"www"</title><content type="html">We're seeing a number of reports from blog owners, claiming their blogs are now subject to security alerts - and blocked when sharing.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Frequently, the reports involve blogs published to "blogspot.com" (not custom domains) - and using the "www" alias.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Some services, such as FaceBook, are now requiring "https" for shared URLs - and the "www" alias of "blogspot.com" ("www.whatever.blogspot.com") can't be used, with the "https" protocol.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name='more'&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;When Blogger started providing HTTPS for our blogs, we observed that "https://www.whatever.blogspot.com" was a problem.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;HTTPS is not an automatic feature for blogs and websites, outside Google space.  A blog or website &lt;a href="https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6073543" target="_blank"&gt;requires an SSL certificate&lt;/a&gt;, to provide HTTPS connectivity - and the certificates are generally not free.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;An SSL certificate is URL specific.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Google now provides SSL certificates, free of charge, to any Blogger blog owner, when &lt;a href="https://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/03/https-availability-for-all-custom.html"&gt;"HTTPS Availability" is enabled&lt;/a&gt; - but the certificates only support "whatever.blogspot.com".&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Unfortunately, Google SSL certificates &lt;a href="https://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2015/11/ssl-and-www-alias-of-blogspotcom.html"&gt;don't support "www.whatever.blogspot.com"&lt;/a&gt;.  Google generosity has limits - and Blogger probably decided that "www.whatever.blogspot.com" was not used enough, by blog owners, to justify the certificate cost.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"&gt;&lt;a href="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-olM-_Oxi6z8/W9G_Y34_i6I/AAAAAAAAjSw/tCd6B89FxEkLLHXLyRBFnW1rw4T5rYpIQCLcBGAs/s1600/Screenshot%2B2018-10-25%2Bat%2B09.03.26.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left;

data-original-width="1366" data-original-height="768" /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;This is what my readers would see, for "https://www.nitecruzr-test-ssl.blogspot.com".&lt;br clear=left /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Sharing, using the "www" alias, will cause an error display.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If I share "nitecruzr-test-ssl.blogspot.com", it has to be shared as "nitecruzr-test-ssl.blogspot.com".  The "www" alias, "https://www.nitecruzr-test-ssl.blogspot.com", will generate a privacy alert, when the shared link is clicked.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;blockquote&gt;&lt;span style="font-size:145%;"&gt;Your connection is not private&lt;/span&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Attackers might be trying to steal your information from &lt;b&gt;www.nitecruzr-test-ssl.blogspot.com&lt;/b&gt; (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards).  &lt;a href="https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/6098869" target="_blank"&gt;Learn more&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If the blog is published to a custom domain, the blog should be shared as "https://www.whatever.com".  With a custom domain involved, "https://whatever.blogspot.com" can still be used - but "https://www.whatever.blogspot.com" should not be used.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;hr /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Now that HTTPS is a reality for all #Blogger blogs, blog owners will see a problem accessing their blogs using the "www" alias of the "blogspot.com" URL.  This restriction applies to custom domain published blogs also, when the "blogspot" URL is used.  The "blogspot.com" URL will still redirect, automatically, to a published domain URL - but the "www" alias of the "blogspot.com" URL will not work.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;All "blogspot.com" URLs will have to be shared, without the "www" alias. &lt;img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Nitecruzr-Blogging/~4/gHGZ7wv5ssM" height="1" width="1" alt=""/&gt;</content><link

add a favicon.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;A favicon makes a blog easy to find, in a typical browser window, with lots of open tabs.  Adding a favicon is now just a matter of using one more dashboard wizard.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Not so long ago, you would require &lt;a href="https://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2009/01/setting-up-favicon-for-your-blog.html"&gt;a pair of files, hosted by a special (non Blogger) service&lt;/a&gt; - then you would edit the template, to add the URLs of the hosted files.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name='more'&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Now, Blogger supplies the "Configure Favicon" wizard - and hosts the file for us.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"&gt;&lt;a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-K_tXn2JdFCs/W7nWNgwbdiI/AAAAAAAAi_o/xZn9RIOGN3MQQqSsfAWtLvLz_j2LE7EWgCLcBGAs/s1600/Screenshot%2B2018-10-07%2Bat%2B03.50.07%2B-%2BEdited.png" imageanchor="1"

data-original-width="56" data-original-height="37" /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;There's the favicon, for this blog.&lt;br clear=left /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;You'll use the standard file selection wizard, that's provided on your computer - and should be able to choose an icon on your computer ("Upload") or elsewhere ("From this blog" / "From a URL").&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"&gt;&lt;a

data-original-width="1366" data-original-height="768" /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;Start from the "Favicon" wizard, on the dashboard Layout page - and click "Edit".&lt;br clear=left /&gt;&lt;br

You have to zoom your display out, to see some wizards that are available to you - or grab and slide the display.&lt;img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Nitecruzr-Blogging/~4/TyXRZ4kcV38" height="1" width="1" alt=""/&gt;</content><link rel="replies" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/feeds/4016150063068350316/comments/default" title="Post Comments" /><link rel="replies" type="text/html" href="http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=24069595&amp;postID=4016150063068350316" title="1 Comments" /><link rel="edit" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://www.blogger.com/feeds/24069595/posts/default/4016150063068350316" /><link rel="self" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://www.blogger.com/feeds/24069595/posts/default/4016150063068350316" /><link rel="alternate" type="text/html" href="http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Nitecruzr-Blogging/~3/TyXRZ4kcV38/hidden-submenu-items-in-theme-designer.html" title="Hidden Submenu Items in The Theme Designer" /><author><name>Nitecruzr</name><uri>http://www.blogger.com/profile/08069634565746003311</uri><email>[email protected]</email><gd:image rel="http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#thumbnail" width="16" height="16" src="https://img1.blogblog.com/img/b16-rounded.gif" /></author><media:thumbnail xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/" url="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-PjpKmEv3yN4/W7GURbtYzLI/AAAAAAAAi7I/UttDORsUjSghAGdDJZHESYfaxvy4zdyDwCLcBGAs/s72-c/Screenshot%2B2018-09-30%2Bat%2B23.24.15.png" height="72" width="72" /><thr:total>1</thr:total><feedburner:origLink>http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/10/hidden-submenu-items-in-theme-designer.html</feedburner:origLink></entry><entry><id>tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-24069595.post-3244387146130624283</id><published>2018-09-29T10:24:00.002-07:00</published><updated>2018-11-08T06:02:54.357-08:00</updated><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="&quot;Another blog ...&quot;" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Authentication Confusion" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Confusion" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Custom Domains" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Custom Domains Ownership Verification" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="DNS" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="DNS Latency" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Registrar" /><title type="text">Domain Ownership Verification, And DNS Latency</title><content type="html">Some blog owners are confused about how domain ownership verification works - or should work.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The domain ownership verification process involves two challenges.  Both accessing the registrars zone editor, and parsing the displayed content, is a challenge - for anybody but the domain owner. Or sometimes, including the domain owner.  &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Blogger uses an intriguing technique, to verify that the blog owner, submitting a blog for domain publishing, is also the domain owner.  They give the blog owner a token to add, to the domain - then verify that the token was added, before publishing the blog to the domain.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name='more'&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;How does Blogger verify that the token, that they provide, is actually added to the domain?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Blogger has no special ability, where domain access is involved.  Their program can't examine the domain zone editor display, any more than &lt;a href="https://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2015/09/basics-you-cannot-login-to-my-domain.html"&gt;any other non domain owner&lt;/a&gt;.  And parsing the zone editor display, with different displays because each different registrar / domain host provides &lt;a href="https://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2008/11/custom-domain-dns-addresses-and-name.html"&gt;their own individual zone editor&lt;/a&gt;, will require complex coding.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;The verification token is a DNS address.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The Blogger provided &lt;a href="https://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2012/09/what-is-this-new-cname-anyway.html"&gt;domain ownership verification token&lt;/a&gt; is actually a domain DNS address.  The address in the token connects a unique domain host to a special Blogger verification server.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;When the blog / domain owner publishes a blog to the domain, the publishing process checks to see if the domain host (aka the "short" token) connects to the Blogger verification server (aka the "long" token).  Each short and long token is unique, for each domain - and acts as a domain ownership "certificate".&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;If the short and long tokens connect, ownership is verified.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If the "short" token address connects to the "long" token address, domain ownership is verified - and the blog can be published to the domain.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Only the blog owner (when publishing the blog to the domain) knows the essential certificate values - and only the domain owner can access the domain zone editor, to install the certificate.  Only if the blog and domain owner are the same person - or know and trust each other - can the certificate be installed, to allow the blog owner to publish the blog to the domain.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If the certificate has not been installed, the blog owner sees the infamous "Third-party domain settings" display - and gets the certificate values, to add to the domain.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The "short" token (12 alphanumeric characters), combined with the "long" token (14 characters), produces the equivalent of a 26 character random values password.  How many blog owners use even 12 characters, in their password (and preferably better than "password")?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Considering the complex values in both tokens, a domain hijack is unlikely to involve the publishing process.  Domain ownership verification is well designed - similar to the whole custom domain DNS infrastructure.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;But, there is a complication here.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Many domains, hosted by thousands of different domain hosts, cause problems.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;How does the "Publishing" program react, if the certificate has not been installed?  The "Publishing" program starts ownership verification, by feeding the "short" token into a DNS resolution process - then waits to see if the "short" token address connects to the Blogger verification server, and the "long" token address.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The key word, here, is "&lt;b&gt;wait&lt;/b&gt;".&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;How long should the "Publishing" process wait, before displaying the infamous "Third-party domain settings" message?  With thousands of different domain hosts, located all over the Internet, some may provide instant response - and others may require &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2008/12/custom-domains-dns-and-latency.html"&gt;many long seconds of waiting&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Never type the addresses by hand - even 1 character misplaced or mistyped will break ownership verification.  Always &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2016/05/verify-blogspot-and-domain-urls.html"&gt;copy then paste from "Third-party domain settings"&lt;/a&gt; into the registrar "Add CNAME" wizard.  And verify the second "CNAME" values - the "long" and "short" addresses - after the address is added to the domain.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;With &lt;b&gt;details properly verified&lt;/b&gt;, waiting 5 or 10 minutes after hitting "Save" would be a good way to make the verification reliable - but how many blog owners, anxious to see their new blog address, will wait that long?  Even 5 or 10 seconds is too long to wait, for most owners.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;And even waiting, you may see "Third-party domain settings", unnecessarily.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both;

- even as "Third-party domain settings" is being displayed.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Verify domain connectivity, before giving up, in despair.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;With "Third-party domain settings" displayed, after you just added the second "CNAME", and carefully verified the addresses, you should maybe check the blog again, using your browser.  Sometimes, you may find the blog displayed to you, or some of your readers, &lt;b&gt;using the new domain URL&lt;/b&gt; - even though Blogger is still instructing you to add the ownership verification, to publish to the domain.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;With the blog displayed in the browser, and even though "Third-party domain settings" is displayed, start &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2010/01/custom-domain-migration-managing.html"&gt;the domain migration process&lt;/a&gt; - and get on with your life.  Don't spend time unnecessarily republishing the blog to the domain, if the blog and domain is live.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Of course, you can only &lt;a href="https://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/09/https-migration-managing-traffic.html"&gt;set "HTTPS Availability" and "HTTPS Redirection"&lt;/a&gt; after the blog is successfully published to the domain.  With these latency issues considered, maybe we should still be observing a &lt;a href="https://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2008/04/new-custom-domains-in-transition.html"&gt;3 to 5 day formal "Transition Period"&lt;/a&gt;, before enabling "HTTPS Availability" and "HTTPS Redirection".&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Possibly, republishing the blog unnecessarily - or enabling "HTTPS Redirect" too soon - may contribute to the infamous &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2008/12/why-isnt-blogger-solving-another-blog.html"&gt;"Another blog ..." database corruption&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;hr /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;When you publish your blog to a #Blogger custom domain URL, you may sometimes add and carefully verify the second "CNAME" - and still see the well known "Third-party domain settings" message and instructions to add the second "CNAME", again!&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If this happens to you, before throwing up your arms in despair, or unnecessarily trying again to republish the blog to the domain, check the blog.  In some cases, the blog may be published to the domain URL, even with "Third-party domain settings" displayed.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Nitecruzr-Blogging/~4/VyP-YvWKQNI" height="1" width="1" alt=""/&gt;</content><link rel="replies" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/feeds/3244387146130624283/comments/default" title="Post Comments" /><link rel="replies" type="text/html" href="http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=24069595&amp;postID=3244387146130624283" title="0 Comments" /><link rel="edit" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://www.blogger.com/feeds/24069595/posts/default/3244387146130624283" /><link rel="self" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://www.blogger.com/feeds/24069595/posts/default/3244387146130624283" /><link rel="alternate" type="text/html" href="http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Nitecruzr-Blogging/~3/VyP-YvWKQNI/domain-ownership-verification-and-dns.html" title="Domain Ownership Verification, And DNS Latency" /><author><name>Nitecruzr</name><uri>http://www.blogger.com/profile/08069634565746003311</uri><email>[email protected]</email><gd:image rel="http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#thumbnail" width="16" height="16" src="https://img1.blogblog.com/img/b16-rounded.gif" /></author><media:thumbnail xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/" url="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-fTJ2e_PNBW0/W6-EXHzV4iI/AAAAAAAAi54/3i_ut6pIZ9QtKhpA60sxloluCc8RhPIXgCLcBGAs/s72-c/Screenshot%2B2018-09-29%2Bat%2B09.53.41%2B-%2BEdited.png" height="72" width="72" /><thr:total>0</thr:total><feedburner:origLink>http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/09/domain-ownership-verification-and-dns.html</feedburner:origLink></entry><entry><id>tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-24069595.post-604637935040503419</id><published>2018-09-25T11:17:00.000-07:00</published><updated>2018-09-25T15:05:00.680-07:00</updated><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Blogger Mystery" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Dashboard" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Dashboard - Stats" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="GeoLocation" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Referer Spam" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Stats" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Stats &quot;Audience&quot;" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Stats &quot;Traffic sources&quot;" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Visitor Information" /><title type="text">Stats "Unknown Region" And The "Audience" Map</title><content type="html">The Stats "Audience" page is now showing a mysterious entry, in the "Pageviews by Countries" list, for some blogs.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The list of the top 10 most active countries, for the "Now", "Day", "Week", and / or "Month" lists, for some blogs, includes a non country name - "Unknown Region".&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The "Unknown Region" entry appears to be associated with a second Stats oddity, a monochromatic "Pageviews by Countries" map.  This oddity is causing some concern, in &lt;a href="https://productforums.google.com/d/topic/blogger/8NA5Ga9gWDs/discussion" target="_blank"&gt;various forum discussions&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br clear=left /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Where one would hope to see a familiar Stats multi-shaded Audience map, with various countries displayed in differing shades of green or black, some blog owners are seeing a monochromatic pale green display.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The monochromatic display appears to be accompanied by the mysterious "Unknown Region" entry, in the countries list.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I am examining the Stats "Audience" page, for this blog - in different time ranges.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both;

