Hi All,

I was wondering what your experience is with the best location for social sharing buttons? I'm thinking to include a floating social bar on the left side as I think this would increase likes and share. What do you guys think?

Ps: anyone know a good floating bar plugin for wordpress? It seems most of them either slow your website down or have many bugs.

Thx,
Jan.

    The best place is the top right or floating would also have a great impact on the visitors who would be visiting the page.

    Hey Jan,

    Yes, I agree that you will need to put your social buttons at the top right of the page. Because this is the first place that gets attention when someone visits your site, this will get you the best results when sharing your content.

    Also, I searched a little about the Floating Social Bar WordPress Plugin and I came across some really great reviews about it boosting the rates at which content is shared.

    Hope this helps you out!

    I like to put them above and below each post in my blog, some people think it clutters about but if your posts are long enough it separates them nicely

    The top right is the most common place social buttons are located at so I guess it would be practical to do the same because of the familiarity.

    Put your social buttons on the top right side of your website. most websites have it there so people will most likely look for it there. however if social media sharing buttons on certain posts can be on the left bottom of the title or at the end of the post.

    Have you considered using a content locker on some of your more high value content pages that would require the reader to share or tweet your page or link to unlock? This technique is used on some popular blogs with success and puts the social sharing buttons directly in front of the user and gives them good reason to use.

    Top left is also as useful - anything that is central is good.
