There might be people who have faced an embarrassing experience when their blog was suddenly removed/deleted/disabled/spammed by Blogger.com. This experience is already faced by us when OnlineUstaad.com was hosted on blogger and on 22th April, 2013 it was disabled by blogger, and we were not able to do anything instantly. While we took every single measure to restore our blog on the same platform (Blogger.com) but we failed because it took many days for them to review our blog which was a one and half year blog having more than 270 posts published. Still, I’m waiting for blogger to complete the review of my blog and it is about 7th Month going on since the incident took place. What I actually did to restore my blog to normal will be shared with you via this post. But remember, my all struggles didn’t get restored my blog back. But of course, this is the procedure you can follow to restore your blog back. I still don’t know what happened with me on blogger. But I’ll tell you the major reasons when your blog may be spammed/disabled/removed by blogger. So you should avoid them.
What should you do when your blog is spammed/removed?
If your blog is marked as spam or removed by Blogger, but you still can access to your blogger account then you’ll see a message saying “Your blog was marked as spam by automatic classification system”. So when you see this message next to your blog which is removed and not opening now, so you must also see an option with that blog saying “Restore this blog“.
You have to take 2 instant steps in order to restore your blog back to normal, first of all, click on “Restore this blog” which appears next to your deleted blog, and just enter the captcha and email you want blogger team to contact you back. After doing so, go to the following link and start a new thread for your issue, put everything about your blog there and request for its restoration and review process. Use a polite language there and don’t call other people or your friends to participate in the discussion because it will be harder for them to answer every question. There are top contributors and even specialist from blogger who will guide you further to restore your blog to normal, while you have to be patience in this regard. Here is the link to start a quick thread:
So after starting your thread on blogger help forum, check it regularly for getting your issue resolved soon. You may check it after every hour because blogger top contributor may ask you some questions, so you need to answer their questions in order for the blog to be restored within less time. And don’t post anything that is irrelevant to the topic. Moreover, you’ll also be informed via Email by blogger team for the initial restoration report as well as the discussion which is going on for the review process over the forum.
Why my Blog was deleted/spammed by blogger?
There are many answers to this question and there might have been many reasons when your blog was marked as spam. here are few of them which can help you to understand the general policies of blogger for protecting their servers from spammers:
- If you are using third-party JS scripts directly inside your blogger code editor or inside widget area without encoding them then it might be the first reason for your blog to be marked as spam by blogger automatic classification system
- If you have copied content on your blog then that’s the reason for removal
- If you have published illegal content then that’s another reason
- If you have posted Paid software/games/books for free then that might be a reason
- If you are offering gambling or casino type of content then it is a solid reason
- If you have content abusing anyone, any group or any religion then your blog might get removed
- If you have porn content and didn’t set it to adults only then this is a also a reason
- If you have content that is violating someone’s copyrights or disclosing someone’s personal matters then it is a reason

- If you are approving suspicious comments then it is a real reason
