Google Account Deleted - What to do

Blogger account is associated with a Google account. It is not rare to hear a blogger screaming for help after he deleted his Google account for that deletion will affect the Blogger account. So what should one do if one accidentally deleted the Google account? One should immediately report to Google Account Contact Form. There is a window of about a week to appeal, after which the Google Account will be permanently deleted.

  7. Hello.I cant find anything revelant to what I'm going to ask right now but nevertheless here goes.Uhh so what I wanted to know is how can I highlight the words that people search for in my search box at the top of my blogsite.I was wondering if you know how I can do that and send the codes to only let the word be highlighted when people search in the search box on my site and not from google or anything else.Anyway man, many thanks if you are able to answer my question...take care :)

  8. Peter---this is about links----
    I was able to post comments and add a link to a word last week----It now says no http allowed---do you know if there is a way to link now? The guide you have under links no longer works.


  9. Don't know which you are referring to but perhaps you can try BBCode (for bulletin board). Try
    [url=http...]anchor text[/url]

  10. I wonder which situation that Google will delete or ban one blog in your blogger account?

    For example, I use Blogger to create a blog, and the blog spends many bandwidth per day (300Gb/1 day) and the volume of the blog is so big.

    With the two example situation, whether blogger will banner the blog?

    This blog: will have more than 50,000 posts.

  11. Sorry for off topic! I want to ask one thing. Do you know whether Google will remove/elete/ban one blog in my Blogger Account? And which situation that let Google delete it? For example, I have a blog with high bandwith or hig volume and will Google delete it?

    My blog ( have more than 50,000 posts. And what's problem with it?

  12. Blogger uses a robot to screen blogs and we do not know what criteria they use to mark spam blogs. There have been quite a number of false positives (innocent blogs being marked as splogs) but there are ways to appeal. What I know is if a blogger publish many many posts in a short time, there is danger the blog will be identified as a spam blog. I don't think bandwidth is a criteria.

  13. Just found you blog on the blogsphere, Very informative. Will follow your blog.

    Hope I can learn a lot form you.

  14. sir, can you make my blogger in to 3 column if i give my username and password,

  15. It is dangerous to give strangers username and password. Why don't you just use a ready-made 3 column template?

  16. hello again peter,
    just some tips needed
    In your old site-tips-for-new-bloggers when I hover over the post title the colour changes even the non word area that is the area between the title and the digg button's colour also changes.Can you tell me how to do that?
    I tried post hover in my blog which also has the same post format but it did not work out as it worked out for you

  17. I still think the best thing to do is back up all your files.

    Do something before Google Delete your account. Cos you never know when it's going to happen; if it ever.

    @Peter : Very informative blog. I have lots to learn from you here.

  18. Glad you like it :-)

  24. I want to know if I can keep my Blogger account without having a Google Account.
    Google-Analytics ties up my search engine preventing me from accessing searches so I had to delete my Google Account which deleted my Youtube and Blogger Account.
    Is there anyway to re-instate my Youtube and Blogger Accounts the way I had them and block Google from preventing me from doing searches?

  25. Scott, how many browsers do you have in your computer? I suggest you read why you should be using more than 1 browsers, then you can be signed into different Google/Blogger whatever accounts in different browsers.

    This is what I suggest you do. Try to restore whatever accounts you deleted, then read How to change email address for Blogger login and get some ideas on how to solve your problems.

  26. Hi

  27. google deleted my account without any warnings and i lost over 300 pictures from my families friends parishioners and business
    i am considering legal action
    please help
    google is not answering my e-mails

  28. Fabio, I would advice against legal action as Google probably already has got themselves well protected. There don't seem to be a help forum specifically for Google account so perhaps you can post your problem to either gmail help forum or Blogger help forum

  31. Hello Peter,

    First of all, thanks for all the tips. I closed a Google account about three years ago and didn't realize that I had a Blogger account associated to it. I'd like the blog to be deleted, but it seems there's no way to do that now. I've tried filling in the Google Account Contact Form but I can't get back my old Google account as I deleted it... Do you think is there anything I can do?

    Thx again!
