    Hi Guys,

    I have some content on one of my Wordpress blogs that is currently part of a "page." I want to move this content to a different part of my website and have it become a "post." My question is: will Google penalize me (or think I have duplicate content) because I delete that page and then move the comment to a post?

    Thanks in advance for your help guys!

    If you're moving the content just do a 301 redirect from the old page to the new and you'll be fine.

    Edit: I think I misunderstood. If you're deleting the old content you should be fine if it's no longer on the original page.

    Nobody has ever been penalised for something like that. So yes do this way and use 301 redirect.

    If you delete the content off the page then it is not duplicate content.

    301 redirect is the most efficient and Search Engine Friendly method for webpage redirection. It's not that hard to implement and it should preserve your search engine rankings for that particular page. If you have to change file names or move pages around, it's the safest option. The code "301" is interpreted as "moved permanently".
