    Why do you not like the sliding buttons Jeff?

    Are you saying that easy sharing methods are mostly contingent on the plug-in and share buttons? Are there any other methods you’d recommend for increasing share power, outside of the available widgets?

    Thanks for the comment Paul. I like the analogy about the restaurant!

    Thanks for the comment LaTonya. I have looked for stats in the past to validate sharing buttons. I have personally seen the significant benefit to this blog but 3rd party research is great to have.

    Thanks for the post, I didn’t realise that so many sites didn’t have sharing buttons.  I think it’s one of those jobs that keeps falling to the bottom of the list even though it is potentially a quick one!

    If I’m reading the chart correctly, it says “social links/plugins” on HOME page.  Not sure how many sites have share-able content on the home page.  But it is surprising they don’t at least have a link to their Facebook page or Twitter page or LI page.

    The text discussion says “nearly half . . . don’t have social SHARING.”  Actually, it’s possible (but I guess unlikely) they might have SHARE icons on internal pages with more share-able content.  On our site, for example, we have link icons to our various social media pages on every page of our site (including the home page), but we only have SHARE icons on internal content pages.

    Thanks for the great content, one report or case study I wish I could see is on positioning of the buttons. I know that having them there is the first step but I wonder conversion wise what spots for buttons have the highest conversion?

      Thanks for the comment Natasha. If you want an example of best practice for the types, placement and which social media sharing buttons are the most important, go and visit either Mashable.com or HuffingtonPost.com

    There are still a lot of companies that think a regular old website is ok. The ability to ignore the impact of social media is declining. This will be the year when smaller businesses begin to catch up and everyone begins to realize you have to have social media buttons attached to your site. Better yet add a blog to increase your SEO. There are some really great sites popping up where you can create a fast simple website linked to all your social media sites. Here’s two of them. I hope it’s ok i’m sharing the links.

    Yeah. Especially sites that have good content and the only way to share it is through weird buttons like “Buffer”….. This article is great, but I can’t share it on twitter unless i sign up for buffer, I hate buffer. Don’t put limitations on sharing. The easier to share, the more shares. (I did not share this article, but would if there was a twitter share button)

    The design and placement of the buttons are also very important. But its important to know that every website is different so you cannot fully rely on studies. You must try out alternatives on your site and work out what works best. On some sites, floating bar produces better results but on most standard share buttons below the title and end of the post work best.

    Hi Jeff! It’s a must to have social media sharing buttons on your website / blog nowadays but… why do you have on this blog duplicate social sharing buttons (2x tweet, 2x G+1, 2x facebook share, etc)?
