redirecting stats from one .com blog to a newly created .com blog
Hello I’m hoping someone can help me and I appologise in advance for the length of this, I’m just trying to be as clear as possible on what I want and give what I hope is the needed information.
I have an old blog https://littlegreencorner.wordpress.com , but I felt the need to create a 2nd blog to cover one area I blog on more specifically. At the same time, many people had told me they found the address of my original blog difficult to remember so, when I found that the name I used as a tagline in that blog was available as an address, I decided to create two new blogs: one to replace the original with a better URL, one to cover the topic in more detail, they are: https://theenglishwomansblog.wordpress.com (Published)
https://fishinginbrazil.wordpress.com (Private until I’ve got it set up properly)
I now realise it would probably have been better to have just changed the URL for the first blog but I didn’t see that option at the time.
I didn’t use the site re direct service for lack of finances at the moment. I hope to purchase the domains for both at some point in the future.
I exported ALL the content from the first blog to “theenglishwomansblog” and SOME of the content to “fishinginbrazil”.
I understand that it is not possible to use the redirect service for blogs for which you have already taken the name, but on one support forum where some one had a similar problem with two .com blogs, the happiness engineer had transfered the stats and (I think) the subscribers (unfortunately I now can’t find that link, just get to transfers between .com and .org).
So my questions are:
Is there a way to transfer my site stats and subscribers? If so can they please be transfered from https://littlegreencorner.wordpress.com to https://theenglishwomansblog.wordpress.com
I was wondering about the problem of repeated content, I have read the information given by Google about multiple content (can’t say I understood it all but…more or less), once the “fishinginbrazil” is published I will have the same content on 3 different blogs, woud you advise:
Deleting the content on the “littlegreencorner” blog, I honestly don’t think anyone has ever shared or linked to my content (that doesn’t sound very encouraging does it, boo hoo!) maybe just leaving a page saying that the blog has moved with a link, currently I have a sticky post there saying just that but all the content is still in place.
Or, on each page /post on the old blog should I put a link to the relevant page / post on the new blog and (or not) delete the original content?
Sometimes the stories will be relevant to both new blogs, is it ok to have the content repeated on the two new blogs or would it be better to “Share / reblog” from one ot the other.
Blimy I hope that’s clear to you :)
The blog I need help with is theenglishwomansblog.wordpress.com.
