Blogger to Wordpress
I was editing an old post on one my blogs and I made the change (quickly glanced at it) and went back in to change again. For some reason, this triggered some kind of bug and it stated that this was a potential spam blog that had to be reviewed and so I filled in the captcha and just waited a few days. When you visited any URL they threw up a stupid splash page stating that it was under review. Only last month for the same blog, Google had contacted me advising me to use image ads for Adsense. Typical.
Well, this morning I got the message that the site had been deleted (reviewed and confirmed as in violation of our Terms of Service for: SPAM). Not only this, but another two blogs had also been deleted saying the same thing (even though neither of those had any kind of warning).
I have spent hours looking over the web and this kind of thing seems to be happening all of the time (even more so now). Alike with Adsense, they provide no support at any time and just send the same old automated messages. The Blogger help forum is also completely useless.
I know I'm a moron for not self-hosting before now, but I figure now is a good time to GTFO. With 17 or so sites I have, there are plenty of tutorials around for moving the sites from Blogger to Wordpress (keeping hold of rankings and so on). I am not aware of the best hosting, but quite a few people say that BlueHost is a good one to head to?! Wordpress is obv the platform to go with.
The one issue I have is with these three deleted blogs (two of them are major money sites as well). I can no longer access these blogs, but there is a restore and send request button, which looks to be a complete waste of time bothering with from what I have read up on.
Is there any possible way to keep hold of these blogs or are they finished? Every post I have made can be found in the Google cache so re-posting them on a new platform wouldn't take too long, but setting all of Wordpress up probably would. Then there is DNS, the URLS, setting up Wordpress etc that is a bit cloudy.
Just thought I would seek some advice before diving in. Thanks for your suggestions.
