Blogger Blog-How to prevent Country Specific Redirecting

Blogger Blog-How to prevent Country Specific Redirecting-hile we create a new blog at blogger. Com, we are given a .com blog URL like blogname.blogspot.com but later we see that our blog URL has been automatically changed to blogname.blogspot.in. Did you ever think that why it happened and why by blog URL has been changed to a .in URL instead of .com URL This is actually called the geo specific or country specific URL. Blogger or we can say Google does change the blog URLs all over the world but this practice is adopted in a few countries, some 15-20 countries. This may have some disadvantages too in favour of bloggers. Let us discuss this issue in detail –

What is a country specific Blog URL

There is a TLD(Top Level Domain), the .com in the DNS(Domain Name System) of the internet operated by ‘Verysign’. Later the domain names like, .org, .net, .edu and many more were came into existence. Now every country has been allotted a country code top level domain, For example India has been allotted the code ‘.in’,  Australia has been allotted ‘.au’, Pakistan has been allotted  ‘.pk’ United Kingdom has been allotted code ‘.uk’ and America has been allotted the code ‘.us’. Hence if a blog’s URL ends with a domain name other than .com i.e. .in, .pk, .au etc is a country specific domain.

Possible disadvantage of Country specific Blog URL

The country specific blog URLs may have some negative impact on your blog as the URLs may differ for different users. Your Google+ counts, Facebook likes, number of Tweets may be less. The same problem may occur with your comments if you use a third party commenting platform like face book or disqus etc. There are chances of loosing some Google juice, if you don’t implement canonicalization properly. Thus we can see that it may have a negative impact on the factors effecting your page rank.

How to get rid of a country specific Blog URL

If you want a permanent solution of this problem, you have to make a small change in the <head> section of your blog’s template. Go to your blogger dash board, Template and take a back up of your template. Then click Edit HTML, The HTML file will open. Click ‘Ctrl+F’, the search box will open. Type <head> in the search box and press enter, the <head> Tag will be highlighted. Paste the following piece of code under <head>.

<script type="text/javascript">

                                /* Get the full URL of the current blogger page */
                                 var blog = document.location.href.toLowerCase();

                                 /* Do not redirect if the domain is .com already */
                                 if (!blog.match(/\.blogspot\.com/)) {

                                /* Replace the country TLD with .com and ncr switch */
                                blog = blog.replace(/\.blogspot\..*?\//, ".blogspot.com/ncr/");

                                /* Open the new URL in the current tab */
                                 windows.location.replace(blog);

                                }

                                </script>

Safely save your template and exit. Now your blog will always display a blogspot.com URL and not the country specific URL.
