My site is blocked!

Checking on some of my blogs display, removing some messy posts, this is what I found out in one of my entries.
  • Blogger's spam-prevention robots have detected that your blog has characteristics of a spam blog. (What's a spam blog?) Since you're an actual person reading this, your blog is probably not a spam blog. Automated spam detection is inherently fuzzy, and we sincerely apologize for this false positive.

Bluepanjeet is recommending askimet but I am trying to figure this one. It is Saturdays, one of the busiest days in the parish. So I will ask somebody to help me out on these things since they have already answers on this matter.

I have leaned also from other bloggers that they are also experiencing the same inconveniences. I Do not know much this blog will reappear and function as of before. I submit another report concerning this matter. The blog site have included in the main site announcing such irregularities. The process will take a lot longer because, this one has to be reviewed by their staff. But for the moment, I have to wait.

While waiting, I decided to learn what does spam blog means. According to blog spot, it is an inadvertent click to the "next" button blog of which the "flag" button is to be find adjacent of which it migth be accidentally click.

It is likely to be true. However, I would like to learn more on this matter so I looked at Wikipedia, and this is what it state:
  • sometimes referred to by the neologism splogs, are artificially created weblog sites which the author uses to promote affiliated websites or to increase the search engine rankings of associated sites. The purpose of a splog can be to increase the PageRank or backlink portfolio of affiliate websites, to artificially inflate paid ad impressions from visitors, and/or use the blog as a link outlet to get new sites indexed. Spam blogs are usually a type of scraper site, where content is often either Inauthentic Text or merely stolen (see blog scraping) from other websites. These blogs usually contain an high number of links to sites associated with the splog creator which are often disreputable or otherwise useless websites.
  • There is frequent confusion between the terms "splog" and "spam in blogs". Splogs are blogs where the articles are fake, and are only created for search engine spamming. To spam in blogs, conversely, is to include random comments on the blogs of innocent bystanders, in which spammers take advantage of a site's ability to allow visitors to post comments that may include links.
  • This is used often in conjunction with other spamming techniques including Sping.
My blog is full of links. I thought that I could post the links for other sites that offer the same content especially for catholic content. There is even a link for goverment controlled sites so that people es[ecially those who would like to go abroad may have amful informationthat they might not succumb to the illigal recruiters. I have also links to other sites that are new and does not have a substantial content for the moment. Well, I am just wondering because, it might happen again and the blogspot message contains that if this during the time my blog is blocked, it has two days of reactivation. It happens last friday and I have just find it out saturday night when I decided to arranged something. My question is what happened when I did not post for a week and I will not know if my blog was blocked. There is no way of knowing whether if was blocked unless you post and you will find that there is no option that it can published because it is blocked. I have not received not even an email warning me about this. Is this the way blogspot manage to delete unwanted blogs? Is it a kind of pressure that you have to blog everyday? I have to check my other blog. Do I need to copy the content of my blog to assure that even if it is deleted, I could post it back? Or it is better to migrate to other blog provider?

Sometimes, it is also one of the hassle of putting your content on a free host, there is no guarantee.

  1. father, I suggest you join us in wordpress.com. Its free and you can export there everything you've written here including the comments to wordpress. I used to have a blogspot blog that's why I still have an acoount where my picture shows, but I left my blogspot for wordpress because of the same difficulty I had, not to mention the limited features blogspot offers. it would be a big work moving out, but its all worth the hassle. Plus free akismet spam blocker. just a suggestion father. I don't want to be blamed in the near future... si bluepanjeet kasi eh, nag wordpress pa ako.. lol

    Pax et Bonum

  2. bluepanjeet,
    Thankyou for the invitation! My site is back. I am making another blog at wordpress. I have already an existing one. it was a crude one but it has more traffic than blogspot. It seems that their security measures have also hinder detection from search engines aside from google. When I tried to search some contnt of my sites. I could not find my site here at blogspot, while my site in wordpress was easily been visible. The traffic maybe because of the content. My site in wordpress is a collection of news item that concerns last election materials. However, I will continue it as a social blogs or a sort of bulletin board. Some people find a place to air their feeling of the last election outcome.

    It is in frjessie.wordpress.com

    There is also a person named alice in google who is a Filipina and a member of PBS. We already have a close contact there. If time will come that wordpress could offer more storage and blogspot will be more unstable, then I will migrate. I will keep this one for the moment. Let us see.
