Among the bloggers is Bloglovin probably pretty famous. I know a lot of bloggers who don’t use Bloglovin because they think it is useless. Still, Bloglovin is a really handy social media platform, but only when you use it in the right way. Today I explain to you how to increase your blog traffic with Bloglovin.
Increase your blog traffic with Bloglovin
I looked on Google Analytics and I saw that I only got 42 unique visitors this month from Bloglovin. I thought this was almost nothing. Every week I get static in my mailbox from Bloglovin. These statics say that 75 different people read my blog on Bloglovin this week. 75 unique visitors who have to read the blog article on my blog. Okay, let’s say that Bloglovin didn’t really calculate this on the right way, but 42 unique visitors comparing to the 300 unique visitors ( 75 x 4) is very little.
I share my Bloglovin posts automatic on Twitter and I knew that a lot of visitors get on my blog via this share function. Well, my “visitors” could read the article on Bloglovin. This way I didn’t get a number of visitors what my article sends, but Bloglovin received them. I pressed on the article what is shared on Bloglovin and I saw that you could read the whole article, without visiting my blog. This isn’t the meaning of course. If I want to write for Bloglovin, then I will write for Bloglovin. It is for sure very hard to increase your blog traffic with Bloglovin.
With the normal Bloglovin and with the mobile version, I just got on my blog. Well, that went via my feed. I couldn’t find my own blog via the normal Bloglovin feed, but I tried some other blogs. Here I just visited their blog, instead of only Bloglovin. Here wasn’t the problem. but how is it possible that I lose so many visitors only via twitter? There has to be another way, where I lose a lot of visitors, but when I solve the problem with Twitter then it has to be solved with the other problems as well.
As first you have to turn off the frame of Bloglovin. You do this by going to Bloglovin.com, then to settings > account and then you need to turn the bar off next to the frame. When you already did this, then you don’t have to do this another time, because then you turn him on again. Next, you go to your wordpress.org account. If this works for blogger and the wordpress.com accounts, I don’t know. I would love to hear this and otherwise, I will find a new solution for these cases. Go to your WordPress.org account > settings > reading > for each article in a feed, show “summary”.
Fortunately, your read more button (if you have this!) won’t die when you do this. Pay attention, the articles which you put online, won’t show the read more button on Bloglovin. When you publish a new article and for example open the Bloglovin link via Twitter, then it says “read more”. Your reader has to press this button if they want to read your article. By pressing this button, you get on your blog very easily.

You would probably think, I don’t have this. I see that this problem exists at a lot of blogs (see: almost every blogger who I read the blogs of!). This is not the meaning of course and this definitely needs to get fixed. I don’t hear anything about this problem from the side of Bloglovin and I think that is pretty odd.
I now have the feeling that Bloglovin steals our content and don’t say anything about this. Take care that your settings are put in the right way. For some people, these hundreds of visitors are maybe nothing, but I know that for a lot of bloggers these visitors really count. In the first place, it is really important that you love blogging and that it is your true passion of course ;). This is the solution to increase your blog traffic with Bloglovin!
Update 24-04-2017: With the plugin Framebuster (The green one), you can disable the frame. You can’t do this anymore by just adjusting the settings. When you don’t disable the frame, you will still lose visitors and we don’t want that of course.
A Sunday blog article is nothing without a free printable of course! That’s the reason why I created a printable for you again. I made a password log this time. Here you can save your password very easily, so you never forget it. I don’t say that I recommend hanging this printable in the middle of your house, but in your agenda or a drawer, it is really handy of course. As you can see in the picture above, I’ve made two password logs. For the left one click here and for the right one click here.
What do you think of the printable and the blog tip of course? It is hard to increase your blog traffic with Bloglovin. Did you figure this out yourself?
