SteemPress ready to curate Steem-powered WordPress blogs with 1 million Steem Power

in #steempress4 years ago (edited)

Today we are excited to announce that @steempress-io has recently received a delegation of 1,000,000 Steem Power which will be used to curate content published to the Steem blockchain using the SteemPress plugin for wordpress!

If you are not already familiar with SteemPress, it is a WordPress plugin co-founded by @howo and @fredrikaa that allows posts made on any WordPress blogs to be automatically converted and posted to the Steem blockchain. Beyond making it convenient to share content published on a website also to without the need of added editing, we also provide many added features. These include post scheduling, SEO protection and much more. To download the plugin, or for more information, see the link below:

Growing our userbase and attracting new bloggers

We hope that with this announcement, we can encourage those of you who have a WordPress blog already to try our plugin. Perhaps some of you may have even considered creating your own website in the past, but never got that far, this could be a chance to revisit the idea. We also hope that the many of you who have friends or people in your network with a WordPress blog or website who you never managed to convince to start blogging on steemit, now feel incentivized to try publishing to Steem using SteemPress. Finally, we hope this delegation can help us onboard many new bloggers and creators of the 76 000 000 WordPress websites out there by providing a low barrier of entry to the Steem ecosystem where they can participate from the comfort of their own blogs.

SteemPress is now ready to reward the best WordPress bloggers and creators and to help creators move from blog to blockchain!

How to receive a SteemPress upvote

Currently, we are working hard to improve our voting so that we can both efficiently and fairly reward good creators while avoiding enabling abuse. As we believe all Dapps and community projects should have a public curation policy paper detailing the guidelines and considerations for curating content, we will be publishing our own curation policy brief shortly. In the meantime, these are the three main pillars of our voting:

  • High votes on quality-curator trails
    For the past weeks we have worked closely with a selection of curators with a proven record of caring for quality and avoiding spam and plagiarized content to create a dedicated search tool for them to find content. By trailing their votes on posts made using SteemPress, we hope to both benefit from their experience and dedication to finding great content, while at the same time helping them increase their curation rewards through our trail.

  • New user voting pool
    All new SteemPress users with an existing blog exceeding a certain age will receive initial welcome upvotes once classified as non-spam original content. We hope this can give new users we onboard who have no previous experience with Steem, but who are quality creators, a good start.

  • Randomized votes
    Remaining Voting Power is spread randomly across users with a limit of 1 vote per day per user. To prevent rewarding spam, we have an internal blacklist based on our own records, as well as lists from other communities and anti-abuse projects. We also have an internal rating system of quality to ensure that low-quality posts making it through our initial filters do not receive upvotes of considerable weight. Creators with a proven record of quality, on the other hand, will see higher upvotes.

The SteemPress team is aware that while we are still a young project, the latter will continue to take up a larger portion of the votes. We would like to kindly ask for your patience as we work hard to obtain more quality writers and to improve our voting. In this process, we invite all community members to give feedback on how we can improve or report instances of where we have supported plagiarized content or obvious spam.

Connect with us on Discord!

All steemians eager to use SteemPress, who have questions they would like to ask about our plugin, or have comments they would like to make, are invited to our new Discord server:

We are very grateful for the kind and useful support we have received from the community and our early users in providing new ideas or reporting issues in the early weeks and months of SteemPress! We hope you will continue to be with us on this exciting journey and also provide ideas and suggestions now for how we can provide the best possible service to you as a user and also be of the best possible service to the Steem ecosystem at large!

Our vision is simple: to see bloggers everywhere become empowered by the Steem blockchain to reach new audiences and help monetize their content. We want to see the best WordPress content on Steem, and the best Steem features on every WordPress blog. We look forward to working to achieve this together!

SteemPress on!
@fredrikaa and @howo

SteemPress is the best DApp on the Steem Block chain! Rewarding users of the plugin is a massive bonus guys. Thanks and keep up the great work!

Thanks ! You were one of the early adopters and I can't thanks you enough for trusting us from our early days 'til today :)

I use it often. Good to see more initiatives from you. All the best.

Thanks for your support :)

i am really happy for you @howo and @fredrikaa and I am glad to see two such as yourselves get this opportunity. You both deserve it.

ok, I am going to give this a go...

good news. I think this is very useful for growing newly joined people in steemit.

