Build Traffic From Add Social Bookmark Buton in Every Blogger Post

The AddThis button is a very useful social bookmarking and sharing tool. With just a couple of mouse clicks, anyone can share a blog post or article via their social networking accounts, e-mail or blogs. Use it to increase traffic to your blog.

1. Open an AddThis account for free. Supply a username, password and e-mail address. Check on "E-mail me a weekly analytics report" if you so desire. Once you have registered, you can create an AddThis button.

2.Create an AddThis button. You can use the default code, but it's better to customize it to get the look you prefer. See the "Resouces" link at the bottom of this article for a link that lets you create your own button.

3. Go through the AddThis button wizard step-by-step. Specify Blogger as the medium you will be using it in. Next, choose the appearance you would like for your bookmarking and sharing button. Choose a familiar button that your readers will recognize. You can also select an RSS feed button besides to further increase traffic to your blog.

4. Preview your button. You will see the preview on the upper right side of the screen. Test it to see how it works. You will see links to all kinds of social bookmarking sites.

5. Get the code. Click on the gray button near the bottom of the screen.

6. Install to Blogger Sidebar. If you want to do this, you will be taken to the Blogger site so you can add an AddThis widget to your blog's sidebar.

7. Copy the code to your Blogger template. Right-click and select the AddThis code. Log in to your Blogger account. Go to Layout - Edit HTML. Search for "<div class='post-footer'>" or "<data:post.body/>" (without quotes) and insert the AddThis code after either line. You will now have an AddThis button in every blog post!
