[resolved] 301 Redirect from Blogger (4 posts)

    I am in the process of leaving Blogger to WordPress with a unique domain.

    Has anyone used an effective 301 redirect which is embedded into your blogger?

    I have searched everywhere to no avail. Possibly a plugin?

    Thanks for any constructive help.

    To the best of my knowledge, blogger doesn't allow you to do this with blogspot subdomains. If you use blogger to run to your own domain via FTP, then you own that domain, I assume, so just redirect it yourself.

    With a blogspot site, you have to change your template to use a meta refresh or javascript refresh to redirect to your new site.

    Thanks for this suggestion. I Googled this a site that supplies further information:

    http://bloggerfordummies.blogspot.com/2006/03/how-to-redirect-from-old-url-to-new.html

    The instructions are as such:

    You want to use a new url for your blog. Your site have been indexed and have many incoming links. You want to keep you original blogspot.com url but want viewers to be automatically redirected to another website with the url http://newurl.com? This is how you do it. Paste this code

    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=http://newurl.com">

    somewhere in between the <head></head> tags like this:

    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=http://newurl.com">
    </head>
