I am moving from a blogger-hosted subdomain (mybrand.blogger.com) to a new, non-blogger domain at www.mybrandnewsite-notonblogger.com.
We'll no longer be using Blogger for the CMS.
I understand Blogger has a tool that will let you 301 redirect a domain. But here is what I can't figure out:
1. Is there any way I could finagle page-by-page redirects from mybrand.blogger.com to www.mybrandnewsite-notonblogger.com?
2. If not, then can I at least be sure that if I use the 301 tool in blogger, that any pages that live under mybrand.blogger.com get 301d to the homepage of www.mybrandnewsite-notonblogger.com?
I've found some examples where people have kept the old blogger domain live, and have used cross-domain rel=canonical tags to point relevance to the new domain, along with meta refresh that redirects users. But meta refreshes seem a little shady, plus the client would prefer that the blogger domain is eventually "gone" because of branding purposes.
I really appreciate any feedback the experts in this forum could offer. Thanks so much.
