AddThis Social Bookmarking

On March 11th, I signed up for and added AddThis to the Fake Name Generator. I later added it to ABA Number Lookup and iPhone Mob Codes.

So far, I’m pretty happy with it. I haven’t seen any ads (although I do have AdBlock), and they include an analytics package that includes just enough info to be useful.

So how well has it worked? Well, people have shared my content over 420 times on Facebook, Digg, MySpace, Twitter, Delicious, StumbleUpon, and more. These may not drive a pile of traffic, but they do create a lot of good backlinks that increase my rankings in the search engines.

Anyways, I’d really prefer to roll my own solution, as the JavaScript that generates the AddThis button is a bit heavier than I’d like. Or if anyone has found a free open source solution, please let me know!
