Promote! Redirect auto-promotion links to your embedded paper

PRO badge.png  Increase traffic and visibility for your blog or website!  If you have embedded your paper on an outside site, you can redirect the promotion link to your iframed paper or Nomad widget on your main website, instead of your URL.

Have you embedded your paper onto your blog or website using an iframe or Nomad widget?  Then you have the option to redirect all promotional traffic to the embedded paper by entering the URL of the site with the embed into your settings.

The URL you enter will be used to  re-direct all promotional traffic (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and email) to the embed on your main website or blog.   




Redirect all Auto-promotion

Step One! From your Paper Settings Dashboard, go to the Web Newspaper module, then Website Embeds.   Click either the Nomad widget or iframe option to find the Auto-promote redirect field.  Enter the URL that holds the iframed paper or Nomad widget in the field.

Step Two!  If you have auto-promote already activated (for Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter) and you enable Auto-Promote Redirect, you must go to your Paper Settings Dashboard, select the Social Media Agent module to turn OFF and then back ON the toggle switch(s) for Facebook, Twitter and/or LinkedIn in order to update the URL in your default auto-promote text.


Note that if you are sharing your own website, the image shared on social media will come from your website and not from the paper itself.
