Deleting Your Google Apps Account Will Not Fix Your Problems

A few Blogger blog owners, trying to resolve their custom domain publishing problem, may see Google Apps mentioned in the diagnosis procedures, and try the brute force way out - deleting the Apps account. Unfortunately, the Google Apps desktop, when (only when) it provides administrative domain control, simply gives the domain administrator the ability to recycle the domain settings.

The Google Apps desktop account does not contain any powers, or cause any problems, on its own.

There are no settings embedded in the Apps desktop account, that get reset when the Apps account is deleted. If you delete your Apps account, while you are in the process of diagnosing or resolving a custom domain publishing problem, you're going to have to go back and setup the account, again.

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.
