    I have looked thru the posts but can't find the answer for going from WP to HP by changing the WP site to point to HP.

    I have a WP site with several technical presenatations built around a video format. There is a structure to the site that I want to keep, tree root, sub branch and so on.

    Can I move the  WP presentations (mp4 files) off my WP site to HP but leave a description of the content on the WP site with a link to HP?  I would have the same description on HP's. I would remove the content from YouTube as well.

    Can anyone suggest how I would start this, especially for the links to HP? Will these links change and break over time, How  circumspect is HP  about maintaining the original links?

    Thank you

    Hi there,

    You can't duplicate anything here unless it has been de-indexed by the search engines. You can upload your videos to HP, but they will need to accompanied by at least 700 words of text.

    You can link to HP from your site, but not the other way around, apart from one link in your profile.

    HP is, essentially, an article writing site. Check out the Learning Center - click Help, top right, to navigate there.

      Thank you, yes I understood about not having content on my site and HP.

      What I want is to move my site content to HP then delete all the content from my site, then place a link to the  content on HP. You have answered part of my question, thank you. But the other key parts are

      1. Can I take a link to my content from any browser and embedd that link into my site or is there another mechanism or tool?

      2. Will the above links remain true and unbroken over time, or is there ongoing maintenance on my web site that points to my content?

      3. How do I de-index the search engines?

      Thank you

        Okay, well you can't do this: "move my site content to HP then delete all the content from my site".

        You have to remove it from your site first. Wait for it to be de-indexed and only then publish it on HP.

        You then take the URL from your HP article page/s, type some anchor text on your site and add the URL to it.  Doesn't matter which browser you use to copy the URL.

        The links will stay current unless your articles are moved to one of the network sites. There will be a redirect in place, but I'm not sure how long it lasts. It's no big deal to replace the old URL with the new one on your blog anyway.

        You can request that Google, Bing, etc. de-index your web pages but I've never needed to do it. When I've moved content in the past, I've waited about a month before republishing. Just do a search on 'how to de-index web pages'.

            Something else occurred to me. You can move your content to HP and keep it in draft form. You can hold back on pressing the publish button until you are ready.
