You can move your logs over if the logs on your other blog can be exported in the same format as FC2 logs (Movable Format). FC2 Blog will absorb these logs.

Q. What should I do if I want my blog to appear in a search engine (Yahoo! Google etc.)? What do I do if I don't want my blog to appear?
A. Registration standards are set by each search engine and as such we cannot provide any information as to how to get your blog to appear in search results etc. There are search robots that regularly move around and list sites within search engines called "crawlers". The period that crawlers are active for differs between search engines, but the period is set and as such your site will not necessarily show up immediately.
Please keep in mind that there is every chance that a search robot has not reached your site yet.

It is possible in most cases to make a request for removal to search engines in cases where you want your blog to be removed or when your blog is still listed on a search engine after cancelling your registration.

Q. What is RSS? What is the RSS URL for my blog?
A. RSS is a format that transmits a summary of a site's articles, postings and updates. RSS makes it so that a user site can be easily seen by many people. It is mainly used to transmit information about changes and updates made. By using RSS, the sites headings are collected, which allows the simple viewing of the site's title, address, update time and name as well as headlines which are used by RSS reader software. By using RSS information, one can collect the updated information of many sites in a streamline manner.

Please add [/?xml] to your blog's URL for RSSURL.
E.g. http://staffen.blog.fc2.com/?xml
