To harness the real power of viral marketing for your blog you need the share this plugin. The purpose of this widget is to make it as easy as possible for visitors to share your content with their friends. They can easily add your blog post to the top 20 social networking sites and to their own personal website such as Myspace or Facebook. They can even send your post to another friend’s mobile phone. As you can see, installing the sharethis plugin on your own blog can bring in a lot of viral traffic.
However there is a problem. If you go to the sharethis page that tells you how to install the share this plugin for blogger then your visitors can only promote your home page. This is no good. You need your visitors the ability to share each of your blog post. However finding a plugin that works for blogspot is a friggin pain. But I did find a script that works great for blogger and use it on this blog.
To install the share this plugin for blogger just follow these directions:
First you need to sign into blogger and go to edit HTML and make sure to have the Expand Widgets Template box checked. Then you need to go to http://sharethis.com/publisher and get the sharethis widget for websites. Then you just copy and paste that code just before the closing header tag that looks like:
Ok now that you got that done now just download the other script at Media Fire and just copy and paste that code right after the line that looks like:
<p class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-2'/>
Now just click save template and your blog is ready to be a viral marketing machine.
