Two questions about using Tumblr widget

I am thinking about replacing my Yola blog with the Tumblr widget, but before I do I have a couple of questions.

1) Will the things that I post on Tumblr be seen as new content on my website by Google Analytics?

2) I use Blog Lovin' on my blog right now for people to follow me and get updates for my new blog posts. Do you know if Blog Lovin' will recognize and update with my Tumblr content?

Hello farragio

I'm afraid that I won't be able to give you clever answers to your questions. I'm not sure if Google Analytics will see your Tumblr posts displayed by the Tumblr Widget as new content. Your best bet may be to ask Google Analytics Support if they can say anyting about this.

I don't know Blog Lovin', but If you have been successfully using it with your Tumblr blog, it should keep working as before. Blog Lovin' won't need to work with your Tumblr Widget because it can stay connected with your Tumblr blog which you will need to keep editing and updating from your Tumblr account.

Hi Stefan, thanks for the reply.

I will contact GA support and see what they have to say.

I think you're correct about Blog Lovin' and am giving myself a thump in the head for that not occurring to me :)

Got a response from Google and mostly likely Google wouldn't see the Tumblr content on my website, but if it did it would consider it "duplicate content". Just thought I would add this update in case the info helps anyone else. :)

Hi farragio,

We actually spoke to this concern in a recent blog post and shared our suggestion for avoiding the duplicate content concern while still generating fresh content for your website.