Yes this is the happy news for me as new steemian

welcome to join friend steemit

Hey there. Not sure if you know, but I started the @omniloquent page which posts general finance/crypto articles. We're planning on publishing around 200 articles per month and turning it into a massive online publication. We've also started using your plugin to post content from there to Steemit.

I have plenty of content and other niches and would like to create similar websites in different niches. Dating, business, fitness, etc.

If you're game, I'd like to work out some kind of partnership with you. While I have plenty of content and don't "need" any writers, I'd like to be able to offer Steemit users the chance to actually make semi-dependable income from writing articles. I tried to get a delegation for @omniloquent but it didn't work out.

It would look like this:

Authors contribute to @omniloquent
Steempress upvotes the post
40% of the SBD payout goes to the author
40% goes to the editor
20% goes to marketing partners
The SP stays in the account

This way the author is compensated, the Steemit account grows (which upvotes its own posts to help reward authors), and your plugin gets more exposure.

That's the general idea. If that seems like something you'd be interested in helping with, you can find me on Discord at yallapapi#1970 or email me at [email protected]

I'm all ears for how SteemPress can support projects like these to create a win-win situation.

I am especially a fan of the way in which you may bring numerous authors together and let them do what they do best (write) whilst helping them have a proper well functioning platform.

My main question would be what you are doing, and expect to do going forward, to bring attention and engagement to the posts that you will be making whether it is on or on the website it posts from?

I'll send you a DM on discord and leaving this comment here for the records.

How do you sign people up though? Through steemit or some other faucet? Who funds the accounts in other words?

This is a great opportunity to onboard numerous content creators and curators yet if the onboarding process is problematic it might never reach liftoff speed, even so congratulations on the delegation and I can't wait to hear more about this.

The signup of new users is still through a link to We hope HF20 will make it easier for us to quickly onboard people who we reach with our own marketing material for SteemPress and a quick signup process would indeed help improve our conversion rate there.

100% agree. The growth of Steemit and anything related to it all hinges on new people being able to sign up without a waiting period.

This signing up is now just disgustingly bad. All my friends gave up just because of this. 10 people tried and just gave up...
With only a couple hundred of people signing up per day it will never become big. It needs to have a minimum of 10.000 people per day and even than it takes years to get the world on steemit.

The new accounts need Steem to fund for the bandwidth required to interact with the blockchain, so if people are willing to put up with the long wait times and verification process for a free account on the bank of Steemit then they are in, but otherwise they have to fund the account themselves through anonsteem. Steem is big and will continue to get bigger simply because the search engines are slurping up so much content that really soon we will dwarf any and all other content publishing platforms, at least that's what I think.

I agree. I tried to set up a different account awhile back and I still have not been approved and that was 3 months ago.

I think this is a way to force people to pay for registration so that Steemit can profit off of the new account registration. Before it took me a week to get this account and I was ready to be a Steemian!

Growth can happen in a complete vacuum of new users simply because of the content being published, for everyone to see. The problem of onboarding more content creators is hard to overcome without verification because of the cost on the network of Steem required to transact with the network for each account and that Steem being locked into spam accounts or accounts people hardly care about/lost passwords and/or outright taken out powered down.

@howo This is insane! Good news <3 I will try to promote it to some influencers I know in the near future once I get the SNDBOX project rolling.

That would be awesome ruben :D

Well done guys! Great work😊 I have already shared with some folk might appreciate it 😉 and I'll give it a lil resteem on here 👊🏽😎 keep the fire burning😎

Thanks for the kind words and also for sharing it :) Right now our main focus is to make sure that all the people out there who can benefit from using SteemPress, so any help in sharing it with people is very much appreciated! Thank you! :D

No worries man 😉 keep on Steeming 😁👊🏽

i want to build a blog using steempress. is it possible to build blog in other languages using steempress?. for example: Russian or other languages @howo @fredrikaa

Any language is ok :)

Congrats with the delegation! I hope this will attract some new Wordpress users to try out the plug-in and get involved with the Steem community. I don't really have any active Wordpress blog myself anymore unfortunately, but this makes me tempted to pick up on some old projects again ;)

Best regards from @valth

It's already happening :D we see quite a lot of new steem users that came because of steempress

Congrats, @fredrikaa and @howo; will resteem this in hopes that writers and artists who follow me (and have a website / blog) might consider joining @steempress-io. Wishing you very best of luck!

