Social buttons for sharing content on platforms are a great plugin for any website or blog, because they offer users a tool with which to share the content they enjoy with others and, at the same time, allow webmasters to generate traffic and improve participation.

Social buttons allow us to provide users with an easy way to share our content.

Social networks generate between 0.8% and 12.2% website traffic. Indeed, news and current affairs sites get most of their traffic from social networks and also from Google Discover.

One way to drive traffic to a website is to invite users to share content on social media. For those looking for how to implement social buttons, here is the best way to do it.

Where to implement social buttons on a website?

Social buttons should be implemented on all content that is easier to share or more likely to be liked by users. This way, they should appear in all blog posts, as well as news and also on product description pages or even landing pages.

However, web pages with a specific call to action, for example a “landing page” to promote a service, whose call to action is “subscribe” or “schedule a meeting”, since we want clicks to go to call to action button not social buttons.

How to place social buttons?

First of all, most CMS like WordPress already include this type of button by default. In case they don’t include them, we should speak to our website developer to include them.

On the other hand, most social networks have their own social buttons. For example, Twitter offers different types of buttons to send private messages, share on Twitter or mention a specific user, and Facebook also has its own button configurator that we can include on any website.

Finally, we also have the option of using plugins with social buttons. These are usually very simple to use and with a wide variety of customization options that allow us to make them very striking.
