I added sharethis icon on one of my sites about couple of months ago, as of right now, it has 5668 shares on the main page.

There are over 3 million pages on the website, and lot of pages have that number more then 0 (I have no way of knowing all the numbers on all the pages).

I really don't know what all that means though. I don't see any difference in traffic though, so whoever is sharing things to whatever sites, it's not working :-)

So, my question is, am I just wasting realestate on my header?

    Obviously with that many legit shares you should be seeing more traffic. However, it'd be interesting to know if that share count is just from people who have clicked on the share button, or if it's calculating everywhere that page has been shared even if it wasn't just through their button.

      I don't think they can calculate anything but their button clicks.
