With the new algorithm changes in Google and the addition of the Plus + from Google I have been looking for a single plugin for social media sharing that includes the most important social networking sites and sharing.
With the ITP Share plugin and module for Joomla I have found a way to share articles across the most important social networking sites. The module allows you to place the buttons anywhere on your website while the plugin will place the sharing buttons before or after your articles. The buttons cover Facebook, Google Plus One, Twitter, Digg, LinkedIn, StumbleUpon Yahoo Buzz, Google Buzz and ReTweetMe.
It is very useful to have all the social networking sites in one plugin rather than having individual plugins. It also shortens the browser load time on your article pages.
Social media is a big ranking factor for Google. This is why I would recommend using a plugin like ITP Share. With the Plus 1 button from Google also affecting your ranking, this is a very useful plugin for SEO on your website. You can download the plugin ITP Share here.
