How To Automatically Redirect A Blogger Blog To Another URL
There are a number of reasons you may want to automatically send visitors to your blog to another URL or from one blog to another. For example if you moved your blog, if you had two blogs and wanted to focus one just one and cover both topics. Automatically directing visitors to another URL is actually quiet easy and only requires a snippet of code added to the top of the template. In this post i will show you the code needed to automatically Redirect a Blog to any other URL.
Firstly i should mention some people don’t like to be redirected and you should only direct to a site with similar content. If you redirect people to sales pages, sites with adult content or anywhere the user is uncomfortable with it will put your Blogger account in jeopardy. For this reason the code i have in this post can be set to Redirect in an amount of time set by you. So you can set the code to redirect after 5 seconds and place a message at the top of the blog telling visitors they will be redirected.
With that in mind i have created a test blog that will direct to Google. Com so you can see how it works. Follow the link and wait 5 seconds for the redirect.
Step 1. In Your (New Design) Blogger Dashboard Click The Drop Down Menu For Your Blog > Choose Template > Then Edit Html > Now Proceed > Tick The Expand Widget Templates Box as shown in the video Below :
Step 2. Find the following piece of code in your blogs Html : (It’s Near The Very Top)
Step 3. Copy And Paste The Following Code Directly Below / Under <head>
1. Replace http://www.YOUR-URL.com/ In Blue With The URL You Want To Forward To. 2. The Number 5 In Red Sets The Amount Of Seconds Before The User Is Redirected Change This To Suit.
Step 4. Save your template and your blog will now redirect after the time you set.Once again remember don’t use this to send people to sites unrelated or with spam as your entire Blogger Account may be effected.
If you give at least 5 seconds and add a clear message at the top of the blog there should be no trouble.Make sure to check out more of our Blogger Help Posts
