Differentiate Blogs within your Typepad Account with Custom Domains

Books-education-school-literature-51342Do you have multiple blogs in your Typepad account that cover different subjects? If so, a great way to differentiate the blogs is to map a custom domain to each one. This is easy to do and allows you to manage all your blogs from the same Typepad account.

When you create a Typepad account, you choose a typepad.com or blogs.com subdomain, and each blog in the account will use the same subdomain. For example:

http://example.typepad.com/apples/
http://example.typepad.com/oranges/
http://example.typepad.com/pears/

Now, you can register and map a custom domain to each blog which shows visitors the blogs are separate. Continuing with the above example addresses:

Map applesforalex.com to http://example.typepad.com/apples/ to change the address to:
http://www.applesforalex.com/
Map orangesforkara.com to http://example.typepad.com/oranges/ to change the address to:
http://www.orangesforkara.com/
Map pearsformaggie.com to http://example.typepad.com/pears/ to change the address to:
http://www.pearsformaggie.com/

Visitors to your site will only see the custom domain, and search engines will index the pages of your site using the custom domain.
