    How do I add the Facebook Like button to each post? I already have a Facebook fan page.

    1) facebook, twit, and everything else submits via a url string.

    If the string is pre formatted on your post (laggy):

    example: facebook.com&title=blah blah&url=mysite.com/blah-blah

    This is sending page rank to facebook.

    2) If they have an external script with a php redirect (faster), it redirects to the plugin authors site, where the script then redirects the commenter to facebook.

    This is sending page rank the plugin author's site.

    -

    3) Now, you could nofollow those links, however it will still reduce the active pagerank:

    5 links on page, one is that facebook post link, 4 are internal links.

    pagerank for that page = totalpagerank minus 1/5 of total to your 4 internal links.

    -

    4) When you make your own using php redirect, it is hosted on your site, which mean pagerank goes to you

    example:

    it killed off my code here, imagine a php file on your site

    This is sending page rank to your site

    LOL you could be the plugin author,

    Sorry, but this is all very confusing to me. I'm looking for the simplest instructions possible.

    Try the plugin that Rev. Voodoo linked to in the first reply.
