Blogger Isn't Responsible

for Blog*Spot being blocked by the Chinese Government.
I'm afraid this problem comes from the Chinese government - it blocks all Blog*Spot pages from being shown within the country. If you'd like to purchase a hosting service from another company, though, you'll be able to continue publishing through Blogger and you'll be able to see your blog. Sorry about this, but unfortunately, there's not much we can do about it.

From God's mouth, to your ears, folks. End of story.

I have Chinese friends who visit my blog so I checked Google on Chinese blocking Blogspot. The bulletin is dated March 2004. I know my friends have been to the blog in the last 3 months. So either the blocking is no longer in force or they have found ways around it. I'll email and check with them.

Thanks, Steve.

We'd appreciate any updates that you can provide. Maybe your friends know a good way around the block, and letting other Chinese know what we find out is a service that we can provide.

OK, Chuck, it's taken a while to hear back from my China contact.

He was blocked from my site the last month. Here's what he wrote:

"I couldn’t get on your blog for over a month, and I didn’t spare time to email you about that. I searched about that on the web and find some webs which offer Proxy Sever, by which I get on your blog at last. So the block really exists. The www-dot-wikipedia-dot-com has been blocked. And there are many comments on the internet about the block.
I don’t understand who want to know whether I do something special, and I am ok. We will talk more about that."

I think this is the proxy server he used:

MyJobNet.info

I think that should be enough, but it takes you to:

Hope that helps.

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. People who read your content from their browser.No two blogs are the same - and no two blogs will have the same combinations of traffic sources.

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.
