I don’t have time today to really blog about this in detail, but fortunately the news is all over the web (along with good advice about what to do if you’re affected). This post is just to amplify the signal in hopes that it will get seen in time by the folks who need to hear about it. Bottom line:
Starting Monday, July 1, any blog on Blogger (the ones with a blogspot.com domain) that has both adult content and any means of monetizing it (including but not limited to affiliate links and banners) is at risk of being deleted by Google.
That’s THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW.
Ultimately everybody affected by this needs to undertake some combination of immediately backing up their blog, pulling monetization links, or moving to self-hosting. The precise mix will vary depending on your situation. But given that it’s a summer weekend, you may only have time to back up your blog. DO THAT NOW.
Hopefully this public service announcement will save somebody’s ass. Be careful out there!
