How to Prevent a specific Blogger Blog from Redirecting to Country Domains

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/02/09

The article How to Prevent your Blogger Blog from Redirecting to Country Domains describes to prevent the country redirect from within a blog itself.

But what about outside readers that want to see a specific blog on the .com link?

One of the reasons they want to do this is that Google does not index the country redirected sites, they only index the com site.

I had this while reading It kept redirecting to (as I’m based in Amsterdam; in Germany for instance it would redirect to

But a search would return nothing whereas would return the full index for the blog.

The trick is to browse the .com version of the blog with NCR once:

If you do that, Google forces a no-country redirect (just like you can do with browse to, and it remembers that choice too.

Note that BlogSpot has not done this country redirect for ever.

When http::// doesn’t start with any more: start it through (via: @feedly your news. delivered.)

Ask a question

I paused AdBlock: same thing. I don’t use HTTPSEverywhere or the other tools mentioned.

Solution: start using Since I prefer https anyway, I can live with that (: Read the rest of this entry »

Formatting your G+ posts (via: Ahmed Zeeshan – Google+ – Google+ | The Early Adopter’s Guide)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/03/07

Ever since I started G+, I was frustrated by the lack of markdown you can use.

Luckily, I found this post by Ahmed Zeeshan titled Google+ | The Early Adopter’s Guide Note.

It is not only the content of his post, but also that he made available the source template available, so it becomes much easier to start writing a G+ post.

Well done Ahmed!

Read his other posts too: highly recommended.

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/12/23

The SPAM that someone tried to post to my blog this night contained the full script text.

Probably something companies can use it to filter SPAM…
