Questions About Moving A Blogger Blog To Hosted Site
Posted 08 December 2008 - 06:13 PM
for a client that already has a blog hosted on blogspot, and an ecommerce site on a separate domain, would it be advantageous to the ecommerce (main) site to move the blog so that it is hosted on the domain (i.e. moving it from blahblah.blogspot.com to blablah.com/blog) ?? what would be some of the repercussions either way?
In general i thought it was better to have the blog on a subdirectory of the main site so that all content updates are under the same domain.
However, this client has some search listings in searches for some of their products where the main site AND the blogspot blog are coming up, which shows the advantage of the opposite of my thought above.. (I don't currently have any traffic data for either.)
If we did move the blog, would current search results be negatively affected? I tested and I see that blogspot automatically adds a 301 redirect, but when i do a redirect check, it says it's redirected from "blahblah.blogspot.com" to "blahblah.blogspot.com" so i don't think it's a REAL redirect to blahblah.com/blog that would pass value from an SEO perspective.
Thanks for any input!

Thanks a lot for your reply Jill. Have you experienced this or heard of it happening to anyone with a blogspot hosted blog?
Also, if it's still a blogger blog, but hosted elsewhere, can they still remove it anytime they want?

They could remove your account, but if everything is on your own server, they can't touch that.

Is this advice limited to blogs on blogspot, or should people with blogs on wordpress consider moving them also.
