Hello folks,

Could you please give an advice about social buttons, should I use them on my site or not?

I've been using social like buttons on my websites, Facebook and Linkedin share buttons say that they are making my sites slow down when checking on tools

Should I get rid of social like buttons? thoughts?

And why not? :D It is always and ALWAYS recommended to use Social Buttons. Don't check your website with website checking tools, they are just building ad impressions for them! Just make your website more SEO friendly. There are SEO checkup tools that allows you to find out what you have improved and what others you might have fix or work on. This is one of them: seositecheckup.com
The answer is no, it won't affect your site's speed or ranking, it is used to get more leads for your social accounts.
These buttons that should go below are above all blog posts and around the pages will help you to get more facebook likes, twitter and G+ follows, the more of these you have, the more powerful your social account gives signal to it's links increasing their ranks.
Good luck buddy!

Hi, What is your site built with?

If it's something like WordPress and you are using a plugin for your social needs, try out others that have the features you want. I've used some that had a noticeable impact on speed and others that really made not much difference.

I would definitely recommend using some kind of social networking features for your site, sometimes they can make a nice difference in traffic so you don't want to miss out on that.

Also, are you sure they are the cause of the speed loss and not something else? Might just want to do some checking to make sure you have the right cause.

Good luck. :)

Hi bro!

Great question.

I would say absolutely not my friend.


Social activity plays a big role in your rank. It is a must.

Plus you will attract new viewers to your site and grow your brand.

I am not sure which buttons you are using but I would recommend addthis.com.

Really easy and effective and should not slow down your site.

All the best bro!

Social share buttons allow visitors to share your posts with others which will increase your blog visitor and also increase user engagement with your content. By the way there are plenty of social share plugins available for WordPress which are responsive and fast loading for example I am using "Juiz Social share" plugin for my blog and it works great for me. No impact on my blog loading speed.
