How to add social bookmark buttons to new blogger blog

Social bookmarks are a very powerful tool to get traffic to you blog. When you provide this option for your readers, you are allowing them to easily save links to your blog. These Social bookmarks can be found by others and they may visit you blog and you will also get some inbound links to you blog.

I have only added some of the many Social bookmarks site out there but when you know how to add them to you blog, you can easily add more if you want to.

You can look at the buttom of my posts to see how social bookmark buttons will look like.

How to social bookmark buttons

To place the social bookmark buttons at the footer of every post you have to edit your template HTML code and check "Expand Widget Templates" to find the code to replace. When you have checked "Expand Widget Templates" you have to find:

<p class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-3'/>

Here is the code you have to paste:

<p class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-3'>
Submit in: <a expr:href='"" + data:post.url + "&title=" + data:post.title' target='_blank' title='Bookmark This to'><img alt='' height='16' src='' style='border:none;padding:0px;' width='16'/></a><a expr:href='"" + data:post.url' target='_blank' title='Add to Technorati Favorites'><img alt='Add Story To Technorati' height='16' src='' style='border:none;padding:0px;' width='16'/></a><a expr:href='"" + data:post.url' title='Digg This Story!'><img alt='Digg This Story' height='16' src='' style='border:none;padding:0px;' width='16'/></a><a expr:href='""+ data:post.url + "&title=" + data:post.title' title='Bookmark to Google'><img alt='Add to Google' height='16' src='' style='border:none;padding:0px;' width='16'/></a><a expr:href='"" + data:post.url + "&title=" + data:post.title' title='Add to reddit'><img alt='reddit' height='16' src='' style='border:none;padding:0px;' width='16'/></a></p>

One of the next days I’m going tell how to add social bookmarks to the old blogger. If you are using some other blog platform you have to edit the code to make it work with the blog platform you are using.
