My Blog Is NOT Spam #3

The Blogger war against spam blogs continues, and innocent Bloggers continue to be caught in the cross-fire.

But finally Blogger is at least giving us a hint what's going on, and offering suggestions on how to deal with the situation. There are two possibilities here, each with its own cause and remedy. Learn the difference.
  • Content Analysis. Your blog may look like spam, or maybe other Bloggers flagged you mistakenly. If there's a "?" beside the Captcha, you can fill out the form accessed from clicking there, and your blog will be whitelisted. Note the form that you fill out will require a working, Blogger friendly email address.
  • Posting Behaviour. If you make an excessive amount of posts in one day, you'll have to verify each time you post, for that day. This can't be whitelisted. You may, or may not, see a "?". If you do see a "?", it probably won't be clickable.

So the excessive posts trigger is bad news, since we aren't told what number is excessive (I'll bet that it's dynamic, based upon current trends), and it can't be whitelisted. But it does go away in 24 hours, if you moderate your posting activity.

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.

Free Domain Registration By "UNONIC" Is Fraudulent

Blogger blog owners, like everybody else, like to save money.

Some blog owners prefer to save money when registering a custom domain, for their blogs. We've seen several free domain registration services, providing what is claimed to be a two level Top Level Domain "co.xx" (where "xx" == various country codes).

The latest in this ongoing story appears to be "net.tf" - and 13 other "top level domains".There is also an additional free service offering third-level .tf domains, under the name United Names Organisation. They occupy 14 second-level domains, including .eu.tf, .us.tf, .net.tf, and .edu.tf. They are run by the same company as smartdots.com, and are given away as URL redirections.
