How to Add Linkwithin to your blog
Have you ever visited someone's blog and noticed they have these neat little boxes that show other posts listed at the bottom of their post using Linkwithin?  


I personally, love seeing Linkwithin boxes at the bottom of posts. Using Linkwithin, helps you get visitors to stay longer on your blog and that is good for both your rating. You ad sponsors have a better chance of being seen if you use Linkwithin, because people will have more chances to notice all the great blog buttons and ads on your site.

So if you are a PR friendly site, sell ad space, Linkwithin is a great tool you want to use.

So, how can you use Linkwithin on your blog?

It is so easy. Just visit their website at http://www.linkwithin.com.  It's Free, and easy. It is actually a widget, that you place just below your "main post area" for those using Blogger. 

Just put in your Email address, Blog URL, Blog type (blogger, wordpress, etc) and choose a width (how many links you want to show).  If you have a dark background instead of white, you want to make sure you click that special link "My blog has light text on a dark background" just above the GET WIDGET button. 

So now, you've clicked GET WIDGET.. what now? 
Linkwithin is so easy, they have a quick tutorial of exactly what to do. They show you, based on your blog type (blogger, wordpress), step-by-step how to install. It's almost as easy as boiling water.

Are you ready to Linkwithin? Just click here to get started.  If you have any problems or questions, they have a support box at the bottom of the page or you can email them directly at support@linkwithin.com

Happy Blogging!
