How To Instantly Get More Traffic To Your WordPress Blog

Been meaning to share this post from Hugh’s Views and News for a some time, and finally, here it is! If you want a quick, easy way to get more people to stop by your blog, and you haven’t already done this, you really should check it out. For some reason, even though I’ve been blogging about 15 years, I’d never even noticed this option. Instead of sending out emails to your followers with your entire post included, you can change your settings to send a quick summary with a “Read More of This Post” notice. This will be old news to many of you, but for the rest, Hugh shows you how, and it’s EASY-PEASY! Check it out for full instructions. And thanks, Hugh! 🙂

Hugh's Views & News  

Here’s a little trick that will instantly get more traffic to your WordPress blog if, like me, you prefer to get notification emails whenever a blog you follow publishes a new post.

  • Go to your blog’s dashboard
  • On the lefthand side menu, click on WP Admin

  • Click on ‘Save Changes’ at the bottom of the page

Now, whenever you publish a new post, instead of the whole post being visible on the email (which followers can read without visiting your blog), they will need to click on the link in the email to be able to view and read the whole post on your blog. This will register as a new view in your blog stats.

Here’s an example of an email I…

    • I was pretty sure I wouldn’t be the only one who’d never noticed this. Now that I have, I can’t believe I went all these years ignoring such an obvious thing, especially since many, many of the emails I receive have that message at the bottom. DOH!! But it’s fixed now, and I’m glad you found the info useful, Denise. Thanks for taking a moment to comment, too. I’m happy to know it was helpful to you, as I’m sure Hugh will be as well. 🙂 ❤

    • Happy to share it, Hugh, and I know others will find it useful as well. I’d be interested in those stats, too. Especially if I even knew how to check them. 😀 😀 😀 (You can see the blog is all about people for me, and I’ve been remiss in the technical side of things.) I will have to explore when I have some time, and figure out how to determine those numbers.

      In the meantime, I’m just very happy that folks will visit the page to see the entire post, especially if it contains a lot of images, as those don’t always come through in emails. Also, if they visit the post, they’ll see all the comments and can become more involved in discussions and things. That’s very important to me. Thanks for teaching me something new! 😀 ❤

    • Happy it was useful for you, Julie. I know it was for me, and I’m very pleased with the way the New Post emails go out now. Don’t know why I never figured it out before, but once Hugh showed me how easy it is, I really wanted to share. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
