Learn about content removal on Blogger

Google Blogger supports free expression in blogs, but some of the content might be removed.

What types of content might be removed

  • Content that violates the Google Terms of Service or the Blogger content policy, like Hate Speech or Terrorist Activities, might be removed.
  • If we receive a request to remove content that violates local law, that content might not be available to residents of countries where such laws apply.

What happens when content is removed from Google

  • Google notifies any account administrators by email and a message is available on their Blogger dashboard.
  • All readers that attempt to access the blog receive a message which indicates that the content has been removed. 
  • A copy of the removal notice we receive that's related to Blogger might be sent to the Lumen database for publication on their website.
  • We disclose the number and nature of government requests for content removal biannually in our Transparency Report.

Find content localized for your country

For each country where a local edition is available, Blogger uses a two-letter country code. 

If you travel internationally and discover a different version of the blog than what you're used to, you can find your home country's version by adding ?gl=<country-code> in the address bar at the end of the blog's URL. 

Example:

  • For an entire blog: https://[blogname].blogspot.com/?gl=<country-code>
  • For a single post: https://[blogname].blogspot.com/2017/03/examplepost.html?gl=<country-code>
