[Resolved] [Plugin: SexyBookmarks] Is it becoming NotsoSexy Spammarks

  • Depending on which plugin you use to show tweets on your WP you will now find your tweets ending with From Shareholic
    Looking into it a bit closer I see the plugin is now calling for js scripts from the shareholic web site
    http://www.shareaholic.com//media/js/jquery.shareaholic-publishers-api.min.js

    I always become concerned when this practice is adopted because we have no control over what these scripts will end up doing, or if there might be penalties from search engines.
    Am I over reacting, maybe so, but I see very little progress with this plugin for the user over the course of the recent upgrades, just this questionable coding sneaking in.

  • I noticed that too and deleted the plugin…

    @masherwp, you can format your Tweet any way you’d like. You can do this from the “Configure Tweet” section of the admin panel.

    The plugin does not call js scripts from the shareaholic web site. It only does this once, to copy the file to your own server when you configure the plugin. You can double check by viewing the source of your blog 🙂

    It should be copied over to the following folder:
    http://*/wp-content/plugins/sexybookmarks/js/*

    We also give you the option to no-follow all links to mitigate any possible risk of SEO penalization.

    We’ve made a lot of progress over the last few releases. The new Beta version is designed to be a lot faster, and leaner than the previous version.

    We really care about our users (you), and if there is any way we can improve, please just let us know!!
