Blogger Importer
Google Rejects Authorization (7 posts)

    I have successfully imported my blog from blogger in the past. Now I want to import my new posts from blogger. However, when I use the Blogger Import plugin, it takes me to Google, as it has done before, asks for authorization, and I hit "Grant Access", but I get the following message:

    Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. Please try your request again later. Why did this happen?

    IP address: 67.61.183.85
    Time: 2012-11-25T14:58:33Z
    URL: http://accounts.google.com/OAuthAuthorizeToken

    I am using the latest WP 3.4.2 and the latest Blogger Importer 0.5.

    PS I am already logged into Google, and the page with the buttons that say "Grant Access" and "Deny Access" confirms that.

    Here's what google has to say for that message:

    The key thing here is it's your server that they are objecting to, not your local machine. It could be that your server has been doing other requests to google.

    You can find out if your server IP is shared with others with a "reverse IP lookup"

    This is happening from home, so the server would belong to our ISP, which is CableOne. I don't have any other issues with Google's services, just when I try to run the blogger import.

    It could be that you share an IP with someone who's been doing strange things to Google.
    Does the issue persist if you try from other locations?

    IP sharing is an easy way to hack your own data while others have accessibility option occur or not.

    Only one other person shares the IP address, and I'm sure there's nothing weird going on there. Virus scans and malware scans show up negative.

    Haven't tried it from another location yet.
