BlogSpot Connectivity In India

This week, numerous bloggers in India are reporting inability to access blogs published to BlogSpot.

We have a problem rollup in Blogger Help Forum, where the problem is being explored. You may find it useful to use a proxy server, to get the most useful advice, if you are experiencing this problem.

The problem has apparently been active for several days. This time yesterday, it appeared that the problem was centered around customers of AirTel India; today, we see customers of AirTel and other services reporting this problem.

If you are located in India - or you are getting reports from blog readers in India - and you (or your readers) are experiencing any difficulty accessing any Blogger or Google services, please provide details, in the rollup discussion.
  • Geographic location - City and Country, please, where the problem is being observed.
  • The name of the ISP providing connectivity, to the computers with the problem.
  • Please verify the scope of the outage, using my standard 5 link connectivity test.
If you're able to provide details about the outage, you can help Blogger Engineers to focus on the problem - and not on speculations.

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.
