Starting with Google’s Blogger blog is pleasant in many ways. It’s free, fast and secure. Hosting is absolutely free as your posts, templates, database and other files are stored in Google’s web servers. Being friendly to search engines, you can gain advantage of more traffic in blogger blog. But you are at risk too! Sometimes Google bots find that there is something wrong with your blog (spamming etc.) it suspends or deletes your whole blog without informing you. Well, spams are not allowed, but sometimes, bots can be wrong to recognize your content. The posts may be originally written by you and not copied. But bots/crawlers are not intelligent enough to sense your hardworking and honesty. Though there is an opportunity to request Google to have a review and make your web online again. But it’s a lengthy process and responses may not be positive or no responses are also possible. So, it’s better to take control of your hard work by downloading the complete back up of your blogger’s posts and templates to always stay at safety side.
Why you should Download Backup of Blogger?
The answer is quite simple. You thought of blogger, spent your time on choosing or modifying template, made changing in settings, worked days and nights on writing posts, designing images and even more. But one day found that the dream land of your blog is no more available and you are accused to spam the content; that was not actually spam. You request Google to give your blog back or at least posts only. But late, negative or no responses can ruin your efforts. Let’s admit that blogger is a property of Google and they host our content on their servers. But your efforts and creativity is not their property in any way. Therefore, why not take control of our private property instead of expecting that everything will go fair and in your favor. We strongly suggest you not be lazy in this matter.
