Social Sharing Buttons And Leaking Pagerank
Posted 23 November 2012 - 11:12 AM
If you add say 6 Social Buttons (Facebook, Twitter, G+, etc) to a page, will you lose PageRank to those sites?

Interesting comment about not losing PageRank, but does that imply you have less "juice" to pass onto your own pages?
So would you recommend external links to relevant quality sites on many of your own pages? Even your Home Page?

I've been using addthis for quite awhile as a tool to enable people to share various pages on my website, but recently was reading some comments online about how addthis can possibly hurt your rankings in some ways that I don't really understand (by leeching pr….or because it has links back to the addthis website and also possibly connects to other unknown sites). Is this a bunch of nonsense….or is there possibly some detrimental effects? Are there any suggestions for a different social sharing type tool? (I was looking into shareaholic.....or maybe all of these types of tools have the same downsides...).
I was also thinking about making a bunch of separate buttons for all the different sites (twitter, linkedin, pinterest, etc. etc. etc.), and although it sounds like this would not have many negative effects according to the above discussion, using something like addthis seems more simple, and you don't get a huge amount of validation errors like you do when adding a Facebook like button. So, I'm leaning towards just keeping addthis, but want to make sure I'm doing the right thing.
