Bad News for Free Blogger

Google suddenly redirected all Indian Bloggers in free Blogger hosting service from .com to .in. Say for example you have a blog in free blogger hosting named as:
http://yourblogname.blogspot.com
Now, Google redirects this address to
http://yourblogname.blogspot.in
Free Bloggers definitely do not like this idea. However, this is Google's new policy. Free bloggers must co-operate in this regard. Generally .in sites are limited to Indian visitors, so the main drawbacks of this policy is that the blogger may loose the considerable amount of traffic. My suggestion in this regard to all bloggers, why not you buy a custom domain name? It's cost only 10 dollar annually. Here is how to buy domain name from Godaddy.com
Attention Bloggers: Check the search engine installed at your blog. If it is not functioning, then you have to re-install it with your changed domain name.
