Google has recently taken one more step ahead that would officially allow Google to migrate its official blogs from Blogspot.com to googleblog.com.
Google’s Webmaster Trend Analysts, John Mueller recently confirmed users that it soon will migrate all of the official posts from blogspot.com domain to a more official domain name called googleblog.com. The main motive of this transition from blogspot.com to googleppost.com is to make a user understand that these blogs belong to the official use and Google independently will manage and operated such BlogSpot’s.
The implementation of this service started with the Google Webmaster Blog. You can easily find this blog by visiting https://webmasters.googleblog.com/ and if someone ignorant of this migration happens to go to official blog posts through original blogspot.com, they will automatically be directed to googleblog.com following 301 redirect terms.
Not only have this, Google started making plans to migrate all of the official blogs and blogs from other categories to googlepost.com in the coming months.
Many users are worried if their bookmarks and links will still remain or not.
To this, John Mueller answered saying that no doubt, your previous domain will be migrated to the new one but when you enter the older domain name, you will be redirected to the new domain address and your bookmarks and links would still remain and even continue to work. But to make it clear from the beginning, Mr. Muller further added that RSS feeds and comment will not be redirected so you will have to resubscribe them separately.
Many SEO experts are eagerly waiting for this migration and they are desperate to see the effects of this migration on SEOs.
This has simplified the way official posts were seen earlier and now it is quite easy to view official blog posts on Google. Now Google has started taking further steps in the direction to bring all official and other posts under the domain name of Googleblog.com from blogspot.com domain.
Some people were really confused about whether a particular blog post is official or not and all clarifications will be given by the Googleblog. This new change has surprised everyone and the users are happy to accept it as a revolutionary idea from Google.
John Mueller jokingly said its high time that they should something that can give their users migration tips as well.
The most prominent side-effect of this migration that most of the Google’s team thinks is that all Google+ comments will set to reset mode once this migration happens. So, if any comment that was previously posted on the Google Blogspot domain was very important, will be lost. There is no alternative to save those comments until now. Although no time limit has been fixed so far for this migration and the change would happen “over time”.
In the case, you have saved bookmarks and links of your previous URL, and then they will continue to exist and would automatically be redirected to the latest Googleblog.com domain.
Any change in the already existing system takes time but believe us it is for better.
