    Hey all. I know this is probably elementary to some of you, but to noobs this should be helpful.

    If you have been wondering why the old redirect code isn't working on blogger anymore, it's because blogger is not the old blogger anymore :) (I hope that made since).

    Here are the instructions on redirecting the new blogger to your affiliate url's or where ever you want.

    Go to blogger and log in. See your blogs listed there. The blog you want to redirect, click "Layout > Edit HTML" this will show the HTML code of your blogger template. Now, here is the code and where to place it in the HTML.

    Find <head> tag, should be near the top of the code, and paste this just after it:

    <meta name="robots" content="noindex" />
    <script type="text/javascript"><!--//--><![CDATA[//><!--
    var url = "YOUR REDIRECT URL GOES HERE"
    (document.images) ? location.replace(url) : location.href = url;
    //--><!]]></script>
    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=YOUR REDIRECT URL GOES HERE" />

    Now find the <body> tag, should be close to the bottom, and paste this code just after it:

    <p><a href="YOUR REDIRECT URL GOES HERE"></a>.</p>

    Replace the yellow text above with the URL you would like to redirect your blog to. Be sure to put your URL between the quotations.

    Here is an example of a redirected blogger blog h**p://angelinaortiz.blogspot.com in case you want to see it. Just replace the ** with tt. This blog does redirect to an adult website, just so you know.

    I hope this helps!

    the problem is the delay (blogger does that on purpose), the actual blogger blog shows for a few seconds and by then surfers get a feeling something is fishy and are -much- less likely to trust the page they were redirected too.

    It actually works perfectly for the niche I am using with it. For those few seconds of delay time I can display a large picture of a naked sexy woman to get my visitors attention. :)

    It will definately affect converstions for some niches, I agree.

    Yea, they flagged it. I just deleted it. I don't use blogger to redirect though so no worries on my end. I am not sure but blogger may flag all blogs that redirect now.

    Someone else may know about this than I do.
