This is something that would be useful for all of us marketing our posts here, and especially when we have relevant content that is being searched for online...

It could further spread the word about the advantages that WA brings to the affiliate marketing world...

Am I missing something? maybe I have just not heard about the reason, or maybe this is something that is being looked at for future enhancements?


Cheers!

Maybe it is because sharing direct affiiate links sometimes gets banned on social media?

Would a blog post fall into that category? I have posted on facebook a link manually and had no problem, I have not tried any Facebook paid ads however...

Well, the problem with having social share buttons on WA is that other members might click those button to share it, but won't be sharing it with their affiliate link. So it's better for a member to manually get the affiliate link and post that.

OK, that makes sense...

I was just wondering as I shared your post about patreon dot com. As I use an iPad most of the time I can share it super easy on Facebook but a button would make things much more easy.

Hope WA will consider these buttons

Happy long weekend Dave!

Hi Dave but you have website is for that and WA is for local interaction ???

Here is the thing Paul...you can use these post to rank in Google as has been pointed out numerous times over many posts and comments here...

This means that you can draw in traffic by sharing on the social media platforms and get the boost not only from the Google searches but also the added boost from the dissemination you have...

This is something I do manually now, and it does help, but wouldn;t it be more convenient to have the share buttons right on the page to do this with fewer steps?

Cheers!

Yes see where you are coming from - with me I just treat WA as a fun thing and never write a real post here but for others would be sorting to talk to Kyle about

Paul, it is very easy to rank here with posts that are easy yo compete against on the search engines...It is also fast - so why not leverage this and get more referrals while we are at it? This is a good thing, but there may be a reason this is not possible, as in slowing down the site, etc. I always ask for forgiveness versus permission hehe! Dave : )

I added the plugin for it to my site, so I have the major ones. The thing that concerns me is plugins can deteriorate your site health--so how do you get around that?

That is maybe the reason they have not added to the platform, but it sure would be a useful feature...

I share posts all the time from my websites and also from other websites...

Especially knowing that we can be ranked quickly for posts we publish here on Google, this would be advantageous...

Cheers!

I'm going to keep it as well as my print page because I agree with you, having social media icons is much more accessible for us and faster! Best wishes.

Thanks, Jovo...This is something that just hit me as i was thinking about the last blog post I did here...The QSR was something crazy low and I wanted to highlight the platform mentioned in the post anyway...Having the social share buttons would have enabled me to save time from copying and pasting links to the post...Cheers and good to see you are back safely from the mountains!
