Copy pasting comment from devilsworkshop guide:
Thanks for the excellent guide. Your support through comments section is great.
I have moved the blogspot.com domain to custom domain. Would you advise to wait 2,3 months until the major search engines update their index to the custom domain? If I move to WordPress immediately after moving to custom domain will the link juice be still passed?
I checked the redirect using
and it shows 301 redirect. So, thought that even if the indexes haven’t been updated, blogspot will continue to serve this 301 redirect even if I move to WP.
But following your guide, if I end up changing immediately to classic template / using redirection plugin, I think this automatic 301 redirect message from Blogger will be removed.
So, what's the best way to proceed?
