In a recent report released by BrightEdge, an enterprise SEO company, stats were released showing correlation between social buttons and social shares. Data showed that pages that displayed the Tweet button saw 7 times more social media mentions than pages that didn’t feature the button. This data was pulled from the “top 10,000 sites on the web.” The report also showed that in August 53.6% of the largest 10,000 sites have social widgets or buttons on the front page, up from 52.8% in July. The Facebook buttons and widgets led the way in popularity with 50% usage, while Twitter buttons were featured on 42.5% of these sites and Google +1 on just 8.5%.
