Since Twitter is getting huge popularity these days, adding a cool Retweet Button to your Blogger blog posts can easily get you some decent amount of traffic and promote your content/products to large people in quick time. If you have tons of followers, then you can easily milk it.. ;)

So, here is how to add a nice Retweet button to your blogspot blog posts:

There are two versions of retweet buttons.. one is the default one (looks like digg button) and the other one is Compact version which can fit in small space..

The Code for the Default version is :


<script type="text/javascript">

tweetmeme_url = '<data:post.url/>';

</script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://tweetmeme.com/i/scripts/button.js"> </script>


and for Compact version is :


<script type="text/javascript">

tweetmeme_style = "compact";

</script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://tweetmeme.com/i/scripts/button.js"></script>



Here is how to add them to your blogger post..

If you want it to the left side of blog post..

</script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://tweetmeme.com/i/scripts/button.js"> </script>

</div>


If you want it to the Right Side of post..
