Increase blog traffic: integrate a “LIKE” button

There is no denying that Facebook is one of the hugest things to happen in this century for the online world. Knowing that, it is crucial we harness this knowledge for ourselves to increase traffic to the sites we own. Riding on the “Like” functionality that is spreading like wildfire all over the Internet, here’s an instruction guide on how to get it onto your WordPress blog (if you’re not using WordPress, I’m sorry… but there’s definitely similar guides to help you out).

Here’s an example of what it looks like after the functionality is enabled.

It’s a pretty straightforward process, really.

Step one: Click on “Add New” under the Plugins section, then type in “facebook social plugins”.

Step two: Locate the plugin that is by Olivier Lussier and click Install.

Step three: You may be prompted for your FTP details. Key them in and proceed.

Step four: Click Activate. Now, click on FB Social Settings in the left bar, under Settings.

Step five: The rest should be fairly self-explanatory. Select where you would prefer the “Like” buttons to appear, and you’re done!
