    I started a blog in January that became popular enough (or i assumed) to create my own URL and website. Currently my old blog indexes higher than my site, and seems to be the only reason my site gets any traffic. I have a "we have moved" link on my blog to my new site.

    My question is should I totally remove my wordpress blog? Would it help my site preform better or would I just lose all of my referal traffic and not gain anything? I'm fairly new to SEO so I am kind of lost. Thanks a lot.

    You could just leave it and see what happens. Eventually your main site should start to outrank it. Based on authority.

    Or you could keep maintaining your wordpress blog, with short summery and backlink to your blog.

    Or you could just delete it, and see what happens.

    I don't mind that preview idea at all, I might try that. I'm just kind of paranoid that after I delete the wordpress blog my traffic will drop to zero. It's reassuring that at least I'm not damaging my www by keping it up.
