How to add Social Bookmarks in Blogger Posts?

The best way to improve your reader's count is to add a social bookmark at the end of every post. This makes it easy for the readers to bookmark the post page using their favorite social bookmarking service (eg: Del.icio.us, Technorati, etc..) My post features to add some of the best social bookmarks at the end of every post.

Here's how to add social bookmark buttons at the end of each post:
1. Go to "Layout->Edit HTML (check the "expand widget templates" option is ticked). You should make a backup of your template before modifying the HTML by clicking on the "Download full template" link at the top of the page first.
2. You need to search for the following line in your expanded template.

<em><div class="post-footer-line post-footer-line-1"></em>
.
3. Paste the following code just after the above line.

<!-- Start of social bookmarks -->

<b><i>Share this:</i>

|<a expr:href='"http://digg.com/submit?phase=2&url=" + data:post.url + "&title=" + data:post.title'

target='_blank'>Digg It</a> |

<a expr:href='"http://technorati.com/faves?add=" + data:post.url' target='_blank'>Add to Technorati</a> |

<a expr:href='"http://del.icio.us/post?url=" + data:post.url + "&title=" + data:post.title'

target='_blank'>Save on Del.icio.us</a> |

<a expr:href='"http://www.stumbleupon.com/submit?url=" + data:post.url + "&title=" + data:post.title'

target='_blank'>Stumble It</a> |

<a expr:href='"http://www.facebook.com/share.php?u=" + data:post.url + "&title=" + data:post.title'

target='_blank'>Share on Facebook</a> |

</b>

<!-- End of social bookmarks -->


.
4. Preview your blog to make sure the bookmark button appears as you want at the end of the posts. Your final output should be like the one at the end of my post.
