I'd like to merge one blog with another (let's say, Blog B into Blog A) and need some help. I know I can export the contents of Blog B and import them into Blog A. I'll hold on to Blog B and mark it as private, keeping Blog A as my operational blog.
Will there be any search penalty (Google, for instance) if the content from Blog B still shows in search results while it resides on Blog A? I'm concerned with the idea of "duplicate content" in search results. It'll take a little while before Blog B's contents no longer appear in search results.
What about bookmarks to the posts that were formerly on Blog B: is there any way they will be redirected to Blog A? Also, what about comments? Users can elect to be notified of new comments since they left a post. Will they be updated of such when the post is moved to the new location?
Thank you, in advance.
