In July I switched from Blogger — a publishing platform I’d been on for more than five years— to WordPress.

Bloggle had always enjoyed pretty amazing search relevance at Google… without any particular effort on my part to optimize things. However, within days of switching platforms, traffic arriving from Google started falling off, despite my efforts to carefully redirect a few resulting changes with permanent (301) redirects as recommended by Google… and today Bloggle appears to have been all but abandoned by the engine.

Anybody else switch away from Blogger and find they’ve been shut out of Google?


I should add that the number of folks visiting Bloggle — despite the Google embargo, and my, er… inconsistent frequency of posting — has never been higher. So, thanks for stopping by. 😉
