I use Yoast SEO and love it. Also Add this sharing buttons. But im planning to make my own plugin without js.
I agree, Bican. Yoast is a fantastic plugin. It really makes it easy to create your own preferred snippets for the Google search results and social media sites.
I also agree about the need to use social sharing buttons because they’re really critical for the success of a blog in today’s world.
I used the Sumo sharing plugin for several years, but after I enabled SSL (https) encryption on my blogs I “lost” all my social shares because all the existing were “tied” to the http versions of my pages.
I looked for a solution for a week or so and eventually found an awesome social sharing plugin called “Social Warfare”. I installed it and wallah! My https pages suddenly had their “social proof” back!
What makes Social Warfare so amazing is it actually adds the share totals of your http pages to the total for the https pages and displays the total number of shares. This is an awesome plugin and I strongly recommend it. It has a premium version but the free version works perfectly for me.
By the way, I’m not affiliated with the company behind the plugin in any way except for being a very satisfied user.
Thanks for a fantastic post, Meagan!
