Social Bookmarking

March 14th, 2006
Social Media Icons

Apparently it is all the rage. If you’re not hip enough to know what social bookmarking is or why it is the next big thing well, you’ll just have to become more enlightened.

The other day while looking for something new to read online I googled “SEO blog“, but without the brackets. On the second page I found SEO Blackhat and one of his postings which was about social bookmarking. He even came up with a little HTML/PHP to make adding social bookmarking buttons to your WordPress blog easier. As cool as that is, somebody is working on a full fledged plugin, which just may be added to blog.muschamp.ca in the near future.

Update: I’ve maintained this blog for over 8 years and have tried many different plugins and code snippets. After using Digg Digg for years I switched to Professional Share as it integrates well with Google Analytics.


  • There is a growing backlash against the overabundance of social bookmarking services and the barrage of icons that appear after blog posts. Rather like my complaints that there are too many social networking sites.

    I tried to update from WP-Socialable 0.35 to Socialable 1.2 but I was unable to get the icons to look like they used too. Either all the browsers I have weren’t updating my changes to .css or there is some serious cross-mojonation going on.

    I’ve deactivated them, it seems whenever I try to change my theme or add or remove or even update a plugin things break. I’ve gotten several version behind WordPress now because of this. Gravatars are also messed up but the problem is at Gravatar.com not Muschamp.ca
