Trackable Social Share Icons

The Trackable Social Share Icons plugin enables blog readers to easily share posts via social media networks, including Facebook and Twitter. All shar

Customization Options

Trackable Social Share Icons lets you select which social media icons appear (including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Digg, Reddit, StumbleUpon, Tumblr, Posterous, and Email), choose from a dozen different icon appearances - or upload your own, customize the size of the icons, whether or not to use text along side the icons, and lets you turn the Google Analytics tracking on and off.

Tracking

If you have tracking turned on in the admin, all clicks on your social icons will automatically be tracked in Google Analytics – there is nothing to set up. Social icon clicks will appear in Google Analytics under Content > Event Tracking in a category called SocialSharing. It will break out which buttons were clicked, and let you drill down to see which pages the clicks came from. Note that tracking only works with the new asynchronous analytics code (not the old urchin code).

Trackable Social Share Icons will work even without Google Analytics on your site – though obviously you won’t be able to track the clicks without analytics.

Privacy Information

Ecreative IM does not gather any information about user shares, nor is any information shared with any third party. All click data is accessible only by someone with access to your Google Analytics.

Stats and Analytics

Tracking only works with the newer, asynchronous analytics code (though the rest of the plugin will work fine even without it). The asynchronous analytics code appears in the header of your site code, whereas the old urchin analytics appears in the footer. You can get Google Analytics or upgrade to the new version at any time for free.

See our FAQ for more info.

Trackable Social Share Icons data appears in Google Analytics under the Content > Event Tracking section. See Screenshots for more.

Known Issues

There is an issue where images images do not display properly in IIS while using HTTPS.

Currently Google does not offer a manner in which to share URIs with custom buttons or links. As of 9-6-11 they only offer their Javascript +1 button solution. When they update this with the ability to share websites through custom links we will update the plugin with buttons that match the sets of other buttons.
