SHARE:

The rapid advancement and development of Social Media and growing interest of people in social networking sites has given birth to dozens of social sharing tools and services. Web masters are getting addicted to these tools because unlike organic traffic from search engines,
web traffic from social channels have overtaken search traffic. Bloggers today depend largely on networks like Facebook, Google plus and twitter to drive traffic to their blogs. These tools are good only if they can attract a visitor to bookmark and share your content. From your website quality content till your blog design, every single bit counts in turning a visitor into a follower. To help you with your dream of increasing  fans and readers we bring you "Touch Me". Its named such due to its appealing look that forces a visitor to roll hover the cursor over the icons and hit follow! :) This gadget is neatly structured using buttons from popular services like Google Plus, Facebook, Twitter and RSS. We have coded it neatly using basic HTML and some spicy CSS styles.

Where should you add it?

Its is standard practice to add social counters inside posts and social sharing buttons in a sidebar. I would therefore advise that you add this widget towards the top right section of your blog above all ads and gadgets.
