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!

Spain has certainly emerged as one of the top tourist destinations around the world. Millions around the world plan holiday trips and vacations across various cities and counties in Spain. However, the biggest challenge while traveling abroad is staying connected. Most tourist
s find it hard to stay connected with their family members, relatives and friends back in the home country because they are not really sure about which networks they should buy and what kind of service they should choose.
