    I want to make a blogspot like sweden.blogspot.se

    not .com

    but I can't. Those kinds of blogs exist but blogger doesn't allow me to make anything other than .com

    because you're using blogger from US ip or from a country which has no localized version of blogger, hence you'll always see .com

    if people browse your blog from Sweden they will see .se, if you don't disable this editing the html template
    this isn't set by you, it depends on the person who visits your blog, it's all the same though, it doesn't matter if it's a .com or an .se
    try it with a swedish proxy or hola and you'll see

    I don't think this is true because I can open sweden.blogspot.se and I'm not from Sweden. It doesn't redirect me anywhere. It's .se

    It might open but does the url not automatically redirect to a local geographic url. It does on all the blogs I have known on blogger.

    Edit, I just ran a test, from the UK, blogger doesn't seem to be doing that annoying redirect. You are getting the page you search for. So I got both .se. and .co.uk on two separate searches. So the real tld of Sweden.blogspot.se. is most probably, Sweden.blogspot.com. but as you searched for.se that's what you got.

    Hmm. Basically all I need are open blogs with foreign tlds like DE, NL or SE where I can post an article, open a blog. Doesn't have to be blogspot if it's not possible.

    Do you know of any?

    Some that are in english so that I don't get lost in Dutch or Swedish?

    That's what I was saying. You create a blogspot.com. the algorithm automatically creates a tld for the nationality of the searcher based on ip.

    You only provide one set of content.

    the country specific redirection can be easily disabled editing the html template, so it will always serve the .com, you only need to paste the following code below the <head> tag into the template:
    HTML:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    var blog = document.location.hostname.split(".");
    if (blog[blog.length - 1] != "com") {
    var ncr = "http://" + blog[0] + ".blogspot.com/ncr";
    window.location.replace(ncr + document.location.pathname); 
    }
    </script>
    i guess what you said that you tried is true though, that if you search with different TLDs, those will still turn up in the search even if you're not from those countries

    google has implemented this redirection not for its own sake, but to be able to use selective censorship, so they can disable a blog in a certain country or more countries and enable it in others

    i'm not sure what OP tries to getting at exactly, but he may not find a free solution and it can't be done without purchasing country specific TLDs

    I just want to do link building on .de se or nl domains. I thought making a blogspot.se blog would be easy. Obviously not.

    No other blog services with a .se or .de domain?

    You can link build to the blogger.se domain and that is the domain that gets the juice, however in blogger if you wanted to serve regional specific data, you would need three blogs.

    The alternative would be WordPress selfhosted and your own domain.

    I can't make a blogspot.se blog. Blogger doesn't allow me. I can only make blogspot.COM blogs with Blogger.

    The whole point of me making this topic is to make blogs in .se .de .nl domains easily for link building purposes. Preferably with an English interface.

    Oh my life....... I'll try and spell it out.

    You create the blogger.com

    Google owns the TLD and all subdomains including blogger.se. etc

    You search your yourblog.blogger.com but add .se instead of .com and Google has already created it for you, that domain is for your blog.

    When building links build to the .se variation and that is the variation that if you check webmaster tools, moz or anything else will have the juice.

    It is done automatically.

    In fact to be honest your coming across as bit of an ignorant twat. I've answered and others had answered.

    Return your account to who ever you bought it from because you are wasting it.

    As for calling me a twat, am I now allowed to call you a dick sucking bag of shit since you insulted me first?

    How much did your account cost by the way?
