Today I stumbled on a site called Glipho, a new blogging platform. Yes, I do say I was intrigued. The format reminded me a bit like Pinterest, however, there were not only images scrolling by, but blog posts!
I decided to create an account. It was very simple to set up as you can see on the Infographic below. I do admit that I was hesitant to import my posts from WordPress. My main concern was that I would have some issues with my blog, but thankfully I didn’t!
Duplicate content was another concern. According to an interview with Glipho CEO, Roger Planes by BookMarketingBuzzBlog, “Blogs are imported but automatically tagged in such a way that search engines don’t crawl them. This removes any problems with duplicate content for the originating blog.”
After importing, the only hiccup I noticed was that some, not all, of my images from my posts did not transfer over to Glipho. I haven’t explored why that happened, (probably user error!) but I was able to insert the photos pretty easily.
