The answer is simple.
Add social networking sharing buttons — specifically the Tweet button!
BrightEdge released a report this month with all sorts of great data about social sharing statistics gathered from the top 10,000 websites. You can find the basics plus a link to download the whole thing here: http://seo-blog.brightedge.com/general/september-brightedge-socialshare-report-the-marketing-benefits-of-social-buttons/
A quote from the report:
“It’s clear that social sharing buttons can drive real social traffic that will inevitably drive sales, brand awareness or even affinity but it’s also clear that many brands are not taking advantage of this simple, cost free tool,” said Jim Yu, CEO of BrightEdge.
Have you got your social sharing buttons installed yet? It’s easy!
If you’re on WordPress, just choose the plugin you want to use (I am using SexyBookmarks and DiggDigg currently, but there are lots of great choices out there).
If you’re not on WordPress, check out the options that are available to you. AddToAny.com or ShareThis.com may work well.
Take 10 minutes and do them now. It’ll be one of the best choices you’ve made for your website — ever. Plus, then I can tweet your website easily and I appreciate that, as will your other visitors. :)
If you use s sharing plugin for WordPress or another option on your website, which one do you like and why?
As a reader, which options are you most likely to use? Do you Tweet? Stumble? Like?
