Blogger 301 Redirect And PageRank Transfer

A new friend of mine "Kevin" wrote a comment asking an interesting question, a question deserves a new post.

Hi there Wissam. I'm from Crovess Blog. You just approved my Entrecard ad which I wanna say a thank you.

Anyway I'm on Blogger too with a custom domain. I totally agreed with you in this post. After buying a domain for the blog, it seems that the traffic has increased, and apparently, my blog has been exposed not only on Google, but on some major search engines as well.

However, buying a domain name for the blog doesn't fix my PageRank, Alexa or Compete issue. I don't get a rank on any of them. Do you have any idea about this?

Would be very much appreciated if you could leave me a comment on my blog as well.

Stay in touched, thank you.

Kevin, you must know that Blogger will redirect your old traffic to your new domain automatically using a 301 redirect, and after a week or so all of your old URL's will get replaced with new ones under a domain, but it will never transfer your page rank.

If you lost your page rank like others in the last update, this is a new chance for you to start building it again, your new domain is comblitely something different then your old blog url, "Blogger is a part of Google, but blogger and Google Search are not charing databases".

here what Google said:

While we can't manually change your URL in our search results, there are steps you can take to make sure your transition is smooth.

First, you can redirect individuals to your new site. If your old URLs redirect to your new site using HTTP 301 (permanent) redirects, our crawler will discover the new URLs. For more information about 301 HTTP redirects, please see

Google listings are based in part on our ability to find you from links on other sites. To preserve your rank, you'll want to tell others who link to you of your change of address. One way to find a sampling of sites that link to yours is to perform a link search. To learn how, please visit Google Help : Search Features. To obtain a comprehensive list of the links that point to your page, perform a Google search on your URL. On the results page, select the "Find web pages that contain the term" link, and Google will provide you with webpages that mention your address.

I hope this clears what's in your mind.
start fresh, motivate your self and start building your page rank, personally I don't care about page rank, but some bloggers said it's important.

Hi again Wissam. Sorry for late respond. As usual, today I visit here to drop you EC and saw this post.

Thanks for stating solutions out. I'll try to get it fixed for my own good. PageRank does effect my earnings of 'write reviews for money' as the price I get is determined by my PageRank.

See you soon!

Tria Mera - 666 - The truth

Following is a reference to the movie white noise, what you see on this page is not my opinion, and I am not interested on this stuff, if you come here than you are probably searching after watching the movie or researching tria mera term, this is for educational purposes only.

The expression, Third Day, appears in several narratives in the Bible. (Occasionally, it is “three days.”) Some biblical interpreters have thought that some of these third day motifs have significance by signifying a certain divine principle, and a few interpreters have thought that they are cryptic in meaning. Why? Interestingly, these narratives record some of the most important events in the history of Israel. And surprisingly, except for the Bible’s mention of the third day, the seventh day, and its account of creation in Genesis 1, the Bible rarely mentions the other days of the week.
The Number of the Beast is described in the Book of Revelation 13:18. From the King James translation:[5]
Here is wisdom. L…

Restore Lost Squidoo Lenses After Migration to Hubpages

I didn't log into squidoo for ages and I had some good lenses that are really useful to people, now what happened is Squidoo is migrated into hubpages, and my account on squidoo was automatically migrated, I logged in to hubpages but my lenses from squidoo are not there??

well I got scared at first but don't worry, I figured out that my email on squidoo was the same I am using on hubpages, but in that case they don't merge all you wrote in squidoo and hubpages together, instead they create a new account for you, to avoid conflicts, I mean what if you have same article on both sites and it get's replaced with one another and you lost comments etc.
How they make an account? they use your name, and I will tell you how to find out your new username easily, simple.

First go to hubpages lost password page here, as seen on screenshot below check the "Newly transferred account from Squidoo" radio box.
