With so many bloggers migrating from Blogger to WordPress, I’m frequestly asked how to do so without losing Google Friend Connect Followers. So it’s time I post a tutorial on how to do it, so that I don’t have to explain anymore ;).
Go to http://www.google.com/friendconnect.
Select the Blogger/Blogspot blog being transferred to WordPress.
Select “Add the members gadget”.
Customize your widget’s colors and width.
Generate the code and copy and paste it in notepad. You’ll be pasting it the sidebar of your WordPress blog momentarily.
Towards the bottom of that code, there will be a 20-digit site id that looks like this:
Copy your 20-digit site id number and paste it in this URL after “id=”: http://www.google.com/friendconnect/admin/site/settings?id=
It should look like this:
Enter the edited URL into your browser.
Under “Home URL”, enter the URL to your WordPress blog. Save.
Now go paste the code you generated on the Google Friend Connect site in your sidebar/widget or install the Google Friend Connect Integration plugin.
