    I plan on removing the navbar. Does google ban blogger blogs unjustly often?

    I wanted to use blogger as a free blogging platform.

    Will blogger be ok to host my micro niche sites?

    Google owns Blogger so I don't think they will ban blogger blogs unjustly unless you violated their TOS. I think it's fine to use blogger to host your MNS.

    I'm using blogger because its free and easy to set up though I prefer Wordpress because of its abundant plugins but sometimes if you're not making enough money out of your blog, you tend to stay away from wordpress because you have to fork out money for the hosting. With regards to your question if ever Google(bloggger) will ban your site, they will only do that if its used for questionable topics.

    I've been using blogger for years and so far it is ok and you can have PR in a month. But if you are looking for more traffic I suggest wordpress, i have more traffic in wordpress compared to Blogspot/blogger although my PR in blogspot is higher than my wordpress. I don't think Google will ban you as long as you follow their TOS.

    By the way, removing blogger's navbar is against their TOS but I haven't heard somebody banned for doing that. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Actually google has said in the past, that you are allowed to remove the navbar.

    Yeah your wrong. If you host the blog yourself the option is there to turn the navbar off or if you use the old style template.

    I think the navbar is not that bad, they have added the option to follow blogs so I turned mine back on

    blogger is great to hosting sites on. Many people are familiar with them and they rank just as well as a unique domain.

    You can use custom templates and remove the bar. Just don't make a spam blog, they have pretty aggressive bots that will remove your blog. I say aggressive because I'd had legit blogs removed before (too many affiliate links I gathered) and they're next to impossible to get reinstated.

    haven't heard of that. They dont ban any blogs just for removing the navbar. I am having several blogger blogs and ranking well in google and none of them have navbar. So no question about that.

    I have used it for some of my MNS.

    it's easy to setup and free, so we can take a lot of advantages by using blogger.

    Good Luck

    I have been using blogspot platform for more than 3 years. removing Navbar is against the TOS they say but its all bullshit coz since 3 years nothing happened. But i should say recently i have seen a lot of blogspot blogs getting deleted for abuse and copyright infringement so be careful on that..
