Are you following the WordPress Recipes blog? If not, you really should be! My fellow blogger and friend Jean-Baptiste Jung has created this blog to feature a number of “recipes” or code snippets. In addition to the content, he’s also got a great design that has been getting attention all throughout the blogosphere.
In his latest recipe, Jean explains how to add a “Send to Twitter” link to your blog, or what I prefer to call it, a “Tweet This!” link. The idea is to add a link on your blog (usually below the content) that people can simply click to discuss the post on Twitter.
If you’d like to add a “Tweet This!” link to your blog, here is the code you’ll need:
<a href="http://twitter.com/home?status=Currently reading <?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="Click to send this page to Twitter!" target="_blank">Tweet This!</a>
I would think that this could potentially be another great way to fetch traffic, possibly even better than a “Digg This!” link or something else along those lines.
