WordPress without a doubt is the worlds most popular blogging platform its been around a very long enough for any blogger to take notice. WordPress is now at version 3.0 I started using WordPress long ago however just now using it as my main blogging platform which now gives me the power to take this blog forward and where i want it to be for the near future.
The negatives during my migration a few things went wrong which had a negative effect on my website and Google Page Rank this is partly the fault of mine but no fault of WordPress or Google algorithm it happen because i had no time make sure all my redirects were set up. The problem came about because i was moving from blogengine.net to WordPress blogengine.net is an application written in c+ and the extension i was using was .aspx so all the ninety plus post i wrote and submitted to all the social networking websites like Digg and Face Book counts for nothing just do the maths 93 post submitted to an average of 6 social bookmarking websites that is an awful lot of link backs i lost from my blog.
Running WordPress in a windows environment was that simple and straight forward for me the server that hosted my blog was running IIS7 again i haven’t much experience in this environment especially when hosted with the worlds most complicated web hosting company Godaddy. Setting up WordPress redirects on Linux is easier for me because i am used to that environment now i have to dig deeper with windows environment and get a grip with the web config file a new task for me but the biggest task was time yes time i had not enough time to sort all these out because of exams and conferences. All my links build over the years have lost during the transition period no fault of anyone but mine never planned enough time for this and probably a little more research would have been great before the migration period, a valuable lesson learnt take note bloggers. i made the mistakes so you won’t.
Moving forward from one blogging platform another can be challenging however if you take time do some research that will be helpful but this point i am about to make is probably the most important one and that is list the things you need to change and most importantly how you are going to change this will pave way for a smooth change over. The over all result is great for me i have no regrets making this change blogging with WordPress is where i want to be and most importantly from an Seo point the blog no loads faster.