Maybe you could benefit from having your own website where you can publish to Steem with SteemPress and also have links to webshops of your many books, widgets to let people follow you on twitter, etc? ;)

Y'know, for years I've toyed with the idea.. I've even had some kind, tech-y souls offer to set web up for me. But, something in me is uneasy about having all my work in one place--irrational, I know, perhaps even counterproductive. But, maybe, it's time to revisit this resistance, as I like the sounds of all you say, here:

you can publish to Steem with SteemPress and also have links to webshops of your many books, widgets to let people follow you on twitter, etc?

Thanks, for nudge, my friend. I need to give it a good hard think, as I feel I might be spread too thin, online.

Congratulations and also thank you.

I'm excited to see new projects and it seems this one might hold multiple benefits by bringing in more "Content Creators" and rewarding them.

Why did you put content creators in quotes XD I think it will bring real ones. I'm also super excited to see more delegations and more opportunities for people!

Hi Whatsup :-) I fail to see how it will bring new content creators, just existing content creators posting existing content to the platform to get some rewards.

I meant bring more content creators to SteemIt.

(Those who are posting elsewhere)

I don't have a problem current content creators getting rewards.

Not sure where the confusion lies.

But if they are posting elsewhere, they will simply be re-posting here, not using Steemit as their native platform thus making anything they post here a copy of what they posted elsewhere first. I just dont see how this is a step forward for the Steem blockchain. It certainly seems to be a backwards step for Steemit and all those developing native interface apps....of course, I might just be getting my wires crossed. It wouldn't be the first time lol ;-)

It could be the transition to them moving here exclusively, in addition, their followers could see it and learn about Steem and feel it is a better market to be involved in.

It would create traffic and name recognition.

I hear your point, but for me it isn't an issue. I'm not married to the content creator, I don't mind if they play the field. :)

Excellent, I knew I could rely on you as a voice of reason. I need to start coming to you with all my worldly problems lol....thankyou :-)

I post both here and on my blog. Anyone coming to my blog sees my Steem ad. They also see an ad for my free English class on Discord, which of course is also a place to promote Steem. I'm sure others have their own ideas about how to use this.

Your balance is below $0.028. @dustsweeper is now disabled for your account until you transfer new funds.

Awesome initiative! TBH @amnlive wouldn't have come to steem without SteemPress: Us comming on was by request from some of our userbase and since StemmPress made it easy to do, we made the leap. So for us it's less about rewards and more about service and finding more readers.
Still wrapping our brains around the entire Steem echo system however ;)
Thanks to @fredrikaa and @howo for making it possible!

This sounds pretty handy for me. I have a few article I have saved on wordpress and it will be nice to be able to convert them to the blockchain. Only trouble is that I have gotten so used to posting direct from steemit, I have forgotten how to use wordpress :D Looks like I could be going back to school. Good luck with this and congrats on the delegation, that's huge!!

Thanks ! Feel free to hit us up on discord if you have any questions :)

Will do, nice one matey :)

I am already using it, and it's too useful at all! If you are agree I can translate this post for my potential and current Spanish speakers followers as a spanish brand ambassador

Thank you @Steempress-io for this great tool for bloggers

This is really great news. I use wordpress quite a bit. Will try this plugin soon. Thank you for making this available to us.

That is an insane amount of steempower. Look forward to learning more about steempress. thanks.

I've just been made aware of this by @hungryhustle and I just wanted to double check the details.

I've been posting my stuff from Wordpress onto here for over a year, at first I was getting upvotes from the Cheetah bot so I then decided to post my blogs first onto Steemit and then onto Wordpress after. Does this mean that if I install this plug in that I no longer need to post my work into Steemit and it automatically comes up as a Steemit post? Or should I do the same as before? Does this involve the #steempress tag to get noticed as well or would it come up on your radar automatically?


Cool! Glad to hear the network effect is working and that people are learning about SteemPress :)

Right now, our main target users are people like you who we believe we can provide with a more convenient way of posting content from wordpress to steem. So yes, by using steempress you should not need to copy paste the text any more but can instead just post directly from wordpress while taking benefit of our extra features and ability to upvote your posts.

