Can You Flip Blogger/Blogspot Hosted Sites?

12 replies
I have 4 or 5 small sites that I just don't have the time or desire to put any more effort into. They all rank fairly well in the SERPS though, and with a bit of effort could make a decent amount of money each month. I have decided I would like to flip them.

These sites are all my own domains, but I use Blogger for hosting. I've had a look around, and from what I can gather, it seems it's either very tricky or impossible to flip them as they are associated with Google accounts.

I would have thought there would be some way of doing it(without giving the buyer the associated Google account in addition), but if there is, I'm not sure what it is.

If I can't flip them the way they are, then I could switch them over to Wordpress. Is there an easy way of doing that, and would I run the risk of hurting on page SEO and rankings by doing so?

Thanks in advance for any help and advice you can offer

    you could shift them to wordpress, and export all your posts along with it.

    Wordpress has this option where you can import all your posts.

    So essentially, your on page SEO would remain the same. Also, if you already have your blogger blog pointing to a custom domain name, you can retain the SERPs too

      It does seem like this is the best way of going about it, thanks The only thing I was worried about with this way of approaching things, was the amount of time I'd have to spend transferring the content and such. Will I able to do this fairly quickly for each site?

    I think you are pretty much stuck with them, unless you are going to part with the Google accounts. Once they are locked down with that account, you cannot move them, from my experience.

    In the future, if you think you might flip, I would highly recommend setting each blog up with a new Google account.

    Good luck.

    The wordpress export feature will take you about 5-10 minutes, at max.

    It lets you choose where to transfer from, and you can select your blog there, and let it do it's thing.

    It'll automatically create posts for you

    Hey Liam.

    You actually have no problems. You have your own domains. Just change the DNS to the corresponding new host, and migrate to Wordpress. But, make sure to keep the permalink structure same as that of Blogger.

    You can easily do this. Just sell them the Google Account login info and you don't have to worry about transferring or anything.
