In our Blogger seo guide we recommended you to link your Blogger blog to a custom domain. Search engines give high priority to top level domains like .com .net .org. That’s why recently we bought a domain from Godaddy and then linked our Blogspot blog to the new domain. In this post we will explain how to link Blogger blog to a custom domain.
Steps to link blogger blog to a Custom Domain
1. First you need to buy a custom domain.
2. Then you need to change the CNAME. Go to your domain or hosting site, login to your account. Click on the domain you purchased and then click on DNS. Next in the Name Server type ghs.google.com
3. Next we need to change A records. Enter www in Name field. Since blogger blog is hosted by google you need to enter google IP addresses. Under A record there will be a field called Value enter following google IPs and create 4 different A records and then save.
4. Lastly go to blogger dashboard, click on settings, now you can see Blog address under publish. Enter the url to which your Blogspot blog should be directed and then click on save. That’s it now your Blogspot blog should be redirected to new custom domain.
