How to Copy One WordPress Website with its Theme to Another WordPress Site

Are you looking to create a blog in a short amount of time? Or perhaps you’ve got an established blog and you’re looking to copy the theme and content of one blog to another. Either way, you’re in the right place.

In order to do this, you’re going to need a wordpress account. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered on that front as well. Today we’re going to teach you how to copy one wordpress website with its theme to another wordpress website.

Get The Same Look And Feel

One of the first things you’ll want to do is get the look and feel of the original wordpress website. This can be tricky, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered on that front as well. What you need to do is take a look at the original wordpress website and find the theme that it’s using.

Most themes these days are built using the Bootstrap framework which means you can easily find and customize a template that looks and feels just like the original wordpress website.

Find The Blog Address

Next, you need to find the blog address of the blog you wish to copy. To do this, simply go to the dashboard of your wordpress account and click on BLogs. This will bring up a list of all of your blogs. If you’re looking to copy a specific blog, you can use the search bar above the list of blogs to search for the address of the specific blog you wish to copy.

Once you’ve found the address of the blog you wish to copy, you can use the copy blog button to quickly copy the entire blog to your own wordpress account. Don’t worry, all of the content will be there and looking just like the original.

Rename The Blog And Give It A New Theme

Once you’ve copied your blog, the first thing you’ll want to do is rename it. What you need to do is give it a new theme. Why? Well, the original blog may have different requirements than your new blog. For example, the original blog may require a free software called “Akismet” to be installed on the site in order for comments to be moderated. But your blog doesn’t need this feature and it may even block spam comments.

You’ll want to change the theme of your blog to match that of the original. But if you find that the default WordPress themes don’t match the look and feel of your original website, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered on that front as well. What you can do is use a tool like Theme Chooser to find a theme that’s compatible with your original wordpress website. Once you’ve found the theme you wish to use, click on the customize button and make the necessary changes to match the design and layout of your original.

Find And Fill In The Blanks

One of the things that can be a pain point when copying content from one blog to another is figuring out where to put the blanks. What are blanks you may ask? Simply put, when you copy content from one blog to another, there are sometimes places in the copy where you have to fill in the blanks to make it make sense. These are often times the most frustrating parts of the process and can make you want to give up copying content altogether.

Thankfully, we’ve got you covered on that front as well. What you can do is use a tool like Yoast’s Copyscape to find all of the places in your copy where you have to fill in the blanks. In most cases you can just paste the copy you’ve gotten from the original blog and it will analyze the copy for you and tell you where there are blanks to be filled in. This is an invaluable tool and makes copy a whole lot easier.

Curate An About Page For Your Blog

While we’re on the subject of copy, let’s talk about curating an about page for your blog. The about page for your blog is a great way to tell people more about you and your blog. It can also be used to direct new readers to the other pages on your site. What you need to do is take some time to read through the content that’s already on the about page for your blog. Think of any improvements you can make and then add in some new content to the page. The more you add, the more interesting it will be to read. Don’t worry too much about making it perfect – this is actually a fairly easy process and something you can do in under an hour.

Why is this important? Having a well-written about page for your blog can do a few things. First, it can help establish your blog as an authoritative source in your niche. Second, it can help establish yourself as an expert in your niche. People love to follow experts and it can lead to more credibility and traffic.

When you’ve finished with the about page, you can add a link to the page in the navigation bar of your blog. Doing this allows for easy access to the page from any part of the site. If someone lands on the page and doesn’t know what it is, they’ll most likely leave the page thinking “What is this?”. Don’t worry, most likely they’ll come back once they realize what it is. This is completely normal and you should expect this type of behavior from someone who hasn’t heard of your blog.

Find The Keywords & Phrases That Are Mapping To Top Donors

Did you know that Google AdWords creates a keyword and snippet report for you that shows you the keywords and phrases that are currently mapping to the top donors of your website? This is something you can use to your advantage. What you need to do is take a look at the keywords and phrases that are currently bringing in the most traffic and money to your site. You can find these in your keyword and snippet report. Once you’ve found them, you can simply add them to the about page of your blog. Doing this can improve your site’s conversion rate and draw more leads and customers to it.

Google AdWords will automatically populate the about page with these keywords. What you need to do is just confirm with a quick glance that these are the right words for the about page of your site. In most cases, these will be the words that users are typing into Google searches as they’re trying to find your site. You want to make sure that these are relevant to what the page is trying to promote. If this is your first time using AdWords, you may find it a little bit overwhelming.

Set Up Automated Email Marketing

Another thing you can do to make copy easier is to set up automated email marketing. For example, if you’ve got a service like Mailchimp that allows you to create a list of subscribers, you can use this to your advantage. What you can do is create a list of subscribers who’ve opted-in to receive regular updates from your blog. Then, you can use this list to send out automated emails at regular intervals. Each email will contain a small piece of content that’s targeted at a specific type of person.

Why would you want to do this? It’s simple really. People who receive regular emails from an authoritative source in their niche are more likely to be interested in what the email has to say than people who don’t receive emails like this from time to time. This is because people who receive daily emails often feel like they’re missing out on something if they’re not subscribed to the service. So they go ahead and subscribe even if they don’t want to. This is called list-based marketing and it can do a lot to help grow your business.

Get A Virtual Assistant To Manage Your Social Media Accounts

Did you know that you can get a virtual assistant to help you manage your social media accounts? To do this, you’ll simply need to set up a quick meeting with the person you’re considering employing and then have them walk you through the process of getting your social media accounts set up with the proper information. Once this is finished, you can simply go back to doing what you do best – writing blogs and posting content to social media accounts. This can be a great way to grow your business without having to spend too much time doing it all by yourself.

Do you have a WordPress site that you’d like to copy? Or perhaps you’ve got an established blog and you’re looking to copy the theme and content of one blog to another? We’ve covered a lot of ground today, but the important thing is that you now know the basic tools you need in order to start creating your own blogs. Once you’ve got the basics down, you can move on to the more advanced tools which will help you become a more prolific and skillful blogger. Good luck out there.
