Dear support staff and readers,
I have searched around the forum and internet, but I couldn't find the answer to my questions.
I apologizes in advance for my lack of knowledge and English mistakes.
I have a free blog on wordpress.com.
Here's the thing: I would like to go premium (easier for me, I really do not understand self hosting), with a new name for my blog.
I would like my blog "www.lejaponautrement.wordpress.com" to become "ameliemarieintokyo.com" (for example) because of a proximity between my blog's name and a French travel company.
My question is: if I go premium, get a domain with a new name for my blog, would I lose traffic and SEO ? Not that my ranking is so great, but I spent a few month on this blog, and I would hate to go back to start again.
Would I need to buy some kind of redirect service before ?
Thank you very much in advance for your patience and your time.
The blog I need help with is lejaponautrement.wordpress.com.