- and some people may be using IP addresses that simply have not been registered with all Internet services.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I'm suspecting that Blogger decided that with "Unknown Region" displayed, the "Pageviews by Countries" list is not accurate enough to make the shaded map relevant.  If "Unknown Region" is present in the list, where would you shade the map?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;With some Stats displays, it's possible that if the country containing the "Unknown Region" was known, the activity list might fall in a different sequence. That being the case, the country map might be shaded completely differently.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Rather than display a map with only 9 countries shaded inaccurately, they are now displaying a map in monochromatic green.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;For practical advice, as I suggest about referer spam entries, the blog owners may wish to observe the mystery briefly - then get on with their lives.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Publish more actual content, get more readers, and the "Unknown Region" numbers will become statistically less significant.  Or, select a different time range, for a different perspective.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Don't be mislead by &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2009/06/there-are-no-elephants-in-my-back-yard.html"&gt;signs prohibiting elephants&lt;/a&gt;, or maybe &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2015/07/the-infamous-bx-codes-are-simply.html"&gt;inventorying bX codes&lt;/a&gt;, or various other idle activity.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;3 hours after I started this study, "Unknown Region" is no longer part of "Now" - though it can still be seen as "Day".&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both;

has elapsed, before moving forward - to prevent a resurgence of &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2008/12/why-isnt-blogger-solving-another-blog.html"&gt;"Another blog ..." database corruption&lt;/a&gt;, that can't be easily corrected.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Mature domains, however, probably need to move forward.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Ever since HTTPS was released for Blogger - well before &lt;a href="https://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/03/https-availability-for-all-custom.html"&gt;Blogger released HTTPS for custom domains&lt;/a&gt;, in early 2018 - I was informed, in various forum discussions, that people could not read my linked posts, because their networks did not permit access.  Now, I know why that was happening.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Your readers may have observed a similar problem, with your blog.  Some may have emailed you, others simply found other blogs to read.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Migration to an HTTPS URL will resemble migration to a custom domain URL.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;As your blog is being reindexed using an HTTPS URL, it will have two base URLs - "http", and "https".  Both URLs will reference smaller blogs - and both smaller blogs will have lower search reputation.  Lower search reputation will &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2010/06/blogger-magic-search-engine-indexing.html"&gt;slow the reindexing process&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;ol&gt;&lt;li&gt;While re indexing of the blog is in progress, you'll have some posts indexed under the HTTP URL, and other posts indexed under the HTTPS URL.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;As additional posts are indexed under the HTTPS URL, those same posts will drop from indexing under the HTTP URL.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;You get better reputation with all content indexed under one base URL - and this won't be the case until the migration is complete.  With the indexing of the blog split between the two base URLs, the reputation overall will be lower.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;With lower reputation, your posts will have poorer SERP position - some posts indexed under the old HTTP URL, others under the new HTTPS URL - though all SERP entries will get your readers to the blog.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;With poorer SERP position overall, you'll have a period of less search originated traffic.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;The more often that you publish, during the migration, the more you'll compensate for the drop in reader traffic.  More to read yields more search engine activity, and more readers.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;As the blog is reindexed under the new URL, reputation for the HTTPS base URL will pick up.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;When the blog is completely reindexed under the new URL, the HTTPS base URL will recover the previous search rep, and traffic, of the HTTP base URL.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Use two Search Console properties to monitor the reindexing process - one property for the blog, using "HTTP", and a second using "HTTPS".  Check indexing reports for both properties, regularly.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ol&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Until the reindexing is complete, both smaller blogs will have less reader activity, lower search reputation, and less &lt;a href="https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/70897" target="_blank"&gt;search related traffic&lt;/a&gt; - and this will lead to still lower search reputation, less traffic, and less reader activity.  Lather, rinse, repeat.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;To migrate your blog from HTTP to HTTPS, you have to endure a period of traffic loss.  It's painful - but since the upgrade is inevitable, the traffic loss can't be avoided.  Like &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2010/01/custom-domain-migration-managing.html"&gt;migration to a custom domain URL&lt;/a&gt;, you can minimise the traffic loss, with proper planning.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;We'll use this blog as a case study, and examine the traffic loss during migration.  We'll start with the blog having "HTTPS Availability" enabled, and "HTTPS Redirect" disabled, as a baseline.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Until late September, this blog was indexed as "http://blogging.nitecruzr.net".&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;"HTTPS Availability" was enabled, and "HTTP Redirect" was disabled.  All "HTTP" references redirected to "http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/" - and all "HTTPS" references redirected to "https://blogging.nitecruzr.net/".  Note the oddity with the domain root redirection, where domain root post URLs may &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/08/custom-domain-redirection-and-referral.html"&gt;redirect to the home page&lt;/a&gt; - this may affect both re indexing, and reader access.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;http://blogging.nitecruzr.net&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"&gt;&lt;a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-sK7f6NhRgow/W6atxu6TvlI/AAAAAAAAivw/4MvdPR8mFqU36gZwvucoeXHbX7EIXQx_gCLcBGAs/s1600/Screenshot%2B2018-09-22%2Bat%2B17.00.08.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left;

many months, after HTTPS for custom domains was released, to upgrade - and got various snarky questions why I was "Not Secure".  And even now, there are still various non Google accessories and services, that &lt;a href="https://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2016/05/not-all-plugins-and-third-party-code.html"&gt;have not yet been upgraded&lt;/a&gt; - and some that will never be upgraded.  And Page / Post / Template Editor &lt;a href="https://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2016/05/https-redirect-and-post-editor-https.html"&gt;will annoy you, either way&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Either way, it's a decision that you have to make, for each blog that you publish.  Right now, I am cautiously optimistic about this blog.  But, there's good news, and bad news.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;The entire Internet must be upgraded, to make us all safer.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Looking at the last weeks reindexing, I am not seeing good progress.  It's pretty obvious that I need to publish more content, to encourage search engine activity.  The good news, I think, is that &lt;a href="https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6073543" target="_blank"&gt;every blog and website must go through this experience&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The web must be upgraded to HTTPS access - because what is coming next will be forced HTTPS, aka HSTS ("&lt;a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_Strict_Transport_Security" target="_blank"&gt;HTTPS Strict Transport Security&lt;/a&gt;").&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Right now, my blog is losing reputation - and other websites, not going through this re indexing, are gaining reputation.  When the Internet moves to HSTS, though, the websites that have not upgraded will go through the same pain as I am now experiencing.  And some will simply go offline.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;So, it's pain now, or pain later.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;hr /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The process of re indexing a #Blogger blog under an "HTTPS" base URL will lead to temporary lower search reputation, and less search related traffic.  Since HTTPS reindexing must happen, the traffic loss can't be avoided.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;After the blog is completely reindexed, search reputation - and traffic - will return.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;https://productforums.google.com/d/topic/blogger/BaBomPY7PZ4/discussion&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br

/&gt;Like every move forward, though, there's always a couple steps backwards.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The "Responsive" themes are not as easily customised as the earlier "Designer" and "Layout" themes - and they lack some enjoyable features.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name='more'&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;This blog, using the "Notable" template in the "Responsive" themes class, is &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/02/the-real-blogger-status-moves-into.html"&gt;better looking and easier to read&lt;/a&gt; - but there are features lacking.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Besides lacking customability, there are various features in previous themes classes, that you won't find any more.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Jump Break is not available.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The "Responsive" class themes do not provide for a configurable, per post "teaser" section aka "Jump Break".  The main page for "Contempo" and "Notable" has a "teaser" - but it's not configurable.  The main page for "Emporio" and "Soho" will show only the first image in the post - and no text.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align:

available.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;One of the problems with the "mobile" template was that there was only one mobile template.  Some "mobile" computers would do better displaying the regular "desktop" template, than the one "mobile" template.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;And the "mobile" template was not included in the template "Edit HTML" wizard.  Some CSS could be used - if you knew what

/&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Now, there is only one template - and no "Mobile cog wheel".&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Instead of a "mobile" template, the "Responsive" theme code automatically adjusts the display, depending upon screen size.  A "mobile" display is automatic - and some features are suppressed, for smaller screens.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;The navbar is gone.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br

&lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/03/the-blogger-google-cdn-and-logout.html"&gt;details that are not compatible with hosting on the Google CDN&lt;/a&gt;.  Is this why Blogger started providing a "Report this blog" sidebar gadget - to replace that one navbar link?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;The sidebar is now hidden - unless you need to see it.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;See the linklist "Responsive Templates Tests", in the pop out sidebar?  You need to &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/08/now-ya-see-it-now-ya-dont.html"&gt;click on the "hamburger" icon&lt;/a&gt;, in the upper right corner of the screen, to see the sidebar.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The "pop out" sidebar is one innovative design feature, that helps the "Responsive" class templates replace the "Layout" / "Designer" class templates, and their special "Mobile" template.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"&gt;&lt;a

more, undocumented improvements, too.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;There are various significant differences between the four different "Responsive" templates, that may encourage choice of one or the other.  I'll update this post, from time to time.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;hr /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Every new #Blogger feature or option offers excitement - and every new feature or option offers regret.  The exciting new "Responsive" class themes are no exception to this rule.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;We miss several features, found in previous Themes.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br

type="html">I published this blog to the "Notable" theme of the "Responsive" class templates, in February 2018.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I never spend a lot of time tweaking and making blog formatting changes - there are so many other Blogger issues to write about.  But that ugly big black box, at the top of each post page, was in my list of improvements needed.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;And last week, I found the motivation, and instructions, to improve the look of this blog.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name='more'&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The big black box title, in the Notable page / post page, bothered me for several months.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Last week, I improved the look, in my individual page and post pages.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Look at what I had, earlier this year.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If you published your blog using "Notable", you have the same ugly page / post title.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;When I knew where to tweak, this was a 10 minute tweak - using the Template Designer "Advanced" menu.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;First, I changed the colors.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both;

post, in this blog&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;For those of you who don't realise - the "Responsive" themes have a cornucopia of settings, for "Individual Post or Page", that &lt;a href="https://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/10/hidden-submenu-items-in-theme-designer.html"&gt;may not be visible to you&lt;/a&gt;.  I wonder how many blog owners never see these other settings?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Zoom out, 5 clicks, to see the many settings that you can make.  The Template Designer may not support "Zoom" - so Zoom another tab in the browser window, then return to your Template

