Hope Springs Eternal

Some confirmed spammers aren't giving up, willingly. Even after I deliver the (so it seems, to us) final verdict
Sorry, your blog will not be restored. It was recently confirmed as spam.
we get the reply
I am getting a message on my dashboard saying
If you are a real human being please enter the CAPTCHA, and we will take a look at your blog. Since you are a real human reading this blog, your blog is probably not spam.
So I have submitted my review and appeal, again.
Unfortunately, this is false hope.

Apparently, there is no dashboard code to accept the final verdict from the third strike review, such that the dashboard will cease displaying a blog that has been manually examined, by real humans - and for the last time, determined to contain spam.

This is yet another case of the left hand (the Blogger Support spam confirmation process) not letting the right hand (the Blogger dashboard display wizard) know what it's doing.

Regardless, the blog, once confirmed as spam, is gone. If it was spam yesterday, and it's spam today, it will be spam tomorrow. The Blogger spam confirmation team isn't going to reverse their opinion. Their review, once delivered, is final.

It's gone. Start over, if you wish. Alternately, find another way to occupy your 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.
