Are you No-Reply Blogger?



Are you not receiving replies to the nice comments that you leave on other peoples blogs? Do you have to go back to their blog to see if they replied? The reason you're not getting the replies may be because you are a noreply-comment on blogger. 

This morning Eva from Tales of the Scotts left me a comment telling me that I was a no-reply blogger. She also referred me to one of her posts on how to fix the problem. Her post was very informative if you have a blogger profile. Unfortunately, I switched to Google+ and her post didn't help me.  From doing some research on how to fix this I found that a lot of people have been experiencing  the same thing when they switched to Google+. It took me a while to figure out how to fix it but once I found the solution it was pretty easy. 
Blogger Profile - follow steps 5-7
Google+ Profile - follow steps 2-9

Step 1 - Check to see if you are a noreply blogger
  • Make a comment on your own blog
  • Check your email to see if you received the comment
  • Check to see who the email is from. Is it your email address? or "noreply-comment@blogger.com
  • If it is from noreply-comment@blogger.com, than you are a No-Reply Blogger and will need to make some changes.

Step 2 - Go to your Blogger dashboard
  • Click on the gear in the upper right hand corner
  • Choose "Revert to Blogger Profile" (this is only temporary)

Step 3 - Switch your Profile
  • Click on "Switch to a limited Blogger Profile"

Step 4 - Confirm your Profile
  • Fill out "Display Name"
  • Click on " Continue to Blogger"

Step 5 - Back to the Blogger dashboard
  • Click on your name in the upper right hand corner
  • In the drop down box click on "Blogger Profile"

Step 6 - Edit your Profile

  • Click on "Edit Profile" in the upper right hand corner

Step 7 - Changing Email Settings
  • Check the box "Show my Email Address"
  • Click on "Save Profile" at the bottom of the page
Step 8 - Switching back to Google+
  • Go back to your blogs dash board
  • Click on "Google+
  • On the next page click on "Upgrade to Google+"
Step 9 - Connect to Google+
  • At the bottom of the page check the box
  • Click on "Switch Now"
Now you will be able to view all of the replies to your comments.

UPDATE: Be sure to check your status periodically! I've found that it can revert back to a no-reply status. I haven't figured out why yet, but my best guess is that it has something to do with making changes to either Blogger or Google+. I've made it a habit to check it whenever I make any changes and I also check it once a month just to be sure.

  12. Maybe I'm just the silent type.

    Ha. Just kidding. Thanks for the info!

  13. Does Google upgrade people to G+ automatically, or is that something you did on your own? I have a G+ account, but it wasn't connected to my Blogger account, last time I checked.

    ReplyDelete
  14. oh, wow--I had no idea! thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have been wanting to change this for so long, but the tutorials haven't been for Google+ and I couldn't figure it out.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I really like your "follow us" buttons- so cute!
    I'm not sure if I have a different version of Blogger or what, but I can't find how to do what you say to do. :/

  17. Thank you SO much for posting this....and with SO clear instructions. I realized not long ago that I was a no-reply commenter but like you wrote the tutorial was not for Google+. Can't wait to get the replies on my comments now, yay!

    ReplyDelete
  18. That was really easy to follow. I followed your steps and I think it worked . ;)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Personally one of things I hate about blogger is it's commenting system. They want to try to force you to sign into a google account! I am happy to see you have the full range of options open to commenter's here but on many people's blogs they don't and so without the name/url option I am unable to comment!

  34. I took away my captcha and added moderation and started attending lots of linky parties. Then I started getting more comments, though I had to approve all the comments I wanted printed. I get about 5-10 spam comments a day that I delete.

  39. Thank you for the help! I had no idea I too was a no-reply blogger! I know I am boring in comparison to all of you who create such beautiful things so thought I just wasn't getting a lot of comments. Maybe it will change now! Thanks again!

  41. Thank you! I never EVER received email comments because I didn't have my email listed originally! I've been baffled by this! Thanks so much for helping the non-techies!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I'd be careful switching back to Google+ ... I went through this before, had it work for about a week, but it went back to "No Reply" and I think it was because I turned Google+ back on. So I turned it off, went through the process and left Google+ off. o_O (Hopefully I won't show up as "no-reply"!)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I did this to my account several weeks ago and I haven't had any problems with it reverting back to a no-reply. I love Google+ I would hate to have to turn it off, it's such a great way to connect with other bloggers as well as family and friends.

