How to Stop Blogger Country Level Redirect?

The redirection on Blogger country specific URL is technically called as country code top-level domain (ccTLD ). This top-level domain is reserved for respective countries and when the user of specific country opens, domain for that country is opened! But it decrease the page rank as well as Alexa Rank! So to grab more users from Google, we need to make our blog, a .com blog only!



How to stop redirecting the URLs?
You can always view the .com part of any blogspot using /ncr with the URL as shown below:
Normal URL without /ncr >>> http://analytics.blogspot.com/   (This will redirect to country specific URL)
With /ncr >> http://analytics.blogspot.com/ncr 




Disabling Country Specific URL Redirection by Implementing /ncr via Script:

Step 1: Go to Blogger Dashboard > Click Blog > Click "Template" > Edit HTML

Step 2: Search </head>


And paste the code before </head>



Step 3: Save the template. You are done! :-)

Now, your blogspot.com domain will not redirect to country level domain. We have installed this small and simple script into the template to stop the redirection successfully.


FOR DYNAMIC BLOGGER THEME, YOU NEED TO ADD THIS TO DYNAMICVIEWS.js file and then add below sidebar.js in your template!
