Blog Owners Seeing "502 Server Error" When Trying To Access Their Dashboard

Recently, we've been seeing a few reports from blog owners, who are unable to access their dashboards
I can view my blog, but I cannot see, or get to my dashboard. It loads forever and then tells me there is a 502 Server Error.
or
When logged in to Blogger, I cannot access www.blogger.com and my dashboard.

This is not a complete outage, and no affinity is known. We have a Rollup Discussion in Blogger Help Forum: Something Is Broken, where we are soliciting details from people affected.

If you are seeing this error, please help us to help Blogger Support, and provide some details.
  • URL of the blog.
  • Location (city, province / state, country).
  • ISP providing connectivity.
  • How severe is the problem? Is it a total, or intermittent, outage?
  • When was the problem first observed? When was the problem last not observed?
Your details about your experience with this problem may provide key diagnostic clues, so be as complete and precise as possible.


If you are trying to access a specific utility for a known blog, you can possibly bypass the dashboard, until this problem is fixed.

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.
