    Hello mates.

    Yesterday I was looking for some really specific information online (about my own university) and I found a deleted .blogspot.com blog where I could register the subdomain for myself.
    I mean, it was NOT the old "Sorry, the blog at xxx.blogspot.com has been removed. This address is not available for new blogs.". This was actually avaible for new blogs...

    Anyway, I went there, registered the domain and redirected it to a Zazzle's affiliate page selling merchandise from that university...in 1 day I received about 50 visitor and sold a T-Shirt, lol.


    But damn, I forget to take a look on the message the blog was showing...saying that it was avaible to register and these things...

    I searched online for about 30 minutes to find it, and all I find is things like "you can just reactivate a blogspot with the original creator account"...but I have registered it yesterday, so I think some blogs are really deleted and free up space...

    What's the message that blogspot gives when I can register the address??


    Thanks!!

    And damn google already cached the new page, so I can't see what was there before lol.
    When I want google indexing my pages it doesn't. When I redirect a new blog, it index. hahaha

    Get your own domain.The thing happened with me before .In starting i built a blog and displayed adsense.When i removed adsense and started selling ad space for advertisements.Blogger removed my blog ,they claimed it is spam blog.If you have own domain then you will have full control.Dont trust blogger.
