301 Redirects on Blogspot Permanent

Hello, this time, I will post a tutorial on redirecting 301 from the old domain to the new domain on Blogger or Blogspot. This method applies to those who already use a TLD (Top Level Domain) or the default subdomain, namely .blogspot.com.

What Are 301 Redirects?

Previously did you know what a 301 redirect is? Redirect 301 is an attempt to redirect (redirect) the URL / Domain or permalink of the old blog to the permalink of the new blog automatically. In addition, what is redirected is not only on the homepage but also applies to post pages and static pages.

An example of this 301 redirect model can be switching the old domain name to a new domain name, such as https://olddomain.blogspot.com redirected to https://newdomain.blogspot.com.

Or blogs that use TLDs can redirect to a new TLD (with the same domain name). For example, https://www.mydomainname.com becomes https://www.mydomain.net

In full, the illustration of a 301 redirect is as follows:

https://www.mydomain.com/
https://www.mydomain.com/p/page-static.html
https://www.mydomainname.com/2021/06/permalink-post-blogger.html

If we wanted to redirect to a new TLD, then each would result in something like this:

https://www.mydomain.net/
https://www.mydomain.net/p/page-static.html
https://www.mydomainname.net/2021/06/permalink-post-blogger.html

Redirect 301, especially on Blogger or Blogspot, will help a lot of things, which will be described below.

Reason for Redirecting 301

There are various reasons why we need to redirect a 301 domain, including the following.

1. Domain banned Google Adsense; If Adsense has banned the domain, then the possibility of being accepted back into a Google Adsense partner is a dream that will never come true. The solution is, all articles are moved to the new domain, then redirected 301 from the old domain.

2. Want to combine several blogs into one; Since the blog on the old domain is still in a good position on Google serv, the smart way to do after importing all the content into the new domain is to redirect the URL (permalink) of the old domain to the URL of the new domain. So that blog visitors on the new domain are increasing, not even deleting the old blog. That's a blunder!

3. Old domain names look ugly; Maybe because there are memories of the former, the name of the blog will look like the name of a creature who likes bones.

In essence, the main purpose or reason for doing this 301 redirect is to maintain the existence of visitors and blog page views to a new domain because the true visitor will still enjoy the content he wants without realizing that he has been at a new domain URL.

Redirect 301 steps on Blogger or Blogspot

1. First, set up a new domain name or new TLD. Please buy first the services of your favourite domain provider.

2. Create a new blog, then replace the domain with the newly purchased domain name or TLD.

3. After the domain propagation process is complete and the new domain can be accessed, please log in to the old blog. Go to the Settings > Manage Blog > Back Up Content.

4. Open the new domain dashboard again, then Import the content that was downloaded from the old blog. Via the Settings > Import content.

But Before Importing Content, don't select Publish Automatically. It is recommended to post articles manually. Because the permalink of the old blog must be the same as the permalink of the new blog, mainly post page permalinks.

5. Next, go to the Posts > Drafts. Please edit the posts by equating the permalink from the old domain to the new domain. Don't forget to also edit the body of the post via HTML (not Compose). If you use the internal link technique, the domain is recommended to be changed to a new domain.

6. Reopen the old domain dashboard, select the Template > Edit HTML. Look for the code </head> or <!--<head>--><head> then put the following code above the code earlier.

<script type='text/javascript'>
var d='<data:blog.url/>';
d=d.replace(/.*\/\/[^\/]*/, '');
location.href = 'https://www.mydomain.net' + window.location.pathname;
</script>

Don't forget to replace https://www.mydomain.net with your new domain. And Save Template.

7. Done.

Well, that's the tutorial on how to redirect 301 from the old domain to the new domain on Blogger or Blogspot. Hopefully useful... See you..
