Blogger has recently started re-directing all BlogSpot visitors to country specific TLDs (ccTLDs), which has become a major concern for all BlogSpot users and SEO related problems which may negatively impact the traffic of a blog. The .in/.au/.us and 15 other ccTLDs of your blog at the moment will not get a PR and hence backlinks to those URLs won’t be counted and taken into consideration.
Finally we have a script which will automatically re-direct all your visitors to the .com domain of your blog and prevent redirection to the country specific ccTLDs/URLs.
Steps to Stop Re-direction to ccTLDs
- Go to your Blogger Dashboard>Design>Edit Html.
- Find the following code in your blogger template
- Now paste the code below just above the </head> tag.
- Save your template and check if your blog is re-directing to a country specific domain.
Now visitors to your blog won’t be re-directed to a different domain but only to the .com domain of your blog.