I next resized it, to not block out so much screen space.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Using "Add CSS", I added one rule, obtained from reading &lt;a

upgraded this blog to use the "Notable" theme in the exciting new #Blogger "Responsive" class templates, in early 2018.  I always considered the big black box title, in the page / post pages, to be ugly.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Last week, I was able to make this blog a bit prettier, using 10 minutes of my time - and the Template Designer Advanced menu.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br

of Blogger, now removed, was the Google+ Share counter.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Similar to the FaceBook "Like" counter, many people used to enjoy watching the Share counter increase, for a given blog or post.  I, personally, used to share my blog posts to Google+ - then watch happily, as the numbers climbed.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The Share counter is no more a part of Blogger.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name='more'&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;One of the less socially responsible behaviour of Google+ members is to share and re share various Google+ stream posts, without reading the content of the posts - simply to increase personal reputation in Google+.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Almost every Google+ member re shares some posts, without previosly reading the content or clicking on the links.  If you curate posts into Collections, this will be normal.  Curate first, read later.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Unfortunately, some people will re share constantly, without reading anything, ever - and this is where the Google+ Share counter problem started.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The purpose of Google+ is to create a community of people who would share and re share interesting content with each other - and participate in commenting and reading of content.  The Google+ Share counter did not always encourage this intended community, because too many members only want to boost their personal reputation, without actually participating.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If a Blogger blog is shared in a Google+ post, and the Google+ post is re shared,  the Share count can increase - but the blog may not get any traffic.  People who Share a newly published post may watch the Share count climb - but see no increase in pageview count for the blog or the post in question.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Some blogs may attract this abusive activity.  Their community will be mostly Google+ members who will consistently re share everything that appears in their stream, simply to give themselves lots of post count, and reputation.  They may similarly "+1" everything that appears in their streams, in hopes that their followers would do the same with their shares and reshares - again, to increase their personal reputation.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Irresponsible sharing, resharing, and "+1" activity would make the share counter for some blogs climb dramatically - even while the blog / post pageview count remained low.  Some blog owners might misread the counter - and concentrate their blog publicity activity in Google+, while neglecting &lt;a href="http://groups.google.com/a/googleproductforums.com/forum/?hl=en&amp;fromgroups#%21category-topic/blogger/l02w2YK_0Gw[1-25-true]" target="_blank"&gt;other more productive publicity&lt;/a&gt; - and wonder why their blog has no followers, readers, or subscribers.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Some blog owners would have followers who attracted followers, simply for increasing their own personal reputation, by &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2017/03/blog-pageview-counts-and-social-sharing.html"&gt;following people with huge followers communities&lt;/a&gt;.  These secondary followers would probably be &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2014/01/visibility-of-google-comments-is.html"&gt;invisible to the blog owners&lt;/a&gt;.  With lots of invisible followers, who only followed to increase their own personal reputation by sharing, re sharing, and "+1", this would make a Google+ Share counter spin dramatically.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;All of this activity would leave some people with no motivation to actually read any published posts and comments - and further contribute to the gap between the pageview counters, and the Share counter.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br

data-original-width="1366" data-original-height="768" /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;There is no Google+ Share counter in the dashboard Posts page, any more.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br clear="left" /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;In one of the recent versions of Google+, the Share counter was redesigned - and Blogger removed the counter from the dashboard Posts page.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;End of story.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;hr /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The Google+ Share counter, once a key detail in the #Blogger dashboard Posts page, was unreliable.  It was originally intended to serve as an equivalent to the FaceBook "Like" counter, in suggesting the popularity of a given blog or post.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Unfortunately, too many Google+ members use Google+ simply to boost personal popularity, by irresponsibly sharing, re sharing, and "+1" - without actually discussing, following, or reading shared content. The Share counter would climb rapidly, without any actual blog content being read.  Blog owners were confused by the difference in the Share counter, and actual blog activity.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;After a recent Google+ redesign, Blogger removed the Share counter from the Posts page.&lt;img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Nitecruzr-Blogging/~4/uLqoSWyk4-A" height="1" width="1" alt=""/&gt;</content><link rel="replies" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/feeds/5222963512121663562/comments/default" title="Post Comments" /><link rel="replies" type="text/html" href="http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=24069595&amp;postID=5222963512121663562" title="0 Comments" /><link rel="edit" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://www.blogger.com/feeds/24069595/posts/default/5222963512121663562" /><link rel="self" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://www.blogger.com/feeds/24069595/posts/default/5222963512121663562" /><link rel="alternate" type="text/html" href="http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Nitecruzr-Blogging/~3/uLqoSWyk4-A/the-google-share-counter-was-unreliable.html" title="The Google+ Share Counter Was Unreliable" /><author><name>Nitecruzr</name><uri>http://www.blogger.com/profile/08069634565746003311</uri><email>[email protected]</email><gd:image rel="http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#thumbnail" width="16" height="16" src="https://img1.blogblog.com/img/b16-rounded.gif" /></author><media:thumbnail xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/" url="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ZsvJ1N0ynpA/W5XZPxErehI/AAAAAAAAip4/CrkLpBbfZxo7bJuZJbyMcuxRoIu9bHF5QCLcBGAs/s72-c/Screenshot%2B2018-09-09%2Bat%2B19.37.32.png" height="72" width="72" /><thr:total>0</thr:total><feedburner:origLink>http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/09/the-google-share-counter-was-unreliable.html</feedburner:origLink></entry><entry><id>tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-24069595.post-8568191524102566098</id><published>2018-09-09T11:12:00.001-07:00</published><updated>2018-09-09T17:22:58.591-07:00</updated><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="2-Step Verification" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Account Recovery" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Authentication" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Obsolete Services" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Recovery" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="SMS" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Verification" /><title type="text">SMS Verification Being Replaced By 2 Step Verification</title><content type="html">Over the years, we've seen various problem reports mentioning attempted use of SMS for identity verification, for emergency Blogger account access. &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;It's possible that SMS based identity verification is one more service that has been replaced - by Google 2 Step Verification.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name='more'&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;SMS is an obsolete service - but there are better replacements.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;5 years ago, we saw "Go Blogger" being silently replaced by &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2013/11/gobloggercom-mms-sms-blogging-is.html"&gt;various Blogger services&lt;/a&gt;, such as "Mail-to-Blogger" and normal browser use on mobile phones.  Recently, we've seen reports about problems with "SMS Verification", that suggest that its time is similarly limited.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;SMS is &lt;a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMS" target="_blank"&gt;a proprietary text messaging protocol&lt;/a&gt;, provided by various cellular phone carriers, over their individual networks - not using the "Internet".  The various carriers maintain gateways, for connecting their SMS networks to other carriers networks - but not all networks connect directly, to all other networks.  Some SMS networks won't connect to others - such as the networks that Blogger uses.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Complexity leads to unreliability.  The more networks a Blogger recovery token has to traverse, to connect to a blog owner needing the token, the greater chance that one network will have a problem - and the token will be trashed.  And no recovery for you.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Blogger has always had problems with "Go Blogger" - and has recently had similar problems, with SMS based account recovery - because of network complexity.  If SMS based account recovery is unreliable, for reasons not controlled by Blogger, we can use 2 Step Verification - with a little effort.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Google 2 Step Verification provides &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2013/06/use-google-2-step-verification-to.html"&gt;identity verification, with various choices&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;A registered phone - providing a one use, short lifetime authentication code by text, or by voice.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;A physical USB key.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Backup, one use, long lifetime authentication codes, by text.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;An authentication code generator, installed on your smartphone / tablet.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;br /&gt;All of these, like "SMS Verification", require precautionary action by the blog owner before any identification problem is experienced - but that is a problem with &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2014/11/blogger-is-unfair-to-would-be-blog.html"&gt;any reliable and safe identification technique&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"&gt;&lt;a href="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-TNV7CEWAM28/W5VN7hQrd6I/AAAAAAAAipk/yBIwu1hV9-EqbkJ9PcddeTO7DspKLOOEQCLcBGAs/s1600/gplus8474310836133619480%2B-%2BEdited.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"&gt;&lt;img border="0" src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-TNV7CEWAM28/W5VN7hQrd6I/AAAAAAAAipk/yBIwu1hV9-EqbkJ9PcddeTO7DspKLOOEQCLcBGAs/s320/gplus8474310836133619480%2B-%2BEdited.png" width="320" height="213" data-original-width="376" data-original-height="250" /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;A "USB Key" - a small, single purpose USB flash drive.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br clear=left /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;You can get a USB key from any number of vendors, such as Amazon or possibly &lt;a href="https://www.yubico.com/product/security-key-by-yubico" target="_blank"&gt;Yubico&lt;/a&gt;.  Once you purchase a key, you &lt;a href="https://myaccount.google.com/signinoptions/two-step-verification" target="_blank"&gt;register it with Google&lt;/a&gt; -

and those that do may not connect with Blogger, reliably. Many cellular Internet providers only provide  Internet based text messaging.  You will be better off, following their lead.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;hr /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Some #Blogger blog owners, needing emergency access to their accounts, find that the old SMS based authentication token does not always work, reliably.  SMS is slowly becoming obsolete, for several reasons.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;For emergency account access, Google provides 2 Step Verification, which provides several options for providing a recovery token.&lt;img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Nitecruzr-Blogging/~4/7fbXL8kGqvQ" height="1" width="1" alt=""/&gt;</content><link rel="replies" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/feeds/8568191524102566098/comments/default" title="Post Comments" /><link rel="replies" type="text/html" href="http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=24069595&amp;postID=8568191524102566098" title="0 Comments" /><link rel="edit" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://www.blogger.com/feeds/24069595/posts/default/8568191524102566098" /><link rel="self" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://www.blogger.com/feeds/24069595/posts/default/8568191524102566098" /><link rel="alternate" type="text/html" href="http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Nitecruzr-Blogging/~3/7fbXL8kGqvQ/sms-verification-being-replaced-by-2.html" title="SMS Verification Being Replaced By 2 Step Verification" /><author><name>Nitecruzr</name><uri>http://www.blogger.com/profile/08069634565746003311</uri><email>[email protected]</email><gd:image rel="http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#thumbnail" width="16" height="16" src="https://img1.blogblog.com/img/b16-rounded.gif" /></author><media:thumbnail xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/" url="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-TNV7CEWAM28/W5VN7hQrd6I/AAAAAAAAipk/yBIwu1hV9-EqbkJ9PcddeTO7DspKLOOEQCLcBGAs/s72-c/gplus8474310836133619480%2B-%2BEdited.png" height="72" width="72" /><thr:total>0</thr:total><feedburner:origLink>http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/09/sms-verification-being-replaced-by-2.html</feedburner:origLink></entry><entry><id>tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-24069595.post-2915291157794832460</id><published>2018-09-02T20:46:00.000-07:00</published><updated>2018-09-09T14:03:51.790-07:00</updated><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Email Mining" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Email Mining Op" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Malware" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Redirecting" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Security" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Security Problems" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Strategic Malware" /><title type="text">The "w i d g e t s e r v e r" Abandoned Domain Is Malicious</title><content type="html">We've been dealing with a minor recent deluge of reports, from blog owners reporting mysterious redirection of their blogs.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The original typical report, which started like any report involving a respected Internet service going out of business, was annoying - yet benign.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Today, the status changed to malicious.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Right now, "w i d g e t s e r v e r . c o m" is &lt;a href="https://productforums.google.com/d/topic/blogger/k9pylXwYkjI/discussion" target="_blank"&gt;redirecting to "l i b o s t u d i o s . com"&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;blockquote&gt;Please enter your email address to continue.&lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Many gadgets, long known for redirecting, are again redirecting - recently to "w i d g e t s e r v e r . c o m" - and now to "l i b o s t u d i o s . c o m".  As some were diagnosed, a few owners advised that the misbehaving gadget &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2015/02/dont-make-your-blog-vulnerable-to.html"&gt;had been installed long ago&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;We've seen, so far, a few old (not!) friends.  M a u k i e , N e o C o u n t e r, and "S u n    a n d    M o o n   P  h a s e" can be seen, &lt;a href="https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topicsearchin/blogger/%22w$20i$20d$20g$20e$20t$20s$20e$20r$20v$20e$20r$20.$20c$20o$20m%22" target="_blank"&gt;in some topics&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;A brief sample of forum topics involving "w i d g e t s e r v e r . c o m" mention gadgets previously installed by Blogger, using the "Add a Gadget" wizard.  Recently, Blogger cleared out the third party gadgets from "Add a Gadget" - and the gadgets rejected by Blogger are now hosted by ""w i d g e t s e r v e r . c o m".  And they redirect to "l i b o s t u d i o s . com" - which is email mining, clearly malicious.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both;

with posts advertised, using the domain root URL.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;In some cases, redirection only shows the reader the blog home page, as the first view of the blog - even with a specific post being linked in the advertised URL.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name='more'&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;For my custom domain "nitecruzr.net", "blogging.nitecruzr.net" is the target of &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2014/07/the-domain-root-naked-domain-may-not-be.html"&gt;the domain root redirect&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;This post "&lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/08/custom-domain-redirection-and-referral.html" target="_blank"&gt;&lt;i&gt;Custom Domain Redirection, And "A" Referral Servers&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/a&gt;" has a URL of "&lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/08/custom-domain-redirection-and-referral.html" target="_blank"&gt;http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/08/custom-domain-redirection-and-referral.html&lt;/a&gt;".  This post "&lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/08/custom-domain-redirection-and-referral.html" target="_blank"&gt;&lt;i&gt;Custom Domain Redirection, And "A" Referral Servers&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/a&gt;", should have an alternate URL of "&lt;a href="http://nitecruzr.net/2018/08/custom-domain-redirection-and-referral.html" target="_blank"&gt;http://nitecruzr.net/2018/08/custom-domain-redirection-and-referral.html&lt;/a&gt;".&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Click on the 4 links, in the paragraph immediately above, and compare the results -

