    Hey, guys! I'm trying to move my blogspot blog to self-hosted wordpress, but can't manage to do the 301 redirect properly. The blogspot posts are not redirecting. I'm getting this error:

    Access to the webpage was denied

    You are not authorized to access the webpage at http://website.com/blogger/?q=http://website.blogspot.com/2012/09/postname.html. You may need to sign in.
    HTTP Error 403 (Forbidden): The server refused to fulfill the request.

    I've used this tutorial: http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutori...-to-wordpress-without-losing-google-rankings/ and doesn't seems to work. Tried 2 times but can't mange to do it. I'm sitting in front of the computer 5 hours trying to redirect it properly. Please help me, guys. Thank you.

    Until you get the 301 working on Blogger, I would just update
    all your posts saying that the site was moved and place a link to the
    new site. If you're able to, I would also place a JavaScript redirect
    on those pages.

    Code:
    <meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="30"; url="http://www.YourNewWebsite.com">
    Hope this helps.

    The thing is that I want to keep my rankings. And from what I read, it seems that 301 redirect is the way to do it.

    The best tutorial is on mypregnancybaby website, it is easy and you will not lose a single traffic.
