Error when attempted to import Blogger to WordPress

Problem: Error when attempted to import Blogger to WordPress. In WordPress, go to Tools/Import/Blogger, logged in with my Google account, and I got the error:

The page you are trying to access cannot be shown. Another website demanded access to your google-account but sent an erroneous formulated question. Please contact the website you tried using when you got this message to alert them of this error. The website “http://wordpress.com” hasn’t been registered.”

Solution: (this is a temporary solution only)

1. In Blogger, go to your Settings > Basic > Blog Tools > Export Blog.

2. Click on Download Blog. It’ll save as an .xml file.

3. Go to http://blogger2wordpress.appspot.com/ and find the .xml file and click Convert. It’ll save as a WordPress.xml file (wordpress-wxr.xml).

4. In WordPress, go to Tools > Import > WordPress.

5. Click Upload File and Import the file wordpress-wxr.xml.
