This may be news to many of you Google bloggers that Google has been redirecting your blogpost blog to different urls (web address) based on your country. For eg: If a visitor is accessing this blog from india, the url will have blogspot.in, and if you are accessing this blog from United Kingdom, then it is redirected to blogspot.uk. Currently this is applicable to 15 countries and it is said that this url redirection is to take care of content censorship in case if the government of these countries come up with content censorship for blogs. ok, this is my understand. Amit Agarwal has written a great article on why Google is redirecting Blogger blogs.
I have often contemplated taking up a domain for this blog, but some how I have postponed that big step for some other time. A look into my website traffic maintained by statcounter told me that my blog traffic stats have gone hay-ware due to this url redirection. Suddenly the count of hits on posts get divided into different country specific urls. Somehow I believe that complicates things for the time. So what do I do? I found this useful article on Amit's website on Prevent your Blogger Blog from Redirecting to Country-Specific URLs. It was so easy to implement and took barely 5 minutes. Now I am waiting to see my blog traffic go back to normal.
