Recently, I received an email from Blogger saying my blog Generating revenue from your blog has been marked and locked as a spamblog. I can not longer edit or post on that blog. I had to go through a word verification process to get that blog reviewed by a human, and I don't know how long that will take.
What triggered this unwanted action? Well, prior to that, I had tried to prepare a post to answer a question from a member of the Google AdSense Help group. As I don't want him to wait too long, I have been repeatedly publishing the post as I went along, with a notice at the bottom "To be continued". I believe this is what triggered the spambot to mark the blog as a spamblog.
Conclusion: To avoid being marked as a spamblog, do not repeatedly publish in a short period of time.
UPDATE 17 February 2007: Got an email from Blogger saying my blog has been reviewed, verified, and cleared for regular use so that it will no longer appear as potential spam. It took only a day, so I think Blogger Support does not really deserve the bashing they often gets in the Google Blogger Help group.
UPDATE 2 March 2007: Another of my blog Generating Revenue From Your Site got blocked as a spamblog. I did nothing, like for example what is mentioned in this post, to trigger it, nor do I see anything in the blog that might seem even remotely that can get it classified as a spamblog. Another of my reader also reported that his blog was blocked. And there were many reports of such happenings in the Google Blogger Help group. Something musst be seriously wrong with the algorithm used by Google spambot.
UPDATE 3 March 2007: Received email message saying my blog is cleared and I can now post to the blog. See. Blogger Support does not deserve the bashing they often received in the Google Blogger Help group.
