Limitations of a Blogger blog

There are certain limitations in Blogger and for a blog. Here is a list of all the limits.
This text is mainly taken from Blogger FAQ What are the limitations on my Blog and as certain limitations are not described in that help article, so I have gathered data from various sources and consolidated in this post

This text is divided into 4 segments as per relevance. They are as follows

Account limitations

  • Number of blogs : You can have up to 100 blogs per account.
  • Profile "About Me" info length : 1,200 characters.
  • Profile Interests and Favorites : 2,000 characters in each field.
  • Number of blogs to follow : 300 blogs per account.
  • Team Members : There is a limit of 100 members per blog.

Blog limitations

  • Length of blog title : 90 characters.
  • Length of subdomain name: 37 characters.
  • Length of blog description : 500 characters.
  • Number of members : 100 member invitations per blog.
  • Number of readers (for a private blog) : 100 per blog.
  • Number of posts : No limit. (However, currently the Edit posts list maxes out at 5000 posts, which could make some older posts inaccessible for editing. Blogger is working on a fix).
  • Number of posts displayed on multiple-post pages (homepage, archive etc.) :
    Blogger will attempt to display the number of posts as set in Settings > Formatting > Show At Most provided the posts’ file size does not exceed the Blogger auto-pagination file size cap.
    Bigger posts may cause fewer number of posts to be displayed.

Post limitations

  • Number of posts : There is no limit on the number of posts you can have on one blog. They will all be saved on your account (unless you manually delete them) regardless of whether you are publishing archives or not.
  • Size of post : Individual posts do not have a specific size limit, but very large posts may run you up against the page size limit. (See the next item.)
  • Size of Pages : Individual pages (the main page of your blog, or your archive pages) are limited to 1 MB in size. This will allow for a few hundred pages of text, but it may be a problem if you are listing hundreds of posts on the front page of your blog. If you hit this limit, you will see an error message saying "006 Please contact Blogger Support." You can get around this error by lowering the number of posts on your main page, which will have the added benefit of making your page load faster as well.
  • Number of Pictures : Up to 1 GB of total storage, shared with Picasa Web
  • Size (dimension) of an image : 1600px wide. Larger image will be scaled down while preserving aspect ratio.
  • Filesize of an image : No limit. 250KB through Blogger Mobile.
  • Capacity of image hosting : 1024MB per account in Picasa Web Albums
  • Bandwidth of image hosting : No limit.

Other limitations

  • Number of Labels : Up to 5000 unique labels per blog
  • Label length : 200 characters per label.
  • Number of labels per post : 20 unique labels per post.
  • Number of comments : A post can have any number of comments. As with archived posts, if you choose to hide comments on your blog, all pre-existing comments will remain saved on your account.
  • Comment length : 4,096 characters per comment.
  • Length of post filename : 39 characters (auto-generated from post title, truncated to length).
  • Number of Static Pages : 20

As Blogger is being updated in course of time, there are certain changes and improvisations - just like - earlier only 10 static pages were allowed per blog, but now this count is increased to 20. The information given in this post is nearly accurate as of the date. If you know about any other limitations - please update us writing a comment below.

  1. This is good to take note of the limits set. The blogging platform does have technical issues.

  2. Although not a must, most good quality blogs are interactive, allowing visitors to leave comments and even message each other via GUI widgets on the blogs and it is this interactivity that distinguishes them from other static websites. In that sense, blogging can be seen as a form of social networking. Indeed, bloggers do not only produce content to post on their blogs but also build social relations with their readers and other bloggers.

  3. Limitation is one of the saddest word when it comes to digital world and marketing. This is also common among credit card holders, right? Anyway, these limitations do not greatly affect bloggers to use blogger as a host because of the amazing features and interface that blogger provides.

  6. In my opinion, some of these limitations work for SEO purposes. If that's not your purpose, however, it could be limiting.

  7. I thin to be able to do away with the limitations, it's better to have your own website specially if you're already having your own business. The Long Island search engine optimization company can always help and assist you if you like.

  8. As a specialist at the seo reseller company, I think these would serve as our guidelines when it comes to posting blog comments. I'll share this to my boss so that our jobs would be more efficient.
