  1. Your Post helped me to learn and implemented how to backup post and comments in my blogger sites. Thanks

  2. Hi.
    After import* posts, pages and comments to get content as it was (as I want) ALL my posts and pages URLs became unavailable (replaced by Blogger for others different and unwanted URLs) and ALL my posts and pages search descriptions disappeared.

    *as XML file by default from hard disk

    e.g. of url page before import = /p/terms-and-conditions.html e.g. of url page after import = /p/terms-and-conditions_35.html

    After realized the mess done, I imported the previous saved content hoping that will get ALL the original posts and pages url but didnt work out.

    I didn’t know this import would cause this kind of problem, besides content duplication which is quite bad too. I need to get back all the ‘original’ URLs and the search descriptions of every post and page. I need to reverse this situation, that can hurt SEO badly for sure.

    Someone can help me?

    Pleeease!
