How to Backup Blogspot Blog Using Blogger Export Feature

Have you ever worried about the safety of your Blogger blog? As long as you write your blog with the right spirit, it is safe in Google server. They delete a blog from their server only if the blogger team find it is spamming. So theoretically every useful blog is safe with Google. However, it is better you have the backup of your work on your computer to make sure it is cent percent safe. Though Google (Google owns blogger ) is a reliable company, it cannot guarantee cent percent safety for your content and hard work. So I highly recommend taking backups often to counter any unexpected deletion of blogs from their server. Blogger has a feature to export the blog saved in their server. We can use this feature to take the backup.

Blogger Blog With Custom Domain is Not Opening in My Country

Right now I am having issues with opening in India and it is the same story for all blogger blogs with custom domains. I noticed this problem on yesterday night but I thought it was just a temporary phenomenon and never cared much about it. Sometimes my Internet Service Provider shows strange issues. I have been using BSNL and Bharti Airtel for my home.

Today morning some of my friends called and informed me about the issue. They too are not able to open my blog on their computers. Seems a serious problem, so I have started working with it. I tried to open my blog on my desktop computer but failed. On both my desktop and laptop, the browser seems to wait for my blog and it is not coming to an end. Once I faced such an issue with my BSNL connection; so decided to check with different Internet Service Provider. I tried different Internet Service Providers but the result is the same.

Check Reading Level of a Blog in Google Search

Google has introduced a new Search filter named Reading Level. This feature helps us to filter search results based on the standard of the content. There are three categories of the reading level; basic, intermediate and advanced. We can choose the desired reading level from the advanced search page. These three classifications are based on the level of expertise in the articles. For example, if you are looking for tutorials to start learning a new subject, it is better you choose basic and intermediate. However, for a researcher, 'advanced' is preferred. So for a researcher who is looking for in-depth knowledge in a particular topic must choose advanced rather than basic or intermediate. The same feature helps to classify the quality of a website in case of the level of knowledge.

Let us check the reading level of this blog. Here I enabled the option to annotate results with reading level from the advanced search page.

According to Google, the reading level of CoreNetworkZ.c…

Granding Access By Controling Another Gmail Account

How many of you are managing more than one Gmail accounts? I am having more than one accounts and I often think it would be nice if I can log in to all by a single login. Google has a solution for those who are struggling to handle multiple email accounts. That solution is called Email Delegation and this feature authorizes any other Gmail accounts to access your Gmail account without typing or knowing your password. Don't worry, nobody can access your email without your authorization. The 'grant access request' must send from your Gmail account and the second user should accept it. After the verification, he can log in to your mail account without typing your password via his account. You can block the user at any time if you are not willing to grant entry for him anymore.

Allow Access To Another Gmail
In order to enable Email Delegation for your Gmail ID, follow the steps below.
