5 Weeks – Adding Social Media

Social Media is an important aspect of your online presence as it allows your business to transcend multiple platforms and therefore will provide you with a greater audience and global influence. Having multiple outbound links to reputable places also helps your SEO as search engines recognize them and will place you higher on their search engines rankings.

To add social media icons I installed and activated the “Social Icons Widget by WPZOOM”. This enabled me to put social media links into available widget areas within my theme.

After activating the plugin I added the widget to my footer area. The links currently take you to WPZOOM social platforms. If I had a client who was active on these platforms I would change the link address to reflect that.

Now my footer looks like this.

I also have share icons within each of my blog posts. This gives users the ability to share the posts on either Facebook or Google. This was a default feature provided by Altervista.
