Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Blogger a while back introduced Pages which allows for single web pages outside of the main blog. Which is great for 'About Me' pages and the like.

My blog is hosted on its own domain, and I want to know how I can map certain subdomains to specific pages.

For example instead of

http://www.example.com/p/contact.html

I want it to go to

http://contact.example.com

In your domain registrar, you can add as many sub-domains as you want.

But in Blogger, each Blog (ie combination of Posts and Pages) can only be pointed to one URL (ie to either example.com OR contact.example.com)

What you could do it set up a 2nd blog, which has exactly the same design as the first one, and set its "home page" to the contents-page content. (Don't give it any other posts.) Then redirect this 2nd blog to contact.example.com.

Two disadvantages:

  • You now have two blogs to keep "in synch" if you ever do design changes in future.
  • The home-page redirect option doesn't work for mobile viewes if you have a mobile template enabled. (so it may or may not be an issue for you)

So if you're doing this just for the "SEO benefits", I'm not sure that it would be worth the effort.

Sure you can do so now with your Blogger account if you already have a custom domain name for your Blogspot account. You can add as many subdomains as you want.

Perhaps you can enlighten us by showing/telling how to do that? –  Jacob Jan Tuinstra Jan 24 '13 at 11:36

I'm not sure if that can be done from blogger.. but you can do something like this:

I have a sub-domain in my website http://html.comcal.org which redirect to a Google Calendar. That can be done from your domain panel..
