    I would suggest you ask google on how to remove links from their site.
    Maybe they could give you some pointers.

    That doesn't help I know. Sorry.

    Why not think about this.

    New site, new content, no Google penalty.
    {works for everyone else}

    Drive the same route everyday, end up at the same place.
    Drive a new route, take new corners and find you might end up somewhere else.

    Worth thinking about.

        You can move the post and pages from wordpress to another wordpress site easy by exporting the information from wordpress and importing it to a new wordpress site!

        However you cannot delete from google! BUT.......

        If you are using the same domain name on the new site then google will just crawl the new site and pickup everything!

        If you are not using the same domain name and you export import to a new wordpress you will have to make a few edits so when the site is crawled in wont be picked up as duplicate!

        You need to post more information as there are a lot of unanswered questions.

        1) Is the new site wordpress?
        2) Are you going to use a new domain name or the old one?
        3) What did you want to move to the new site - Post, Pages, etc....?
        4) Are you using the same hosting account or a new one?
        please explain more?

    If I read you right you want to use the old content on the new site (without it causing a dupe scenario). Never done it but I've heard tell of folks deleting content and waiting until it's been "forgotten" by google i.e. it's no longer cached. Tricky to tell if that really works, though. Especially if it's not been a long time since the old stuff was available.

    Truly looks like a case where you might be better off starting from scratch.

    You said you were using wordpress, so export your content in the tools menu, import it to your new blog and 301 all the old posts to their new locations.

    As to your first question, I use a great tool called WP Twin to copy and move Wordpress sites. The other way is to zip up the entire site using cpanel file manager, copy it to the new site, then unzip it. That way you will have all the files, directory structures and uploads.

    You will also have to create a new Wordpress database on the new domain and then import the old content from the old site.

    Simple.

    1. Transfer your WP site using the free Duplicator plugin.

    2. Set up 301 redirects on your old domain to point to the corresponding page on the new domain.

    I really like BackupBuddy - the premiere WordPress backup plugin to backup, restore and move WordPress | iThemes. I use it for all of my domain transfers. Setup and use is straightforward.

    Simply duplicate the content to the new site and delete from the old site.

    If the old site is penalized then don't 301 redirect it. If the old site has panda issues, fix the content before going through the trouble of building a new site.

    Good luck

    It's not free but I used BackupBuddy to move a site to a new domain. Not only does it move the content, it will attempt to update the links within your existing posts to point to the new domain.

    I created a separate 301 redirect for each page on the old site to each page on the new site. I did this to make the permalink structure on the new site more SEO friendly. The 301 will make the new site show up in search results.

    I didn't delete the content on the old site as it's not required. The duplicate content penalty is incurred only when content is duplicated within one website.

    copy everything that you need to your new site then when you are done, delete everything from your old website including your database and domain.

    As far as I am concerned, transferring articles from an old site to a new one needs manual labor. never heard nor have tried a software that would do it for you. It is very easy but tedious in a sense for you have to copy and paste it on every page.
