Share buttons for Blogspot users [New Feature]

Every blogger likes to share their post with social networking sites, for that most pro as well as hobby blogger add some popular social media share buttons to their blogs. But for blogspot/blogger platform users it is really a difficult process to add share button for blogger. Because we need to do all the things manually and we need to have some knowledge about html to add it properly.

Now blogger users don’t need to worry about adding social media share buttons to blogger blogs because Google itself launched their own share button for blogger. So, blogger now don’t need to take care of adding share widget to their blog.

Google officially launched it’s own share button for blogger/blogspot users to share there content/post to social media websites. But at present Google added only few share buttons for blogspot users, they are Email share button, Blog this share button, Twitter share button, facebook share button and Google buzz share button.

I think they have missed Digg, Stumbleupon, Reddit,Delicious and Buzz Up! share buttons, and also they have added some most non used buttons like Google Buzz and Blog this share buttons (in my opinion).

Anyway, if you’re a blogspot user, then now onwards you can easily add social media share buttons to your blog in a easy method, without editing you blog template code. Also this share button for blogger may work with default template and you may get problem in custom template. I have seen some custom template users not able to add this share buttons to their blog.

    First we needed to use Javascripts for this purpose in Blogger platform. Now it will be very easy!

      Hello amit, I have seen your blog and your blog looks cool as well your blog is having fully original article. If you have original article on your blog then you can receive some good number of traffic but you’re not getting any traffic it’s because of your post is not optimised for search engine. Until and unless your post is optimized for search engine, you won’t receive good traffic from search engine. And also I suggest you to participate in community with same or related topic blog content by posting comment on other blogs so, it helps in SE ranking. For doing well in SE we need to optimize our each and every post with related Keyword, otherwise you many lose some good traffic from SE.

        Dude here I’m not seeing any such issues, my replay to the above comment ends with “otherwise you many lose some good traffic from SE.” line. If you’re seeing that line than you’re reading my full comment. If not, please tell me which browser u are using? if possible provide the screenshot.. so that I can fix it.

    Thanks for this. I followed the directions exactly but the buttons refuse to appear. Would you know where I could turn for help? Does Blogger have a tech support? Thanks!

    I have done my own template for my blog and now I try to add the share buttons the way you’re explaining here in this page and it’s not working.
    Is there another way to do it?
