Adding social media buttons and share buttons into a website or blog is very crucial for better approach to your visitors. Adding these buttons will help you reach more visitors and also it will generate some good traffic. Adding these buttons into a website or blog in WordPress is very easy. But this is not the case with Blogspot or Blogger blog or website. Either you have to have a good knowledge of css and html to work with Blogger JavaScript/html gadget.

When i started with blogger i was able to find many different types and ways of adding social media and share buttons on internet. But i was not satisfied with the user experience of some the services and the better ones have to be paid or have limitations on free product. I also tried direct adding buttons directly into the page (with basic knowledge of HTML) but failed very badly.

Then i get know about a service which is free and offers very good tools to add to your website and yes without any limitations. The site namely Addthis.com impressed me ! Over a period of time, i liked it very much. One of the great thing about this is, that they provide all tools for free and have analytics also.
