    I created a few blogs on blogger.com and after 4 days I recieved emails for all of them saying

    "Your blog, at [blah blah blah], has been identified as a potential spam blog"

    I didn't have any links or anything related to spam on these blogs. it was pure content that I gathered from sources on the internet.

    Does anyone know how blogger auto flags blogs as spam?

    It very well may have been someone who just came upon your blog and decided to flag it as Spam by clicking the "Flag Blog" link at the top of every Blogger page.

    I dont think it was the flag button because ALL of my blogs were identified as spam. I had more than a few it was about 30 created by different users.

    if it wasn't an actual person that flagged em, then maybe it was because you created so many...

    how many blogs did you make a day? were all 30 made in the same day and if so, sis you space them out?

    did you use a proxy when making your different usernames and the blogs?

    if Blogger noticed that all or most of your blogs came from the same IP, then no matter how good your content was, they will get deleted.

    also, if Blogger noticed that your blogs were all made in a very short amount of time, that is another red flag. you will get deleted.

    Blogger is just like any site these days. with the rise in spamming, many sites like Blogger, Squidoo, WP, Hubpages, etc are upping their game. so you have to make sure you take the necessary steps in order to ensure that you can make good use of these sites. in no way am I saying to go out and spam. but since there is ALOT of spammers out there, you have to take responsibility to make sure you don't raise any red flags.

    use a proxy, don't just go out and build a bunch of blogs all at once. the more anonymous you are, the better you'll be.

    Also, did you copy the content word-for-word?

    I copied the content but I put some random hidden text in between. I probably created about 3 or 4 per IP per day. Im starting over and im creating 1 per IP per day now.

    I just thought you guys might know some rules to posting blogs there. do the blogs from bloggenerator get auto flagged?

    Also the blogger accounts were from gmail accounts I had purchased last year, I just did the create a new account using your gmail login info.
