I have a blog on wordpress.com (hockeynarrative.com). I am thinking of moving hockeynarrative.com to a different platform and exporting all content to that new platform. And I am looking at the Site Redirect service that wordpress.com offers.
My questions are:
—as I will be using the same custom domain at the new platform, do I redirect wordpress.hockeynarrative.com to hockeynarrative.com? Or, do I redirect to the new un-customized domain name at the other platform (like wordpress.com, the other platform allows you to use your own domain)?
—at some point (presumably after the transferred content is indexed by Google and others at the new platform) after you do the redirect, do you then go back and delete the content that you have on wordpress.com?
Any feedback on these questions would be appreciated!
The blog I need help with is hockeynarrative.com.
