    I'm looking for a plugin that offers the social bookmarking features your plugin has while not wasting link benefit (nofollow not an option, it deletes link benefit).

    This would normally mean using javascript and/or iFrames which is available for some social networking buttons etc..., so far not found a plugin that only uses javascript and/or iFrames (hence still looking).

    Anyway, noticed you use links but not with href, instead shr_href which is custom code and I'm hoping is not recognised by the likes of Google as a link. Until seeing the shr_href was just about to delete the plugin as a standard text/image link (even with nofollow) wastes link benefit.

    Was there some SEO logic behind using shr_href instead of href? Any SEO testing?

    Have you considered using something other than a link for the code? Concerned even a malformed A link code will waste link benefit.

    I use a combination of javascript and css to completely cloak affiliate links explained at http://www.stallion-theme.com/stallion-theme-cloak-affiliate-links-tutorial basically a span tag is converted into a text link using javascript and css, since span tags have no SEO value either way (just text to a search engine) the link is invisible to search engines. I assume you are doing something similar with the shr_href.

    If I ever find a plugin that's SEO friendly will recommend to my WordPress SEO theme users and at http://www.google-adsense-templates.co.uk/wordpress-seo-plugins
