      Hi Divine,
      I’m so happy our article could inspire you. However, I don’t know if adding a “popular post” link would add to traffic.
      I have “Top Posts of 2016” in my right sidebar. Also, WordPress lists “Top Posts and Pages” in my right sidebar. I’ve never tried in my email and I don’t know of any analytics that would tell you the effectiveness. I’m sorry if I couldn’t be of more help.

    Hi Janice and Mike,
    I think the best tip is to interlink your accounts, your email, your blog, etc with your social accounts. No matter where people find you they should be able to find you where they go the most.
    I think too that sharing great content is another way to increase your social media influence on your social accounts.
    Also I see many bloggers that when I go to tweet their post after commenting, the user name of their Twitter handle is not there. That’s a BIGGIE!

      Hi Lisa,
      Thanks for dropping by today. I agree with what you wrote about the importance of linking accounts. I felt this was a novel tip by my guest author. Of course, strong content is important. Speaking of which I’m still debating on a Listly post, LOL. I received notification that someone (you?) added to the list I contribute to.
      As far as Twitter, I agree with you. Sometimes I go to notify someone I linked to them so they share on Twitter, but their Twitter handle isn’t there. Now you have me concerned. I want to make sure my Twitter handle is there, but I’m at school where Twitter is blocked, LOL. I’ve received notification you’ve retweeted me, so I guess my Twitter handle is there. Relief since I agree that’s huge.

    I can’t tell you the number of bloggers I see who don’t/haven’t linked their page to social media. I can’t figure out why someone would cut their page off from these outlets. Social media brings in about 25% of my total visits every day. Couldn’t imagine not wanting that.

    • Janice Wald | at 5:06 am

      Hi Danny,
      Great to hear from you. Thanks for your comments. I agree. Even when they do have social share buttons, they are few. For example, I like to stumble people’s links at StumbleUpon. Even if you’re at WordPress.com, this button can be installed manually.
      Do you know Smorgasbord Sally? I guest posted about the need for social share buttons for her.
      Janice
