Griz's Sites are Gone?

Postby strathy » Fri Nov 12, 2010 12:21 pm

Does anybody know what's going on with Griz? Both his Blogger sites are gone. They show up in the SERP's when you search for them, but when you click on the site - you get the "The blog you were looking for was not found."

He's probably been flagged as 'spam' or been given a STFU slap. :roll:

Blogger has been using overzealous anti-spam and copyright measures for about a year now, including automated and manual methods. Perfectly good, legit, blogs tend to be caught by it. That's why I don't recommend using them anymore.

Hmmm - this one is working now. http://beginner-blogger-basics.blogspot.com/ Either that or I typed it in wrong this morning before my 1st coffee ... The MMOFB is definitely still gone.

One thing I just thought of is that Griz said he planned to go back and edit old posts with updated info. Unfortunately, editing old posts is one of the things that the Blogger anti-spam bot will flag. That could be what happened.

not just blogger, i've edited old posts and removed old posts on sites, and both have sent the site into the abyss (temporarily). since G owns blogger, it makes sense that they could send that flag out to their own intellectual properties for further action.

Yay, more Grizz goodness. Winter time in Canada means no more golf, so I guess he's had a bit more time on his hands recently.
