As the Google have started redirecting the blogger blogs to country specific domain, many of blogger users are facing problems due to negative affect on Google juice (Bookmarked links, external links of your blogs) and social stats (like tweet countss, facebook shares and Google +1′s).
The country specific re-direction allows google to have more control on blogs management in different countries.

Available Solutions:

  • Use Custom Domains: The users who are using custom domain will not be affected, since their url structure will remain the same and it will not be redirected ( Refer this).
  • Adding ‘ncr’ slug to blog url: Adding a ‘ncr’ slug to your blog url stops the redirection and it shows the actual domain address.
For example opening http://abc.blogspot.com in India will open http://abc.blogspot.in,
however, if you open http://abc.blogspot.com/ncr in any country it will simply open the same url i.e. http://abc.blogspot.com
