Today I will post about blogspot and ptc blogs using it. Ptc investigations (A blog I really hate) got their blog marked as a spam by google. Everyone started to yell that google mark ptc sites as spam "bla bla bla". So this is where I come in :)
PTC Investigations was a blog full of banner links and was a very slow loading blog. Google send out their bots to search bad spam websites, they can see how many banners one site has and how fast it load. I think this is where their blog failed big time. Since google support is really horrible, the owner/s of PTC Investigations probably didn't even contact them to solve this.
I know many popular ptc blogs that are hosted at blogspot and they are doing just fine, including this one. Sure, a few were suspended but it was either because of too many links in sidebars or because the blog was not "used as a blog". The last one is very unclear but I managed to avoid it so far by posting new content as often as I can and not only promoting a few banners.
So the conclusion is.. don't be afraid of using blogspot to have a ptc blog. Hosting content at your own host is always the best and cost only a few bux per month but if you want a free place, blogspot is perfect! Even if your blog get suspended, you can still generate a backup and upload it somewhere else.
