Add Social Bookmarking Links to Blogger

Monday, December 03, 2007

Social Bookmarking has been gaining momentum from a very long time. Its an effective way to improve traffic to your website without costing you a penny. So, if you have good content and feel that people would want to bookmark your page, help them by adding links to bookmark your posts on the various social bookmarking websites.

Here's how to do it:

1. Open your Blogger template and select 'Edit HTML'.
2. Check the box which says expand widget templates.
3. Find the HTML element with class name post-footer or any appropriate element where your post footers are placed.
4. Copy paste the following code between the HTML tags:

<a expr:href='"http://digg.com/submit?phase=2&amp;partner=fb&amp;url="
+ data:post.url + "&amp;title=" + data:post.title'>Digg this!</a>
| <a expr:href='"http://del.icio.us/post?v=4&amp;url=" + data:post.url + "&amp;title=" + data:post.title'>Save on del.ico.us</a>
| <a expr:href='"http://www.stumbleupon.com/submit?url=" + data:post.url
+ "&amp;title=" + data:post.title'>Stumble it!</a>
| <a expr:href='"http://reddit.com/submit?url=" + data:post.url + "&amp;title=" + data:post.title'>Reddit it!</a>

So, improve your search engine rankings and drive in more visitors to your blog by putting these links beside your posts on Blogger.

Happy Blogging !!!

Hi there
I am a html-idiot.
Can you kindly tell me where exactly should I put the code?

hi george,

it depends on where you want these links in your posts... you can find the <data:post.body/> tag in your template and copy the code just below it, to make it appear below your posts.

I still can't find where to paste the code. This is the only part where I could find data and post by each other:


.post-body {
margin:0 0 .75em;
line-height:1.6em;
}

.post-body blockquote {
line-height:1.3em;
}

.post-footer {

Please help! Thanks.

@Ivan

I guess you are not selecting the expand widget checkbox. The code you mentioned is just the CSS on top of the page. When you will expand the widget template you'll find the elements with the required code.

social bookmarking is a big deal with good reason.To get one of your posts to the front you have to get readers vote for it,and what better way to encourage vote than provide a link right on your website.
