All posts tagged Geolocation

Before making this blog into Warptest.com it resided on Google’s blogger (or blogspot).

Google’s services work using Geolocation; just go to Google.com in your browser and see if it redirects to a domain for your country.

Google becomes image

The Problem:

When you are running your or a clients blog on Blogger you want actionable intelligence from your site analytics.

Having every visitor to your site redirected by Google Geolocation or Geodomaining can turn your analytics into a mess.

The Solution:

If you want to bypass this there is a relatively simple solution as I shared with some friends who were dealing with this and discussing it on Twitter.

If you were sharing your blog URL as:

http://yourblogname.blogspot.com then instead share http://yourblogname.blogspot.com/ncr

Where the /ncr = No Country Redirect

This is a relatively easy fix and should see your analytics back as useful again in no time at all.

I haven’t discovered any downside to this. If you know of any I would love to hear about it.
