You Can't Take It With You

Recently in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I?, we've had direct contact with a few confirmed spammers.

These are people who have submitted to the noxious 4 step spam confirmation protocol, and who have been given the full benefit of the doubt.

When I come back with the unfortunate (to them) news
OK, all good things end some day.

Your blogs will, quite likely, not be unlocked. You might wish to review the Blogger and Google TOS.

the next post is frequently
OK, can Blogger unlock my blog so I can get the content, and move to another host?
or
Can I redirect my address to my new TypePad (WordPress, whateverspammyhostichose, ...) web site?
and the answer is
No, you cannot do that.

What you steal is not yours to keep, when you are caught.

Like ill gotten gains from robbing banks, you're not permitted to take your spoils of illegal act into your next life.

Content, search engine reputation, and traffic - all acquired while misusing Blogger and blogger resources - are not yours to keep, once you are confirmed as a spammer. You stole all of those resources from genuine and honest blog owners. You are not permitted to keep any assets, illegally acquired.

If the police arrest you for fraud, and break up your game of "3 Card Monte" - and you're found guilty of whatever law prohibits your "game", you're probably going to spend a few nights in jail. When they let you go, they are not going to give you back your playing cards - or the money that you stole. If you want to get back in business, you'll need a fresh pack of cards - and probably, you need to start over, in a different city.

It's time to start over.

Go away, please. You may, if you wish, start over - but the current life of yours is over. Maybe, find another source of income.

Just don't make the same mistakes, next time.

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.
