  1. umm hi. i just changed my blog name on blogger from spushtdaily.blogspot to spushtchats.blogspot .com the same way. but the old posts that link to each other with the old url does not automatically redirect itself to the new url and shows the msg:

    Blog has been removed
    Sorry, the blog at spushtdaily.blogspot .com has been removed. This address is not available for new blogs.
    Did you expect to see your blog here? See: ‘I can’t find my blog on the Web, where is it?’

    how do i make the urls automatically redirect?

    • It is not possible with blogger. Only in one case is possible if you use custom domain on your blog. Custom domain i.e. spushtchats .com. One simple thing is also possible to redirect spushtdaily.blogspot .com traffic to home page of spushtchats.blogspot .com through meta redirection. Here is meta redirection code put this code in your blogger template just below <head> : <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5;url=http://spushtchats.blogspot.com" />

  2. I have changed my blogspot to custom domain. However if I change the feed to comboupdate it gives a error. Can you help me with this?
