All Indian Blogspot Blogs changed to .in instead of .com

Domain name change blogger in com

All the Indian Blogspot Blogs have got a domain make over from Google, all the domains that were previously of the format myblog.blogspot.com are now myblog.blogspot.in.This comes as a shocker of a change as it could have wide implications on the SEO of a Blog as well as the traffic it may receive from other countries.

There has been no official note through Mail by Google as to why this change has occurred.If any one of you receive any official statement please comment below.

The Implications of this new domain change may vary from SEO, Page Rank Loss, Alexa Rank Loss, Old Link juice becoming useless(But seems to me that all the links are just being re-directed to .in and not .com, so backlinks may still remain useful).

Rest assured we will get some sort of a work around if at all the old backlinks to the .com type blogs will be upheld.This is a similar process when you move from one domain name to another.Since Google itself has done it, I feel there is not much need to worry.
