How can I ask Blogger to review and restore my new blog? It isn't spam Secret Squirrel81 7/28/12 2:44 PM
Please state the blog URL and any other details that you consider relevant, so we can address your issue quickly.
I just set up a blog dothefashionmaths.blogspot.com but it has been moved to the deleted folder and I had an email saying it had been picked up as spam. It isn't spam -this will be a personal blog. I have seen mentions on this forum for getting Blogger to review their decision, but cannot see how I formally request this? I did reply to the email but noticed it was a 'no-reply' one.

Thanks in advance for any help

Spam Appeal Guidelines - June 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: Read the FAQ, for a list of examples.

[FAQ] What Types Of Blog Content Are Considered Abusive, By Blogger Spam Mitigation Policy?

If you are the owner of the blog(s) in question, just reply here, saying that you've read these Guidelines, and objectively tell us whether any of the examples provided might be relevant to your blog - and we'll forward your appeal to Blogger Support.

Please note that the Blogger Team may look at other blogs in your account, as part of their review. If you request an appeal, and Blogger discovers other abusive / inappropriate content during the investigation, you risk having all of your content permanently removed. Please consider this when requesting an appeal.

Thank you for your reply. I am really not sure why my blog title was picked up as potential spam (I haven't written any posts yet). I am creating the blog for personal use and have read and understood the guidelines. If Blogger could review ths, I'd be most grateful.

OK, this is forwarded to Blogger Support, on your behalf.  Please read advice below, and linked articles, so your questions about the review process can be more easily explained.  You may find many questions answered by the linked articles in the Guidelines, also.

We are sincerely sorry for any inconvenience, caused by this process.  Please be patient, while you wait for your blog to be reviewed - and only post in this discussion.  When you reply in other questions, or ask duplicate / multiple questions, it just makes more work for everybody - and delays resolution of everybody's problems, including yours.

Please be aware that this is the final review, and the decision of the umpires cannot be appealed.  If you request another review, and the Blogger Team finds similar blogs in your Blogger account, you may lose access to all of your blogs.

OK, "dothefashionmaths.blogspot.com" has been restored - or did you already figure that out?
