Hello, thank you very muche for this GREAT tutorial.
i’ve got some problems pointing intuit domain to my blog too, in blogger they told me to add two CNAMEs to my Domain Name System (DNS) : www & rtdmjbfhno52
i already added www but the adresse ” gv-75uekesvda4lfuenthjtwzzge7kqqjme4er6weshwh7gty74nuna.domainverify.googlehosted.com ” is too long to be added in the ” Points to ” section, what should i do now ?

There is no excuse for this, Google nowadays verifying domains strongly and you have add the cname record provided by Google in your DNS record if it is long also.

Hi Daniyal Hasan,
This error is bcoz the intuit had found some misuse and they are stopping these kind of redirection from thier servers.
Usually bloggers after gain reputation they transfer their domain from intuit which in turn is a very big lose for them
I have a similar tutorial shared about blogger here

Regards Franklin
