Prevent Blogger from Redirecting to Country-Specific Domains
- The social stats – like your Facebook Likes, Google +1s and Tweet counts – for your blog posts may be reduced as the URLs for the same blog post will be different for different visitors.
- You will have a similar problem if you are using an external commenting platform like Disqus or Facebook Comments because the blog URLs will be different even when the underlying page is the same.
- Also, if canonicalization isn’t implemented properly, it may cost you some Google juice as external websites may link to your country-specific pages.
- Some users have reported a dip in Google AdSense earnings when pages are served through country-specific domains.
Go to your blog inside the Dashboard and choose Template. Then click the “Edit HTML” button followed by “Proceed.” Next, copy-paste the following code into the template after the <head> tag.
Click the Save Template button and now your Blogger will always serve with the blogspot.com URL.
