Press This is WordPress Plug – The Original way to capture information before Pinterest and Buffer App and hootsuite was invented.
This plug in makes it easier when running your own Blog to get content and creating deep links on your wordpress website. Press This makes it easy to grab information from a website similar to the buffer app and Pinterest but it posts the content on your blog instead of in a social media network.
Press This makes a link where you got your information from and stores it on your blog. It can even include photo’s. Now that you have the information properly credited inside your own blog you can re-post the information to your Pinterest or Buffer App. This bookmark button just created you as the middle person between your content and who views your social media. Driving traffic to you through your content.
What does Press This do for me?
Press This creates a link between the “content” you found on the internet and your Blog. When you share the information through your favorite social media you can share your own blog post instead. Driving traffic to you.
How do I get Press This?
If you have a WordPress website, you already have it. It is located under “Tools” tab in your WordPress dashboard.
Holding the posting information on your website will create search engine and SEO opportunities for your website creating traffic to your website through blogging. Get started add Press This to your bookmarks so you can increase traffic to your blog.
