“Ooooohhhhhh Ahhhhhhhhh! The magic floating social buttons on those big websites… I want! I want!”
A magician never reveals his tricks but I will – I’ll do anything for a few likes (OK, almost anything).
Social signals such as Google +1 (Plus One) have always enabled and encouraged sharing of web content. Now, they are an important ranking factor in SEO. Recently, Google added data on these social indications to Google Analytics as well as Google Webmaster Tools.
Per Google, the +1 (Plus One) button can now benefit your organic and paid search results and this can be implemented along with Social Sharing Buttons to allow visitors to share content across intended pages.
Here’s the code for magic floating Google+1, Twitter and Facebook “Like” buttons:
NOTE: You can change positions with any of these codes by switching out the code after the ‘fixed;’ code above.
(TOP RIGHT USE:) margin-top:1%; margin-left:93%;
(TOP LEFT USE:) margin-top:1%; margin-left:1%;
(BOTTOM LEFT USE:) margin-top:20%; margin-left:1%;
(BOTTOM RIGHT USE:) margin-top:20%; margin-left:93%;
You can also place the buttons side-by-side by replacing all of the “<br>” with “ ” above.
I hope I helped you out. Hey, give me a Plus One? Just testing it out…
