Tumblr has fast become one of the most popular social blogging platforms, quickly surpassing all previous newcomers. As popular as Tumblr is, there is a growing number of people wanting to leave this platform for something a little more robust, such as WordPress.
We may be a little biased, but we think that’s a great move on your part. With your own self-hosted WordPress site you will be able to do things that you currently can’t do while on Tumblr. Having total control of your own website is what it’s all about, right?
What you can expect from your Tumblr to WordPress migration
- All your posts get transferred to WordPress. Every last one of them
- All your pages make the trip as well, especially your important personal ones
- All your images are physically migrated over to your new WordPress website.
- Do you have videos on your website? We migrate those too and can even convert them to HTML5 video if you like
- Docs, PDFs, etc
- Do you have any documents on your site? All your important documents get moved over so your business can continue to run smoothly
- All your blog posts are categorized with tags. We make sure that your migrated blog posts contain their original tags
- You won’t lose the value of any backlinks with our migrations! We ensure that all the proper 301 redirects are in place
- Broken Links
- A lot of sites we start to migrate contain broken links. We fix all broken links during migration so your website performs even better
- Comments (if necessary)
- Not everyone wishes to migrate blog comments over, but if you desire this, it can be done
- Custom theme to match your existing website
- We can easily create a custom WordPress theme that is identical to your current website
- Custom designed theme
- If you’re looking for a fresh new look after migrating from Tumblr to WordPress, we can design and build the perfect website for you!
- Stock WordPress theme
- Or you can simply opt to migrate your Tumblr website into one of the many free or premium WordPress themes available
- SEO Optimized Themes
- The WordPress themes we create are built using the best SEO standards in website development. Others may say the same thing, but we’re more than happy to back that claim up
- Responsive Design
- If you want visitors to easily connect with your site on any device, such as laptops, smartphones or tablets, then responsive design is a must. We can turn your desktop site into a universally accessible website
- Complete Analytics Setup
- Google Analytics is much more than just the tracking code. We can fully set up your analytics so you’ll have complete knowledge of what is happening on your website
- Feedburner Migration
- If you use Feedburner for blog subscribers, don’t lose those readers with your address change! We can help you keep the readers you have after migrating
- Your website may need forms for allowing visitors to contact you. We can create a variety of forms for your website ranging from simple contact forms to complex, multi-page forms
- Spam Protection
- Unfortunately, blogs are spam magnets. After every migration we perform we leave things set up to minimize the annoyance that blog spammers cause
- Speed Optimization
- We build WordPress sites to run as fast as possible. Your visitors and search engines will appreciate this
- Intense Security Measures
- We take WordPress security very seriously. That is why every WordPress site we create for our clients implements multiple layers of security to keep your business and website safer from hackers
- Customized Features
- Every website is unique in its own way and often requires creative solutions to achieve their desired goals. We can work with you to create the functionality you and your business needs
- Tumblr is limited
- While Tumblr has great social sharing abilities, the options of what you can do with your site are somewhat limited
- WordPress is flexible
- Self hosted WordPress has the ability to do almost whatever you can think of. Your only limit is your imagination
- Tumblr is ultimately in control, not you
- While the majority of tumblr users will never run afoul of Tumblr’s TOS, the fact that your site is on the Tumblr network means you are not in full ownership of your website
- WordPress gives you complete control
- Changing your theme takes seconds. Sidebar widgets work in a drag and drop interface. Password protect posts you only want certain people to see. Or use something like BuddyPress and turn your site into a mini social network controlled by you!