to the blog home page, using HTTPS.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br clear=left /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Unfortunately, some blog owners are observing that redirection of a specific root URL - maybe a custom landing page, or a specific post advertised using the root URL - appears to lead only to the home page of the published blog.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;This is a problem with &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2008/10/custom-domains-and-url-forwarding-still.html"&gt;domain / website design, in general&lt;/a&gt; - and with Blogger custom domain design, in particular.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The domain root to published URL (for most blogs, the "www" host) appears to use a version of frame forwarding, with some blogs being reported.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;I never recommend using Frame Forwarding, in the custom domain DNS setup.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;One of the disadvantages of frame forwarding is that redirects using frame forwarding drop the post URL.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;We've been seeing this problem reported, for several years.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The problem, rarely - but not never - reported, started several years ago.  This was before &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2015/09/blogger-offers-https-for-blogspot.html"&gt;HTTPS for BlogSpot&lt;/a&gt; - and even farther before HTTPS for custom domains - was rolled out.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;This was shortly after we started observing other problems involved, in the deployment of HTTPS.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The first HTTPS issue &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2014/11/blogger-blog-readers-unable-to-comment.html"&gt;was reported in 2014&lt;/a&gt;.  HTTPS for BlogSpot &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2015/09/blogger-offers-https-for-blogspot.html"&gt;was rolled out in 2015&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I'm betting we first saw reports of the post URL being lost, in the ""http://xxxxxxx.whatever.com/whatever.html"  -&amp;gt; ...  -&amp;gt; "https://www.whatever.com"" was maybe 2 years ago.  During deployment of HTTPS.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;My guess is that Blogger Engineers upgraded the domain root servers ("A" address) redirection code, to support HTTPS - and made a business decision to use frame forwarding.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;From what I've seen of Blogger Engineering in general - and custom domain design in particular - I am convinced that if they decided that frame forwarding is necessary, &lt;b&gt;it's necessary&lt;/b&gt;.  Until they can correct the problem, that is.  My advice to every domain owner to &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2007/09/custom-domains-and-url-forwarding-bad.html"&gt;not use registrar supplied frame forwarding&lt;/a&gt; in the domain DNS, notwithstanding.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I can only hope that we will see this problem corrected, this decade.  Remain optimistic - and report the problem, when it can be identified.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;hr /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;It appears that some of the #Blogger custom domain "A" address name servers are using "Frame Forwarding", instead of "Referral", to redirect the domain root to the published URL.  Frame forwarding strips away the post address portion of the URL - leaving only the domain root. &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Some blog owners use the domain root to advertise their blog posts - and are seeing only the blog home page, instead of the individual posts, when linking to the posts.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;https://productforums.google.com/d/topic/blogger/NtQHoVNJ5PM/discussion&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;https://productforums.google.com/d/topic/blogger/pePwPhr_H-Y/discussion&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!category-topic/blogger/pePwPhr_H-Y&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!category-topic/blogger/nr-cIIgjBGg&lt;img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Nitecruzr-Blogging/~4/EZtUnoZPTyY" height="1" width="1" alt=""/&gt;</content><link rel="replies" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/feeds/2725946584775914718/comments/default" title="Post Comments" /><link rel="replies" type="text/html" href="http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=24069595&amp;postID=2725946584775914718" title="1 Comments" /><link rel="edit" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://www.blogger.com/feeds/24069595/posts/default/2725946584775914718" /><link rel="self" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://www.blogger.com/feeds/24069595/posts/default/2725946584775914718" /><link rel="alternate" type="text/html" href="http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Nitecruzr-Blogging/~3/EZtUnoZPTyY/custom-domain-redirection-and-referral.html" title="Custom Domain Redirection, And &quot;A&quot; Referral Servers" /><author><name>Nitecruzr</name><uri>http://www.blogger.com/profile/08069634565746003311</uri><email>[email protected]</email><gd:image rel="http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#thumbnail" width="16" height="16" src="https://img1.blogblog.com/img/b16-rounded.gif" /></author><media:thumbnail xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/" url="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-yTKpat3xu1Y/Wt1UUBz0Q4I/AAAAAAAAhhw/c5wszQkp4pgCCAbvrJGeViPJe1dptTEnQCLcBGAs/s72-c/Screenshot%2B2018-04-22%2Bat%2B20.25.20%2B-%2BEdited.png" height="72" width="72" /><thr:total>1</thr:total><feedburner:origLink>http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/08/custom-domain-redirection-and-referral.html</feedburner:origLink></entry><entry><id>tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-24069595.post-7466010387352483547</id><published>2018-07-20T15:22:00.003-07:00</published><updated>2018-07-22T02:30:13.800-07:00</updated><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Blogger Magic" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Browser Security" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Cookie Filters" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Cookies" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Filters" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="HTTPS" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="HTTPS Redirect" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Interstitial Warning" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Private Blogs" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="SSL" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Third Party Cookies" /><title type="text">"HTTPS Redirect" And Private Blogs</title><content type="html">URL redirection is a Blogger magic trick, similar to a common sleight of hand trick in stage magic performances.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The Blogger &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/03/https-availability-for-all-custom.html"&gt;HTTPS Redirection&lt;/a&gt;, a recently added feature in Blogger security, may be a similar Blogger magic trick - and a possible problem.  Some browsers treat websites with multiple redirects as possibly malicious.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Private blogs, accessed through &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2009/09/blogger-magic-interstitial-warning.html"&gt;the Blogger / Google interstitial login&lt;/a&gt;, may also complicate HTTPS Redirection.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name='more'&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Interstitial webpages may pop up like magic, where you (or your prospective viewer) would least expect them.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;In front of a "private" blog, where you have to identify yourself to continue.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;In front of a blog that contains (or is reputed to contain) objectionable material (naughty pictures or such).&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;In front of a blog that is (or appears to be) published off site.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;In front of a blog that has been blocked, for TOS violation, or maybe for hosting hacking content.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;br /&gt;One of the problems with HTTPS Redirection may involve private blogs.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;To access a private blog, you must be identified.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;To access a private blog, one must be logged into Blogger, using an account that is a member or owner of the blog.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"&gt;&lt;a href="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-dNNSZ3_t8ME/W1JsP5_xdRI/AAAAAAAAiHw/E1BRRUWTZW8coiBtq1yOWFNWI7LzhhbigCLcBGAs/s1600/Screenshot%2B2018-07-20%2Bat%2B16.10.45.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"&gt;&lt;img border="0" src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-dNNSZ3_t8ME/W1JsP5_xdRI/AAAAAAAAiHw/E1BRRUWTZW8coiBtq1yOWFNWI7LzhhbigCLcBGAs/s320/Screenshot%2B2018-07-20%2Bat%2B16.10.45.png" width="320" height="180" data-original-width="1366" data-original-height="768" /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;If you are not logged in to Blogger, you may be asked to identify yourself, to access the blog.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br clear=left /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"&gt;&lt;a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-efcRXhA2FS8/W1J8dcY_6OI/AAAAAAAAiII/cMod-vyfAHAANpAqg2ShJaZf_3Ta1jN1wCLcBGAs/s1600/Screenshot%2B2018-07-20%2Bat%2B17.20.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"&gt;&lt;img border="0" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-efcRXhA2FS8/W1J8dcY_6OI/AAAAAAAAiII/cMod-vyfAHAANpAqg2ShJaZf_3Ta1jN1wCLcBGAs/s320/Screenshot%2B2018-07-20%2Bat%2B17.20.png" width="320" height="180" data-original-width="1366" data-original-height="768" /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;If you are logged in to Blogger, but using a non member / owner account to access the blog, you may simply be refused access.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br clear=left /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Both of those displays come after the link to the blog - and before the blog is viewed.  They are called &lt;a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interstitial_webpage" target="_blank"&gt;"interstitial" webpages&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If you try to access a private blog, and are not a member / owner, you should see the well known Blogger / Google interstitial login webpage.  In order to check that you are a member / owner, the infamous Google Login Cookie must be accessed.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The Google Login Cookie, created under &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2014/02/access-to-your-blogger-account-using.html"&gt;the Google login sequence&lt;/a&gt; and accessed from a Blogger display, is &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2009/06/why-need-for-third-party-cookies-in.html"&gt;a "third party" cookie&lt;/a&gt;.  If the browser blocks "third party" cookies, as many do, the browser may refuse access to the private blog - even if the prospective reader is logged in to Blogger, as a member or owner.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;If third party cookies are not blocked, too many redirects may present a problem.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If third party cookies are not blocked, some browsers may still have a problem - too many redirects.  Some browsers may object to &lt;a href="https://moz.com/community/q/multiple-301-redirects-for-a-https-url-good-or-bad" target="_blank"&gt;multiple redirects to other websites&lt;/a&gt; - as possible malicious content.  A redirect to an interstitial display, following the "HTTP to HTTPS" redirect, may be one too many redirects.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The mysterious Blogger &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2009/09/blogger-magic-interstitial-warning.html"&gt;"private blog" interstitial display&lt;/a&gt;, which lets people login to a private blog when necessary, may contribute to the "too many redirects" problem, for browsers which are sensitive to multiple redirects.  Even if a private blog member / owner is logged in properly, the interstitial display is still involved, in checking for proper login - and this is where &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2014/10/interstitial-warnings-and-cookie-filters.html"&gt;the infamous "third party" cookie&lt;/a&gt; is involved.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;You may need to adjust your security settings, for best results.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If you are trying to access a private blog - and you see "This blog is open to invited readers only", or you are forced to login, again (!!), you will need to &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2016/04/blogger-magic-enabling-cookies-in-your.html"&gt;check and correct your cookie filters&lt;/a&gt;.  You might want to similarly &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2016/04/blogger-magic-enabling-scripts-in-your.html"&gt;check and correct your script filters&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Please remember that the filter that is affecting your private blog access - whether cookie or script - may not be part of &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2010/11/blogger-layered-security-and-you.html"&gt;your browser native settings&lt;/a&gt;.  Check thoroughly.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;hr /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;One of the challenges involved with the recently added #Blogger "HTTPS Redirect" may involve private blogs, and the Blogger private blog interstitial login.  "Third party cookie" filters, and the Blogger private blog interstitial login, will complicate this problem.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;https://productforums.google.com/d/topic/blogger/WiR84_IRF8w/discussion&lt;img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Nitecruzr-Blogging/~4/7zgQ6ozS6Ko" height="1" width="1" alt=""/&gt;</content><link rel="replies" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/feeds/7466010387352483547/comments/default" title="Post Comments" /><link rel="replies" type="text/html" href="http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=24069595&amp;postID=7466010387352483547" title="0 Comments" /><link rel="edit" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://www.blogger.com/feeds/24069595/posts/default/7466010387352483547" /><link rel="self" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://www.blogger.com/feeds/24069595/posts/default/7466010387352483547" /><link rel="alternate" type="text/html" href="http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Nitecruzr-Blogging/~3/7zgQ6ozS6Ko/https-redirect-and-private-blogs.html" title="&quot;HTTPS Redirect&quot; And Private Blogs" /><author><name>Nitecruzr</name><uri>http://www.blogger.com/profile/08069634565746003311</uri><email>[email protected]</email><gd:image rel="http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#thumbnail" width="16" height="16" src="https://img1.blogblog.com/img/b16-rounded.gif" /></author><media:thumbnail xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/" url="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-dNNSZ3_t8ME/W1JsP5_xdRI/AAAAAAAAiHw/E1BRRUWTZW8coiBtq1yOWFNWI7LzhhbigCLcBGAs/s72-c/Screenshot%2B2018-07-20%2Bat%2B16.10.45.png" height="72" width="72" /><thr:total>0</thr:total><feedburner:origLink>http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/07/https-redirect-and-private-blogs.html</feedburner:origLink></entry><entry><id>tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-24069595.post-4068067470182958232</id><published>2018-03-28T07:24:00.000-07:00</published><updated>2018-10-04T04:36:35.417-07:00</updated><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Blogger Milestones" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Custom Domain HTTPS" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Custom Domains" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Custom Domains SSL" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="HTTPS" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="HTTPS Redirect" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Owner Choice" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="SSL" /><title type="text">HTTPS Availability For All All Blogger Blogs</title><content type="html">After years of waiting, this blog is now readable, using HTTPS.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;This blog, and others published using properly setup custom domains, &lt;a href="https://blogging.nitecruzr.net/" target="_blank"&gt;now provides optional HTTPS connectivity&lt;/a&gt; - joining BlogSpot published blogs.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name='more'&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I looked at the Settings - Basic page of my Blogger dashboard, a couple hours ago.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Previously, I might see the HTTPS options "Availability" and "Redirect" &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/03/https-availability-for-custom-domain.html"&gt;when accessing my Draft Blogger dashboard&lt;/a&gt;.  Now, both are there, in Production Blogger.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If you publish a blog, using a custom domain URL, you should see the new option too.  It took 5 minutes, with my blog, to activate "HTTPS Availability".&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"&gt;&lt;a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-ZqQulFxemEc/WrtSXwdxZqI/AAAAAAAAhZI/S2gkuxmJrP0r5DUHJkjGggj6Ai49Jx7agCLcBGAs/s1600/Screenshot%2B2018-03-28%2Bat%2B01.27.24.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"&gt;&lt;img border="0" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-ZqQulFxemEc/WrtSXwdxZqI/AAAAAAAAhZI/S2gkuxmJrP0r5DUHJkjGggj6Ai49Jx7agCLcBGAs/s320/Screenshot%2B2018-03-28%2Bat%2B01.27.24.png" width="320" height="180" data-original-width="1366" data-original-height="768" /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;RBS is now secure!&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br clear=left /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;A couple hours ago, "HTTPS Availability" was offered, on my Blogger dashboard.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;There are two options - HTTPS Availability, and HTTPS Redirect.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;HTTPS Availability lets your readers access your blog, using HTTP or HTTPS, as they choose.  HTTPS Availability is now an option, for all blogs.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;HTTPS Redirect automatically requires all readers use HTTPS, to access your blog.  HTTPS Redirect is an option, with HTTPS Availability enabled.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"&gt;&lt;a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-GPliQ83hRDA/WrtQ72zJ9YI/AAAAAAAAhY0/SrBJiGJsk6sAFQD81TmAtde8w75oCQvuwCLcBGAs/s1600/Screenshot%2B2018-03-28%2Bat%2B01.21.10.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"&gt;&lt;img border="0" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-GPliQ83hRDA/WrtQ72zJ9YI/AAAAAAAAhY0/SrBJiGJsk6sAFQD81TmAtde8w75oCQvuwCLcBGAs/s320/Screenshot%2B2018-03-28%2Bat%2B01.21.10.png" width="320" height="180" data-original-width="1366" data-original-height="768" /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;HTTPS Availability is now an option!&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br clear=left /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;"HTTPS Availability" lets your readers, who use only HTTPS, connect to your blog.  It's the first step in upgrading the web.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"&gt;&lt;a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-m9wG4RybMSE/WrtQ7xY7cuI/AAAAAAAAhY4/yETw1pqcobAohKHqsUlViKmS87fjCcQggCLcBGAs/s1600/Screenshot%2B2018-03-28%2Bat%2B01.21.32.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"&gt;&lt;img border="0" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-m9wG4RybMSE/WrtQ7xY7cuI/AAAAAAAAhY4/yETw1pqcobAohKHqsUlViKmS87fjCcQggCLcBGAs/s320/Screenshot%2B2018-03-28%2Bat%2B01.21.32.png" width="320" height="180" data-original-width="1366" data-original-height="768" /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;So, it's selected - and now we wait.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br clear=left /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;When you enable "HTTPS Availability" for a custom domain published blog, Google will setup an SSL certificate for the domain - free of charge.  Just enable the option, and wait a few seconds - and your domain will be secure, with certificate.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"&gt;&lt;a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-9eWB4u3LcpI/WrtS7l2G8qI/AAAAAAAAhZU/LDjWwhe43QoOj7w5wThBZPf11KljWM8HACLcBGAs/s1600/Screenshot%2B2018-03-28%2Bat%2B01.26.23.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"&gt;&lt;img border="0" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-9eWB4u3LcpI/WrtS7l2G8qI/AAAAAAAAhZU/LDjWwhe43QoOj7w5wThBZPf11KljWM8HACLcBGAs/s320/Screenshot%2B2018-03-28%2Bat%2B01.26.23.png" width="320" height="180" data-original-width="1366" data-original-height="768" /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;Less than 5 minutes later, and I see the display updated.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br clear=left /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;"HTTPS Redirect" is now available, for this blog.  "HTTPS Redirect" automatically requires all of your readers to use HTTPS, when reading your blog.  It's the second step in upgrading the web.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;So "HTTPS Availability" is now a reality.  Common sense - and &lt;a href="https://support.google.com/blogger/answer/6286127" target="_blank"&gt;Blogger advice&lt;/a&gt; - tells me to take things slowly.  I'll still allow &lt;b&gt;HTTP&lt;/b&gt; connectivity, for &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2015/12/dont-force-your-readers-to-use-ssl.html"&gt;readers who can't use HTTPS&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I next need to setup Search Console entries for &lt;a href="https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6073543" target="_blank"&gt;this blog, using HTTPS&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;For best results, the domain needs to be &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2015/10/blogger-magic-how-to-setup-custom-domain.html"&gt;properly setup&lt;/a&gt;.  Both the &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2008/03/custom-domains-use-301-redirect-from.html"&gt;BlogSpot to domain redirection&lt;/a&gt;, and the &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2014/07/the-domain-root-naked-domain-may-not-be.html"&gt;domain root ("naked domain") to published URL redirection&lt;/a&gt;, can be complicated, with HTTPS offered for &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2008/12/your-blog-custom-domains-and-spurious.html"&gt;an improperly setup domain&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Also, remove any other custom installed redirecting code.  Both &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2016/02/custom-domain-publishing-and-alias.html"&gt;code blocking local country redirection&lt;/a&gt;, and &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2016/10/custom-domains-and-https-redirection.html"&gt;code blocking (or enabling) HTTPS redirection&lt;/a&gt;, will interfere with the HTTPS Redirect option.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;And check your non Blogger accessories and features carefully.  Blogger is not the last Internet service to provide this upgrade - and your blog will provide the best experience, for your readers, if &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2016/05/not-all-plugins-and-third-party-code.html"&gt;all accessories and features also support HTTPS&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Test the blog and domain, in the many URLs.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;With the blog published to the domain, and offering HTTPS connectivity, you'll have 6 URLs - all pointing to the blog.  Make sure that all 6 work properly.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Right now, my test blog does provide HTTPS connectivity / redirect - and similarly, &lt;a href="https://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/09/https-migration-managing-traffic.html"&gt;this blog now does&lt;/a&gt;.  Using my test blog, I have 6 URLs to check.  Note that this blog is published as "blogging.nitecruzr.net" - not "techdict.nitecruzr.net", or "www.nitecruzr.net".&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;ol&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;a href="http://myspaceandmore.blogspot.com" target="_blank"&gt;http://myspaceandmore.blogspot.com&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;a href="http://techdict.nitecruzr.net" target="_blank"&gt;http://nitecruzr.net&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;a href="http://techdict.nitecruzr.net" target="_blank"&gt;http://techdict.nitecruzr.net&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;a href="https://myspaceandmore.blogspot.com" target="_blank"&gt;https://myspaceandmore.blogspot.com&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;a href="https://techdict.nitecruzr.net" target="_blank"&gt;https://nitecruzr.net&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;a href="https://techdict.nitecruzr.net" target="_blank"&gt;https://techdict.nitecruzr.net&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ol&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Your readers will be happiest, if all 6 URLs work - and all redirect to your blog.  Again, your domain will probably use "www", in place of "blogging" or "techdict", in #3 and #6.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Be prepared to re publish the blog, for best results.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If you were using "HTTPS Redirect" for the BlogSpot URL, #2 and / or #5 many be "404". You may need to re publish the blog, and remove the BlogSpot "HTTP" to "HTTPS" redirect.  The domain root redirect, and "HTTPS Redirect" for the domain, may conflict.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both;

