Do you want to migrate your blog from Blogger to WordPress?

While Blogger is a neat free tool to start blogging, many beginners soon realize its limitations, and they want to switch to WordPress to get access to more powerful features.

In this article, we will show you how to properly switch from Blogger to WordPress without losing Google rankings.

Switching from Blogger to WordPress

Why Move From Blogger to WordPress?

Blogger is a popular blogging platform created by Google. It allows anyone to create a free blog using their Google account.

However, many beginners soon realize that there are a lot of limitations on what they can do with their free Blogger blog.

WordPress, on the other hand, gives you complete ownership of your website. It also allows you to add the necessary features to grow your blog and monetize your content. Plus, you can perform all the SEO optimizations to rank higher. We have created a detailed side-by-side comparison of WordPress vs. Blogger.

It’s important to note that when we say WordPress, we are talking about self-hosted WordPress.org, which should NOT be confused with WordPress.com, which is a hosted solution that has its own limitations. For details, see our article on the difference between WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org.

WordPress.org is the popular “WordPress” platform that you have likely heard about because it powers 43% of all websites on the internet.

That being said, let’s take a look at how to properly move from Blogger to WordPress while preserving your Google search rankings and website traffic.

Here are the steps that we will use to transfer from Blogger to WordPress:

Ready? Let’s get started.

Video Tutorial

Subscribe to WPBeginner

If you don’t want to watch the video tutorial, then you can continue reading the text version below.

Step 1: Sign up for WordPress Hosting

To get started with WordPress, you will need a domain name and web hosting.

For a quick reminder, a domain name is your website’s address that people type to get to your blog, and web hosting is where your website files are stored. Both of these are a MUST-HAVE to create any type of blog or website.

With that said, we recommend using Bluehost. They are one of the largest hosting companies in the world, and they are an officially recommended WordPress hosting partner.

Because WPBeginner is the largest WordPress resource site, they have agreed to offer our readers a free domain name and a 60% discount on hosting. Basically, you can get started for just $2.75 per month.

If, for some reason, you would prefer to go with a Bluehost alternative, then we recommend using either SiteGround or Hostinger because both are excellent solutions.

Once you have signed up for WordPress hosting plan and set up your domain name, you can go ahead to WordPress installation step.

If you signed up with Bluehost using our link above, then WordPress will be automatically installed for you.

If you used a different WordPress hosting provider, then you need to install WordPress by following our ultimate guide on how to install WordPress.

After you have installed WordPress, it is time to move your content from Blogger to WordPress.

Bonus Free Offer: Since a lot of you asked for this, we are now offering a free Blogger to WordPress migration service as part of our free WordPress blog setup service. This means one of our expert team members will do the entire migration for you (100% free). Yes, you can literally switch from Blogger to WordPress without any risk.

Note: Our free blogger migration service is for smaller blogs that have less than 1000 blog posts. We can offer a migration service for larger blogger sites, but that will be a paid service.

However, if you are someone who likes learning and doing things yourself, then you can follow our step-by-step tutorial below.

Step 1: Export Your Blogger Blog

The first thing you need to do is export your Blogger blog’s content.

You can do this by visiting the Blogger website and logging into your account dashboard.

After that, go to the Settings page. Scroll down to the ‘Manage Blog’ section, and click the ‘Back up Content’ button.

Backup Blogger content

This will bring up a popup showing what exactly is included in the Blogger backup.

You need to click on the ‘Download’ button to continue.

Download blogger backup

Your Blogger blog’s content will be downloaded to your computer in an XML file.

Once the download is complete, it is time to import your Blogger content into your WordPress site.

Step 2: Import Blogger to WordPress

To start importing your Blogger site into WordPress, log in to your WordPress admin area and visit Tools » Import.

On the Import page, go ahead and click on the ‘Install Now’ link below Blogger.

Install Blogger importer for WordPress

WordPress will now download and install the Blogger Importer plugin for you.

Once it has finished installing, you need to click on the ‘Run Importer’ link to continue.

Run Blogger importer

WordPress will ask you to upload the XML file on the Import Blogger screen. This is the file that you downloaded in Step 1.

Simply click the ‘Choose File’ button and upload the XML file you downloaded earlier.

