Here is how it works:
Readers see the articles main topics right beneath it.
He just clicks the one he wishes to follow.
Every time you write about that topic again, we direct the followthis users directly to your website.
Do you run another CMS or do you wish to use the followthis topic box only on certain pages of your website?
Here you may find a description of how to integrate the topic box manually.
To embed the followhis topic box in your website does not take longer then a few minutes. Within the topic box the main topics of your article are automatically summed up. With one click on a specific topics the reader „follows“ this topic now. If you write another article about the same topics the reader will get the link to your website delivered in his journal. When he clicks that link he will be directed to your website again.
You gain new readers and subscribers. New readers, who have never heard of your website or your blog before („outside of their box“) will see your website recommended in their journal. This will happen if their selected topics are alike the topics on your page or your articles or posts. By choosing specific topics they set an "anchor" on your page. Hence they will not only visit your website once, but keep coming back if the topics will match again.
Yes, this is the main purpose of followthis. We want you to gain new readers to become recurrent readers. Additionally, followthis user can subscribe any topic, independently from a specific website. If one of your published article hits such a topic, the user will get to know about you in his journal and may come to your website to find out more.
RSS usually delivers all and every article of a website after subscribing to an RSS feed. As a result, most of the following updates are ignored, because only some of them are of interest for the reader. followthis only delivers news about topics the reader subscribed. He receives a journal at times when he wish to receive it. It can be daily, or bi-weekly, or every Saturday.
followthis is an additional way to gain readers for your website resp. gain recurrent readers. RSS feeds and newsletters are mainly used by recurrent readers. followthis is a comprehensive system which users can use with one click. If a user chooses to follow a specific topic on another website he will possibly get to know your website too, if you write about similar issues.
If your articles, which contain the followthis topic box, meet the chosen topics of a reader, your articles will automatically be teasered to our readers in their daily or weekly journal with a short description and a link to your website. We want the reader to consume the article on your website.
Indeed, followthis is completely free for you as a publisher as well as for the followthis readers. followthis earns money with integrating advertising on news feeds, the followthis journal, and the topic pages in some cases.
You can deactivate the CMS plugin or remove the HTML code from your blog at any time. This means no more posts from you will be delivered to the readers.
Of course. You can embed followthis on as many websites as you want. You only have to setup and activate the plugin on each website. To help the readers to subscribe to your different websites, you get different profiles for each website on followthis.
The WordPress plugin was developed for blogs and posts. But it’s easy to embed the HTML code manually for other page templates, too. Just contact us, we will be happy to help.
