Link Count Widget for Blogger

Hey Folks!

Some of you may have heard about the Link Count Widget that allows you to see how many links there are to a specific post right next to the post. I've installed it in this blog as well for folks to see. It is indicated by the "View blog reactions" link or the "# blog comments" with the Technorati talk bubble icon.

Some may be a little confused as to where to find this code to install the widget. Well, you can find it right here:

http://technorati.com/tools/linkcount/

Also, some may wonder where this code should be placed. This code needs to placed in the blog HTML or blog template. Thus you will need to be able to edit your blog HTML to use this feature. It is recommended to place the code in the footer section of the template. Where is that you say? That would be where you see this code in your template:

<p class="post-footer">

Please note, you should not place the code in a post. The widget will not be able to work here. It'll look like:
View blog comments

but go nowhere.

Hope this helps!! Enjoy the Widget!

P.S. For those on Blogger Beta, here's a great post to add the Linkcount widget to Blogger Beta blogs' item pages with just a couple of clicks at Consuming Experience
