Today, all our blogger blogs were down for 2 hours. This issue was resolved after entering mobile verification code for re-activating my Google account which was disabled temporarily. I apologize if it causes any inconvenience to our blog readers.
I don't know why my Google Account was temporarily disabled. By doing Google search, I came to know about two possible reasons for this issue. One is Spam. I don't think it is the reason in our case. Because we are not publishing any spam content.
Next reason is security purpose. In this case I would like to thank Google for protecting my Google Account. If you have faced any similar issue you can share it thro' the comments section.
This issue reminded me another issue which continues for more than 3 months.
One of our blogger blog (http://medicalnewsarchive.blogspot.com/) was locked before 3 months. I had taken initiative to restore it back.
I entered the captcha security code many times. But it didn't help. And, I tried all steps (e.g making entry in google spreadsheet) discussed in Google support forum.
Even, I opened a new thread in Google support forum.
On 11/18/09, I posted below message in this thread.
I didn't get any proper reply even after completing all the steps suggested in Google support forum. So, today I have updated the forum thread with below message.
Really, I couldn't understand why Google is not taking any steps for restoring the locked blog, while it used to behave very smart in all other situations especially in taking steps to protect our Google accounts.
I used to wonder the smart behavior of Google in its other products such as Gmail, AdSense and adWords.
