Best Places to Put Twitter Share Button and Retweet Button

Tweet share buttons are used to share a piece of text (your current blog) with your friends and followers.  A retweet sends a blog that you just received to your followers, a bit like passing something on.

Bloggers use Twitter to promote text and blogs of their own, and with the addition of buttons you can make sure that text is shared and re-shared a lot easier.

If you re-tweet a blog piece then the traffic and credit goes to the person who made it originally.  On the other hand when people retweet your stuff then you get the credit, so it is a little bit of give and take.  You get two button types to retweet with.

This is how you add the buttons to your blog:

Goto Layout > Edit Html > Expand Widgets > Press Ctrl+F >Search For Below Codes

<p><data:post.body/></p>

Add the code you see below:

<p><data:post.body/>
<div style='float:right; margin-left:10px;'>
<script type="text/javascript">
tweetmeme_url = '<data:post.url/>';
</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://tweetmeme.com/i/scripts/button.js"> </script>
</div>
</p>

This adds a retweet button onto the right hand side of your blogger post, at the very beginning.

If you do not find the code inside a </p> then add the codes above in after the bit that says  <data:post.body/> Doing this will then add the retweet button at the very end of you blog post.

To use the smaller compact version of the button use the code below:

<script type="text/javascript">
tweetmeme_style = "compact";
</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://tweetmeme.com/i/scripts/button.js"></script>

To place your twitter share or retweet button on the left then use the code below:

<div style="float:left;padding:4px;">

<script type="text/javascript">

tweetmeme_url = '<data:post.url/>';

tweetmeme_source = 'your_twitter_user_name';

</script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://tweetmeme.com/i/scripts/button.js"></script>

</div>

To place your twitter share or retweet button on the right then use the code below:

<div style="float:right;padding:4px;">

<script type="text/javascript">

tweetmeme_url = '<data:post.url/>';

tweetmeme_source = 'your_twitter_user_name';

</script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://tweetmeme.com/i/scripts/button.js"></script>

</div>

This is the code for compact left:

<div style="float:left;padding:4px;">

<script type="text/javascript">

tweetmeme_style = 'compact';

tweetmeme_url = '<data:post.url/>';

tweetmeme_source = 'your_twitter_user_name';

</script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://tweetmeme.com/i/scripts/button.js"></script>

</div>

This is the code for compact right:

<div style="float:right;padding:4px;">

<script type="text/javascript">

tweetmeme_style = 'compact';

tweetmeme_url = '<data:post.url/>';

tweetmeme_source = 'your_twitter_user_name';

</script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://tweetmeme.com/i/scripts/button.js"></script>

</div>

Using this code you will be able to place retweets and tweet shares onto your web page or blog.  If you have a smattering of web design language, you can also use this code to put other symbols and pictures in as links.

The positioning of the buttons should always reflect the mood of the tweet. If it is shocking news near the beginning then put the button near the beginning.  If the biggest punch comes near the end then put the button at the bottom.

Ideally you want people to re-tweet, so put the button where it will be visible on the page when the idea to re-tweet hits them.
