Custom domain.

If you showing an error that means your CNAME and A records has not updated globally. You have to wait for some more time. In my case, it took only 10 minutes.

Once it is ready to work, Google will take care of the redirection part, and anyone opens your Blogspot blog address he/she will be redirected to your new custom domain.

You will not lose your traffic and link juice. It will also work for your internal pages.

Note: You have to check your custom domain redirect checkbox. Your website name is www.websitename.com but sometimes users do not type a www they will type only websitename.com on a search engine. Please check it and your site will be redirected to the www version.
