blog deletion cihanmos 8/8/12 4:52 AM
Hi All,
I have an old blog which i don't use any longer and i would like to delete it because on search engines it comes up.

i can not remember the email address that i created the blog with as it is from 2008, tried everything but no luck.

Could you please help me how this account can be deleted? i have emailed to google support but nobody came back to me yet.

Google advises us, in plain language.

At Google, we take your privacy and security very seriously. Therefore, we're committed to returning accounts only when we're sure we're giving them back to the accounts' owners. Because Google doesn't ask for much personal information when you sign up for an account, we don't have many ways to verify that you own an account.

In other words, if you can't use either the account name / password, or the email address, to recover access to the Blogger account, then you may be out of luck.  Blogger has no legal right to give "you" access, if you cannot prove ownership.

Deletion is not an immediate alternative, either.​2012/01/deletion-is-not-​alternative-if-you.html

You might be able to use the (recently improved) Google account recovery tool, if you remember what the email address was, and enough auxiliary details (there are 3 options in the menu, and each have different possibilities). We hope that you can see the bigger picture, and read the FAQs (below), objectively.​2012/03/recovering-your-​account-information.html
