Hello GoogleI am using Google blogger since 5 years and i regularly post blogs in my blog. But past 3 months ago i have changed my blog name to amazpedia but some one is using that domain name www.amazpedia.blogspot.comHe is not even posted one post on the blog so why is he using the domain name please Google remove him from that domain name and give it to me so that i can use it and make more blog and increase my reach.Thanks for your support.My youtube channel :- www.youtube.com/amazpedia
It looks as though http://amazpedia.blogspot.com/ has been online since at least 2016.
That’s not “hijacking,” that is someone else got there first.
Am I missing something about this? Please explain.
“I would like that blogspot url” is not the same thing as “I am entitled to that url and some hijacker stole it from me.”
Google won’t “remove him from that domain name” and even if it did that would not give it to you, it would be permanently retired.
You can call your blog anything you like, of course.Kathy and any others, here is what I have learned about this.
If you change your blogspot url from A to B, Blogger will reserve A for your potential reuse, but it will be unavailable to others.
But if you change it again, to C, you will end that reservation. A will become generally available, and B will be reserved, while C will be the active blogspot url.
I can’t say why that should be, but I can understand Google wanting to discourage domain squatting or hoarding.
The implication is that Kathy went from k2k9 to something else to travelingdoglady. Then pmurphey claimed the url, because it was available.
From Google’s perspective, pmurphy got it fair and square, because Kathy had abandoned it. Whether that really is the best policy is, of course, subject to debate, but it is not strictly speaking “theft.” The account was not compromised in any way.
