When you want that a blog post or blog page of your blog should transfer its traffic and google search ranking authority to a new URL where this content is shifted, then you need SEO Redirection.
As you are permanently moving your blog content under a new domain name, you need to tell Google about it, so that Google acknowledges the change and transfers the authority of your content to a new address and does not treat the same content at a new URL as plagiarised content and deny rankings.
You can inform this to Google by providing a 301 Redirect at the old address of the content.
301 Redirect tells Google that the content present at that location is permanently shifted to a new address.
The traffic is shifted permanently by Google instantly when it finds this redirect.
But the rankings transfer takes some time.
Normally you can easily create a 301 Redirect for a personal domain name you own.
But it seems next to impossible to do the same in the case when you don’t own the domain name as the case in blogger/blogspot naked domain.
Now I am going to share a method in which you can achieve this.
I have tried this method when I was shifting from blogger to my own domain name and I was successful in transferring the ranking of my popular blog posts to a new web address but I cannot guarantee you the same as this is dependent on google and varies on case basis.
Insert the code shown below just after the
<head> tag in the blogger template after replacing the generalized content to your own in the code below.
<b:if cond="’data:blog.url" =="“<http://your-blog-name.blogspot.com/YEAR/MONTH/BLOG-POST-SLUG.html>”‘"><meta content="’0;url=http://yoursite.com/NEW-BLOG-POST-SLUG.html’" http-equiv="’refresh’/"></b:if> <b:if cond="’data:blog.url" =="“<http://your-blog-name.blogspot.com/p/BLOG-PAGE-SLUG.html>”‘"><meta content="’0;url=http://yoursite.com/NEW-BLOG-PAGE-SLUG.html’" http-equiv="’refresh’/"></b:if> <b:if cond="’data:blog.url" =="“<http://your-blog-name.blogspot.com/>”‘"><meta content="’0;url=http://yoursite.com/’" http-equiv="’refresh’/"></b:if>
If you are fortunate enough, after a few days of doing this you can see your new URL in place of the old URL in google search.