myblog.blogspot.com", yet "mydomain.com --&amp;gt; www.mydomain.com".&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Be careful when editing the pages / posts / template.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;One of the reasons why HTTPS took so long to be available with Blogger - and contrarily, why the entire web did not upgrade over night - is that other blogs and websites have not yet upgraded.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If your blog is to provide useful HTTPS connectivity, any accessories and features, that you depend on, must also offer HTTPS connectivity.  If a non HTTPS link is present, your readers will see &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2015/10/ssl-access-is-not-reality-for-all-blogs.html"&gt;scary advice about "mixed content", and "unsafe" web pages&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Blogger provides &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2016/04/blogger-provides-mixed-content.html"&gt;"mixed content" warnings, in page / post / template editor&lt;/a&gt;, when appropriate - but read their warning very very carefully.  Before you change a link from HTTP to HTTPS, you have to &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2016/05/not-all-plugins-and-third-party-code.html"&gt;verify that the accessory linked will provide HTTPS connectivity&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The "Fix" option in the page / post / template editor "mixed content" warning will break accessories that don't yet provide HTTPS connectivity.  Don't change links from HTTP to HTTPS, without verifying that they will support the change.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Understand the details, to ensure an effective migration.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If you can deal with the details, you'll have a secure domain - and you can now offer your readers SSL connectivity, to your custom domain published blog, using all 6 links above.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;hr /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;HTTPS Availability is now an option for all #Blogger blogs.  I'll continue to offer HTTP, for readers who can't use HTTPS - but those who require HTTPS can now use it, to access this blog - and other custom domain published blogs.&lt;img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Nitecruzr-Blogging/~4/3xsBoB0odGg" height="1" width="1" alt=""/&gt;</content><link rel="replies" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/feeds/4068067470182958232/comments/default" title="Post Comments" /><link rel="replies" type="text/html" href="http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=24069595&amp;postID=4068067470182958232" title="1 Comments" /><link rel="edit" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://www.blogger.com/feeds/24069595/posts/default/4068067470182958232" /><link rel="self" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://www.blogger.com/feeds/24069595/posts/default/4068067470182958232" /><link rel="alternate" type="text/html" href="http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Nitecruzr-Blogging/~3/3xsBoB0odGg/https-availability-for-all-custom.html" title="HTTPS Availability For All All Blogger Blogs" /><author><name>Nitecruzr</name><uri>http://www.blogger.com/profile/08069634565746003311</uri><email>[email protected]</email><gd:image rel="http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#thumbnail" width="16" height="16" src="https://img1.blogblog.com/img/b16-rounded.gif" /></author><media:thumbnail xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/" url="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-ZqQulFxemEc/WrtSXwdxZqI/AAAAAAAAhZI/S2gkuxmJrP0r5DUHJkjGggj6Ai49Jx7agCLcBGAs/s72-c/Screenshot%2B2018-03-28%2Bat%2B01.27.24.png" height="72" width="72" /><thr:total>1</thr:total><feedburner:origLink>http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/03/https-availability-for-all-custom.html</feedburner:origLink></entry><entry><id>tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-24069595.post-6543315175480675245</id><published>2018-03-19T14:52:00.001-07:00</published><updated>2018-03-19T18:30:55.571-07:00</updated><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Blog Feed" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Cache" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Cache Latency" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Feed" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Feed Cache" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Newsfeeds" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Posts Feed" /><title type="text">Edited Posts Will Not Produce Updated Newsfeed Content</title><content type="html">I've written a few posts about editing post content - and discuss clearing cache after editing, to see updates.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Generally, my posts reference cached posts content. Sometimes, blog owners need to clear cached feed content, in addition to / instead of clearing cached post content.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;There is a difference between post content, and newsfeed content - and how both are cached.  Newsfeed cache is not as frequent a concern.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name='more'&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;When we provide instructions to &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2014/11/clearing-cache-cookies-and-other.html"&gt;clear cached blog content&lt;/a&gt;, we reference browser cache.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;blockquote&gt;Clear cache - then restart the browser, and check again.&lt;/blockquote&gt;or maybe&lt;br /&gt;&lt;blockquote&gt;Clear cache, cookies, and sessions (yes, all 3) - then restart the browser, and check again.&lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Posts, updated after published, may create a problem with the posts newsfeed.&lt;/b&gt; &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;In some cases, updated posts may create an "out of sync" condition with the posts newsfeed, as well as the displayed content.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If comparing post content and feed content is important, you need to synchronize the newsfeed with the posts.  This will restart the newsfeed - and sync it with the posts.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;ol&gt;&lt;li&gt;Deactivate the blog feeds.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Publish a post - or delete a recently published post.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Reactivate the blog feeds.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ol&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Activate / Deactivate the blog feeds, using the "Allow Blog Feed" wizard.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The "Allow Blog Feed" wizard, on the dashboard Settings - Other page, in the "Site feed" section, is used to activate and deactivate the newsfeeds.&lt;br

clear=left /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;There are a few selections, in "Allow Blog Feed".  For consistent results, note what you have before Step #1 - and re select them after Step #3.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;This blog, like many others in Blogger, is "Always Under Construction".&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;This post, like many earlier ones, was just published.  Now, I plan to spend many long hours, reorganising and tweaking the content, phrasing, spelling, syntax - and correcting typos.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If you wish, you can &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2015/10/make-multiple-feedburner-feeds-for.html"&gt;subscribe to any of several posts newsfeeds&lt;/a&gt; - and compare the newsfeed content in each, with the displayed posts content.  The older any post is, the more changes will be made.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The more revisions I make, the less this post, and the posts feed, will match when compared.  Check it, for yourself.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Maybe one day, I will need the feed, in this blog, be accurately updated to compare more closely to the updated posts.  Many of my posts double in size, even after post publish edits are "complete".&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If you use email, and other feed subscriptions, to read new posts in this blog, you may be missing out on interesting details, added long after posts are published.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Newsfeed content is published once, as each post is published.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Post content may be out of sync with feed content, because post content and feed content is not updated at the same time.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;You can update your posts, when you wish.  Newsfeed updates are published when the posts are published - and the cached newsfeed is not updated, when you edit a post after it is published.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;When you synchronise published posts content with displayed content, you generally &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2010/11/clearing-browser-cache.html"&gt;clear browser cache&lt;/a&gt;.  Newsfeed cache is not in the browser - so the latter instructions won't help with newsfeed cache.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;That is the basic procedure for syncing the blog content, and feed content.  You may have other concerns, though, that might complicate the above procedure.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The procedure is exciting - but painless.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"&gt;&lt;a

all of 5 minutes, including making screen prints of my Reading List - before and after, to restart the newsfeeds.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;As always, I'll suggest that you Follow this post - and observe the changes.  And watch for changes (unlikely) to the newsfeed.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;hr /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Many #Blogger problems, when being diagnosed, start with advice to clear browser cache (maybe, cache, cookies, and sessions).  Not all problems involved the published posts - some involve the posts feed.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;You can't clear feed cache, as you can browser cache, because newsfeed content is not cached in the browser.  You can, however, force a newsfeed rebuild, by restarting the newsfeed.&lt;img

