Blogger Blog Redirection - Two ways.

Search preference redirect option allows you to redirect from one page of your blog to another page of your blog. But this article will help you knowing redirection of whole blog to another blog.

There are two ways of redirection,
  1. Redirecting Visually 
  2. HTML Redirect 

1) Redirecting visually :- [Recommended]
  1. Go to Dashboard > Layouts 
  2. Click on Add a gadget 
  3. Scroll down and click on HTML/Javascript gadget 
  4. In the appearing box, make an announcement like below,
    This blog has been moved. Visitors are asked to redirect <a href="URL of your Second blog">here</a>.
  5. Save it. You are done.
The advantage of this kind of traffic redirection is that, the blog visitors will now know what is the new URL and in fact they'd be aware that the blog has been moved.

2) HTML Redirect :- [Not much effective]
  1. Go to Dashboard > Template > Edit HTML
  2. Press Ctrl + F and find </head>
  3. Above head </head> paste the following code,
    <meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="0;url=URL of the blog you want to redirect">
  4. Now replace URL of the blog you want to redirect with the actual URL of the blog you want to redirect.
  5. Save template.
  6. You are done.

Blogger HTTPS for custom domain and Cloudflare

In BHF, there was a recent issue related to cloudflare where the browser screams the site is a phishing site. So I thought of writing up how does a service like cloudflare affect your blogger blog.

What is Cloudflare?

Well we have that written all over Wikipedia. Let's go on with why Blogger users look for Cloudflare.
Anciently Blogger users used cloudflare for one simple reason. HTTPS for custom domains.

So what happens when you introduce cloudflare into your domain?
DNS Redirect.
Your custom domain will be configured with the proxy info provided by cloudflare and when the request is hit, DNS redirect happens.
DNS redirect is bad for the site's health. A number of reasons, but the most important is that some browsers, when it detects a DNS redirection, it thinks that it is a phishing site.

What is a DNS redirect?

I am trying to explain this in easy terms. I'll try not to be too technical. When a custom domain URL is hit, usually the domain requests go to Name servers from w…
