ok, excellent. You might want to consider doing what is called a 301 Redirect. You can find more info here: http://www.theinternetdigest.net/archive/301-redirects-seo.html

Scroll down to 301 redirect section. You will want to consider this for several reasons:

1. Less effort (don't have to move your old posts).
2. Your search engine rankings won't be effected (you will be able to keep your link popularity....as posts age google does favor them more and looks at them to be credible.
3. You won't loose any "link juice." When people point links to your blog it is a very good thing (as long as it is a "do follow" link. You would be starting from scratch with the new one.
4. Your content won't be considered "duplicate content." Google will always allow the first "indexed" article to rank better.

I know I just gave you alot of info. Depending on your experience it may not make sense to you. One of my first blogs had about 30 posts in it when I decided to switch the domain. I had someone from scriptlance.com do it for me in less then a few hours and I paid him between $10-20. I was able to move on down the road without skipping a beat. You can also take your current theme and upload it to the old one. Looks like they are both Wordpress.

Just some thoughts...

Thanks Brian. Great explanation. I took a moment to check out your new blog. Looks like you are on the right track. I noticed you are just getting started. Your in the perfect place to target the right keywords up front and get a jump start. With my first blog, I just wrote about anything for the first 50 post. Then, for the next 50 posts I applied some strategy like keyword targeting. I can tell you that it made a difference. I tripled the amount of traffic from my last 50 posts to the first 50 posts. Would love to help you anyway I can get your blog off the ground.

Wordpress.prg was a typo HAHA.....
Wordpress.com is a free account but you do not have complete control over everything.....it is like having a blog like: mypassion.wordpress.com
Wordpress.org is where you can install the blogging platform for your own blog. It is the process that I recommend. Keep asking questions......it will take a little while for it to all sink in.
Comment by Donna McQueen on July 21, 2010 at 2:58pm
Thank you, Jonathan. This is great info you're giving us! And very timely for me. What is the difference between Wordpress.com, Wordpress.org, and Wordpress.prg?
So glad you're sharing with us!!!

Hi Scott, Yes I will cover ideas on how you can make money on your blog. Some just choose to get their message out (like a charity) others are interested in making an income talking about things they love.
