How to Stop Blogger Country Specific Redirection

Blogger is a vast blogging platform with millions of blogs hosted on it. So some time before Blogger introduced Country Specific Redirection. For example a visitor from India who visits your blog by entering the URL abc.blogspot.com will be redirected to abc.blogspot.in. Blogger introduced Country Specific URL to provide better support to local blogs. Today I am going to show you how you can stop this redirection.

Before that you must be wondering that why should you stop redirection. The answer is simple. After redirection is on, you lost your Alexa ranks and the Pagerank juice too. This is not healthy for your blogger blog. So to remove the Redirection follow the steps given below.



Adding the JS


We will need to add JavaScript which will stop redirection. So to add this script firstly go to Blog Title → Template → Edit HTML. Press Ctrl + F and search for <head> and paste the below given code just below it.

<script type='text/javascript'>
      var blog = document.location.hostname;
      var slug = document.location.pathname;
      var ctld = blog.substr(blog.lastIndexOf("."));
      if (ctld != ".com") {
        var ncr = "http://" + blog.substr(0, blog.indexOf("."));
        ncr += ".blogspot.com/ncr" + slug;
        window.location.replace(ncr);
      }
    </script>

After adding the code save the template.

You are done now. Now whenever a person tries to visit your blog, inspite of being redirected he will be at the original blog URL.
