Bloglovin Stealing Your Page Views? BLOCK THEM!

Is Bloglovin stealing your page views? BLOCK THEM! I work with a lot of hard working bloggers and when one of my clients came to me and told me about what Bloglovin was doing, I was just furious. I know how hard these bloggers work putting so much time and effort into their websites. For someone to just come and steal their content, all of it nonetheless was just nuts! I am sure that Google will catch on to their scheme sooner or later but there is something that you can do about it now.

Steps to blocking Bloglovin plagiarizing your content!

Log onto your website with your favorite FTP program. You can use FileZilla, Notepad Plus Plus, Dreamweaver or even log into your cPanel and access your .htaccess file. Put the following code at the top of the file.

Tip: Click on images to make them larger. If you find anything wrong on this page or need further assistance please comment below or contact me. 🙂
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !^id=[^&]+ [NC]
# if referrer is bad.com
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} (www\.)?bloglovin\.com [NC]
# then redirect to a different page
RewriteRule !^blog-lovin.html [L,NC,R=302],

Will this affect my RSS feed?

No it will not affect your RSS feed. We are using htaccess the way facebook does to block sites who try to embed their content by way of iframe. As you can see below in my example of a1websitepro.net the RSS feed is still alive and active! 🙂 Bloglovin too will have access to your RSS feed but they will not be able to display your content in an iFrame.

bloglovin still gets rss feed

 

Can other sites still embed and iframe from my site if I want them too?

Yes! This code only blocks Bloglovin. You can still embed in your own site and website that you authorize to use your content by way of iframe. You can see below I am embeding a1websitepro.net into webdevelopmentyoungstown.com.  🙂

Is there an alternative method ? – Try this FIRST 🙂

Yes there is. Add this code to your header.php file right before closing head tag. This will force the iframe to break out and give you a page view! 🙂

<script type="text/javascript">
		if (top.location != self.location)
		top.location = self.location;
	</script>

Blogger code

	<script type="text/javascript">
		setInterval(function () {if (top.location != self.location)
		top.location = self.location;}, 3000);
	</script>
