Social Bookmarking sites have proliferated and if all are added at the bottom of a post they tend to distract attention from the contents of the post and take up space and increase page loading time. Here is one social bookmark which will replace all those you have at the end of your post......

Social Bookmarking sites are important for several reasons. They serve to store your Browser bookmarks so that you can access them from different PCs and also to share them with like interest people. These sites are frequently crawled by search engine bots and have a higher Page Rank. Hence if your blog has a link on one of theses sites it will get indexed by search engines faster.


ADDTHIS.COM

<div class='post-footer'>

Paste the code from addme below this line and save template. If you are inserting the feed button code there are two "&" characters in the code. Replace both these "&" characters with "& a m p ;" without the spaces and save template. Otherwise you will get errors.
