AddThis is yet another Social Bookmarking plugin for WordPress available online. What’s best about this is that it’s for FREE. With this, you’d be able to promote your content by sharing to the most popular social networking and bookmarking sites like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, etc.
You can easily track what your visitors are doing when and how they share your site. Moreover, you can also compare different countries to see what each country is using the most. With this plugin, you’ll be given a library of custom icons made by 3rd party designers.
Using the Addthis plugin is easy and so far I am impressed with the results on my other sites. If you want to know where and how often your content is shared, this is the tool to use as it provides comprehensive statistics. However, unlike other social bookmarking/sharing plugins, it doesn’t allow you to display any number of the available services, as it only displays 4. I guess (have not tried it), you have to modify its code to make it display more services.
- Makes sharing easy
- Get more traffic with the most popular social networking sites
- Easy to use and install
- It’s for FREE
There’s no better way to put sharing button to your website using AddThis plugin. It’s free, easy to use, install, and implement. What more can you ask for? However, some are saying that its web-site style plugin is much better as it is easy to customize, and even people with a very limited knowledge of HTML, can use it. This wordpress style is almost non-customizable. At first, I had a problem adding Google Plus One button with my Joomla plugin. But thanks to the Addthis forum for providing a solution, and all you have to do is add it to the Toolbox Services field as ‘google_plusone’.
