My Other Niche Blog Has Been Disabled by Google..... :-(

.:  >o<
hoohoo.. :-(

Recently, I've downloaded an ebook from a fellow Internet marketer and I practised almost everything I've learned setting up my other niche blogs. One thing that I do is reprinting multiples articles from article-based websites.

The first thing I encountered today is my Google accounts has been blocked and I need to give my phone number so I will receive a text message containing a verification code from them (lengthy huh?). That SMS sounds like this,

"Your Google account verification code is **************************" (looks like this)

Then after verifying, I am able to access my Blogger in Draft again. :-(

After scrolling down, this is how my disabled blog looks like.

When I click the Restore link,
Blogger's spam-prevention robots have detected that your blog has characteristics of a spam blog. (What's a spam blog?) Since you're an actual person reading this, your blog is probably not a spam blog. Automated spam detection is inherently fuzzy, and we sincerely apologize for this false positive.
We received your unlock request on April 20, 2010. On behalf of the robots, we apologize for locking your non-spam blog. Please be patient while we take a look at your blog and verify that it is not spam.

What I do with that blog:
  • I read the T&C before, so it is OK to reprint that articles again in my blog. (limit is 25 articles)
  • So I use the epic super technique of mine 'copy and paste' preferred articles from that site into my niche blog, and seriously include the original author (even I make it sooo obvious that article is copied from other author) and I didn't alter anything.
  • Then I add some Creative Commons pictures so my blog looks more alive and lovely.

My advice after this incident is, read super thoroughly the T&Cs, not just thorough, but a super one so your blog won't end up like mine. (Even I think my blog didn't do anything 'funny and spammy' yet). Or maybe I didn't make a page about disclaimer, T&C, site/blog map and contact information for that blog, so that is why it looks like a splog to Google. Uurghhh, I hate when things like this happens. :-(

In my life, I had 2 internet accounts being blocked (temporarily): my Twitter, because of the Iranian attack that year, and my CJ account, because I failed to sell at least one product for more than one year... I'm still learning about internet marketing, and tried many methods to succeed, but maybe I am not good enough.