Regarding cheetah. You should not run into any problems if your content is original and not plagiarized from other websites to your blog. I recommend you use our feature that allows you to share a link back to your website at the bottom of the post that is made on steemit. If you still receive a comment, then I suggest you go to their discord server or website to verify your website. One way or another, it should not harm you in any way.

Hope you'll try out and benefit from using SteemPress :)

Hey @lewisjfclarke, apart from what @fredrikaa has mentioned in his comment, you can check out this post from @omitaylor where she explained how you can avoid getting flagged by Cheetah:

Thanks for the shout out. Big research on this because I'm for wide adoption and onboarding wordpress bloggers to steemit. So far it works and no problems if approached as mentioned. Also, just realized how cool it is to have a media library on my wordpress blog for easily adding dividers and signature graphics to my steemit blogs. That's going to save an hour a week. I think this project has a bright future. Thanks for the mention :)

@fredrikka thanks for your reply. I'll have a look into it when I start blogging again.

@hungryhustle I read @omitaylor's post the other day and unless things have changed recently then that doesn't work. I never had problems per se because the cheetah comments were an upvote and not a flag, but I tried posting direct links, writing where and when I had posted before on my Wordpress account but I still got a comment from the bot. Maybe this has changed recently but posting a link, saying where it had come from and pointing out that it was my original content wasn't enough 3 or 4 months ago. Like I said, I never actually got flagged, but seeing a cheetah upvote doesn't look good on the post even when you do clarify multiple times that you have posted on Wordpress previously, so it just became easier to post it on here first and avoid that headache.

@omitaylor good to know that you've tried the Steempress thing and it is working for you. Do you have to pay any money towards it? I'm not really sure what you mean by signature graphics and dividers, all I know is for mine I can copy and paste either direction and it takes me less than 2 minutes. I'm surprised it took you an hour. Unless these signature graphics and divider things you mention are things that can't be copied and take hours to create

Hey @lewisjfclarke, if you post great content then @steempress-io will upvote your post for sure. So @cheetah won't bother you. They do not flag the content without clarifying or warning the users. Also, once you have a f2f with them and get your profile approved, they won't bother at all.

Also, whenever you post through Steempress, there is an option to include a the original WP blog's link. That will also confirm that it has been posted through your own blog using SteemPress.

One more thing you can do. Write a blog post on your WP blog like this:

Haha! I hope you enjoy using it. And this will also solve your problem which you mentioned in your last post. :) Your content is great and you deserve to get better upvotes. Believe me, SteemPress is the key.

That's nice of you to say @hungryhustle. I must admit I have become slightly disillusioned over the last few months trying to direct more people to my blog and enjoying my posts. Maybe this is the tool I need to break the combination lock...

Wow, this is really great, guys and gals from SteemPress! I'm glad I found this plugin some time ago, and I am also glad I was able to report some flaws that you have fixed in no-time. Thank you for creating this plug-in!

Very pleased for you @howo and @fredrikaa : the thing about investment is you have to have belief in the vision, the product and the management team - and so it is no surprise to me that you have received this significant delegation. I had not come across steempress until the London Crypto Currency Show - and the passion and energy for your project came across in bucket loads. All the best for your project.

Good. I'm gonna try the plugin on my website :)
Just curious to test the options out...
Thank you @steempress-io

This sounds great and huge! I definatly have to look into this.

Steemit is my first blogging experience, but if this works the way you describe it, I may just combine the two. Now I need to smarten myself up on how to use wordpress. Got any pointers on that for me?

I would just Google for tutorials, the wordpress community is huge so there is a lot of content out here for you to learn :)

I will do that, thanks for the advise. Hope setting that up will go just as smooth but a bit faster than Steemit.

It is such a wonderful news. I would like to check the Steempress out and may let korean community know it. Thanks for the post!

great achievement! really proud of you guys!!! keep going and growing!!!

Thanks a lot :D

Steempress is so awesome! It makes publishing to Steem super easy :) Thanks for developing this great plugin!

However, I have two feature requests/improvement proposals:

  • I had a bug two days ago that the post wouldn't post, I tried three times and waited and finally set set the delay to 0, but a few hours later three other posts previously scheduled for 10/20/30mins after publishing were posted on Steemit. An option to view scheduled posts and cancel them if needed would be great to have!
  • An option to add a custom signature to the end of the post would be amazing
  • Maybe consider using Steemconnect instead of the posting key to log in since this would be more secure for some wordpress blogs that still run without SSL

Hello !