Readers In Multiple Languages</title><content type="html">Some blog owners speak / write in multiple languages - and want to interact with their different readers, separately, in each different language.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Blogger, and Google, support the need for publishing multiple blogs, each written in a different language.  The "hreflang" tag, added to a blog, identifies other blogs, published to different languages, with identical or similar content.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name='more'&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;There are three ways to provide content, in multiple languages.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;Publish one blog, with posts published in different languages.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Publish one blog, and add the Google Translate gadget.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Publish multiple blogs, one language / blog, linked using "hreflang".&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;br /&gt;You can publish a single blog with multiple posts written in different languages - if you wish.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Mixing multiple posts in different languages creates a compromise.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;One blog, mixing posts written in different languages, will be a compromise.  Each different world language has its own character set, phrasing, spelling, syntax, and other characteristics.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If you publish extensively, you will get better results publishing multiple blogs, each blog with content in one language.  Your readers will appreciate reading a blog, that's published in one language - their own language.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Best results come from multiple blogs, in one language for each blog.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Blogger lets us indicate a language for any blog, in Settings - Language and formatting.  One blog == one language.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If you want to publish content in multiple languages, and have everything properly indexed by the search engines, you can &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2015/05/publish-language-related-blog-cluster.html"&gt;create an "hreflang" blog cluster&lt;/a&gt; - with each blog published in its own language.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;To get the best result from "hreflang", you publish similar content, equally to each blog - and add  "hreflang" tags identically to each blog.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If I was tri-lingual, I could publish a set of blogs in English, French, and Spanish.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Si j'étais trilingue, je pourrais publier un ensemble de blogs en anglais, français et espagnol.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Si fuera trilingüe, podría publicar un conjunto de blogs en inglés, francés y español.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I could publish three blogs to BlogSpot.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;ol&gt;&lt;li&gt;en-blogging-nitecruzr.blogspot.com&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;fr-blogging-nitecruzr.blogspot.com&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;es-blogging-nitecruzr.blogspot.com&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ol&gt;&lt;br /&gt;In the template header, for each blog, I would &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2015/05/hreflang-and-language-region-based-blog.html"&gt;add three complementary tags&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;pre&gt;&amp;lt;link rel="alternate" hreflang="en" href="http://en-blogging-nitecruzr.blogspot.com/" /&amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;&amp;lt;link rel="alternate" hreflang="fr" href="http://fr-blogging-nitecruzr.blogspot.com/" /&amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;&amp;lt;link rel="alternate" hreflang="es" href="http://es-blogging-nitecruzr.blogspot.com/" /&amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/pre&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Multiple blogs, properly intercnnected, gives improved search results.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;As any one blog in the cluster is being indexed, the "href=" in the tags links to the other two blogs - just like any three blogs being cross linked.  This gives search indexing between all three blogs, equally.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;For improved search reputation, based on three "identical" blogs, this technique can't be beat.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;You can publish one blog, indexed in one language, and translated when needed.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;You don't have to use "hreflang", to publish content written in multiple languages.  If you only want to write in one language, and let readers to read your blog in their own language, you can use Google Translate.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Look in the sidebar, of this blog.  Google Translate ("Translate Me") lets every world resident read a blog in their own language - when they select their language.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Just add a Google Translate gadget to your one blog, using &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2016/05/blogger-magic-using-add-gadget.html"&gt;the "Add a Gadget" wizard&lt;/a&gt;, on the Layout dashboard page.  Each reader, surfing to your one blog, can use the gadget to translate to their language, as necessary - as long as they:&lt;br /&gt;&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;Understand the gadget header "Translate Me" (or however you name your gadget).&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Know to use the "Select Language" pull down list.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Know how to locate their own language in the list.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;The "Google Translate" gadget is labeled in English.  The French people use "français" when describing their naive tongue - and call our language "Anglais", not English.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The language list, in French, will be in a different order.  Other languages will be even more challenging.  If you examine a language list, on a blog written in Chinese, could you locate their label for "English"?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Writing in each different language is much more respectful, to people who don't read English.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;With a blog using Google Translate, the blog content is indexed, only using the published language.  Readers who don't read in your native language will never find your blog, when they search in their language.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;To index content in multiple languages, use "hreflang".&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If you want to develop a reader audience in multiple language groups, you can use "hreflang" to publish multiple blogs, each written and indexed in one specific language.   Each of your potential readers can search, in their own language, and find your blog.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;And none of your readers have to know - or care - that a blog is published in other languages.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;hr /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;There are several ways to provide blog content in multiple languages, depending upon how relevant you want to be, to your readers, in their various "foreign" languages - and how much work you are willing to do.&lt;img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Nitecruzr-Blogging/~4/n5QricL3pvY" height="1" width="1"

term="Traffic" /><title type="text">AdSense, Blogger Blogs, And Social Network Sharing</title><content type="html">Many people who publish blogs also have FaceBook pages - and one of the easiest ways to get traffic, to the blog, is to share the blog to a FaceBook page.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Some people want money for publishing their blogs.  AdSense is a very popular way to earn from publishing.  AdSense produces the best results, with lots of readers to read the blog, click on the ads, and buy the products and services advertised.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;FaceBook, and similar social network sharing services, is not the best choice for advertising a blog that uses AdSense ads.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name='more'&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;You can share your blog through social networks like FaceBook, if you wish.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If you emphasise social network sharing when advertising your blog, you will have a large, unfocused following population.  Many people who follow you won't be interested in the advertisements on the blog - and won't buy the products and services advertised.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name="Share"&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;FaceBook and Twitter can provide traffic - but is it the right traffic?&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Some people will use social sharing, and urge their friends to&lt;br /&gt;&lt;blockquote&gt;Read my blog - and Like my FaceBook page!&lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;br /&gt;This will simply send a lot of traffic to the blog, to have people "Like" their FaceBook page.  AdSense calls this invalid / low quality traffic - and &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2015/05/blogger-blogs-and-social-networking.html"&gt;rejects such blogs from their programme&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"&gt;&lt;a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-xHNpf7OGNGg/WL5RKorRSYI/AAAAAAAAeIU/uBEtBeWnjc0_T5x4tOjqFVD4xvVjg-pgwCLcB/s1600/Social-Networking%2B2.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"&gt;&lt;img border="0" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-xHNpf7OGNGg/WL5RKorRSYI/AAAAAAAAeIU/uBEtBeWnjc0_T5x4tOjqFVD4xvVjg-pgwCLcB/s320/Social-Networking%2B2.jpg" width="320" height="219" /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;Social networking, used to share a blog, sends lots of traffic to the blog - but is the traffic useful?.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br clear=left /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name="ShareRelevantly"&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Google+, and the search engines, can provide relevant traffic.&lt;/b&gt; &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;To develop a focused reader audience, publish informative, interesting, relevant, and unique posts.  That encourages search engine activity - and gets search related traffic.  If you emphasise search related traffic, you spend less time using FaceBook, and asking people to "Like" your blog.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Search related traffic targets the blog subject - and the ads provided by AdSense are &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2016/02/adsense-is-contextual-ad-hosting-service.html"&gt;relevant to the blog subject&lt;/a&gt;.  This produces readers who are &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2011/12/getting-traffic-to-your-blog-involves.html"&gt;interested in the blog subject&lt;/a&gt;, and in the ads - and who will click on the ads, read about the products and services, and buy the products and services advertised.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;With relevant traffic, the ad managers who provide the ads, for their company, are paid well - and &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2017/01/adsense-eligibility.html"&gt;AdSense can charge more for their ads&lt;/a&gt;, as the premium ad hosting service.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name="EncourageSharing"&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;You can encourage your readers to share your blog, as they like.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;This blog provides sharing to FaceBook, Google+, Pinterest, and Twitter - using two sharing toolbars.  The native Blogger toolbar is linked from the "Share" caption, at the bottom of each post.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I added the Blogger toolbar to this blog, using the "Show Share Buttons" selection in &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2012/05/setting-options-in-post-template.html"&gt;the "Configure Blog Posts" wizard&lt;/a&gt;.  Later, I added &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2015/10/adding-addthis-social-media-buttons-to.html"&gt;my personal AddThis toolbar&lt;/a&gt;, that floats in the left edge of each display.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Having added the toolbars, you have 8+ icons to choose from, to share this post and others.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I routinely share new posts in this blog, to FaceBook, Google+, and Twitter.  If this post, or any other, interests you, you are welcome to share to any of 4 social networks (linked from the Blogger toolbar), or any of 200 (linked from the AddThis toolbar).&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;You can encourage sharing by your readers - if you include the AddThis, Blogger, and other third party sharing toolbars, in your blog.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name="ShareSelectively"&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Use the social sharing buttons, if you wish - selectively.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Both search engines and social sharing have their advantages - and disadvantages.  You can get readers for your blog, using social networks - but try to get the right readers too.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;To get readers who click on the ads and buy the services and products advertised, publish &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2016/06/adsense-and-blogger-require-quality.html"&gt;quality content&lt;/a&gt; - and get the blog indexed by the search engines with good position.  Spend less time getting readers to "Like" your FaceBook page.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;hr /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;It's fun to advertise a #Blogger blog using social networking, like FaceBook - but if AdSense is part of the blog, you will get better results by publishing relevant and unique posts, and focusing on search engine indexing.&lt;img

Published Blogs</title><content type="html">After many years of waiting, people who publish blogs using custom domains can provide HTTPS connectivity, to their readers.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Right now, HTTPS Availability / Redirect can be enabled, for custom domain published blogs, using Draft Blogger.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name='more'&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Since Draft Blogger is used by Blogger for beta testing new features and problem fixes, you will do best &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2014/01/use-draft-blogger-to-diagnose-or-solve.html"&gt;using it selectively&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Use Draft Blogger only to enable HTTPS Availability / Redirect.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;In this case, you use draft Blogger only for enabling HTTPS for your custom domain URL.  This is &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2015/08/using-one-browser-in-ownership-transfer.html"&gt;a good time to use a second browser&lt;/a&gt; - either a different browser on this computer, any preferred browser on another computer, or this browser with an Incognito / Private window.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Start by &lt;a

/&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;With "HTTPS Availability" enabled, Blogger has to obtain an SSL Certificate for your domain.  This is not a casual formality.  With many domain registrations, you might pay extra for a certificate.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Once "HTTPS Availability" is activated, you'll have the "HTTPS Redirect" option.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Allow half an hour after enabling "HTTPS Availability", then refresh the display.  You should have "HTTPS Redirect" available - and if you wish, you can enable it.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator"

provide "HTTPS" connectivity.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If you enable "HTTPS Availability", and later "HTTPS Redirect", you'll probably have accessories and services that don't support HTTPS.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Be selective when you use Page / Post / Template Editor, and see suggestions to "Fix" all links that continue to reference "HTTP" connectivity.  If you routinely select "Fix" you will end up with broken links, for &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2016/05/not-all-plugins-and-third-party-code.html"&gt;accessories and services that have not been upgraded&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If you can deal with the details though, you'll have a secure domain - and you can now  &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/03/https-availability-for-all-custom.html"&gt;offer your readers SSL connectivity, to your custom domain published blog&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;hr /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If your #Blogger custom domain is setup properly, you can now offer HTTPS connectivity for your custom domain published blog.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;You should consider the redirects, and the different URLs involved, carefully.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;https://productforums.google.com/d/topic/blogger/RtzWu4CglrY/discussion&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br

elegante - for some blog owners.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Personally, I'm not convinced.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Hover the cursor in the scroll tab area, to get the tab to pop out.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If you use the Chrome browser, and the display content is longer (or wider) than one physical screen, you may not realise that.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name='more'&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Some people may think that part of their blog - their post - or their template - has been lost.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;But, look again.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both;

this is not a problem.  Start scrolling with the wheel, and the tab pops out.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;For folks who are accustomed to "grabbing" the tab, and dragging it downwards (sideways) to scroll, this is not a step forwards.  If you want to read text, that's above the bottom of the blog, how do you scroll left to right, while reading a long line of text?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Look at what our readers see.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"&gt;&lt;a

