Bloggers who migrated from Blogger to WordPress are facing issues redirecting via the blogger mobile URL/template. The URL ends with m=1. lots of 404 errors are shown in Google webmaster tools.  The blogspot URL looks like http:/ .

Blogger 301 Redirect plugin Version 2.1 by ‘Sudipto‘ fixes this problem. Recently an update  was rolled out which made sure that the blogger mobile ULR (m=1) gets redirected to the correct WordPress post instead of the homepage or the 404 not found page.

Before the update rolled out, my webmaster tools displayed around 800+ not found errors and mostly due to the incorrect blogger mobile URL redirection (m=1) .
