Status 503 - Servlet NewFrontend is currently unavailable

A few months ago, we would be getting Error 500. Now, it's Status 503.

HTTP Status 503 - Servlet NewFrontend is currently unavailable

Type: Status report

Message: Servlet NewFrontend is currently unavailable

Description: The requested service (Servlet NewFrontend is currently unavailable) is not currently available.


The solution is the same as previously - Clear your Blogger cookie.

At any time, the individual Blogger server, thru which you are accessing your blog, may become extremely busy, or may go off line for some, unexplained, reason. This is an unfortunate reality in the server world.

By clearing your Blogger cookies, you can force Blogger to "randomly" assign you to another server. Sometimes, you may get the same server back; other times, you may be assigned to yet another broken server. So you might have to try clearing your Blogger cookies repeatedly.

If the problem is with a cluster of servers, or if you're reassigned the same server as before, you may continue to get the same error. Keep trying, until you are "randomly" assigned a working server.

Patience and persistence.

Thank you, Chuck.

I am sometimes kind of stupid about computer things and it's good to know there's someone who knows the real fixes. Clearing the cookies (something I should probably do often anyway) fixed my inability to log in.). Cool.

Custom Domain Migration - Managing The Traffic

Your blog depends upon traffic for its success.

Anything that affects the traffic to your blog, such as any change in the URL, affects the success of your blog. Publishing the blog to a custom domain, like renaming the blog, will affect traffic to your blog. The effects of the change will vary from blog to blog, because of the different traffic to every different blog.Followers. People who find your blog because of recommendations by other people.Search engines. Robotic processes which methodically surf your blog, and provide dynamic indexing to people who search for information.Subscribers. People who read your content from their newsfeed reader, such as the dashboard Reading List.Viewers.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
