Blogger Content Policy


Blogger is a free service for communication, self-expression and freedom of speech. We believe Blogger increases the availability of information, encourages healthy debate, and makes possible new connections between people. It is our belief that censoring this content is contrary to a service that bases itself on freedom of expression.

To maintain these values, however, we need to limit the abuse that threatens our ability to provide this service and the freedom of expression that this service encourages. As a result, there are some restrictions on what kind of content is hosted by Blogger. The limitations that we have identified are compliance limits for both legal requirements and for the purpose of improving the service in general.

If you come across a blog that you believe violates our policies, please report it to us using the 'Report Abuse' link at the top of each blog in the 'Other' drop-down. If the blog owner has hidden this link, you can still report the abuse in the Blogger Help Center.
