Thank you so much for your quick reply.
I have done/checked the following:
- You don’t need to use our redirection plugin. Just change the DNS records (A and CNAME) in domain registrar by pointing IP address of hosting.
I've de-activated your Blogger to Wordpress plugin (and restored my old template in Blogger). I have just set up an A record for my domain, pointing to my hosting plan's IP address. - however, apparently a CNAME record cannot point to an IP address?!
- Use the same permalink structure like blogger URL for the WordPress blog. Go to WordPress dashboard -> Settings -> Permalinks and change it to /year/month/postname.html
Yes, I've changed this - can I ever change the permalinks in future? (The article linked from your main Blogger to Wordpress migration tutorial is broken: http://wpveda.com/how-to-change-wordpress-permalink-without-breaking-post-permalink-structure/)
- Make sure you run the fix.php file which is given in DIY article https://rtcamp.com/blogger-to-wordpress/tutorials/permalink-seo-migration/
I've done this again just now, and got the correct DONE message.
So, my question is: is everything working correctly now, with re-directing my Blogger blog to new Wordpress? I'm concerned as my hits have dramatically decreased after migrating last week to Wordpress...
