    How do you make it wait about 5 seconds before it re-directs, so that you can have the people read a message? Thanks 🙂

    Really thanks for the tips you provided.But i heard that "meta refresh" and other javascripts are harmful according to search engines.
    If i was using self hosted domains like wordpress,'d have done the better .htaccess redirect.It is really as simple as writing these silly codes

    redirect 301 /page001.html
    in the header.
    First "page001.html" is your current URL. "page002.html" is where you want to get redirected.

    What i need to clear that how to redirect a blog with\
    http://www.******* to

    bloggers needs to do that,because google takes these two urls as different domains.And you will get banned in no time

    please help someone??

      You can also register for webmaster tools through google. Prove you own both the www and the non-www site. You can then tell google which one is your preference and google will not penalize you for the differences.

    I was thinking of doing the same thing. i have three of same content and i was trying to redirect them to one url using META REFRESH and Javascript's Windows.location. but i read this at some place that you can use the meta refresh, as long as you only want your readers to see the target blog. The search engines won't see anything in the source blogs, nor will they follow the refresh to the target blog. None of your blogs will get any reputation. And eventually, all of your blogs will be locked, as spam. This is how spammers operate link farms.

    I am trying to make the new home page to an existing site, I have tried forwarding the domain to the blogger address. I have also tried redirecting the url to go to the blogger url. Neither has worked. When I tried forwarding, the rest of the site's pages can't be found (everything is forwarded from my host to the google host and the page direction gets messed up). When I tried redirect, it worked on Firefox but Safari wouldn't connect - it was 'stuck' while trying to load and redirect.

    I have looked everywhere trying different key words searches to find someone else with these same situation and how they have solved it. But to no avail. Do you have some guidance about the best way that I can make the blog the new homepage but keep the rest of the existing pages as is? Ideally everything would fallen within url and would not show a blogger url.

    Thank you. I look forward to your reply.

    Correction for 1.Log in to your dashboard--> layout- -> Edit HTML
    it should be 1. Log in to your dashboard--> Templates- -> Edit HTML. (for recent blogspot )
