WordPress to Sina Weibo 微博 Automatic Posting

I recently discovered a way to post (automatically) from WordPress to Sina Weibo 微博(China’s version of twitter, which has more than half a billion users!)

The trick is to use IFTTT.com (If this then that).


1) Setup up publicize for WordPress to Twitter. (WordPress.com can do this automatically).

2) Go to IFTTT.com, and set up a recipe from Twitter to Weibo. (There is a premade template for that, takes less than 5 minutes to sign up)


There may be a way for WordPress –> Weibo direct posting, I am still researching on that. (Update: Yes, there is a recipe for direct WordPress –> Weibo too!) It depends on whether you want a short summary, in which case WordPress –> Twitter –> Weibo may suit you better. If you want a full text, then WordPress –> Weibo is great. Or, you can use both!

Hope it is helpful!

  1. I don’t have a Weibo account. Do I need to sign up an account at Weibo first or would signing up at IFTTT.com would automatically create a Weibo account for me?

    Also, is it difficult to gain followers in Weibo if I don’t post contents in Chinese?

    1. Hi, you would need to sign up an account at Weibo first. I think a good percentage of the half billion Chinese would know English, it’s worth a try! The IFTTT can post to reddit and digg too, it’s an amazing website.

      1. Ah yes, it’s really worth a try. WordPress isn’t blocked in China, right? haha.

        I receive quite a good traffic from Reddit though others advised me that digg is not that popular anymore.

      2. WordPress.com sites are blocked in China sadly 😦
        If you have a custom domain it’s not blocked. There’s a considerable number of Taiwanese and HK people using Weibo too.

      3. I have been using Reddit for a few years now and I’m quite active there. So, maybe, I have more leeway but of course, I’m not sure. So far, I haven’t been shadow banned in Reddit though.
