How to redirect Blogger to a new domain using Meta tags?

This is a simple trick to redirect all blog posts (page by page) to a new website or wordpress. First of all you need to extract all blog post URLS from your old blog and the new one. You can use Xenu to extract links. Use a spreadsheet to match all old blog post urls and the new one, i used excel to achive that.

Paste this condtion after <head> in Widget template -> Edit HTML. Change Old blog post page to the link of old blog post and change New blog post page to the link of new blog post.

<b:if cond='data:blog.url == &quot;Old blog post page&quot;'>
<meta expr:content='&quot;0;url=New blog post page&quot;' http-equiv='refresh'/>
