    I have a blog in blogger.com , usually like xya.blogspot.com

    It's getting traffic and I am thinking to move it to a domain. My question is that the blog pages are already ranking, Will there be any effect in the ranking if I put up a domain in that blog? Obviously it will be a 301 redirect.

    I will be using this option that is already present in the blogger site (check the attachment). Suggest me how to proceed. I am new to blogger, have used wordpress only.

    I don't want to transfer it to wordpress... I just want to replace the xyz.blogspot.com to xyz.com.

    This will affect the rankings but with a domain it will look more professional. otherwise, Blogger blogs are great for ranking.

    Yes definitely that is the page where you will enter your own domain if you want to redirect your xyz.blogspot.com to xyz.com. :)

    It is going to effect your rankings. That is a certainty. Redirect your backlinks (or anything pointing to xyz.blogspot.com to xyz.com), and you will not be hit as hard.

    Yeah, Blogger has a 301 redirection to them already the xyz.blogspot.com will be allotted to you only just when traffic will come it will be transferred to xyz.com.

    I don't think you might see any changes in Ranking.

    I was thinking the same as it will be doing a 301, so I guess It shouldn't be getting any ranking changes. Thanks for the suggestions. More suggestions are welcomed. :)
