Moving Content To Wizzley

I've had all I can stand from a certain website that I currently write for, and I'm interested in moving all of my content here. What I would like to know is, is there a special procedure to doing this, or do I simply copy & paste here and then delete the content there?

 

If anyone has any experience or insight with this, I'd greatly appreciate your help.

 

Thanks Laughing

If your content on the other site is receiving traffic and generating income I would leave it there, just don't write any more there.

If however the situation is so bad that you just can't bear to leave your content where it is, then my suggested sequence to transfer it, is as follows:

1. Do not delete your content yet. Do not delete it all at once. Do not create all of your content on Wizzley at once (Google will not like it, particularly).

2. Copy the content to Notepad (preferably, as the formatting can be a bit of a hassle if you use a word processor like Word) or Word etc if you really must.

3. Delete the content you have copied from said other site, before you recreate it at Wizzley.

4. Let Google know that the content has been deleted and should be de-indexed (from said site). It will take a day or so to get it de-indexed from G.

5. Generate your content using the myriad facilities on Wizzley, there to create great looking articles (update the articles with additional content as you go).

Note: 1. Transfer your content over a period of time, doing say 3 articles a day or thereabouts (maximum). After the first transfer, allow Wizzley team to review it. Once published, OK'd by Wizzley, do the next two and wait again for approval. Wizzley has a policy to accept quality articles only (review the 'What's allowed' etc sections) - this is for all our good. You know the hassles caused by the poor quality articles previously allowed by other sites!

Note 2: If your content is flagged as already being available on the net, take a sample para and copy / paste it to Google search box. If G shows it to be your article on the other site, then just go ahead and publish (assuming that you have deleted it and told G, it will work out in the wash, in the end). If your article has been copied (thinking about it, it may be best to undertake a search before you delete it from the other site) then take action before removing it from elsewhere.

6. Once you've done a great job, you will be proud to announce it to the world. Announce it to the world.

7. Be aware that the first 3 (or is it 5) articles are not available to Google indexing until they have been approved by the Wizzley team - this is to ensure spammers are kept well away from the site - this, again, is for the benefit of us all.

8. If any of your articles is rejected, e-mail the team for an explanation - it may be just spelling or grammatical mistakes that have been picked up (if you use Word then these can be found beforehand). It may also be that the article is deemed over-promotional or not following certain guidelines. Either way, do not take the rejection as personal. The help received from the Wizzley team will make you a better writer.

Note 3: There are many articles in the 'Wizzley' category that will help and assist you going forward.

Finally, welcome to Wizzley!

Much of the above will not affect you as a seasoned writer, and is only included to ensure the bext transfer, should any difficulties arise. So don't be put off by no: 8 or any others for that matter, as they may not affect you.

Welcome to Wizzley 

once you have deleted the page from the other site you can expedite the de-indexing of the content from Google by logging into Webmaster Tools and submitting removal requests using the page below

Well, make sure that there are no other copies of your work out there. If there are file DMCA complaints first and only then delete the content and place it here.

There's no point in waiting because the content here is after the root domain and not on a subdomain. So I don't see a reason for search engines finding it fishy. Just make sure that it's de-indexed before you post it up here

Dearest, Sweetest Wizzley Team -

If you agree with Humagaia's excellent and detailed advice here, would you consider making this thread a "sticky?" Perhaps adding your own Admin tips to make the transition smooth?

"The other site" is bringing many refugees to Wizzley (about time, folks! I told ya a year ago!) and this is going to come up again and again. I might even be doing it with some of my articles there as well.

So nice to have a detailed process on how to do this (thanks Humagaia!) for present or future reference.

Hi pkmcr,

Thank you for posting that de-indexing tool.Someone else posted this before, and then I couldn't find the post again.

There is one article I deleted from another site weeks ago, and I intended to bring it here in due time. Do you think I still need to go through the formal de-indexing process or can it not hurt to do that anyway? 

I've heard varying lengths of time as to how long you need to wait when moving articles. Some people say two weeks, others say four and I've even heard six? I'm planning to do this as soon as I know it's safe.

What do you think?

1. Can't hurt

2. If it is yours and you have requested de-indexing, then move them as soon as you like (1 day, 2 days ... whatever). The de-indexing will take place when G decides to do it. You will not be penalised for duplicate content. And the sooner it is up and running the sooner you can start earning from it.

You are very welcome - sorry been caught up in meetings all afternoon so only just catching up.  As humagaia says it can't hurt and generally I am finding that they are actioning the requests in anything from 2 hours to 18 hours.

One thing to watch for is that a lot of those sites that were grabbing feeds from places like Squidoo will have your first few lines indexed so you may want to re-write those to avoid duplication.

One thing I would add to this discussion is to never move your content in anger - and I know there are certain sites which frustrate the heck out of us at times so I can understand people going "enough is enough"

When you move content move it because you think it can do better wherever you are moving it from, move it because it fits in better with your portfolio at a particular place or move it because you want to establish your presence for a specific niche on a particular site.

I am sure there are other reasons that people can add to the list of reasons to move content - but never move in anger!

That deindexing tool is a gem.

Thanks for reposting that link.

As is Copyscape, as it allowed me to find a pile of 'quotes' from my previous articles which I was then able to flag to Google as plagiarism or remind myself to ask the ste owners to redirect the link when it should be pointing here instead of my previous place of writing preference.


Described by one of my clients as 'a literary grammarian', writing, researching and reading are requirements for sanity, at least this side of the keyboard.

Paul, that is so, so true....

When possible, just keep your head held high and simply move to a new neighborhood. Starting fresh is always best (leaving the rest alone) when you can. I've thought about taking a few in my niche with me, but really procrastinate, not needing extra things to do!

Thank you all so much for the help, especially humagaia for that amazing explanation. This just goes to show that I made the right choice in coming to Wizzley. Laughing

 

While I hate to leave the other site, they have recently begun doing some things that are disturbing, to say the least, and have made me begin to question the ethics of those running the site. It's sad because I used to love it there, and it's sad to see what it's become.

I see a lot of familiar faces here however, and I'm confident that this is going to be an amazing site to work with.

Again, thank you all for the help.

 

Chuck.

Paul,

One of my pages from another site has been successfully removed. I plan to change the title, but do I need to do much, if any, rewriting? Or can I just construct it as is?

Thanks for your help.

I tend to re-configure pages to suit the new venue but don't tend to do a lot of re-writing other than tweaking - assuming that it's well written in the first place LOL
