Spam Appeal Guidelines - March 2012

If your blog has been falsely classified as a spam (hacking, porn) host, we apologise.  Nobody gains, with genuine, non spam Blogger blogs being deleted or locked falsely.  Given the fact that automated spam detection is not yet a perfect science, Blogger Support is always willing to investigate any reports of false positive spam reviews, politely posted here in the forum.

That being said, before you request an appeal, it's worth describing a few examples of what Blogger regularly removes, as part of its zero tolerance policy to abusive / inappropriate content:

    * Affiliate marketing.
    * Content created with scripts and programs, rather than by hand.
    * Content or links referencing referral-based activities such as GPT ("Get Paid To"), MMH ("Make Money from Home"), MMF ("Make Money Fast"), MLM ("Multi-Level Marketing"), PTC ("Pay To Click"), or PTS ("Pay To Surf").
    * Content scraped from other blogs / websites.
    * Copyright Infringement.
    * Large blogs with multiple, unfocused / unrelated subjects.
    * Links to Illegal Downloads / Streaming / Torrents.

Why bloggers do not allow affiliate marketing, when they have adsense advertising program and Google Affiliate Marketing Network (GAN) which is part of the blogger features ?

Affiliate Links are allowed for blogs that have actual content. 

If your blog is JUST about affiliate marketing and has not real content then it's likely to get removed.

Hi DarkUfo.

what are the types of the actual content?

My blog deleted due to spam, I create blogs with manual content for months by my own hand, in my blog there are amazon affiliate and adsense ads.

The problem is not with legitimate blogs, with interesting and useful content for the readers benefit.  Blogs that serve Amazon and AdSense are carefully monitored, and contain material that attract readers on their own, relevant to the content in the ads.

The problem is not with blogs that are part of networks of blogs - all blogs with similar content, interesting and useful to their readers - linking to provide relevant content to their readers.

The problem is with blogs with no content or stolen content, that get traffic from a network of other blogs and websites, randomly shuffling their readers from one blog to another - that finance themselves with ads, served by the traffic network, - and reward the blog owners for the traffic that originates on their blog.
