33 social bookmarking codes for your blog

August 7, 2009 | No Comments Yet

ProBlogDesign has compiled a list of codes you can use for automatically saving your blog posts on popular social bookmarking sites such as Delicious, Digg, Facebook, StumbleUpon, Technorati, and more—33 all in all.

The codes are made especially for WordPress theme files, making use of post title and permalink template tags instead of having to install special plugins. The upside to this method is having complete control of what displays on your blog, plus it takes up less resources compared to a plugin version, like Sociable or ShareThis. Either way, social bookmarking is a popular and oft-recommended way to get your posts out there, so make sure you have this feature on your blog.
