Hello!

I had a webstie that used custom CMS. I want to move it to Wordpress, re-writing all content.

The problem is that it gonna delete all the already-indexed pages by google.. and probably will be a problem.

What would be the best way to change my site into wordpress without a punishment from google or negative results?

Hope to get an answer, it's very important for me. The domain is PR 2.

Thanks in advance!

Yeah, but this IS a forum about SEM and SEO NOT a technical advice forum for Wordpress.



Some of us have moved several sites from other Content Management Systems or a file based site to WordPress so do have the experience, but without knowing your exact problems or concerns  it's somewhat difficult to rell anyone what to expect or avoid.

 

Ask a specific question and we might be able to help.

Visit some wordpress forums and get recommendations from Wordpress experts. Get on some LinkedIn Wordpress groups. Google groups has a webmaster forum where you might get some 'general' help. Do some general research on how to set up redirects in your .htaccess file.

 

In a nutshell, you want to ensure that your old URLs are redirected to the new ones. But, as Chris said, ask a specific question to get specific advice.

I've been workign on it lately and I can give more specific information. Here are they:

1. I am going to write posts smiliar to my old website posts.

2. They will be different URL. I will use 301 redirection to redirect the old once to the new URL.

3. Stucked! Don't know how to do step 2. I have downloaded wordpress 301 redirects plugin, but it does't working - No redircetions. Any other way to do it? Yes, I am doing it manually each post! Got about 100 to do.

Don't know how to do step 2.

 

Edit the 'slug' for the post or page.

You might want to ask on the support forum for the redirection plugin. Sounds as though either you haven't set up the redirects correctly or there's an issue with the plugin. There are a number of redirection plugins available for Wordpress. If the one you have isn't working and you can't get support or figure out what's going wrong, try another one.
