I am a relative newcomer to blogging and am seriously considering moving my Blogger blog to WordPress, but have a few queries about the process. I have already set up my WP template and imported my posts and comments, but have set the blog to private. Can anyone advise what is the best way to open the blog and get it indexed by the search engines, without creating duplicate content on the web? I can't set my Blogger blog to private as I would need to point my followers to the new location.
I would be grateful for any tips from those who have done this.
