drive a tonne of traffic to the blog. if i use the domain mapping service, will i be able to keep that “google juice” or do i need to start from scratch? what happens to the internal and external links directed into the old blog when i change to the new domain?

    i also run a feedburner feed off of the blog – is it a quick and easy fix of changing the target feed to keep my subscribers?

    cheers all!

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

    Any links or search results pointing to blogname.wordpress.com/YYYY/MM/DD/post/ will automatically be forwarded to domain.com/YYYY/MM/DD/post/

    As to the feed, you need to change the feed URL at Feedburner.