Next, click on the ‘Upload file and import’ button to continue.

Upload the file to import

WordPress will now upload the import file. If your import file is too large, then you may see an error message.

In this case, you will need to increase your maximum file upload limit. If your file is small, then you won’t see any errors.

Next, you will be asked to assign posts to an author. If you have multiple authors on your Blogger blog, then you can create a new user account for each author. You can also assign these posts to existing authors on your WordPress website.

Assign authors

After making your selection, click on the ‘Submit’ button to continue.

WordPress will import all content from the Blogger export file to your WordPress site. You can view the content by visiting the Posts » All Posts page.

Imported content on your WordPress blog

Permalinks is the term used for the URL structure of individual pages. WordPress comes with a feature that allows you to set up an SEO-friendly URL structure.

Since you are importing content from Blogger, you need your URL structure to be as close to your old Blogger site’s URL structure as possible.

To set permalinks, you need to go to Settings » Permalinks in your WordPress dashboard and choose the ‘Custom Structure’ option.

After that, you need to add the following text in the box next to the custom structure field:

/%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%.html
Setting up permalinks

This permalink structure makes your blog post URLs similar to the URLs on your old Blogger blog.

However, sometimes your blog post URL, also known as a slug in WordPress, will not match the slugs used by Blogger.

To fix this, you will need to create and run a little code snippet.

We recommend adding this PHP code using the WPCode plugin. It is the safest way to add custom code to your WordPress website. For more details, please see our guide on how to copy and paste code snippets in WordPress.

add_action( 'init', 'wpb_update_slug' );

function wpb_update_slug() {
global $wpdb;
$result = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT post_id, meta_value FROM $wpdb->postmeta WHERE meta_key = 'blogger_permalink' ");
$wpdb->print_error();
foreach ($result as $row){
$slug = explode("/",$row->meta_value);
$slug = explode(".",$slug[3]);
$wpdb->query("UPDATE $wpdb->posts SET post_name ='$slug[0]' WHERE ID = '$row->post_id' ");
}
echo "DONE";

}

After saving the code, you just need to visit any page on your WordPress site to trigger this script.

Important: After the script has run, don’t forget to disable or delete it from your WPCode library because it only needs to run once.

Bonus Free Offer: Don’t want to deal with code? We have got you covered. Since many of you asked for this, we are now offering a free Blogger to WordPress migration service as part of our free WordPress blog setup service.

This means one of our expert team members will do the entire migration for you (100% free). Yes, you can literally switch from Blogger to WordPress without any risk.

Step 4: Set Up Redirects From Blogger to WordPress

The most important step in moving any website is to set up proper redirection so that you don’t lose any existing traffic or SEO rankings. You can see our ultimate WordPress SEO migration checklist for more details.

Note: If your Blogger blog has its own custom domain instead of blogspot.com, you may need to point your domain nameservers to your hosting provider. For instructions, please follow our tutorial on how to switch custom domain blogger blog to WordPress.

The crucial part of the redirection is to ensure that your users land on the same page on the new domain they were trying to access on the old site.

At the same time, you also need to ensure that search engines understand that your website is moved to this new location.

You need to install and activate the Blogger to WordPress Redirection plugin to do that. For more details, see our step-by-step guide on how to install a WordPress plugin.

Upon activation, you need to visit the Tools » Blogger to WordPress Redirection page and click on the ‘Start Configuration’ button.

Get the redirection code

The plugin will now detect the URL of your Blogger blog and show you the option to get a redirection code. Go ahead and click on the ‘Get Code’ button next to your Blogger URL.

It will now generate a code snippet that you need to properly redirect users from your old Blogger blog to your new WordPress site.

Next, you need to log in to your Blogger dashboard and go to the ‘Themes’ page. Click on the dropdown arrow on the ‘Customize’ button next to your theme, and then select the ‘Edit HTML’ option.

Edit blogger theme code

Blogger will now display the custom HTML code for your theme template. If you made any customizations to your Blogger theme, then you may want to copy the code and save it on your computer as a backup.

Otherwise, you can just go ahead and delete everything. After that, copy the code displayed by the plugin on your WordPress site and paste it into your Blogger theme editor.

Blogger theme editor

Don’t forget to click on the ‘Save theme’ button to store your changes.

