Why we use Redirection:-
Bloggers always want to buy their TLD(Top level Domain) but without enough income to purchase a domain, they work on free blogging services like Blogger.

In this tutorial, I will show how to transfer traffic of your old blog to new website or blog.
How to Redirect Visitors from a Blogspot blog to Another Blog:-
Step 1: Login to Blogspot account
Login to your Blogger account and then select you want to redirect.
Step 2: Reaching Location
To redirect blog, you need to edit Blogspot template. Go to Template>Edit HTML.
Step 3: Search
Click in the HTML Box and press (Ctrl+F) to show the search box. Search for <head> tag.
Step 4: Select Type of Redirection
There are three kinds if redirections can be made in Blogger.
1. Redirect everything to new Blog.
location.href = ‘http://NewBlog.blogspot.com‘;
Change the red line (http://NewBlogblogspot.com) with your new website or blog URL.
2. Specific URL
If you want to redirect particular URL, then use the following codes.
if(window.location.href == ‘http://OldBlog.blogspot.com ‘)
In the above code, the green line is the specific URL that you want to transfer, and the red line is a new blog link. You can also be able to add any URL Domain.
3. Setting Time of Redirection
<meta content=’5;url=http://NewBlog.blogspot.com’ http-equiv=’refresh’/>
In this code, 5 is the time of redirecting visitors to the new blog. I have managed 5 seconds, but you can change it. If you want to set 1min than replace 5 with 60.
Use any of the below code you want and paste it after the <head> tag.
Step 5: Save and Check
Save the template and check the changes. If you set custom time than wait for redirecting.
If you are migrating entirely to new Website than I suggest you to use the first find of redirecting code to transfer all traffic to new one but for one URL, use the second one.
