GoogleBlog Moved

I saw this on Search Engine Roundtable a day ago or so. Dunno why I didn’t post it before.

I was checking my referral logs for today and I noticed referrals from http://googleblog.blogspot.com/. I first thought, is this a copycat site of the original www.google.com/googleblog/, where the original Google Blog resided. But no, click on http://www.google.com/googleblog/ and it redirects you to http://googleblog.blogspot.com/. In addition, the URL being linked to from the About Google page (see left top) is http://googleblog.blogspot.com/. Not sure when that happened.

So finally, Google added a “What We’re Reading” section. Of course, I am honored to have this site included in the list. Glad you are reading. 🙂

And here’s what Eric from the GoogleBlog team had to say about it:

To make the Google Blog a bit easier to manage behind the scenes, we’re now publishing it to its new home at Blogspot: http://googleblog.blogspot.com/

Newsreader users shouldn’t have to re-subscribe; the Atom feed is being redirected to its new URL. We’ve also updated the design a bit, and added a blogroll. Let us know what you think.

Seems like a decent choice to me. Although I would have kept the original URL and just used the “Blogger” system. Whatever though.
