Blogger to WordPress Redirection Using Plugin

Blogger to WordPress Redirection Using Plugin

The page which migrated from blogger to WordPress blog also needed to redirect the visitors from the blog to WordPress blog. We can set the redirection of the blog to the homepage of the WordPress blog without the plugin but the users will not afford that when we land upon a home page unexpectedly. The plugin can help us to fix this problem. It will handle the traffic redirection part in a way that the visitor will be redirected from the post on a blog to the same post on the WordPress blog.

We can use the “Blogger to WordPress” plugin to set the redirection. This plugin handles everything automatically and we can set the redirection without many efforts. The mapping between Blogger.com and WordPress posts is done on a 1-to-1 basis for both search engines as well as human-visitors. Search engines redirection is taken care of by using META Refresh tag and “rel=canonical” tags. Together these techniques should be able to compensate for 301-redirection, which is the best solution but not possible on Blogger.com server.
