The Blog Content Warning May Not Be Voluntary, In All Cases

The "Content Warning" advisory page, appearing ahead of blogs with questionable content, protects the casual blog surfer from viewing content which may be objectionable to some readers. It's presence on any given blog is supposedly the result of voluntary action by a blog owner, who can set "Adult Content?" to "Yes", at his / her discretion.

The presence of the advisory page, supposedly has slight effect upon prospective readers of the blog.
  • Prospective readers must read the notice, and decide whether they wish to view possibly gratuitous content, and that after they click through the notice.
  • The blog, when listed in a search hit list, will show the text of the content warning, in place of the blog description and post extract.


Recent claims by some readers make it appear that this setting may be, in some cases, not set voluntarily, and that it has additional consequences. The warning page also seems to interfere with the ownership verification process, in Google Webmaster Tools.

Thank you for your site and information. I just used your guide to set up my custom domain, with the help of tech support at geohost.ca. I could not have done it without your site though. I sent them the page as reference and they set it up on their side so all I had to do tonight when I got home from work was type in the domain on Blogger itself. Couldn't have been simpler! Wanted to leave you a thank you note. Thank you!

Hello Nitecruzr, I've still problems and I'm not able to solve them. I did send another message in the Google Help Group. Thanks.

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.
