Ok, I've been setting up a blog lately for a project I am involved in. As far as I know the unique word which is my project name has never been used for any proper thing before, all google results for it are just typos where people meant to use a fairly rare english word but made several typos, and there are not many results even then. I won't say what the project is called here, the project is still a bit private for now, I'll just call the mis-spelt word "something". I am hoping that before long my blog should be on the first google page whenever anyone searches for my project's name. I have set up my main blog at a particular URL of the usual [quote]something.blogspot.com[\quote] form. I have also gone and got for myself another website [quote]something-RelevantKeyword.blogspot.com[\quote] to try to ensure that I have a good chance of being in the top search results for the project name and that someone doesn't domain squat me so to speak my taking [quote]something-RelevantKeyword.blogspot.com[\quote] for themselves. So I now have both those blog URLs, but I don't want to have to set up my templates and maintain my blog posts on both of them, plus that would make things really confusing when people started commenting on my blog posts, half the commenters who went to one site would never see the other half... So I could go and just put one post onto [quote]something-RelevantKeyword.blogspot.com[\quote] which says "Please follow my link to [quote]something.blogspot.com[\quote]" but that looks a bit ugly and unprofessional, so I'd like to set things up so anyone visiting [quote]something-RelevantKeyword.blogspot.com[\quote] gets automatically redirected to [quote]something.blogspot.com[\quote]. Is there any easy way to do this? I won both the blogs so it should be possible, and as far as I know one can put custom html and/or javascrpt onto a blogspot blog so I could perhaps go by that route if necessary, but as blogger has tools for giving your blog third party (.com, .org, .info ...) URLs I would assume you can also use those tools to cause redirects between your own blogs. Can anyone explain how this is done, or if it isn't possible suggest how I might right some html code or something to put on one blog to cause a redirection to my main blog? If all else fails is there a really fast way to copy across customised blogger formatting templates (I spent quite a while setting up different colours for every different type of text, background colours, spacings...)between by blogs and a quick way to make the content on [quote]something-RelevantKeyword.blogspot.com[\quote] a copy of the content on [quote]something.blogspot.com[\quote] without having to copy every post each time?
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.
