Trick to Stop Blogger from Redirecting Visitors to ccTLDs

Blogger LogoBlogger 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.

Below is a simple trick to stop the re-direction by Blogger using a JavaScript which stops users from being re-directed to their country specific domain and visitors to your blog will always see the .com TLD of your BlogSpot blog.

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.
<script type="text/javascript"> var blog = document.location.hostname; var slug = document.location.pathname; var name = blog.split("."); if (name[name.length-1] != "com") { var ncr = name[0] + ".blogspot.com/ncr"; window.location.replace ("http://" + ncr + slug); } </script>
  • 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.
