Blog Post Social Bookmarking Buttons

This is way overdue, but we finally found some time to develop them. We now also provide social bookmarking buttons that you can include in all your blog posts. This will make it easy for your readers to quickly bookmark a story from your blog (and promote it to the social bookmarking services). For an example of the buttons, look right below this post.

To get your button, go here. What you need to do is include the code we provide into the template of your blog. When you do that, it will automatically add the AddThis bookmarking button in all your posts (past and future). We support TypePad and MovableType, Blogger, and WordPress. More platforms will also be supported soon.

It’s easy to add the button to Blogger and WordPress. With TypePad it’s a little bit trickier. If you have TypePad and use their ‘Basic Template’, you first need to convert it into an ‘Advanced Template’. If you need help you can always contact TypePad Support; tell them that you want to add the AddThis social bookmarking button at the bottom of your blog posts. They will be able to help you.

On another note, if you haven’t noticed, we also recently added a ‘Demo Area’ to the AddThis website. This area shows some examples of websites and blogs that have included our buttons. Take a look!

Add This is really taking off. Everybody love our buttons. This is very encouraging. By the way, if you find a bug or would like to make suggestions for new features, remember, there is a form for it. We keep hearing great things about our buttons. If you don’t like something about them, please let us know, we want to hear that too. Here is the form again.

Have a great social day!

    I like this post and I have gone ahead and bookmarked it on Digg.com so everone on my email list can read your post as well. I used your own blog title as the entry on Digg and I might add it to one of my Squidoo pages as a link if the reaction from my email list is good. Thanks again, Great stuff.
