AddThis is a great, free service that allows you to put social media links on your website for free, such that visitors can easily share your webpage on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc (for an example, look at the upper-right hand corner of any page at Delcour Solutions - AddThis generated the code for that row of buttons). With the recent launch of Google Plus One (a service that allows visitors to share their love of your website with Googledom), I wanted to add a Plus One button to my AddThis row of social media links. Unfortunately, AddThis has yet to implement a Plus One button in a format that I like, so I had to figure out how to manually implement the button amongst my existing buttons.
1. Locate the code for your AddThis button on your web page and insert the following code:
<a class=”addthis_button_google_plusone” g:plusone:size=”standard” g:plusone:count=”false”/></a>
2. Edit the “size” field with either “small,” medium,” “tall,” or “standard.” In the example above, you can see that I chose “standard.”
3. Edit the “count” field. “True” will give you a counter, “false” will remove the counter.
The end product looks great. Again, thanks to Mark Shu!