Next, we need to set up redirects for mobile users.

You need to go back to the Themes page in your Blogger blog’s dashboard. This time you need to click on the gear button below the mobile preview of your blog.

Change mobile theme settings

This will bring up a popup where you need to select the ‘No. Show desktop theme on mobile devices’ option.

Then, click on the ‘Save’ button.

Disable mobile theme

That’s all, your Blogger blog will now redirect all your blog visitors to your new WordPress blog.

Alternatively, you can also use All in One SEO (AIOSEO) to redirect posts and pages from Blogger to WordPress. The plugin offers a powerful redirection manager feature that lets you set up full site redirects to your new site.

Plus, you can enable 404 error tracking and catch any broken links that may occur when moving your site to WordPress. This will help improve the user experience, and you won’t lose keyword rankings.

Step 5: Moving Other Content From Blogger to WordPress

In this step, we will move the remaining content from the old blog on Blogger to your new WordPress blog. This may require some manual work, depending on the settings/content of your blog.

1. Moving Pages From Blogger to WordPress

WordPress’s Blogger importer tool only imports Blogger posts and ignores pages.

To move your pages into WordPress, you will have to edit each page in your Blogger blog, copy its contents, and then manually create a page in WordPress.

To learn more about pages, see our article on the difference between posts vs. pages in WordPress.

Now, you will come across another issue. The Blogger pages have URLs that look like this:

http://example.blogspot.com/p/about-us.html

Your WordPress page URL will look like this:

http://example.com/about-us

To fix this, you will need to use the All in One SEO (AIOSEO) plugin. For instructions, please see our beginner’s guide on creating redirects in WordPress.

2. Widgets

Like Blogger, some WordPress themes also utilize widgets to add content to your blog’s sidebar.

To add widgets, you need to visit the Appearance » Widgets page in your WordPress dashboard and simply drag/drop widgets into the sidebars. For detailed instructions, see our guide on how to add and use widgets in WordPress.

If you are looking for a specific widget you don’t see in WordPress by default, then you likely need a WordPress plugin. You can search WPBeginner’s best WordPress plugin category to find the functionality you want.

3. RSS Feeds

Search engines and users who subscribe to your blog posts via RSS feeds will still be able to find your blog. However, they will not get any new content.

To fix this, visit the Settings page under your Blogger account. Next, scroll down to the ‘Site feed’ section and click on ‘Post feed redirect URL’.

Redirect Blogger RSS feed

This will bring up a popup where you need to add the RSS feed URL of your WordPress website.

Your WordPress feed URL will look like this:

http://example.com/feed

Don’t forget to replace example.com with your own domain name.

Add feed URL

Click on the ‘Save’ button to add the URL and save your settings.

Step 6. Things to Do After Migrating From Blogger to WordPress

Now that you have successfully moved your Blogger blog to WordPress, let’s take a look at what else you can do to improve your blog.

We have created a checklist of the most important things you need to do after installing WordPress.

    Hi,
    SEO is of course a significant reason to relocate to WordPress.

    I would prefer to not create the same permalink structure with migration, as I don’t want dates in the url.

    Is there another way to deal with the concern regarding 404’s, since I don’t want the same urls with dates?

    • WPBeginner Support says

      You would need to create a 301 redirect from the old location to the new url to prevent the 404 errors

      Admin

      • Tammara Garland says

        Thank you for your reply. I was just researching the WordPress 301 redirect plugin earlier today, and then saw your comment reply! :)

        I was hoping to avoid directly editing the htaccess file myself, so hopefully the redirect plugin will work correctly. I’ll have to test it first with my site that has the fewest posts.

        Thanks again.

  3. Missy Zane says

    Is there a way to import my Blogger theme to WordPress? I love the way my Blogger pages look, but I’m not happy with them on WP.

    • WPBeginner Support says

      That would require custom development or you could take a look at page builder plugins to customize the look of your site.

    What do i do to fix it? I have hunred posts so i think isnt possible to edit it manually

    • WPBeginner Support says

      You may want to reach out to your theme’s support to see if this is due to the style of your theme you are currently using.

    Hi. After migrating from Blogger, only few images were copied to WordPress Media Library.
    Most the migrated posts at the new WP site display the original images, located / taken from Blogger servers. How to copy all of these to WordPress?

