    I made a blogger bot hoping to get some blogs up and running although I've run into a little hitch. At first I tried making some hotmails + adwords accounts and opening blogger up with them. But after a blog or two it would lock the account and ask for phone verification.

    I decided to just buy some PVA's after that. Sadly the same thing, after making a few blogs, the account gets locked saying theres unusual activity asking me to send phone verification to unlock. I've tried with 4 of the accounts so far and its all the same thing. Any ideas?

    It's most likely the bot being detected no ?

    Do you change IP and clear cookies every time you set up a new one? I had a bunch of accounts locked when I started out, because I created them all over the same IP.

    You also need private proxies to prevent Google from linking all your accounts together and locking them.
    And be sure to clear cookies via CCleaner

    I've cleared cookies, but not using CCleaner. I know they get rid of flash cookies maybe thats whats happening. As for changing IP addresses I have HMA VPN, but I really don't want to go down the private proxy route as that gets expensive.

    I don't think its my bot as I've run it through an aged old account of mine just fine using a HMA VPN proxy and filled my blogs up all the way to the 100 limit. I'll test those other things out though!

    Just tried running CCleaner, changing new IP within HMA VPN. After about 40 blogs the account was locked and asked for phone verification :(

    What could be connecting you to these accounts? You're more than likely being hit by some form of automatic blacklist scan. There must be some common piece between your accounts.

    The phone number used for verification
    The content you're posting is identical or close to the content used in a blacklisted blog
    etc

    Just imagine how you would catch someone if you needed to. You're either falling into their system to catch a blacklisted account OR they've detected the footprint of your bot and you'll need to take a totally different approach.

    It's also worth noting that they're able to tell that you're using a VPN, this could be setting off flags to look into your content a bit more closely. You should try at least one private proxy after completely cleaning and changing everything you're posting.

    My best guess is that is also the VPN since tons of people use google accounts and other google things on the same VPN. I don't want to go down the route of buying unique proxies for each account as i'm only doing tests with this method to see if its even worth while.