    2. Hi! I had the same problem that Hilary did. I did this fix a while back and then today, I found some of my own comment replies in my spam file. I checked and sure enough, I was a no-reply blogger again. Grrr! I've just done the steps again and it worked when I checked it a minute ago, but it's probably a good idea to check yours every so often to make sure it sticks. This is sooo frustrating. I don't want to disconnect my G+ account either, but if it means not getting replies to my comments, I don't see any other way. Thanks for posting this tutorial, too... I'd forgotten how I did it the last time and this was a godsend. :~)

  43. Thank you so much for the excellent tutorial and reminder. I constantly have to check mine, because it always goes back to no-reply. So frustrating!! Thanks so much for sharing at A Bouquet of Talent!! Have an awesome weekend.

  51. I kept getting some funky error message at Step 4, "Continue to Blogger". Then, after I switched back to Google+ and made a comment on a post it didn't show up at all in my email inbox. I just decided to forget Google+ (not that many connections through it anyway) and just go with a regular Google account. Now I can comment, see it in my email inbox and I'm no longer a no-reply Blogger. Thanks for the good info.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I just found this in another one of my blogs I follow. I just did the very 1st step & that explains it all! But....I do not have the pull down option to do the next step "revert to..." only "google +"...sooooo, not sure what to do next :( Very sad. I'd love to fix this as I've had no comments for months & thought something odd was happening. Can you help me out? Thanks for the information! -Jessica

  53. Oops...I feel silly...I just realized I didn't skip ahead. I'm sorry. That's what I get for being on the computer so late. I appreciate the help. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oh wow...I feel like such an idiot. I found the pull down after changing my profile to see my emails. But it gives these options: Blogger Help, Send Feedback, Google +, About our new look. I don't have the option to switch over (temporarily) to Revert to Blogger. Why is that? I know this must be such a simple thing to fix & for some reason I'm not seeing it. Thanks very much. -J

    ReplyDelete
  55. Thank you so much!!! Someone just told me I was a no-reply blogger and I always wondered why I didn't get replies to the comments I left. So I just googled "what is a no-reply blogger"? and your site came up. Thanks for the easy directions!!

  71. Good Morning Robin, I am joining the hundred or so people to say A GREAT BIG THANK YOU. You know, since I discovered I was a "no reply blogger" I have literally been tearing my hair out trying to fix it. I followed other tutorials but with no luck, but then I left a comment for Suzan at Simply Vintageous and noticed she was pointing me in your direction. I really am grateful, so a BIG THANK YOU TO SUZAN FOR FINDING YOU and A BIG THANK YOU TO YOU, FOR HELPING so many of us to cure this frustrating problem.
    I just wanted to say, you are one of the many generous bloggers I have come across during my short time of blogging, you are willing to share information to help other bloggers.....again thank you.
    I am so pleased that I have become a new follower. If you would like to pop over and visit me at Ivy, Phyllis and Me! you will be more than welcome.
    Have a truly lovely day.
    Best Wishes

  75. Hi Robyn. I've had several new followers lately who are no reply bloggers. I was going to write a post about it but yours is so well done. Would it be ok if, in my post about it, I were to refer people to your instructions rather than create my own? If you don't want me to, that's totally ok but I thought I'd ask before reinventing the wheel. Thanks.

  110. Hi there and HELP!!!! I one that needs a DUMMY 101 instruction list..hehe I posted on my own blog as you suggested and I did get an email and there was my actual email addy to reply to. My problem is that most that comment ON my blog when I try to respond to them THEY are the noreply people. So I have to let each one know that? I loved blogger before google messed with it. I don't even remember linking blogger to it. (see that Dummy 101 thing) I want to be able to get my comments and be able to send the person a comment back. I have lost several folks because of this...I miss my contact.

  113. thanks, i've noticed though, upon getting back to google+ profile, posts are automatically set to publication by default, so you wanna look at that if you had disabled the publishing by default option prior to that

    Would it be ok if I linked to this post on my blog?

    ReplyDelete
  119. Thanks! I had no idea about this too, but I've made the changes. Great post you wrote, very clear and descriptive! :)

  121. thank you, I have been blogging for a while and it was all ok. then I switched to google + and became a no reply blogger. I have fixed that hopefully and reinstated google +. Can I ask, how does google + help me? I REALLY have no idea.
