  1. Hi,

    After importing 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 realizing the mess done, I imported the previously saved content, hoping to get ALL the original posts and pages’ URLs, but it didn’t 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 help me.

    Pleeease!
