Migrating from WordPress

Migrating your blog from WordPress to TravelFeed allows you to import posts, drafts, and pages smoothly.

Why Migrate to TravelFeed?

Considering a switch? Here’s why migrating to TravelFeed from WordPress is a smart choice:

  1. Affordable Pricing: Get a free TravelFeed account with monetization or managed hosting from $15/month, whereas WordPress managed hosting starts from $35/month with added costs for plugins and themes.
  2. Built-in SEO: TravelFeed is SEO-ready out of the box. With WordPress, you need extra plugins.
  3. Social Integration: TravelFeed is not only a blogging software, but also a social network that gets your content seen by many travel blog readers, a feature missing in WordPress.
  4. Speedy Performance: Experience faster load times with TravelFeed, while WordPress can lag behind.
