New in the Office Store is the Public Site Content Migration app.
You can use this app to copy pages, documents, images, navigation, and more from your existing website to your new website in Office 365. Learn more about the new Public Website in Office 365.
If your Office 365 account was recently upgraded, you’ll notice that you end up with two public websites. On the Sites page in Office 365, you’ll see the two websites like this.
The Public site (middle) is your current website and the New public site (right) is the new website introduced with the upgrade. With both websites available, you can take your time learning how to use the new website and upgrade websites at your own pace. Or, if you’re not using your current website, then don’t upgrade at all.
To start the upgrade, go to the new website and install the Public Site Content Migration App. (Choose Settings > Add an app select SharePoint Store and search for Public Site Content Migration App.)
Once you install it, open the app on your new website. (Settings > Site contents > Public Site Content Migration.) You’ll see this.
Follow the instructions, which starts with installing the migration app on your existing (pre-upgrade) website then returning to the migration app on your new website to finish. (Your existing website must be upgraded to the latest version of SharePoint before you can install the migration app there.)
When you finish migrating content from your existing website to the new website, it’s time to fine-tune your new website. This includes changing the look and feel, applying new page layouts, and adding website apps. In particular, you’ll notice that the gadgets from your existing site were not migrated, so you’ll want to recreate those using the built-in features or downloadable apps.
When you’re finished migrating content and customizing the new website, you’re ready to switch to the new public website. You do this in two steps. First, make the website public so that everyone can see it. (You do this from the new website itself.)
Then, you change the website address (URL) of the new website so it uses your custom domain name, (like www.contosobistro.com). This assumes you own a custom domain name; if not, then there’s no additional step here.
Go to the article Upgrade your public website to learn more about the migration app and the overall upgrade process.
If you have questions or comments, post them here and the Office 365 community.

The link at "Where can I learn more" is not working.
The link didn't work for me either because my language settings were set to Switzerland - German. Once I change it to United States - English, I could access it
I got to step one - ie adding the app - and get to the granting taxonomy permissions popup page - then it has an error message: "Sorry, you don't have access to this page ".
Microsoft acaba de liberar en el Office Store una aplicación muy necesaria para migrar sitios
I am also having trouble with the migration app. I get all the way to the 3rd step, but when I hit the Select All box (the other three are greyed out) the Migrate button is not enabled. What now?
doğru kullanılırsa faydalı olabilir
How do I add another public site? Tks.
I can't get past a message which says "Access required - Sorry, you don't have access to this page". I spent three days looking for a solution to this and all I've been able to find is other people with the same problem and no solution. Can anyone point me to the definitive solution as to how I solve this. I am the sole user, owner and designer and have just one website I am trying to migrate. MS don't seem very responsive to this issue
Tom, I've followed these instructions but I keep getting fails on step 3 of this app:
Error messages on step3:
"Import images and documents"= "Unsuccessful", and "Import site settings, "Import pages and site navigation" from "in Process" for several hours to "not started".
Please help! I need to make some website changes and this is completely blocking us!
