Dreamweaver extension to add social bookmarks to your websites.


SociaLink... Take advantage of Web 2.0 Social Bookmarking on your webpages from right inside Dreamweaver MX, MX2004, Studio 8, or Creative Suite 3 with SociaLink.

Got Content? Want to get as wide an audience as you can to read it? Then you need to help your readers get you more readers.

Social Bookmarking websites like Digg or allow readers to tag, store and share content that they find interesting - and if that is your content it can lead to a lot more traffic. And not just lots of clicks, but quality readers who are likely to get more from your site and give more in return.

All you need to do is give those readers a little button on your page for them to click on. You can make a link, right? Well actually its a little piece of javascript. A different javascript for each social bookmarking site. With different parameters for each one. Not to mention opening in a new window or not. And they take up a lot of room in your layout, too.

But it doesn't have to be that hard. SociaLink can add all that functionality to your Web pages from the convenience of Dreamweaver without code or complications. Simply insert the SociaLink into your Web page, select which of the social bookmarking sites you want to include, and how you want to present the buttons (lots of site buttons or behind a single icon).

SociaLink was designed with Web designers and developers in mind. You can control the number of rows or columns of icons, the CSS styles formatting those icons, you can even control the HTML between each icon. Not to mention activation with clicks or rollovers, opening in new windows, and a slew of other settings that will let you fit SociaLink right into your website in every possible way. It even integrates with Dreamweaver's Templates!

And once your audience starts to use these social bookmarking tools you'll see you traffic go up. Readers from the social bookmarking sites will discover your content. Social bookmarks are also stored as public Web pages which are searchable. That means more pages with links to your content, so you'll also see your rankings in the search engines improve (and that's good for SEO!).

What's new in SociaLink

Version 1.0.1: I just updated SociaLink to v 1.0.1. If you have a copy you should download this update. When I was demoing it as Spring Break I ran into a small bug with the link manager. I also got feed back from Adobe's exchange techs with another bug -- this time a javascript bug with IE 6 on Win XP (doesn't happen on other versions of Win). Plus I added a feature where it remembers where the support files are in your website so you don't have to be prompted every time you place a SociaLink on a page. Anyhow, all of those things were fixed. Hope you enjoy the software.
