How to add social share buttons to the website
Why are likes and share on the website
Thanks to the counters, visitors can see that your audience is loyal and the platform is popular. This will affect on behavioral factors. And the behavioral factors will improve the positions in the SERP. Technically, when you click "Share", the title, picture, part of the content and the link to the article are copied. A publishing is automatically created in the visitor's personal account, and all subscribers will see it.
Imagine the situation that the visitor was interested in the event, which is described on your poster-website. And if you do not set the button to share the event, the user has to save the link to the page, go to the social network or messenger, insert the link and send it. As a rule, he will not want to spend time on it and leaves the page.
