Synchronising HubSpot and WordPress blogs

SOLVE
Occasional Contributor

Hi, does anyone know of any third party integrations? We are an SEO agency and don't want to use a HubSpot subdomain for obvious reasons, but love the tools. 

 

Please focus responses on the synchronisation questions as not wanting to go down a rabbit hole discussion on subdomains etc.

 

Mirroring or synchronisation options and suggestions appreciated.

 

HubSpot Blog Pros

  • Automate monthly (also daily or weekly) automated blog recap emails
  • Have your blog fully integrated with all of your HubSpot CTAs, Forms & Fields
  • Simple blog analytics for you and clients

Blog Sub Domain Cons

  • Moving the blog to another subdomain may cause in a loss of traffic and rankings for our blog
  • The HubSpot blog does not give you control of metadata that certain WordPress plugins can give you
  • Author pages will not be no-indexed and can lead to duplicate content and faulty crawl reporting (this has been fixed to some extent)

To clarify, you want the blog to live in both places? Publish from HubSpot, but they actually show up on your WordPress blog?

 

I know where you're coming from as it relates to subdomains, which is why we moved everything to the HubSpot CMS about 2 years ago. It was a great move for us!

You could potentially just use the RSS feed from HubSpot to pull them into WordPress (using RSS Post Importer - or similar), but given your desire to avoid sub-domains and 301 redirects, I would recommend just hosting your blogs on WordPress and ensure the HS tracking code exists on those posts. 

 

If others have a better solution, cool...but I'm not aware of others. 


Best of luck!

Hi

For the same reason, we are experimenting with a tool called Storychief.  It sounds promising since it can publish the blog posts in different media automatically, Wordpress & Hubspot included.

Have a look at https://storychief.io/

 

Take care

Josh, 

 

We've built a plugin for WordPress that extends WP search into HubSpot content, included is also a widget that pulls any number of recent posts from HubSpot. 

 

I know I am a little late to reply to this thread, but this could be another solution as it does not store any HS data in WP, all HS post content is inserted into WP search on the fly.

 

In addition to blogs, we've added forms, ctas, links, and files.

 

Have a look, maybe this will help future issues with WordPress/HubSpot management
