Possible to transfer WP blog and all content to a sub domain?

I am adding an ecommerce front to my PB based blog. Is it possible to transfer the content from http://www.thesevenology.com, currently where my blog is hosted, to blog.thesevenology.com or thesevenology.com/ blog. Additionally, I'd like to install a magento hosted ecomm site on thesevenology.com.

If I were able to make the move of my blog to the subdomain, will that messup my seo, google ranking, etc?

    Hey Jennifer,

    Hope you're doing well today!

    Yes, so you could export your posts then import them into your new installation :slight_smile: you can do this using the WordPress import/export tools located:

    Dashboard > Tools > Import.

    If I were able to make the move of my blog to the subdomain, will that messup my seo, google ranking, etc?

    You will want to make sure you do a 301 redirect for all those posts. You could use a plugin such as this: https://wordpress.org/plugins/redirection/

    301 redirect tells Google that those posts have permanently moved :slight_smile: this way it shouldn't mess up your SEO.

    Hope this helps! Let us know if you still need any further assistance.

    All the best,
    Tyler
