Spam Blogs - Not

I suspect that spam blogs, and blogs incorrectly identified as spam blogs, will be a problem forever. Just as spam, and email incorrectly identified as spam, will be a problem forever.

It doesn't look like there's any current and consistent problem right now though, at least one that's totally up to Blogger to resolve.

But this blog isn't going to go away. Even with no active problem, the material here is still relevant to Bloggers. And I sure as heck won't delete this.

EDIT: I wrote the above when I was suffering from an attack of optimism. See Open Blogger Issues, for new problems popping up.

Does anybody speak for Blogger?

NOTE: If your blog has been falsely flagged, and you are suffering the pain of the word verification puzzle (aka the Captcha), you can get this resolved. Just do NOT waste time with the Blogger Help Form.

There is a special link right next to the Captcha.
My blog is not spam


Click on the link. THIS procedure is quite painless, and much faster than waiting for general assistance. I cannot describe the form, or the procedure, in any detail, as I cannot reproduce the problem. My blog was falsely flagged, it was resolved, and hopefully will never be flagged again.


NOTE 2: If your blog was completely deleted by a Blogger anti-splog bot, you won't be getting the captcha to solve when publishing. You won't be getting anything at all, even.

If your blog just disappeared, and doesn't exist at all, setup a stub. Immediately.

Then, notify Blogger Support. And be sure to reply to the botmail!

What's The URL Of My Blog?

We see the plea for help, periodically I need the URL of my blog, so I can give it to my friends. Help! Who's buried in Grant's Tomb, after all? No Chuck, be polite. OK, OK. The title of this blog is "The Real Blogger Status", and the title of this post is "What's The URL Of My Blog?".

What Is "ghs.google.com" vs. "ghs.googlehosted.com"?

With Google Domains registered custom domains becoming more normal, we are seeing one odd attention to detail, expressed as confusion in Blogger Help Forum: Learn More About Blogger . My website uses "ghs.google.com" - am I supposed to use "ghs.googlehosted.com", instead? It's good to be attentive to detail, particularly with custom domain publishing . This is one detail that may not require immediate attention, however.
