How do I get my former followers/subscribers on my wordpress.com blog to be transferred to my new self-hosted? Is that a service that wordpress can help perform?
The blog I need help with is smarttereachday.com.
Yes. You have to install the Jetpack plugin, if you have not already and then connect it with the wordpress.com account in question. Staff can then transfer them over for you.
I’ve tagged this thread for staff attention and hopefully they will be around soon to take care of this for you.
Let us know once you’ve connected Jetpack to your WordPress.com account and then I’ll move the follower for you.
We can’t transfer anything for you until you have the Jetpack plugin enabled on your new site. Here’s a link that might be useful:
Once you have the plugin activated let us know:
1) The blog address where your followers/subscribers are now.
2) The blog address where you want your followers/subscribers moved to.
Once we have that information, I would be happy to take care of the transfer for you.
Thanks so much ! Jetpack is up and running! Old blog with followers is smarttereachday.wordpress.com. I’d love to redirect these followers to smarttereachday.com.
Thanks so much for the help!
and one follow up question…will this transfer both my wordpress.com “followers” and my “email subscribers”?
Yes, it will transfer your followers and your email subscribers. I’ll respond once I have completed the transfer.
Your followers have been transferred! Let me know if we can help with anything else.
