I have an auto blog using that is independently hosted. For the last 15 days I am seeing that the visits from Iran has reduced by almost 95%. 1 of my users also mailed and confirmed that the blog is not accessible.

Currently I am having no idea what might be the standard procedure to appeal to the higher authority. What to do to get my blog unblocked?

Please shed some lights!

Thanks

Pray.

Unfortunately that was a serious answer. Has anyone, anywhere, ever succeeded in reversing a block imposed by a national government? Without concurrently overthrowing the government? In retrospect, was it worth the trouble?

Agree with above.

An outside chance is to build a new site targeting that country minus the qualities that earned the ban. Scantily clad women and autos seem to be common in the western media. Not something found in Iran's media. There might be other aspects of your site content to consider.

Use it as a badge of honor to promote your site to existing visitors. "Banned in Iran! We must be onto something!".

I had the same issue a while ago. You can submit your explanation here:

But its useless. I would just move on...

I wonder if it's automatic or a manual ban. Congrats if it's manual!

I heard its automatic based on Titles and Keywords however many popular sites are manually blocked if the content is sex, religion and politics related.
