WordPress Blog Migration

Moving platforms and not sure what to do with your WordPress blog?  Don’t worry there are options!   

While BigCommerce and Shopify offer built-in blog functionality, many store owners prefer the familiar and easy-to-use interface that makes WordPress the world’s most popular blogging platform.  So it comes as no surprise that many want to continue using it.

Transferring years’ worth of blog posts from WordPress to Shopify or BigCommerce is a manual process, and one that is not without challenges as far as data quality, formatting, and search engine optimization is concerned.

When it comes time to make a decision as to what to do, here is what we recommend based on each individual circumstance:

You have a Yahoo! Store, use the built-in WordPress blog, and are moving to another eCommerce platform:

We recommend you continue to use WordPress.  Your Store Wizards can:

  • Set up new WordPress hosting*
  • Migrate blog posts from your old WordPress blog to your new one
  • Transfer existing WordPress plug-ins to your new installation
  • Create a custom WordPress theme^ to match the look of your eCommerce store

You have a Yahoo! Store, use a separately hosted (GoDaddy, HostGator, etc) WordPress blog, and are moving to another eCommerce platform:

We recommend you continue to use WordPress.  Your Store Wizards can:

  • Create a custom WordPress theme^ to match the look of your eCommerce store and enable it on your existing WordPress blog and hosting.

You have a Yahoo! Store, are moving to another eCommerce platform, and would like to start fresh with a new blog:

We recommend you use the built-in blog for your new platform.
