How to Force Bloglovin Readers Visiting Your Blog – MUST READ!
Bloglovin users can access bloglovin using web browsers or Bloglovin App (iOS & Android)
By default, If one of your articles get featured and when people read your article on bloglovin using web browser, they are accessing the bloglovin frame like this: http://frame.bloglovin.com/?post=blablablabla (click to see)
<!– frame buster –>
if (top.location != self.location)
top.location = self.location;
Bloglovin APP (iOS & Android)
The real problem occurs when people read your article from the bloglovin app, whenever they browse and read some blog posts, they will likely access bloglovin post page instead of accessing your blog directly.
For example, see this bloglovin account (click here) when people read her posts using Bloglovin APP (Android/iOS), they will access the blog page version like this page. At this point you may think “why is bloglovin takes all my content” – Continue reading…
Guess what the readers will do when they finished reading your article? They won’t visit your blog and browse for other readings. You’ll notice less visitors to your blog.
See? All of your hard work become less effective, and this is not a good practice. You see the problem is, people don’t really pay a visit to your site, they just read your post on Bloglovin page, and you are losing $$$. (especially if you monetize your blog using some PPC like Adsense or Affiliate Programs). All links won’t be alive on bloglovin post page.
Some people think that Bloglovin takes all of the content and make it their own – This is not entirely true, but I have a fix for this.
Hint: This tip is dedicated to self-hosted WordPress users. If you are using Yoast SEO plugin, there is a similar functionality to the plugin, but I will make it short.
Note: If you are using blogger, please check this url
This plugin will help you to prevent bloglovin copy-pasting your full articles, and will increase direct visits to your blog to 200%!
