I was surprised to see that Blogspot is marking some site as a Potential Spam Blog. I saw jun auza report about his http://philippineboardexamresults.blogspot.com/ being marked by Blogspot as potential spam blog. And what amazed me is that â€œJehzlau Conceptsâ€ is also one of the site being marked as potential spam blog. I don’t know what google is upto by doing this things. I have some blogs hosted at blogspot and they are all earning a passive income. That means it is earning everyday even I update it very seldom.
We will take a look at your blog and unlock it within four business days. Please note that if we do not hear from you within 20 days, we will remove your blog. If this blog does not belong to you, then you do not have to do anything. Any other blogs you may have will not be affected.
So what will be a preventive solution for this scenario I proposed the following :
- If you are just a new blog and you are thinking of earning thru your blog I suggest that you invest some amount for that blog and get your own domain and hosting company
- If you have already lots of post and you are afraid that this might happen to you I suggest you have back up your blogspot blog thru WordPress.com. But be sure your wordpress.com is set to block the Search Engine Crawler or set it so that only your specified viewer can view it. But why ? This is to prevent duplicate content.
- If you have made Suggestion # 2 be sure to back up your xml file in your hard disk by making an export of those file. So that you can use it if in case you want to get a new Self Hosted WordPress Blog. Remember you cannot earn from your wordpress.com account since this is in violation to their TOS.
- It is better to have your own domain name so that you can still control the URL when some problem exist.
Better to be preventive than to be sorry later on. BTW as of this writing I have made some back up of my Blogspot Blogs.. Still on going..
