Deleted Blogs Can't Be Added To Google Webmaster Tools

Occasionally, we see confusion in Blogger Help Forum, expressed by bloggers who may have deleted a blog, then noted that the blog was still indexed by Google. Upon learning that Google Webmaster Tools lets us manage the search engine relationships for our blogs, the next question is something like
How do I verify my blog in Google Webmaster Tools? I deleted it, and can't edit the template!


Hoping that you still control the Blogger account that deleted the blog, you start by undeleting the blog. With the blog back on the dashboard, you can resume verifying ownership, in Google Webmaster Tools.

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.
