Improvements, And New Challenges, In the Spam Review / Appeal Process

This week, Blogger developed new spam review / appeal procedures, designed to make everybody's life (except, maybe, confirmed or self aware spammers) a bit simpler. Unfortunately, as we implement the new procedures in Blogger Help Forum: Something Is Broken, we are starting to see other problems, which may affect the success of the new procedures.

The review / appeal process, as before, starts with use of the dashboard "Review blog" / "Unlock blog" link. However, for several reasons, the necessary link is not always there. Many blog owners, needing help, report seeing
You are not yet an author of any blogs ...
when logging in, after seeing the latest version of the well known display.

Blog has been removed


Sorry, the blog at myblogwhichisnotspam.blogspot.com has been removed. This address is not available for new blogs.

Did you expect to see your blog here? See: 'I can't find my blog on the Web, where is it?'
Alternately, when seeing their dashboard, maybe with other, unclassified blogs displayed, not everybody will look for a "Show all" / "View all blogs" link.

And now, we see frustration building - and involving several possible scenarios, in various combinations.

So life is getting simpler - but maybe more complicated at the same time.

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.
