Blogger Limits: Blog Ownership Count

Possibly as a way of emphasising Blogger as a personal, simple blogging platform, Blogger recently imposed a 100 blog limit on new blogs. This is a limit that has not yet been documented.
Number of Blogs: You can have as many blogs as you like on one account.


Apparently, the limit is against starting new blogs, not owning blogs. If you're like me, you'll note the limit when you try to Create a Blog.

D'ohh!



But this limit, like many others, can be bypassed. You can setup more than one Blogger account, create more blogs under multiple accounts, and make team memberships of the blogs created. Setting up and teaming multiple blogs, of course, will be a tedious activity if you are going to setup 100+ blogs at one time, so plan the process and allow lots of time. Using multiple browsers or computers is highly recommended.

Just creating 100+ blogs, if you publish to "xxxxxxx.blogspot.com", won't be easy - remember each blog will require an available and unique URL. If you publish to your own domain, you'll maybe control naming there.
Either way, tracking 100+ blogs won't be easy in any case. Take a look at your dashboard, if you have any substantial number of blogs, and imagine trying to manage over 100 blogs.

And note that currently, Blogger, in the latest effort to mitigate publishing of spam blog farms, is using CAPTCHA screening and / or SMS verification, to block automated blog creation. If you plan to create more than one or two blogs in the same day, be prepared.

I agree, the more blogs you have the more time you need to manage them.
I was wondering though if this "100 blogs limit" is just an error message and not true... I say that because I have 6 blogs on blogger but I got this message as well at some point! I think it had to do with what I was trying to do at the time (not setting up a new blog). What do you think?

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.
