Redirect from non-www to www – Blogger
To solve the above issue, you have to make the following changes in your Blogger settings and DNS management settings
- First of all, Go to your Blogger Dashboard > click on settings > Scroll down to the “Publishing” section > in the publishing section> turn on “Redirect domain“.
- If your blog is still not redirecting from non-www (https://example.com) to www (https://www.example.com) then go through the following steps:.
If you have set up the Domain Forwarding in your DNS management settings just to redirect from non-www to www then remove it right now.
- Now check the DNS Records and look, if there is any ‘A’ record, Name (@), and value (Parked). As shown below in the picture.
If you find the above record then click on the Edit icon and delete this record. Refresh the page.
- Now check if you have added these 4 ‘A’ Records in the DNS records as shown in the picture below.
If you have not added the above shown ‘A’ records then you should add them immediately. If you don’t do it then your website will not be able to redirect from non-www to www.
You can read this article on how to set up a custom domain with Blogger very correctly.
Now check that, you have added the following two ‘CNAME‘ records in your ‘DNS records’ or not, Most probably you would have added these two CNAME records.
(Optional): Now one more very important thing you have to do that is, verify your Domain Property in Google Search Console, sometimes it is automatically added by Google. Read this article on how to add or verify Domain Property in Google Search Console.
After 10 – 20 minutes of setting up all these things. You will see that your site is now started to redirecting from non-www (https://example.com) to www (https://www.example.com). That means, now your site is ready to re-apply for AdSense.
But I will recommend that you should post 1 or 2 articles, then after 1 or 2 days, you should apply again for AdSense.
