    I guess you want to map the Domain to blogspot. Redirecting aka Forwarding is completely different from Domain Mapping.

    Follow this article from Godaddy to setup your DNS records.

    You will have to do domain forwarding from your godaddy account. Log in to your godaddy account. then click on domains, click on the domain which you have to forwards. THen add the new forward address which is your .blogspot address.

    No i want to do the opposite. I mean i have a blog on Pinterest it was registered with the name xyz.info, and i had a good audience for it. Unfortunately adsense blocked it and still had over 1.5k unique views per day so i changed it back to .blogspot.com and put ads from another adsense. But as the traffic was on xyz.info so i want to redirect it to .blogspot.com so that i can use the traffic. Does anyone know how to do it?

    You had a Pinterest blog with the domain xyz.info? You sure?

    And yeah, if you want the domain to point to the blogspot blog, do what the guys above tell you to. I really don't follow what opposite you could mean? Like, point the blogspot one to the domain...?

    Not exactly xyz.info :D i was just trying to give an example. I made the blog two months ago on blogger i.e with .blogpsot.com, the free domain. After a week i bought a domain for it and redirected it to the new domain i.e xyz.info. I was using my adsense for it and all the links on Pinterest are with this xyz.info domain. Now as my adsense got banned for this site, i got an adsense from youtube and wanted to get revenue from it as i was getting almost 1.5k visits per day But the problem was that youtube doesnt serve ads on private domains so i had to change it back to .blogspot.com. But when i did it, the traffic became zero because all the traffic was coming from Pinterest and i had changed the domain. All the links on Pinterest are like xyz.info/abcdefghijk and i want to redirect it to xyz.blogspot.com/adcdefghijk. That is i wanted to redirect the traffic, which is coming from Pinterest with the xyz.info domain to blogspot.com domain. So i tried to do it from godaddy by using the forwarding option but it didnt work. So i am just wondering how can i do it?
