How to Sell Your Blogger Blogs

Selling Your Blogspot Blog is Possible But It's Against Google's TOS

Have you ever thought about selling your Blogger-hosted blog? Well if you some pretty website with considerable amount of traffic, then you might have the guts to, but tell you what, think again because selling your Blogspot-hosted blog (with this I mean the free hosting plus the domain name with the extension) is completely against the TOS (Terms of Service).

7. No Resale of the Service. Unless expressly authorized in writing by Google, you agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, trade, resell or exploit for any commercial purposes (a) any portion of the Service, (b) use of the Service, or (c) access to the Service.

Once you get caught doing this, your Blogger blogs will then be banned and who knows, they might even ban your IP address! (There's always a way to get around this though).

There are a couple of ways though that you can sell your Blogspot or Blogger blog if you really want to. One is to transfer the ownership to someone else/buyer or getting a paid hosting (that's when you get rid of the extension).

How to Transfer Your Blogger Blog to Someone Else/Buyer

1. Log in to your blogspot account.
Click on the “Settings” tab of the blog you want to sell.
Now click on “Permissions” tab.
Now click on “Add Authors” tab. Check the below screenshot.

In the box area, type the e-mail ID of the person whom you want to sell, or the e-mail ID of the person you want to transfer or the e-mail ID of your another account (if you are interested to transfer the blog in stead of selling).

Now hit on Invite. The invite to join the blog as an author will be sent to the person.

2. Now the invite is sent to the person. When he will accept that invitation to join the blog as an author (yup, the invitation will go to join the blog as an author), he will see your blog in his blogspot account’s dashboard.
Once he accepts the invitation, you will find his mail ID in the “Permissions” tab. Next to that, there will be a “Add as Admin” option. Click on that and make him the admin of your blog.
Now the blog is having two admins. You and your invited person.
From now on, he can do anything with the blog that a normal Admin can do. He can even delete you from the Admins.

3. Ask the other Admin to remove you from the admins list and that’s it.
Once he deletes you from the admins list, he is the only left admin, which means he is the solo owner of the blog now, which also means that you have sold or transffered your blogspot blog to an another person.

This is the process to sell or transfer blogspot blogs to someone else for the purpose of selling it but again, this is against the Blogger's TOS.

Selling Your Blogspot Username and PasswordLogin

How on earth would Blogger know that you sold or will be selling your Blogspot-hosted blog when you do the process under the table? You can simply provide the username and password to the buyer. The drawback of this is that the buyer will then have access to your other blogs and your email.

If you're really serious about making money with your blog without violating Blogger's TOS (terms of service), you better transfer the hosting to a paid hosting and buy a domain name for that blog (the traffic would be affected if redirecting is not part of the package but I guess most hosting also provides that). 

I do not suggest you going against the Blogger's terms of service as it will only yield more loss than gain.

My programmer is trying to convince me to move to
.net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because
of the expenses. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using
Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and
am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.

net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
Any help would be really appreciated!
