  1. Well I for appreciate this information. I was thinking of the change as I got a new Recovery Column offer fro a top 10 recovery mag and they suggested I change to custom domain name. Thanks for sharing this important info as I will not do it now.

    I have worked to long to build my following and rankings on my own for years to have them lost! Much appreciate your post!

    1. You would keep your WordPress followers if they were following you before you made the change, but yes, I would be very, very wary of losing your Google and Alexa rankings – I’ve heard some online publishers check Alexa before allowing people to guest post! The problem with Gravatar is unbelievable.

      1. Well that sounds a lot more civilized. I also just checked (I updated my main article about it too) and all my internal links still have the old urls in them, so the internal SEO is also affected by the move (just to make it even worse). If I knew what would happen I never would have done this!
