    Just make sure all of your pages are located at the same links. If the links change, you will lose your backlinks and much of your traffic.

    Considering the fact that I can not find it in Google, I guess there's not much to worry about? :D

    Start with Wordpress. Close the structure/links w/ an example article or similar and then do the full move.

    If you search WITHOUT the quotes, which 99% of people do, you're on page 9 of the search results. That is about as close to "not found" you can get. So no, I wouldn't really worry that much. Not to mention that the link that shows up as the first result on Google (on page 9) leads to a non-existing page. So... nah. Don't worry about it.

    Your blog, due to the name, mostly (very generic, leads to a lot of false hits), doesn't really show up unless you put it in quotes when searching. Noone does that, unless they know what they're doing, hence... no loss.

    As mentioned try and keep the same URL structure otherwise you will need to redirect the old URLs to the new URLs.

    Keep the same URL structure for the most part. There are also plugins for Wordpress that can help you with redirects if you absolutely need to change your URL structure. That way, every link will still lead back to a page on your site and not a 404. Download your current sitemap and go through it like a check list after you launch your new site.

    I think it's almost impossible. As blogger is not self hosted blog, you can't either change too much things there. All backlinks will be lost too.

    One way to get your old visitors: .. You can put a new link on each page of old sites to direct visitors to your new site.

    if you update your blogger blog with your URL then all old URL will be auto redirected to you URL and you have to wait about 4 months so google will update your links etc. and then you can easily use redirection to move to wordpress .. otherwise there is no way...

    Don't. Don't use WordPress for your site since you are at least on page 9 you can optimize the existing site ans use WP on a subdomain to create memberships or whatever else you need to do. This very forum is on a subdomain and rightly so due to the fact that it uses a database. anytime you load WP your urls go to .php files and G will give you hundreds of bad links reported. There is a way to build a site and then wget the whole site with .html extension but the url are still broken links unless you change them manually.

    so my advice is HTML5, semantics and H tags as well as screenreaders; then build the new part in a blog subdomain which will give you MORE internal links.
