    Ok, I'm a noob when it comes to things like this, so I need your help because Google does not give me any great info about it.

    I have a blogger blog which currently has over 200 visitors per day, and only around 4 clicks max per day. I played with the themes but it's just not what I'm looking for, I can get a much better CTR with a proper theme.

    So, my question:

    Will the blogger blog lose on rankings after I redirect it via their settings to a new domain?

    If yes, how to fix that?

    So what is the problem? The theme or the domain?

    If your'e problem is moving to a custom domain then I think there is no problem with it. You will still keep the traffic because blogger will automatically redirect yoursite.blogspot.com to www.yoursite.com so no worries. Then further suggestion maybe that you must redirect yoursite.com to www.yoursite.com, You can change all the settings there in your blogger dashboard.

    its very easy. Just put your domain in your blogger dashboard and forward your nameserver to your domain provider.

    I redirected a PR1 blogger blog to a custom domain four months ago. I've just checked and the blogger blog is still PR1.

    bes sure its a 301 redirection, and use webmaster tools from google to report this.
