Social bookmarking and link sharing is probably the largest source of traffic for most of us. Sites like Stumbleupon and Delicious send hundreds of thousands of visitors across the blogosphere.

So how can we encourage more people to share our links? One of the easiest options is to include a set of links at the bottom of your posts which readers can click to automatically vote for your article.

There are plugins which can do this of course, but that requires you to work with their settings, names icons in their banner and it means having yet another plugin installed on your site.

If you would rather avoid that and have complete control for yourself, then you might prefer to code the links into your theme yourself.

In this post, I’ve written the WordPress codes for 33 of the largest social bookmarking and networking sites out there.

Update (9/11/09): Added in 2 new sites, Design Bump and Design Moo! Up to 35 sites now.

One thing that you should note though is that if you put images into your excerpts, then you should remove the section from any of the links that have it. For example:

1
http://delicious.com/post?url=<?php the_permalink(); ?>&title=<?php the_title(); ?>&notes=<?php the_excerpt(); ?>

Would become:

1
http://delicious.com/post?url=<?php the_permalink(); ?>&title=<?php the_title(); ?>

And that’s all 33. Hopefully it should cover just about any site you need, but if there any others, just let me know and I’ll add to it!

Or would you rather just use a plugin? Do you hard code your links or not?
