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 paper.li 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 automatic promotional traffic to the embedded paper by entering the URL of the site with the paper.li embed into your settings.
The URL you enter will be used to re-direct all automatic 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 > Web Newspaper > Website Embeds > Click either the Nomad widget or iframe option to find the Auto-promote redirect field. Enter the URL that points to the embedded paper on your website. Eg. www.yourwebsite.com/pagewithembed.
Step Two: If you have auto-promote already activated (for Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter), now visit your Social Media Agent tab. Turn OFF and then back ON the main toggle switch(s) for Facebook, Twitter and/or LinkedIn in order to sign in again. Now when you choose to share your web newspaper link, your own website will show in the default auto-promote text.
Note that when promoting your own site hosting an embed of your paper, social media channels will pull the meta data (an image) from your own site, not from the paper. So each day, when posting to twitter for example, the image would be the same and will not change daily-- and would be whatever image has been added by you to represent your own site.
