    • Hello Martin,
      LinedIn is no doubt great source of traffic for blogs. Thanks for reminding us. Keep visiting!

  2. I read all the time about how bloggers hate pop ups “but they work” – the think is I’m not just a blogger, I’m an avid reader of blogs. When I land on a blog an am assaulted by a pop up before I can even read the title of the post I leave, never to return. I do have a premium plugin installed on my blog that I’ve tested, but a very small percentage of my subscribers use it. The #1 source? The little blub that I include at the end of each post – by far.

    • Hi Marquita,
      You can optimize the plugin to showup after sometimes the reader visited your blog or you can make it showup after the visitor visit the second page. In this way you will not annoy your readers and you can get some subscribers.
      Thanks for your comment.
