My Blog Is NOT Spam #3

The Blogger war against spam blogs continues, and innocent Bloggers continue to be caught in the cross-fire.

But finally Blogger is at least giving us a hint what's going on, and offering suggestions on how to deal with the situation. There are two possibilities here, each with its own cause and remedy. Learn the difference.
  • Content Analysis. Your blog may look like spam, or maybe other Bloggers flagged you mistakenly. If there's a "?" beside the Captcha, you can fill out the form accessed from clicking there, and your blog will be whitelisted. Note the form that you fill out will require a working, Blogger friendly email address.
  • Posting Behaviour. If you make an excessive amount of posts in one day, you'll have to verify each time you post, for that day. This can't be whitelisted. You may, or may not, see a "?". If you do see a "?", it probably won't be clickable.

So the excessive posts trigger is bad news, since we aren't told what number is excessive (I'll bet that it's dynamic, based upon current trends), and it can't be whitelisted. But it does go away in 24 hours, if you moderate your posting activity.

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.

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.
