  • Importing Facebook Likes and Twitter Followers

    Does anybody know how to do that?

    I have some icons in the footer of my homepage and really would like to display the number of people have liked my Facebook page and the number of followers I have on Twitter.

    Is there a way to do that?

    Thanks,
    Uta

    Integrating FB Likes and Twitter Follower Numbers

    Hello:

    I figured it out. Here is the code for Twitter, if anybody else wants to do that. Just delete Littledogfashion and put in the name of your site:


    script type="text/javascript" src="http://twittercounter.com/embed/?username=Littledogfashio&style=bird"></script><noscript><a href="http://twittercounter.com/Littledogfashio">Littledogfashio on Twitter Counter</a></noscript>


    The second one is Facebook. Again, just put in your site's name and delete mine:

    <div class="fb-like" data-href="http://www.facebook.com/Littledogfashion" data-send="true" data-width="450" data-show-faces="true" data-font="arial"></div>

    Why was I asking about that? It is supposed to help with SEO. I did 3 different SEO evaluations yesterday with 3 different companies and all 3 dinged me on not having my social media buttons on my home page. Plus, Etsy did this automatically for me on my homepage there.

    Hope this works for everybody else too.

        Facebook Code

        Hello:

        When you into the page where you set up the code, make sure you use your facebook url, i.e. http://www.facebook.com/yourfacebookbusinesspage

        And yes, if you don't do that you get goofy numbers...

        Hope this helps.

        Uta =)

            Facebook and Twitter Followers

            hello again:

            You used the html code, right? If you did, you should have 2 code sections. I put the top one in:

            Settings>Themes and Designs>Home> put the code in the bottom part, right after the last closing tag

            Then I used the bottom part of the code and put that in:

            Settings>Titles and Content>Homepage> and pasted it in the footer

            Did you get the Twitter one to work?

              I finally got it to work but it's giving insecure warnings so I removed both. That tends to cause my traffic and orders to drop. I get one on your page for the twitter bird

                Warnings?

                hello again:

                What kind of warnings are you getting? I have not noticed that. Would you mind sharing?

                Thanks,

                  How to make the Facebook and Twitter buttons secure

                  Good morning:

                  I talked to support this morning regarding making the Facebook and Twitter buttons secure and was told that all you have to do is delete the "http:" and just display "//www.yoursite..."

                  Here is what that looks like for my store for both buttons:

                  <script type="text/javascript" src="//twittercounter.com/embed/?username=Littledogfashio&style=bird"></script><noscript><a href="//twittercounter.com/Littledogfashio">Littledogfashio on Twitter Counter</a></noscript>
                  <br><br><div class="fb-like" data-href="//www.facebook.com/Littledogfashion" data-send="true" data-width="450" data-show-faces="true" data-font="arial"></div>

                  When I checked on whynopadlocks.com, I received the messages that the buttons are secure.

                  Hope this helps everybody/anybody who would like to add this to the homepage.

                  Uta =)

                    I pasted the code above into my footer, changed to point to my twitter and facebook accounts and the twitter display works great but I don't see a thing for Facebook. I'm an HTML noob so I know I am doing something stupid. This is the code I am using. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
