So, for this post, I would like to share counter buttons that you can put in your blog post and brag to others about the numbers of people that you have get to help you promote your blog post.


TweetMeme

With more and more people join Twitter and start to get the feel of what Twitter is all about, you should have the TweetMeme button in your blog post. Let others to help you to promote your blog post.

For me,this the easiest way to promote a blog post for you and for those who want to help you.

Facebook Share

I am sure that those who read your blog and who are interested with your article will have Facebook account. Why don’t you take the chance and make full use of it.

With this button, you can know how many times others have share your blog post in the Facebook. This WordPress plugin is superior than other plugins that do the same thing and even the official share button.

It is because it has Analytics page in your WordPress admin. In the page, it will give you the stats for share counts, like counts, comment counts and click counts.

Thank You Counter

The way how this plugin works is almost the same with ‘I Like This’ plugin. However, besides using ‘Thank You’ instead of ‘Like’ , the difference is this plugin offers more flexibility.

Thank you counter

You can change the ‘Thank You’ caption to other words such ‘I Live You’, change the font and color of the caption and change default button with your own image which you should. The default button design is terribly ugly, unfortunately.

    Hey you forgot to mention one you are currently using. But either way I still think this is a great list. Facebook is a great one, blogengage is awesome and so is tweetmem!

    Nice collection Helmi

  2. ariff says:

    ok. Cool! Guess I’m gonna try the I Like This plugin on my blog. Hopefully won’t have any problems with it!

  3. I use Digg Digg but still not satisfy about some missing button such as blogengage and google buzz. I hope the digg digg creator will put that in next update.

  4. Helmi Asyraf (admin) says:

    Actually, I have thought about your button. However, it is not really a WordPress plugin. So, that is why I do not include the blog enggage button in the list.

    By the way, I think it would be great if the button admin panel have more option in it. The users will totally love it.

    What do you think?

  5. Hahaha…. BlogEngage surely is a rock Brian. 😀

  6. Helmi Asyraf (admin) says:

    Hi Dana,

    Maybe the developer have missed about the blog engaga. Brian should pitch about Blog Engage to the develpoer who obviously good in what he do. So, Brian will not have to spend much time to create better Blog Engage button/plugin.

    For Google Buzz, I think it is obviously still new as it just launched. Maybe your wish come true in the next version.

    Hi Helmi,

    Great post! I’m already using TweetMeme and FB Share, and I’ll check out the others.

    I’m curious: Do you have any idea how Mashable implemented the floating share box in the left margin of their posts? Check out http://mashable.com/2010/02/12/social-media-mobile/ Is it a plugin or did they code it in-house themselves?

  8. Helmi Asyraf (admin) says:

    Hi Pam,

    It is great to have you hear.

    Regarding the floating share box, I am pretty sure that they code it in-house themselves to let those button floats in the left margin.

    It is because all the buttons that Mashable uses I believe is the same with plugins that you use for your blog (for the tweetmeme and facebook share).

    You can confirm it by your selves by clicking right click in the page and select ‘View Page Source’. New window will pop out showing the code behind the page. Then, you can simply, search code from tweetmeme by pressing ctrl+F and key in Tweetmeme.

    By the way, thank you for coming to Huzzer Magazine and hope you love it. And, how about you join contest which this is currently having? There are a lot of great prizes for you.

    Hope to see you soon.

    Cheers and have a nice day!

    p/s love reading your latest post about Facebook. It is fascinating 😉

  9. The reactions button looks like it could be really useful, as long as your up for a little criticism like you said. Now what plugin did you use for the becoming a fan on facebook widget type thing?

  10. Helmi Asyraf (admin) says:

    Yah. Sometimes, it is better to let ourselves be let ourselves open to criticism as we can definitely get direct feedback from others. We will also be seen as more transparent and will try at our best to improve ourselves and our blog.

    About the banner in the sidebar, actually it is not a plugin. It is just simple images with links. Then, I arrange all the banners using table in the post editor.

    WordPress is actually not that hard. It is simple. We have to a little bit creative to work around it.

    p/s If you still need the code, send me the email. I will send it to you. No problem with me. Sharing is caring right?

  11. I have run into a few difficulties with wordpress, but overall it a wonderful easy platform for blogging.
    Those panels in the sidebar are really nice, but I won’t take your unique designs :). But you just create the image you want and embed links right?
    I was actually wondering about the one in your footer, I have seen them previously but I am not sure where to get one. But now that I think about it, something like you did with the sidebar self created buttons would be a good way to personalize it a little

  12. Helmi Asyraf (admin) says:

    Thank you for your compliment. Yes, it is just images with links.

    What do you mean by the one on footer? The OBOX? It is the place where I bought this theme actualy.

  13. Kushal Chap says:

    Actually I think the Mashable effect is a plugin and not a custom made. I have seen some sites use the same effect. One of them is: http://abduzeedo.com/ , I will look more into it.

  14. Kushal Chap says:

    Nice list. Do you know which one http://www.abduzeedo.com/ uses.

  15. Helmi Asyraf (admin) says:

    I think it is simply a TweetMeme plugin. For others, they are just image with link which are being put into the blog through CSS.

  16. ariff says:

    The I Like It plugin is nice. I’m having this habit of liking my own posts. Haha~ Kind of fun doing that..

    You should update for the Google Buzz button also

  17. Kushal Chap says:

    I don’t think google buzz is popular enough for you to put it right now.

  18. Mike says:

    I have the official facebook share button on my blog. I notice it has a little number next to it letting people know how many times others have shared it.

  19. ariff says:

    Don’t think it is popular enough among Malaysians yet. 95% of my blog traffic comes from Malaysia

  20. Tinh says:

    Cool list, I have known most of them except the suggestions and reactions

  21. High-Tech says:

    hai,
    Good work, thanx 4 plugins

  22. Kushal Chap says:

    Oh, I have never noticed it before.

  23. Ok, so you know the Digg Digg plugin already 🙂 Gonna give that Facebook Share (New) Button a try.

  24. Cool. What about del.ico.us , Blog engage … and many more used these days. Chk out my site. Great info. Thanks
