But how can you urge your blog readers to share your article after reading? Simply by installing a social share plugin/mod will do the trick.

Here is the deal – If I come to your site and I find your article interesting enough, I will leave a comment and make sure I share the post to my social networks using the social button found on your blog. But what if you don’t have a social share button plugin on your blog? Then I guess you won’t get that much share that you had hoped for, right?

Okay, here is the truth – I have been to so many blogs that doesn’t have the “Social Share” button. Reason? Best known to them 🙂 but the truth is, if a visitor comes to your blog through search engine or other means and finds your post interesting enough, he is likely going to drop a comment and probably share the post with his or her friends. But if you don’t have a share button, that visitor might not share that interesting article of yours… you just lost one source of referral traffic 🙂

  1. Hi Babanature,

    You are absolutely right 🙂

    It is frustrating when you read and like a post, comment on it, and wish to share it but find no social share button! I visit a lot of blogs who face this problem and usually I message and tell them to add the share buttons.

    But I like this option, though it would only work on FireFox, which I don’t use all that much. Wonder if they have a similar setting for Chrome too?

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead 🙂

    • Hello Harleena,

      You got that right, some bloggers just don’t care if their blog is being shared or not. and to me, that’s bad.

      I am in love with firefox because it has all what i need especially for bloggers who do codding from time to time 🙂

      Indeed, i will make a research and see if chrome has same feature 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by and dropping your comment. Have a blessed week ahead

  2. Hello Babanature,

    This is indeed a nice and lovely post every blogger using the Firefox browser should know.

    I have never used this feature because i never knew Firefox would create something as awesome as the share this page.

    I do share other bloggers site and this post just made everything a lot easier.

    Thanks for the post bro…

    • Hello Christy,

      AH… Good to know that you’re also a lover of Firefox. I guess we’re in the same boat 🙂

      Thank for the comment and for finding the post useful… I really do appreciate.

      Do have a wonderful week ahead…

  3. The Share this Page button was already on the toolbar, but shaded out. I tried removing and re-adding, but still remains shaded out and does nothing when I try to click on it. That PLUS sign does not appear beneath it.
