Blogspot Redirect To Country Based URL (.com to .in in India)

Did you notice that while opening any blogger blogspot address like [blogname].blogspot.com it showing extremely different extensions like .in  or .com.au  or some else based on your country instead of .com like [blogname].blogspot.in or [blogname].blogspot.com.au ? 

Google has made changes in the URLs of the Blogspot blog. URL of the blog you are reading has been redirected to a country-code Top Level Domain called as 'ccTLD'. For example If you are viewing [blogname].blogspot.com from India You may get redirected to [blogname].blogspot.in .The redirecting URL is based on the country of the readers current IP address location.

When I visited my blog trickzcafe.blogspot.com today, it shows the URL as trickzcafe.blogspot.in I wonder how this happened ,that I have never applied for a new domain. You might see it as trickzcafe.blogspot.com.au if you visited from Australia, Not in all countries can view this change,but in coming months it can be seen in rest of the countries.

Why your blogspot.com blog address changed to blogspot.in (or other domain based on country)? Will the change of blogger blogspot url from blogspot.com to blogspot.in affect your blog?
Get the answer for these question from Google support page here is the link http://support.google.com/blogger/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=2402711

Don't worry blogger blog admins, there is no visible change in your blog other than the URL directing.But your alexa rank and google page rank will affected. If you have owned a custom domain it will not affects for you. Let's see changes will happen....
