Somehow my blog is reachable from a blogspot.com.au and blogspot.co.uk domain as well. I guess this works with every possible domain extension. Maybe, people at Blogger are playing with something, or this might be a feature we didn't know about. :))

Thanks CK for responding.Smile

So I am not alone. But my blog is not accessible through .au or .uk. Only .ru.Smile

May be I was a rumanian in my previous life Tongue out

That is Google, we will not know about Google in detail but they would track us easily as per their process and convenient. BTW, read as below.

When somebody visits our blog (let's say Russian) which has English posts then they wanted to read it in "Russian language" (Non-English) via translation option (which auto-populates for them) then our domain name remain same except last extension (that changes per their country), dear. Cool

Website translation is something different. That has nothing to do with what we are discussing here.

I guess it's the same for everyone who has a blogger blog. The blogspot url by default automatically takes all co-domains as per the countries .au, .ru, .ca etc in addition to the .com. I have been noticing this since 2006 or so, because when you typexyz.blogspot.com, it will automatically make it xyz.blogspot.in. Nothing to worry about.

Thànks Amit. And thanks all.Smile

Relieved to find that KGB has not been cloning my blog.Laughing
