You've made some important points. I think most important is not setting the buttons properly. Get Social and smart sharing are the best plugins to add social floating buttons. Thanks for sharing this great post here. Mavis 3196 days ago Reply Thanks very much, Dev. I love smart sharing! All the best, Mavis OliverTausend 3199 days ago Reply Hi Mavis, thanks for sharing your insights. The worst way of displaying social media buttons is displaying none ! Installing those was one of the first things I did when creating my blog. I certainly have to reconsider my strategy because I use the DiggDigg plugin at the top and SexyBookmarks at the bottom. However, how often do we get the question how people can generate more traffic on their blogs. You visit their blog and see not one social media button. It seems that they have never been on another blog before ?! I also agree with you that asking for sharing is important – the call to action. Take care Oliver Mavis 3199 days ago Reply Hi Oliver, I agree. I don’t understand why some bloggers fail to display sharing buttons with social media so huge. That’s right, ask and you shall receive Thanks for coming by and for adding value to this discussion. All the best, Mavis Susanna 3194 days ago Reply Those are great tips Mavis. Asking is the one I need to work more on. Thank you! Susanna Mavis 3193 days ago Reply Hi Susanna, ASK you shall receive Let me know how it goes for you… Thanks for stopping by and for you kind words. All the best, Mavis Liz 3194 days ago Reply Hi Mavis, I’ve made those mistakes myself. I uploaded the smart sharing plugin and I love it. I’m just trying to decide which side to put it on. Right now I’ve got it on the left side of my blog like you, but Devesh tells me it’s better to put it on the right. I’ll just have to experiment with that a little. Thanks for another great post, Liz Mavis 3193 days ago Reply Hi Liz, I’m glad to hear that you are loving smart sharing, it’s awesome. I think it looks fine on the left, since you have widgets etc. on the right. Thanks for stopping by and for sharing your experience, Liz. All the best, Mavis HeatherCStephens 3194 days ago Reply Hi Mavis, Brilliant again. Great post and one that's very needed. I didn't realize how much my sharing buttons were being ignored having them at the top of my posts, until I put them on the bottom. It blew me away how many more shares I received. I just added the sliding side bar share buttons to my blog and I'm loving them. Way cool. Thanks for the great information! Heather Mavis 3193 days ago Reply Thank you so much, Heather. Your experience goes to show that the location of the share button does influence how your content gets shared and the actual number of votes you get. I’m glad that you’re now using the floating bar, so cool! I appreciate your comment, Heather.
