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.

DWI - Not all the time "Authoritative" helps

We already saw the common issues when custom domain is involved where we saw a tool called DWI - Dig Web Interface which will help us get DNS records of a particular domain.
