Why Your Blogger Blog was Deleted or Removed

Advertisements
There is no doubt that Blogger is a hassle free platform, which offers lots opportunities for beginners to start off their journey without hiring a developer for free. However, it also has quite a few limitations which probably make you think whether to use this free platform or to relay on a paid one like WordPress or etc. Due to the repeated violation of terms of service, Blogger team on the daily basis permanently disables or deletes thousands of sites without giving the publisher a second chance. Therefore, today in this article, we will pinpoints reasons that why your Blogger blog was disabled due to Spam?

Reasons Why Your Blogger Blog was deleted or disabled:


Spamming the Hell out of your Site:

Spam is a one word used for all kinds of illegal activities, which could result in deletion of not only your site but also your account. Some examples include, a website which was created to trigger traffic to your site through black hat methods or to boost up the search listing, posting prevent comments on out sites to dig more and more traffic to your website, scrapping content from other sources to generate revenue or to gain personal profits. 

Hosting Pirated Content:

Since, this is the only robust and free platform people often shows their smartness and tries to take over advantage of it by hosting pirated content on their site. Pirated content means a person who is providing paid software like Music videos, games, applications for free.  By spreading pirated content, not only your blog would be deleted but you might be jailed too. Therefore, stay away from hosting illegal content.  

Adult Content or Nudity: 

Hosting adult content is allowed on blogger which includes, images, videos which contains nudity or sexual activity. However, before you start an adult site make you sure you mark your site as “Adult” from your settings. Otherwise, your site might be deleted or compromised. There are few limitations while hosting adult content. You cannot place too many ads, nor can you link a porn site within the footer or anywhere else in your site.


Content Copyrights Violations:

Blogger has very strict copyright policies, and they take legal actions against all alleged copyright infringement. If you repeatedly copy others content and the original owner reported to Google DMCA then, your site might be deleted. In many cases, Google always gives a second chance. However, repeated violation might end up in deleted or terminating your site. 

Hate Speech or Targeting Others: 

Blogger is a place where people share their opinions and write about anything that they like. However, using hate speech or targeting anyone is prohibited. You can still criticize but do not cross the line by publishing hate speech. It means violence or targeting a certain community, race, religion, person or ethnicity. For example, do not write about a certain cast claiming that they are criminals, and they are violating your religion.

Accommodating Malware and Viruses: 

Do not create websites which gives birth to viruses and malware. Do not use pop ups, or such scripts which illegally attempt to install software without the permission of the users. This kind of activity is strictly forbidden, and it could cause your site to be deleted.


Some Other Types of violations:

  1. Child Safety: Make sure your content is safe for children. Do not post children pornographic because it is illegal, and you might be reported to higher authorities. 

  2. Violence: Do not give threats to other through your site. For example, do not post such articles which indirectly giving death threats, or targeting a group of people. 

  3. Crude Content: Do not post such content, which might cause other heart attacks. For example, posting close-up images of wounds, gunshots or accidents without proper perspective would violate the terms. 

Conclusion:

If we sum up this article, it is quite obvious that all the terms are quite usual. Almost every blogging platform offers the same sort of terms of content. However, Blogger has a bit strict policies, and unlike other platforms it deletes your blog more often. If you will follow their terms, then it is apparent that they will not delete or disable your blog. Have you ever become the victim of banning? Share your story with us by commenting below.

I have been a victim of false detection. Years ago, my blogger blog was deleted and labelled as spam. It pierced my heard and because of that, I migrated it to wordpress. Of course I sent out an appeal which reactivates my blog within a month. Sad thing is that, it makes me afraid that it might happen again. Though I am following Google TOS, it is really different to move around under a free name and hosting. There are really limitations and it is a terrifying experience to find an innocent blog deleted. :(