  • had a bug two days ago : Good point, I'll add that to the todo list

  • Already planned :)

  • Sadly we can't for some technical reasons, But the wordpress blog doesn't have to have ssl for the connection to be secure, it's our api that has to have ssl for the connection to be secure, and we use ssl :)

That sounds great! About SSL, one issue I still see is that the posting key is exposed in the settings and can be stolen if a user logs in to his Wordpress blog (without SSL) and his session is hijacked. Maybe it would make sense to hide it after it has been entered?

From the plugin site:

Like most other apps on STEEM, including esteem, dtube, dsound, dmania, utopian and zappl to name a few, we intend to use benefactor rewards to help run SteemPress. The benefactor rewards is currently set to 10%. In comparison, Dtube and Utopian both take 25% benefactor rewards while Zappl takes 15%.

You seem to be taking 15%. And 2/3 of it is going to your personal accounts rather than the project's account, which seems like it ought to be explained at the very least.

And dtube and utopian no longer take 25% so there is that.

Woops, I forgot to update that thanks for the heads up !

As for why the money goes in our personal accounts is because we simply need to eat. In two months, we'll both leave our day jobs to work full time on steempress and steem.

Also note that the beneficiaries are not the biggest part of the revenue, curation rewards are (like 2-3x more according to my estimates), so most of the money still goes to powering up the account.

Super excited about this. I've been a bit hesitant about using SteemPress because at first it gave me a connection error, then I was a little concerned about formatting (I use a slightly different format on my blog than on Steemit). But I'll definitely be trying it out tomorrow.

Cool ! Feel free to join on the discord if you have any questions :)

Thanks, I'll add you. I don't have any questions now but if I do it's good to know you're there.

wow! this is so radical and i am so glad i heard about it. before steemit, i was very active on wordpress and cannot believe this initiative exists! i am reading up on how to download this plugin now and will share with my friends who create high quality blogs on wordpress. resteemed on steemit, too.

Great ! Tell us how it went :)

Hi @howo, i'm concerned about Steemit outranking my blog if i publish using the plugin. Is there a way to prevent that from happening? Thanks!

Hello, it's a valid concern, I would suggest you use the delay feature and set it to a week. this way google and co will index your blog first and then tag steemit as duplicate content. This way it shouldn't hurt you :)

Thanks :)

I've set it to around 2 days since google crawls my site daily. Hopefully it works. :P

You mean google page rank right? Happened to us before too. Would like to know too.

Yeah Google ranking.

yeeh, I did my first post today on @steempress, it's great to have it. Now, we can make use of our blog, from our personal domain wordpress blog, we can write from there and automatically it is posted to our steemit blog too.
A very convenient, now we write beautifully. Humm.. hehehe.. I am still learning how to really write long content.. But for now, I look for quality post.. Thank you @steempress - great having the Steempress plugin to wordpress blog. Easy installation too.

Thanks !

bonjour, est ce que votre pluggin sera compatible avec gutenberg, la prochaine version de wordpress? merci, bonne journée

Il n'y a pas de raison qu'il ne le soit pas :)

merci pour la réponse

THIS kind of innovation is what crypto needs. Seriously, this kind of innovation - step by step - will usher in adoption

This is a fantastic plugin, I have been using it from my godaddy hosted wordpress site and it makes it so easy. i put my article on my site with a picture and @steampress-io uploads the article directly to steem with the image included.

Congrats on the delegation. At the moment i copy and paste my content from Steemit to WP, but now I will definitely look into doing it the other way round.

Thank you! I'm happy to hear that you will be trying out the plugin and I would be happy to hear from you if you encounter any difficulties or see anything we can do to help you succeed :)

Thanks for the up vote! I'm honored that you considered my post as quality content. Thanks again :)

Wow... This is great.
Killing two beds with one stone. I'll definitely check it out. Hope there is a feature to add tags that reflect in different categories, or it's all just gonna be under "steempress"?

We use the tags that you set on your wordpress blog and set them in steem.

Awesome. Thanks for your revert.

Hey this sounds like a wonderful initiative. I would like to give it a try. I have a pretty consistent blog. How can I be whitelisted?

I also have 2 questions. What's the beneficiary cut for using the plugin, and how is cheetah handled?


