Google Domains Provides Personal Support

One of the more promising features of Google Domains - besides the ability to access the Google Domains dashboard using a normal Google account - may be a recently discovered option.
I could not make my domain work, so I contacted Google Domains Support. They provided a simple adjustment, that actually worked!
Google Domains Support appears to be available, to anyone who purchases a domain, using Google Domains.

Google Domains Support is available, starting from a dashboard link.

Just login to Google Domains. At the bottom of the dashboard, you will see "Help".

Clicking on "Help", then "Support options", you have several options.

  • Help articles
  • Email us
  • Chat with us
  • Call us

And, we see some very promising advice.

The Google Domains Support Team is available every day:
  • For 24 hours by chat, email, and phone.


Click on "Help" at the bottom of the dashboard.




Click on "Support options".




"Thank you for using Google Domains!"

Initially, the most extensive advice, that has been described in Blogger Help Forum: Get Help with an Issue, was to

Change "ghs.google.com" to "ghs.googlehosted.com".

That simple suggestion, however, has worked for 2 blog owners that I know of.

Most recently, they have been providing immediate resolution for new domains that would go offline, sometime after being properly setup - because of an ICANN required domain lock.

We'll keep an eye on this new option, for the disappointed domain owner. And we'll continue to suggest that non USA residents wait patiently, for their chance.

Note that the Google Domains dashboard appears to be JavaScript based - so the blog owner will need cookies and scripts enabled, for "domains.google.com" - at a minimum.

Custom Domain Migration - Managing The Traffic

Your blog depends upon traffic for its success.

Anything that affects the traffic to your blog, such as any change in the URL, affects the success of your blog. Publishing the blog to a custom domain, like renaming the blog, will affect traffic to your blog. The effects of the change will vary from blog to blog, because of the different traffic to every different blog.Followers. People who find your blog because of recommendations by other people.Search engines. Robotic processes which methodically surf your blog, and provide dynamic indexing to people who search for information.Subscribers. People who read your content from their newsfeed reader, such as the dashboard Reading List.Viewers. People who read your content from their browser.No two blogs are the same - and no two blogs will have the same combinations of traffic sources.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
