SEO Data Transporter

How to migrate from any WordPress SEO plugins to any WordPress SEO Themes like Thesis – Everywhere on the net, I could only find how to migrate All-in-One SEO to Thesis but not on how to migrate Platinum SEO to Thesis (Note: Thesis is a WordPress theme that Craving Tech is using at the moment and it has built-in SEO tools).

After searching on the Thesis theme forum, I’ve finally found a recommended plug-in called SEO Data Transporter. Surprisingly, SEO Data Transporter actually allows you to migrate from many popular SEO plug-ins to many other popular SEO WordPress themes!

SEO Data Transporter

SEO Data Transporter supports migrating from/to:

WordPress Themes

  • Builder
  • Catalyst
  • Frugal
  • Genesis
  • Headway
  • Hybrid
  • Thesis
  • WooFramework

WordPress SEO plug-ins:

  • All in One SEO Pack
  • Headspace 2
  • Platinum SEO
  • SEO Ultimate
  • WordPress SEO (I believe this is the SEO plug-in from Yoast)

How to migrate from Platinum SEO to Thesis

Note: This process is pretty much the same if you need to migrate between WordPress SEO plug-ins and themes.

  1. Backup your WordPress first! I’d recommend using XCloner plug-in
  2. Search for SEO Data Transporter plug-in, install, and activate.
  3. Go to Tools – SEO Data Transport in your WordPress Administration to start using SEO Data Transport
  4. Pick the right migration plug-ins or themes that you want to process. In this case, I picked Platinum SEO to Thesis.

  5. Click on the “Analyze” button first to confirm that you’ve got the right ones and that the SEO Data Transporter can parse them correctly.

  6. Run Convert if the SEO Data Transporter can identify the records you are trying to migrate (like the screenshot above)

  7. Once completed, you can check whether the plug-in has run correctly. For example with the Thesis theme, you should see the values are being migrated across to Thesis SEO Details and Additional Style fields:

That’s it! It’s really easy and so far, no problems being encountered during the process (which only took a split second). In the future, if you decide to move from Thesis to something else, this plug-in should work by following the same steps. SEO Data Transporter makes it easy to migrate from any SEO plug-ins to any SEO WordPress themes!