    • WPBeginner Support says

      Did you get an All Done message after clicking the import button? If not you may need to run the import file again.

    Hello! I bought a domain in Godaddy. I have a custom domain with blogger. 1) how to migrate from the custom domain with blogger to WordPress? I don’t have wordpress account. during this migration procedure when install wordpress from Bluehost. wordpress account needed. I saw your video on youtube. please help me …. Thankyou

    • WPBeginner Support says

      Depending on where you purchased your domain, you would change your nameservers at that location to point to your hosting provider to see your WordPress site. You would create the WordPress login when installing the site or if you reach out to your host they can help you find your login information.

  7. Genevieve says

    That was fantastic. It worked just like in the video. You helped me out so much. Thank you for these tutorials!

  8. Ardi Ryanshah says

    I used to use custom permalink when published posts in blogger.

    If i used the step 4 and migrated my blogger site to WP platform, would the posts be the same link as previous?

      Step 3 is where you would set the permalinks on the WordPress site for them to be the same as on Blogger

    Hello,
    I just came across your article. I intend moving my self hosted blogger blog to wordpress but I have the following concerns.
    1). Those steps you mentioned are pretty technical and I might get confused along the way as I am a tech newbie.
    2) Can I manually copy and paste my articles to the new word press instead of going through all the steps mentioned above. Would visitors still find their way to the new site or would google restrict that?
    3. I heard about wordpress and their security issues. How do I work my way around this? I don’t have the finance to pay extra for security.
    What do you advise?

  11. Nitin says

    Hi, I used the same steps to redirect my blogger to wordpress site.

    But my website traffic reduced almost 90% :(

    How to ensure that traffic don’t descrease and it will take time to get the traffic and how much time it will take?

    Please suggest.

    • WPBeginner Support says

      You would want to ensure all of your redirects are set up correctly as the most common reason for that issue.

    Recently I migrated my blogspot subdomain blog to WordPress but now both my old site and new WordPress site are indexed. Old blogspot URLs are not getting de indexed and when I do fetch as Google in search console for old site URLs it shows as complete status instead of redirected. Do we need to use change of address tool here even for blogspot to WordPress migration.??

    • WPBeginner Support says

      You may want to ensure the redirect in your theme is saved properly and do you mean the posts that are currently on your WordPress site are not showing as redirected?

    Hello,
    I’d really like to migrate my custom domain BLogger to WordPress.org.
    To reasons concern me. The first one is that I know a site that the Google search links was sendig to other pages. He said his webmaster told it was attacked by hackers and it needed an antivurus.
    The second one is that I know another one and I see problems a lot of times.
    I feel secure on Blogger, I never have this issues, and to pay webmasters and antivirus seems expensive.
    Is that really a matter of concerns?
    Thank you.

    what to do if I have 2 blogger blogs and want to switch to wordpress and just keep both in one site.

    • WPBeginner Support says

      You would want to select the domain you want the sites to appear at and redirect the sites to that domain. If you have a second custom domain, if you speak to your hosting provider they normally have the option for a parked domain which redirects the posts to the other domain on your hosting account.

Google analytics worked fine and I thought Google adsense would be fine after I copied the code to my website. Then I just got a “no reply” email from Adsense saying they denied me because:
    …”Blogger, your hosted site was not available or not found (removed) at the time of the review…” I thought I followed all the directions to add the .com website to the Google Adsense account I already had on blogger. My adsense account was active for FOUR years and now I am denied? What can I do? Thanks!

    Is there any other way to redirect the posts correctly?

  41. Torben says

    Hello,
    I have a few questions.

    I have a huge blogger file and I have problems to split this one into smaller chunks. I have not found a way to split this file. So the workaround I used is, I converted this Blogger XML file to a WordPress XML file (WXR).

    1. Then I used the WXR splitter to split the file. This works fine, but the images which are in the post content are not downloaded to WP and replaced by the WP url. The images inside the post content still link to blogspot. Is this correct?

    2. Does this also happen when I use the Blogger Importer instead the WordPress importer? Are all images linked still to Blogspot after importing?

    3. How can I split that Blogger file to smaller chunks on a Mac?

    Would be great if somebody can help.
