Email subscriptions and push notification subscriptions are essential for a stable and excellent wordpress site. This is similar to YouTube 's subscription notifications and the follow - up of SNS, which leads users to visit again. This is a good way to reduce traffic and search engine dependency.
Among them, push notification subscriptions are much more efficient than email subscriptions because they do not require an email address and are made with a single click, resulting in a much higher subscription conversion rate and persistence rate. Users who do not have the habit of checking e-mail will also have access to the cloud because they will have a message like Katok on their mobile, so the actual return rate will be even higher.
However, unlike e-mail subscription, push notifications are inevitably difficult to manufacture and operate by themselves, and maintenance costs are inevitable. Why did you make the GKKmon site, and what is the most important thing when setting up your blog? As you can see, it's not pleasant to use these dependencies on your site, but because there is no alternative at this time, I will use the one-service OneSignal, which is the most stable service in the field. If you do not really like to have dependencies like GKKmon, you might find it more effective to use the service in terms of ongoing updates, maintenance, and management tools and features.
