URL of a blog redirected to a country-code top level domain

"Why Blogspot blogs get redirected to country spccific URLs (country-code top level domain) by Google
Recently you have noticed that the URL of a blog you're reading has been redirected to a country-code top level domain, For example, if you're in India and viewing [blogname].blogspot.com, you might be redirected [blogname].blogspot.in. A ccTLD, when it appears, corresponds with the country of the reader’s current location.
Google explains the reason why you are redirected to accTLD,
“Migrating to localized domains will allow us to continue promoting free expression and responsible publishing while providing greater flexibility in complying with valid removal requests pursuant to local law. By utilizing ccTLDs, content removals can be managed on a per country basis, which will limit their impact to the smallest number of readers. Content removed due to a specific country’s law will only be removed from the relevant ccTLD.”

To over come you can use NCR at the end of the url. NRC stands for “No Country Redirect” whether you’re in India, Brazil, Honduras, Germany, or anywhere. For example: http://[blogname].blogspot.com/ncr – always goes to the U.S. English blog"