The beneficiary is 15% and cheetah shouldn't flag you unless you plagiarize :)

Oh, I read somewhere else it was 10%- yikes. Will update my post.

congrats on the delegation, nice work you guys @fredrikaa @howo !

Wow! Another project that gives the Steem platform adaption to the masses. I'm sure this will create more attention to the Steem ecosystem. I'm sure those WordPress bloggers would love to earn more than their ad revenue, with the same ease of use. Kudos to the team!

This is a great news guys! Congratulations!

Ok ,Let me resteem.

Wow, 1 Million steem power is a lot! This will definitely start off SteemPress with a bang. Thanks for helping to attract new users to Steemit. :-)

The Steemit community is incredible. So many ways to get the world to use Steemit. Excellent job, keep up the great work!

That is great news! I have been using steem press to write all my blog posts lately and it’s very simple and easy to use.

that inspired to build my dream blog.

Hopefully this can attract some more users to steemit, this is a good program.

Thank you! Those are our thoughts too exactly!

Anyone have a confirmation on the fee to use Steempress? Is it 10% or 15%?

I read the Wordpress plugin on my Wordpress website and it says 10% so thanks for the clarification.

How full I can use it soon
I am wordpress lover actually 😄

You can use it today :)

I will definitely try this one because I do have a WordPress account and have already been blogging there a long time ago. Thanks for this platform. Plus the 1M Steem Power delegation will help upvotes very significant to encourage more bloggers to their best in creating informative entries. More power!

Thanks for trying it out! I hope you will like it and that it can benefit you in some way :)

All the creation happening for Steemians By Steemians is so awesome to watch form and grow. Everyday I'm convinced more that we haven't yet seen the potential of this platform. Lots of other projects can only dream of this level of adoption/innovation.

I totally agree! :)

This information is very useful. I want to support this program. And would like to inform all Steemian Indonesia. Am I allowed to translate this post?

Hello @munawar87 ! I'm happy to hear that you find the information useful and want to support us. Do feel free to translate the post properly to Indonesian and post it where ever you like with a link back to this post and with @steempress-io tagged in the text.

Thank you sir. from yesterday i am waiting for an answer. for this important information already posted by my friend @acehpungo into the Indonesian language. I lost fast.

This is amazing. I have a wordpress blog but rarely used because it is difficult to monetize. With this, I hope I can have my own dream blog.
By the way, this SteemPress plugin works for free or premium account?
Thank you @fredrikaa and @howo.

Thank you! I hope this gives you a reason to start up your blog again :)
You need to own your own website, so either a wordpress premium account, or use other alternative hosting options like Bluehost or ovh. There are many options and if you write original content then I'm sure SteemPress will quickly make up for the costs of having your own website.

Very exciting project - will test!You and I have spoken all these words, but for the way we have to go,words are no preparation. I have one small drop of knowing in my soul. Let it dissolve in your ocean.

Thanks! Looking forward to hearing how you find the plugin :) hope it can work well for you!

I heard about this project through @tarazkp post, it is worth giving a trial.

I have been using other steem based apps, I would like to see how it works.

I have a question, does steempress work with free wordpress blog?

Great news. Be sure to put this plugin. I think that SteemPress future.

So Steempress allows people to simply repost the content from their site or blog to Steemit ? I thought content posted on Steemit had to be original ? What is the point of allowing people to simply repost here to gain rewards ? It does not encourage them to use Steemit as their native platform and hence the chances of them engaging with the community here look minimal.
Wont cheetahbot flag eveything as plagiarised? Sorry but Im failing to see the principal here ?

Lots of sites use wordpress. This is a huge understatement.

Lots of content here is utter shit. Lots of content on wordpress sites isn't.

They are hoping to make it convenient to wordpress authors to post their non-shit content to steemit to make content on steemit look better. They are hoping the votes will lure them to use their plugin and steemit.

This is all a good thing for steemit.

Yep, it sounds great until the canonical link issue raises it's ugly head again. Until Steemit INC fix this issue, I'm unlikely to switch my blogs over to steempress-io.

Getting penalized for duplicate content is a real concern with this plugin.

I recommend authors who are concerned about the SEO of their blogs to use our feature that delays posting to steem by a day or two, or even a week, to ensure google credits your own website as the original source.