#@!!?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;At any rate, if you - or your readers - think that blog, post, or template content has mysteriously vanished, try using the scroll tab (if you can find the tab).  You may find the "missing" content, right in front of you.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;hr /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The Chrome Engineers recently added an elegant enhancement to their browser.  If you're not scrolling up and down (or right to left), you don't have to look at that nasty old scroll tab - even when using the #Blogger post editor.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I'm not convinced that this is a step forward.&lt;img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Nitecruzr-Blogging/~4/Qygmj9T9M3I" height="1" width="1" alt=""/&gt;</content><link rel="replies" type="application/atom+xml"

Please try again.&lt;/blockquote&gt;But the mystery does not end there.  Even seeing the error, a curious blog owner, refreshing the post as displayed, may find a surprise.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Even with the mysterious error displayed, repeatedly, the changes just made may be visible in the post.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name='more'&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;In some cases, a new post editor session - or the post display refreshed - will even show the changes made.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Even with the post editor showing&lt;blockquote&gt;An error occurred while trying to save or publish your post. Please try again.&lt;/blockquote&gt;you &lt;b&gt;may&lt;/b&gt; see your changes displayed, when you &lt;b&gt;refresh the displayed post&lt;/b&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I just updated my earlier post, &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2015/09/country-code-aliasing-is-solution-not.html"&gt;Country Code Aliasing Is A Solution - Not A Problem&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;My personal and recent experience.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"&gt;&lt;a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-te26WmSHlLE/Wk8aK_UjKaI/AAAAAAAAgtQ/AXaV6R2UslU4gqeZaIubOE14R7hI6EUTgCLcBGAs/s1600/Screenshot%2B2018-01-04%2Bat%2B22.16.44.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"&gt;&lt;img border="0" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-te26WmSHlLE/Wk8aK_UjKaI/AAAAAAAAgtQ/AXaV6R2UslU4gqeZaIubOE14R7hI6EUTgCLcBGAs/s320/Screenshot%2B2018-01-04%2Bat%2B22.16.44.png" width="320" height="180" data-original-width="1366" data-original-height="768" /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;The post, before being updated.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br clear=left /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I added the observation to the post&lt;blockquote&gt;Blogger has described the problem, as a solution to &lt;a href="https://googleblog.blogspot.com/2007/11/free-expression-and-controversial.html" target="_blank"&gt;free expression and controversial content&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;/blockquote&gt;to the post.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;I just updated my post.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"&gt;&lt;a href="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-AqOShyZbXwI/Wk8aKjDz-MI/AAAAAAAAgtM/SeXi79Y5xsQu8-YOrcUxmlIccf5GvFZlwCLcBGAs/s1600/Screenshot%2B2018-01-04%2Bat%2B22.15.40.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"&gt;&lt;img border="0" src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-AqOShyZbXwI/Wk8aKjDz-MI/AAAAAAAAgtM/SeXi79Y5xsQu8-YOrcUxmlIccf5GvFZlwCLcBGAs/s320/Screenshot%2B2018-01-04%2Bat%2B22.15.40.png" width="320" height="180" data-original-width="1366" data-original-height="768" /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;Post Editor, showing the added observation.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br clear=left /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Then, I clicked "Update" - and waited for an eternity.  No matter how many times I hit "Update", I see the same error.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;It's enough to make one pull hair, in anguish (as if, Chuck!).&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"&gt;&lt;a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-XZismN98f-s/Wk8aKxYEEII/AAAAAAAAgtU/3rorXQSISbgmytras4Dr5IY4Ewn4MQlYgCLcBGAs/s1600/Screenshot%2B2018-01-04%2Bat%2B22.16.12.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"&gt;&lt;img border="0" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-XZismN98f-s/Wk8aKxYEEII/AAAAAAAAgtU/3rorXQSISbgmytras4Dr5IY4Ewn4MQlYgCLcBGAs/s320/Screenshot%2B2018-01-04%2Bat%2B22.16.12.png" width="320" height="180" data-original-width="1366" data-original-height="768" /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;Post Editor, showing the added observation, after clicking "Update".&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br clear=left /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;But, the story does not end here.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"&gt;&lt;a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-09JYtgVlCm8/Wk8aLlhhOdI/AAAAAAAAgtY/U6ZtTFgOyaYs8UEv3JdudfwzM5C5ps6IACLcBGAs/s1600/Screenshot%2B2018-01-04%2Bat%2B22.17.58.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"&gt;&lt;img border="0" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-09JYtgVlCm8/Wk8aLlhhOdI/AAAAAAAAgtY/U6ZtTFgOyaYs8UEv3JdudfwzM5C5ps6IACLcBGAs/s320/Screenshot%2B2018-01-04%2Bat%2B22.17.58.png" width="320" height="180" data-original-width="1366" data-original-height="768" /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;The post, after being updated - even with the bogus error message displayed.&lt;br /&gt;Surprise!  See the added observation?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br clear=left /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Don't believe me?  Examine my post, &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2015/09/country-code-aliasing-is-solution-not.html"&gt;Country Code Aliasing Is A Solution - Not A Problem&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;If you see the error, don't give up!&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;So, if you edit your post, and having made the necessary changes, you see the bad news&lt;blockquote&gt;An error occurred while trying to save or publish your post.

but the navbar may continue to suggest that they remain loggedin.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;This problem may start with how we connect to Blogger, as part of &lt;a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_computing" target="_blank"&gt;the mysterious Internet cloud&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name='more'&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Blogger provides multiple connection points ("nodes") to their databases, through the Blogger / Google Content Distribution Network ("CDN"), in &lt;a href="https://cloud.google.com/about/locations/#network-tab" target="_blank"&gt;many different cities worldwide&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Generally, a blog owner will connect to Blogger, using the closest CDN node.  Thanks to Internet Protocol networking with &lt;a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multipath_routing" target="_blank"&gt;Multipath Routing&lt;/a&gt;, the "closest" node won't always be the node with the shortest distance, "as the crow flies", from the owner.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Determining logical distance between 2 computers involves more detail than simple geographical distance.  Some blog owners will be equally "close" to multiple nodes - and this is where the problem starts.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;All Blogger databases, in all CDN nodes, won't update immediately.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If a blog owner logs out from Blogger, when connected to one node, the Blogger database in other nodes won't always be updated immediately, to reflect the log out status.  The CDN nodes update each other periodically - and there is always going to be some delay between updates.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The logical distance between a blog owner and a nearby node can change - and a different node may become "closer", at any time.  With multiple nodes equally "close", the slightest change in the network between the blog owner and any "close" nodes can make the blog owner connect to a different node.  The blog owner can fluctuate between 2, 3, or more "close" nodes, within seconds. &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If the blog owner logs out while connected to one node, then re connects to a second node - before the first node updates with the second - the owner will appear to be still logged in.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Different CDN nodes may show a blog owner as logged in, until updated.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;In some cases, the owner can continue to appear as "logged in", when connected to a different node.  After logout (&lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2015/03/how-to-logout-from-your-blogger-account.html"&gt;log out, signout, sign out&lt;/a&gt;) using the "Sign out" link, and the display refreshes, the navbar status will continue to display the account name and "Sign out" link.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Some blog owners will be equally "close" to multiple nodes.  They may go through 2, 3, or more sign outs - until all nearby nodes are properly updated, or updated by repeated "Sign out".&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name="Location"&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Long ago, update delay led to a different mysterious problem.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Long ago, blog owners reported &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2013/09/confusion-from-message-you-have-logged.html"&gt;the mysterious advice&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;blockquote&gt;You have logged out from another location. Do you want to log in again?&lt;/blockquote&gt;Now, they continue to see the navbar "Sign out" link.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"&gt;&lt;a href="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-i36XNoIhjtE/WpmzbvgMkLI/AAAAAAAAhGw/KokRjyMcP_s0DmsHHKCx8KuMylDqHSz9QCLcBGAs/s1600/Screenshot%2B2018-03-02%2Bat%2B12.19.13%2B-%2BEdited.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"&gt;&lt;img border="0" src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-i36XNoIhjtE/WpmzbvgMkLI/AAAAAAAAhGw/KokRjyMcP_s0DmsHHKCx8KuMylDqHSz9QCLcBGAs/s320/Screenshot%2B2018-03-02%2Bat%2B12.19.13%2B-%2BEdited.png" width="320" height="213" data-original-width="557" data-original-height="371" /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;This monolithic error used to make many scream, in anguish.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br clear=left /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Previous advice, to workaround the mysterious "You have logged out from another location.

just as I updated this post.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br clear=left /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;There's nothing to do now, but hope for the best.  The &lt;a href="#Location"&gt;above procedure&lt;/a&gt; may or may not fix this problem.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Page / Post / Template / Theme editor will be subject to the same frustration.  Any Blogger dashboard change that involves significant delay between opening and saving changes (such as editing) will have a similar problem potential.  And here may be one more detail that affects stability of &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2015/12/dont-use-draft-mode-post-editor-for.html"&gt;long term draft mode post editor sessions&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If you connect to multiple CDN nodes, one at a time, while you update a post or edit a template, you end up with "&lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2011/08/conflicting-edits-and-login-loops-two.html"&gt;conflicting edits&lt;/a&gt;".  How should we expect post editor to update your post (page / template / theme), safely, with different content in the different Blogger database nodes?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Some blog owners connect through nodes in different countries.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;With "nearby" nodes in different countries, it's possible that &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2012/06/country-code-aliases-have-real-purpose.html"&gt;country local domains&lt;/a&gt;, affected by &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2012/02/country-code-based-aliases-will.html"&gt;intrusive cookie or script filters&lt;/a&gt;, can complicate this problem.  A cookie or script filter can prevent the "Sign out", until the blog owner is connected to a node in a different country.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;A cookie or script filter can be a part of many &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2010/11/blogger-layered-security-and-you.html"&gt;network, performance, or security accessories&lt;/a&gt;, on the computer or network.  Some filters are updated &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2014/01/almost-nobody-controls-their-own.html"&gt;without knowledge of the blog or computer owner&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Network connections may change in milliseconds.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Multipath routing can cause network connection changes within milliseconds.  CDN node updates won't be that frequent.  Impatient blog owners may observe the lack of update from "Sign out", and report the problem.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;blockquote&gt;Why would I have to sign out a total of three or more times?&lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;br /&gt;No matter where Google locates their many nodes, some blog owners will be equally "close" to multiple nodes - and their connections can change frequently.  The more equally "close" nodes, the more random path changes, and the more this problem will be seen, by different blog owners.  Other blog owners won't care, because they may never see this happen.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;The new "Responsive" templates may serve as a solution.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The new, "Responsive" class templates lack the navbar, with the "Sign out" link.  Blog owners, who publish their blogs to the new templates, won't use the "Sign out" link in the navbar - and they will not observe the delay in CDN node updates.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;This won't fix the instability in Page / Post / Template / Theme Editor, however.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;hr /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Some blog owners report that after logging out from #Blogger, the navbar continues to show that they remain logged in.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Thanks to the Blogger / Google Content Distribution Network, where an owner can connect to any of many different nearby CDN Nodes, this will probably always be with us.&lt;img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Nitecruzr-Blogging/~4/I3PogbvIWpU" height="1" width="1" alt=""/&gt;</content><link rel="replies" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/feeds/8475252218485165838/comments/default" title="Post Comments" /><link rel="replies" type="text/html" href="http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=24069595&amp;postID=8475252218485165838" title="0 Comments" /><link rel="edit" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://www.blogger.com/feeds/24069595/posts/default/8475252218485165838" /><link rel="self" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://www.blogger.com/feeds/24069595/posts/default/8475252218485165838" /><link rel="alternate" type="text/html" href="http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Nitecruzr-Blogging/~3/I3PogbvIWpU/the-blogger-google-cdn-and-logout.html" title="The Blogger / Google CDN, And Logout Problems" /><author><name>Nitecruzr</name><uri>http://www.blogger.com/profile/08069634565746003311</uri><email>[email protected]</email><gd:image rel="http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#thumbnail" width="16" height="16" src="https://img1.blogblog.com/img/b16-rounded.gif" /></author><media:thumbnail xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/" url="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-i36XNoIhjtE/WpmzbvgMkLI/AAAAAAAAhGw/KokRjyMcP_s0DmsHHKCx8KuMylDqHSz9QCLcBGAs/s72-c/Screenshot%2B2018-03-02%2Bat%2B12.19.13%2B-%2BEdited.png" height="72" width="72" /><thr:total>0</thr:total><feedburner:origLink>http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/03/the-blogger-google-cdn-and-logout.html</feedburner:origLink></entry><entry><id>tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-24069595.post-3072320411679645854</id><published>2018-02-20T12:09:00.002-08:00</published><updated>2018-02-20T19:26:07.724-08:00</updated><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Anonymity" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Choice" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Dashboard" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Dashboard -

