As many of you know, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE using Blogger software from Google for my blog.

Where else can you add a page and find it in Google search results in 2 minutes?

However, last month Blogger announced that they would no longer offer FTP publishing. HUGE bummer.

We found another solution, Wordpress. However, I was not real happy with the answer. After lots of testing, it just was not as good as Blogger. Sorry Wordpress lovers. But, Blogger really does kick some major butt getting in the search results super fast. Plus, Blogger has gotten us some great rankings.

So my mission was to find some type of solution to keep Blogger.

I found it!!

I am SO happy because I did NOT want to move!! Moving could mean possibly losing rankings. Moving could mean possibly losing posts. Moving could mean headaches.

Instead of moving, you can use the custom domains to have your blog pointed to blog.yoururl.com

It works and looks the same as if you are using the FTP but, it actually works better!
  • Google is hosting your blog so publishing is MUCH faster.
  • You still get all the benefits of having the subdomain blog at your URL
  • We get to keep Blogger!!
So here is the deal. If we have moved your blog to WordPress and you want to go back to Blogger, email us and we will do it for free. Everything is still in your Blogger account and we just have to turn it back on. We will need access to your Yahoo Hosting Account so we can set up the custom domain information Google needs.

If we have not moved your blog to WordPress yet and you want to make sure you can still use Blogger, you can order this service right now.

Here is what we do to make it work:
  • We make sure you have your blog set up in a subdomain. Like blog.yoururl.com
  • We create a CNAME record for your blog with the DNS
  • We change Blogger to stop FTP Publishing
  • We update Blogger to start using the Custom Domain
  • We wait for the domain servers to change over (this can take up to 3 days)
  • We test to make sure everything is working properly
  • You are all set and ready to go!
Now if you still want to move to WordPress, we will do that. However, I HIGHLY suggest keeping your blog at Blogger. The SEO benefits are just amazing!
