Redirect Blogger Blog And Traffic:
In this post, I will show you three different way to redirect blogger blog and traffic to another website. If you wish to redirect your complete blogger blog including all of your posts, pages, images, archives and other existing URLs of your old blog to an external website or your new blog, then you will have to edit your blogger template.
You should use this method if you wish to move to a new domain. I will strongly recommend you to keep a backup of your blogger template before editing. If you don’t know how to backup your blogger template, then you may take a look on How To Backup Blogger Template to have a clear concept. Now follow these steps:
Redirect Blogger Blog To Another Website:
1. First of all login to your blogger account and go to your blog dashboard.
2. From the left menu click on “Template”. After that, you will see the “Edit HTML” button so click on it and open the HTML editor to see your blog’s template codes.
3. Now you will have to search and find the <head> tag. Copy the code from the box below and paste it right after the <head> tag as shown in the image below.
In the above code, the highlighted URL http://www.blogornate.com is the destination URL where your blogger blog will be redirected. So you must change this highlighted URL with your destination URL.
Redirect Blogger URL To Another Website:
We have seen above how to redirect the whole blog. Now we will see how can we redirect a single particular URL of our blogger blog to another external website.
You can use this method if you don’t want to redirect your whole blog except redirecting a single page. To do that find the <head> tag in the same way as shown above. Then place the code right after <head>.
If you wish that your old blog’s visitors will be redirected to your new blog after a particular time then you may use this code to do that. In this way when a visitor will come to your old blog, he or she will be automatically redirected to your new blog after a specific time.
You must replace http://yourblog.blogspot.com this URL with your blogger blog URL which one you want to redirect and also replace http://www.blogornate.com this URL with your own destination URL.
Redirect Blogger Blog After A Specific Time:
<meta content='5;url=http://www.tlpoint.com' http-equiv='refresh'/>
You must place this code right after the <head> tag of your blogger template, and this code will start showing the magic. You must replace “5” and the URL highlighted above with your desired time and destination URL.
There should not be any problem but if it’s not working for your blogger blog perfectly then open your HTML editor of your blogger blog template and place the above code right after this code:
<b:include data='blog' name='all-head-content'/>