SteemPress will still upvote your content if it is original and not spam. You can also consider the option that only posts the first few lines of your article with a link to your blog.

Because Steem is not the same as Steemit. By adding your content to the Steem blockchain, you ensure it cannot be censored, you are able to reach new communities and readers, and you are able to earn tokens. The goal is to let Steem, the blockchain, empower wordpress blogs. It is not simply to enable quick double posting to

We collaborate with steemcleaners/cheetah and communities to make sure it is not flagged unless it is proven to be plagiarized from other sources than their website.

Now i just got confused, @fredrikaa (sorry I'm new to Steemit!).

  1. What's the difference between Steemit and Steem blockchain?
  2. When i use the SteemPress plugin, does my post not get reposted directy on my Steemit blog? I guess your talk about Steemit vs. Steem is what's confusing me here.
    Do you mind clearing the air (or pointing me to a resource that does that)?


Steem is a decentralized blockchain on which many applications and websites can be built.
Steemit is a centralized website owned and run by Steemit Inc which displays content posted on the Steem blockchain. Steemit is, and will continue to be for a long time, the most used interface people have to engage with the Steem blockchain. However, it is not at all needed to use or benefit from Steem.

About SteemPress, yes all posts made with SteemPress can be viewed on under the account name that was entered with SteemPress through wordpress.

Thanks for the clarification, @fredrikaa :)

This is a great news for blogger, who write and publish post on Steempress Plugin for Wordpress user.

Thank you! I think so too :)

Since installing SteemPress, I post content more often through wordpress blogs. In addition to convenient to use, we can continue to keep the blog updated @fredrikaa

Thats great. But i need to go a bit deeper to see how exactly this works. Im not familiar with word press so im a bit lost. :D
What i figured so far is that this is more for users outside Steem that use Wordpress which is amazing for the platform.
So to get rewarded by you guys, we basically need to make a wordpress blog and install the steempress addon, right?


You can have a look at my phone tech website this article for example:

I just use the default Wordpress theme and I can have a blog up that looks pretty good but mostly have tons of Addons you can take advantage of. But the key is that Wordpress has a long track record of being able to work and be the real deal. A big key thing that I love with Wordpress is how I can track the amount of web traffic with Google Analytics in a simple smooth interface. The Wordpress settings screen is totally amazing.

Hmm. Does WordPress work on your SEO automatically or does it still all rely on your ability to network your Wordpress blog?
4 dollars a month is nothing, but id still want at least even the smallest amount of return on that.

I think Google is so good that SEO isn't needed 2018 :)

It is both for existing steemians with existing blogs (or who would like to try out having a blog) and for new users who may now feel incentivized to try posting to Steem from their wordpress blogs.

Yes, to get a SteemPress upvote you have to post from a wordpress website with our plugin installed.

This is soo cool, am inviting my friends that run blogs ASAP.

Thank you so much for sharing, interesting post congratulations you do a good job...

Hello everybody is very cool when we heard news like this, congratulations @howo and @fredrikaa

Hi @howo and @fredrikaa.
I'm a fresh Steemian -- not even written my first post, as at the time of writing this.

I've had plans of starting a personal blog for a while now, but not been able to get to it. But on joining Steemit, i decided to make it my prsonal blog.

Seeing this post now, i think I'll want to just go ahead to create my blog on wordpress and use the SteamPress plugin to share it on Steemit.

I however have few questions:

  1. If one has more than one WordPress blog, can the plugin be installed on all of them to repost their content to the same Steemit account/blog?

  2. Will the reposted content be just like the normal Steemit blog update where friends and followers can upvote, comment, etc.

  3. Can tags autoposted be edited or changed manually?


  1. Yes (if any problems with that should occur then let us know, but should be fine)
  2. Yes, we try to make the content converted to be as good as possible for steemit users to enjoy. You will be able to receive upvotes, comments and follows like usual.
  3. We allow you to set tags unique for steemit directly in wordpress with our plugin. They can also be edited afterwards on steemit if you want to change the 4 last tags out of 5.

Oh, That's perfect. The ability to be able to set unique Steemit tags within your plugin is great (instead of automatically pulling tags from Wordpress --- like i read where?).

Now I'm more geared to check the SteemPress plugin out. Sounds cool already! ;)

good job!
This plugin will used for chiness ? @howo @fredrikaa

Can the plugin be used by a Blogger blog?
