Social Media sharing is a great way to increase the traffic to your website especially if your site is new and doesn’t have much traction in the search engines yet.  One of the first things I tell my clients when they are first getting started with their website is to make sure they have the social media sharing options integrated into their website for easy sharing.  And that they also make it very easy for their visitors to connect with them on their social media pages for further relationship building.

Below is a quick list of 10 great plugins to check out for your blog … I highly recommend getting some of these set up so your social media interaction on your website is quick, easy, and effective!