Basic page, and Edit the Privacy setting.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br clear=left /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"&gt;&lt;a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-17NAXbd4tk0/Wor6jgxad-I/AAAAAAAAg_I/kjPenqVpT2cSlC3pGzkRGudi6pOtMEnxwCLcBGAs/s1600/Screenshot%2B2018-02-19%2Bat%2B08.24.38.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"&gt;&lt;img border="0" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-17NAXbd4tk0/Wor6jgxad-I/AAAAAAAAg_I/kjPenqVpT2cSlC3pGzkRGudi6pOtMEnxwCLcBGAs/s320/Screenshot%2B2018-02-19%2Bat%2B08.24.38.png" width="320" height="180" data-original-width="1366" data-original-height="768" /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;Select "Yes" for both options - if you want the blog indexed.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br clear=left /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Select "Yes" for both options, if you want the blog indexed.  This is how you start getting search traffic, and readers, for your blog.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;Add your blog to our listings?&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Let search engines find your blog?&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;And click "Save changes".&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Having made the blog visible to the search engines, continue by publishing lots of &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2016/06/adsense-and-blogger-require-quality.html"&gt;informative, interesting, and unique content&lt;/a&gt;.  Make it a blog that &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2014/12/why-do-you-publish-blogger-blog.html"&gt;people will read&lt;/a&gt; - and that &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2011/12/getting-traffic-to-your-blog-involves.html"&gt;search engines will index&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If you prefer the blog to be invisible or private, on the other hand, select "No" for both options.  Then continue by &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2009/11/blogging-anonymously.html"&gt;developing your private audience&lt;/a&gt;, as you like.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;There are more settings - for owners who want to fine tune search engine access.  Both the Blogger dashboard Settings - "Search preferences" page, and the &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2008/05/google-webmaster-tools.html"&gt;"Google Search console"&lt;/a&gt; (previously known as "Webmaster Tools"), have a rich collection of settings, complementing "Privacy".&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If you really want to fine tune these settings, look at the Settings - "Search preferences" page, and the "Crawlers and indexing" section - but read and heed the serious advice.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;blockquote&gt;Warning! Use with caution. Incorrect use of these features can result in your blog being ignored by search engines.&lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;br /&gt;You can read more advice in Blogger: &lt;i&gt;&lt;a href="https://support.google.com/blogger/answer/41373" target="_blank"&gt;Help people find your blog on search engines&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/i&gt; - and Webmasters: &lt;i&gt;&lt;a href="https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/7451184" target="_blank"&gt;Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Starter Guide&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/i&gt;.  And you'll find Webmaster Central: &lt;a href="https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!categories/webmasters/crawling-indexing--ranking" target="_blank"&gt;Crawling, Indexing, and Ranking&lt;/a&gt; and Webmaster Central: &lt;a href="https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!categories/webmasters/webmaster-tools" target="_blank"&gt;Search Console&lt;/a&gt; useful for personal advice, complementing Blogger Help Forum.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Since Webmaster Forums supports owners of static websites, as well as owners of Blogger blogs (and other blogs), not all Search Console / Webmaster advice and tools will be useful for Blogger blogs. Be selective when considering Webmaster instructions - and ask questions in &lt;a href="https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!categories/blogger" target="_blank"&gt;Blogger Help Forum&lt;/a&gt;, any time you feel the need.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The "Privacy" wizard is where you start - and similarly &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2014/03/blogger-magic-robotstxt-file.html"&gt;where some blog owners should stop&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;hr /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The Blogger "Privacy" wizard, on the "Basic" Settings page, provides the start to getting a blog indexed by the search engines - when we want a blog indexed.  Not all blog owners want their blog indexed - and that need makes the "Privacy" settings relevant.&lt;img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Nitecruzr-Blogging/~4/QC9fP_gBMZk" height="1" width="1" alt=""/&gt;</content><link rel="replies" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/feeds/3072320411679645854/comments/default" title="Post Comments" /><link rel="replies" type="text/html" href="http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=24069595&amp;postID=3072320411679645854" title="0 Comments" /><link rel="edit" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://www.blogger.com/feeds/24069595/posts/default/3072320411679645854" /><link rel="self" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://www.blogger.com/feeds/24069595/posts/default/3072320411679645854" /><link rel="alternate" type="text/html" href="http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Nitecruzr-Blogging/~3/QC9fP_gBMZk/make-your-blog-searchable-where-to-start.html" title="Make Your Blog Searchable - Where To Start" /><author><name>Nitecruzr</name><uri>http://www.blogger.com/profile/08069634565746003311</uri><email>[email protected]</email><gd:image rel="http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#thumbnail" width="16" height="16" src="https://img1.blogblog.com/img/b16-rounded.gif" /></author><media:thumbnail xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/" url="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-JVIvN454T8Q/Wor6jutbk3I/AAAAAAAAg_E/5X9KQZst0q4sIE3CHO8AWh0DWLODSjmoQCLcBGAs/s72-c/Screenshot%2B2018-02-19%2Bat%2B08.24.31.png" height="72" width="72" /><thr:total>0</thr:total><feedburner:origLink>http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2018/02/make-your-blog-searchable-where-to-start.html</feedburner:origLink></entry><entry><id>tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-24069595.post-8797655413879787515</id><published>2018-02-03T20:59:00.001-08:00</published><updated>2018-10-30T14:26:32.936-07:00</updated><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Blog Template" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Choice" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Contempo" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Dashboard" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Dashboard - Template" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Dashboard - Theme" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Emporio" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Milestones" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Notable" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Owner Choice" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Responsive Template" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Responsive Templates" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Soho" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Template" /><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="Theme" /><title type="text">The Real Blogger Status Moves Into The Future</title><content type="html">Earlier this year, I took a leap into the future, and upgraded this blog to use a "Responsive" class template.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;There are four "Responsive" templates - Contempo, Soho, Emporio, and Notable.  The differences between the four include more than merely the visible design.  &lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name='more'&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;My serious opinion about template choice is that two people, each starting a blog about the same subject, and using the same source of content, will still have different perspectives - and each will probably choose a different template.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Anybody who asks me, bluntly&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;blockquote&gt;Which template is a better choice, for my blog?&lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Gets my facetious reply&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;blockquote&gt;Whatever template encourages you to write more original and quality content, in your blog, is best for your blog.&lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;br /&gt;It's your blog.  Your blog is valuable, &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2009/05/value-of-your-blog-is-based-upon.html"&gt;because of the content&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both;

being an enhanced version of "We're sorry, but we were unable to complete your request.", &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2008/12/why-isnt-blogger-solving-another-blog.html"&gt;"Error 12" (and variants)&lt;/a&gt; is an enhanced version of the monolithic "Another blog or Google Site is already using this address.".&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;"Another blog" (which was generally seen during use of the Blogger Publishing wizard) is complemented by the equally annoying &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2008/11/why-isnt-google-solving-server-not.html"&gt;"Not found"&lt;/a&gt; (which is generally seen after Publishing is used).&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a name='more'&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The "Another blog ..." / "Not Found" condition is not desirable - for a working domain.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The condition, in general, appears to be an unavoidable result of the flexible Blogger custom domain design.  A Blogger custom domain published blog can be one host in &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2008/04/make-blogger-blog-cluster.html"&gt;a domain cluster&lt;/a&gt;, that can also include a Tumblr blog, a WordPress blog, any number of third party hosted websites - and even &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2008/06/adding-forum-to-your-blog.html"&gt;an odd feature like a forum&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Blogger custom domain publishing is a powerful feature.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Blogger custom domains can be purchased from (almost) any registrar - and can use DNS provided by (virtually) any DNS host.  It's more powerful than competing Internet services.  Use of &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2010/02/blogger-magic-custom-domain-redirects.html"&gt;"CNAME" referral&lt;/a&gt;, to connect the blog and domain, is innovative, and smart.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Custom domain publishing does some of the domain processing from your computer - instead of solely from Google.  Use of your computer, unfortunately, involves &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2007/04/your-computer-and-blogger.html"&gt;computers and networks uncontrolled by Google&lt;/a&gt; - and may lead to occasional database corruption, and to "Another blog".  Custom domain publishing depends upon DNS - and DNS is an Internet service &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2010/12/your-domain-and-cast-of-dns-servers.html"&gt;controlled by neither Google or any blog owner&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;"Another blog" and "Not found" are two displays, caused by one problem.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The mysterious "&lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2008/11/why-isnt-google-solving-server-not.html"&gt;Server Not Found&lt;/a&gt;", seen occasionally, is similar to the classic "Another blog ..." error.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;In many cases, righteous DNS addressing is present - but broken links, in the Google database, leave the blog displayed as “Not found”.  "Another blog" is seen by the blog owner, when publishing - and "Not found" is typically seen by would be blog readers, and search engines, after publishing.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;An experienced blog owner would generally prefer the former, to the latter.  The owner, when seeing "Another blog", can fix the problems - so prospective readers and search engines can view the blog, without seeing "Not Found".&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;"Error 12" is the best known, but not the only, "Error".&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;"Error 12" is the best known "Error" - but not the only one.  There appear to actually be several dozen different variants of "Error 12", which refer to problems with the Publishing dashboard wizard.  We've seen "Error 32", at least.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;32 "Error" codes is nowhere as complex as 36^6 "bX" codes - but it's a start.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both;

was needed, when publishing to newly setup domains.  We have, during the past year, seen reports of Publishing problems labeled "&lt;a href="https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topicsearchin/blogger/%22Error$2013%22" target="_blank"&gt;Error 13&lt;/a&gt;", "&lt;a href="https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topicsearchin/blogger/%22Error$2014%22" target="_blank"&gt;Error 14&lt;/a&gt;", and "&lt;a href="https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topicsearchin/blogger/%22Error$2032%22" target="_blank"&gt;Error 32&lt;/a&gt;".&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;"Error 12", in reality, is not an actual error condition - it is simply a domain, requiring &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2012/09/what-is-this-new-cname-anyway.html"&gt;normal ownership verification&lt;/a&gt;.  Recently, the "Error 12" label was removed from the "domain ownership verification is needed" display - and now, we simply see the label "Third party domain settings".&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;"Error 13", "Error 14", and "Error 32" appear to also involve domain ownership verification - but with slightly different circumstances.  There may also be some "Error" numbers which involve features other than domain ownership verification.  And some "bX" codes are caused by bogus DNS addressing, encountered during custom domain publishing - like various "Error" codes.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"&gt;&lt;a href="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-zTiCnQuWZlY/WaUyWFdmEnI/AAAAAAAAfvI/55Mq0QxsSDcQ3u45026dW4foMlItpB7oQCLcBGAs/s1600/Screenshot%2B2017-08-29%2Bat%2B02.15.45.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left;

- with a new BlogSpot URL involved.  After Blogger tuned the verification process, we noted that the second "CNAME" is only required for &lt;a href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2014/09/custom-domains-do-not-always-need.html"&gt;a new, unverified domain&lt;/a&gt; - and not always that, either.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;With the "Error 12" designation retired, the other Publishing "Error" labels reference actual error conditions - and may offer more diagnostic ability than the monolithic "Another blog".&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;For people fortunate to be able to use Google Domains, purchase and setup of a non BlogSpot address is slowly becoming a project more doable by blog owners, instead of by tech experts.  And the "Error 12" variants will make diagnosis of common publishing errors more possible.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;hr /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;When Blogger added domain ownership verification to the custom domain publishing process in 2012, blog owners started seeing the mysterious "Error 12", suggesting that ownership verification was required.  We've seen various other "Error" codes in the past 5 years, - some also referencing ownership verification, and others referencing other publishing problems.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;It appears that the various "Error" codes are used to identify problems encountered in the Publishing wizard, similar to how the bX codes are used to identify problems in Blogger, in general.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a href="https://productforums.google.com/d/topic/blogger/3Rb3E08zHKk/discussion" target="_blank"&gt;https://productforums.google.com/d/topic/blogger/3Rb3E08zHKk/discussion&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a href="https://productforums.google.com/d/topic/blogger/EBhTkj_gdnY/discussion" target="_blank"&gt;https://productforums.google.com/d/topic/blogger/EBhTkj_gdnY/discussion&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;hr /&gt;&lt;img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Nitecruzr-Blogging/~4/8eKX7ZOGDAg" height="1" width="1" alt=""/&gt;</content><link rel="replies" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/feeds/4950435957426466129/comments/default" title="Post Comments" /><link rel="replies" type="text/html" href="http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=24069595&amp;postID=4950435957426466129" title="0 Comments" /><link rel="edit" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://www.blogger.com/feeds/24069595/posts/default/4950435957426466129" /><link rel="self" type="application/atom+xml" href="http://www.blogger.com/feeds/24069595/posts/default/4950435957426466129" /><link rel="alternate" type="text/html" href="http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Nitecruzr-Blogging/~3/8eKX7ZOGDAg/what-is-mysterious-custom-domain-error.html" title="What Is The Mysterious Custom Domain &quot;Error 12&quot;?" /><author><name>Nitecruzr</name><uri>http://www.blogger.com/profile/08069634565746003311</uri><email>[email protected]</email><gd:image rel="http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#thumbnail" width="16" height="16" src="https://img1.blogblog.com/img/b16-rounded.gif" /></author><media:thumbnail xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/" url="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ESBig994I_A/WaU3RIhOPTI/AAAAAAAAfvg/kVvoM_P8XCMefrDZFUgNVNJ2fDa6-laYgCLcBGAs/s72-c/Screenshot%2B2017-08-29%2Bat%2B02.40.54%2B-%2BEdited.png" height="72" width="72" /><thr:total>0</thr:total><feedburner:origLink>http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2017/08/what-is-mysterious-custom-domain-error.html</feedburner:origLink></entry></feed>
