Would you like to increase your blog’s subscriber count? Of course you do, that’s the whole point of blogging, right? Well what better way to get your visitors returning to your blog posts than by creating a loyal blog reader following. By subscribing to your blog on Twoggle, your readers will receive a daily digest of any new posts (if there are any) that you publish. Nothing more, nothing less. As a blog reader myself, I enjoy getting stuff that I am interested in, delivered straight to my inbox in one daily digest email (not a separate email each time a new post is published, which would just flood my inbox right?).
How do I get more readers subscribed to my blog?
Up until now, readers could follow your blog by finding you on the Twoggle blog search, then subscribe to your blog through the search results (or on the individual blog profile page).
Enter the new Twoggle follow button.
Like other social media buttons, the Twoggle follow button let’s you place the ‘Follow my blog’ button straight onto your blog, letting your readers subscribe to your blog directly from where they are – visiting your blog post!
How to insert the ‘Follow My Blog’ button on your blog
Getting the follow button onto your blog is easy as pie, just follow the simple steps below to get started driving more subscriber traffic to your posts:
Create a Twoggle blog profile
If you haven’t already done so, join the Twoggle blogger community by submitting your blog (this is free by the way, and gives you other benefits like Adsense revenue sharing and finding great guest blogging opportunities). Blogs are usually approved within 15 minutes. You can continue with steps below in the meantime.
Get the Twoggle follow button code
After logging in, visit the my blogs page (dashboard). Here all your Twoggle-submitted blogs are listed. For the blog you want to place the follow button on, go to the ‘Follow Button’ section (right above ‘Wanted Guest Posts’) and select and copy the code in the textarea:
Place the code on your blog
To have the follow button appear on your blog, place it in the HTML code for your blog. For WordPress users, the easiest way to do this is by placing the code inside a text widget inside your sidebar. In WP-admin, go to Appearance > Widgets. Drag a ‘Text’ widget from the left into the sidebar area on the right:
Hit save and visit your blog homepage / blog post – the Twoggle follow button should now appear.
And you’re done.
That’s it! You should now have a follow button on your blog which your readers can use to easily subscribe to your new posts, driving traffic back to your blog.
