Shareaholic – the web’s hottest secret and how it can help business bloggers

Shareaholic – the secret gem of the web’s entire goal is to make sharing content online even easier than it already is, especially for those who blog for a living and while the service is well established, we find many still aren’t familiar with Shareaholic. Because Shareaholic is being accessed by over 250 million web users every month, its database of social information and data will help bloggers garner quality traffic that is geared toward their target audiences, encourage leads to make contact in some way, and increase visibility for business bloggers. And that’s all from one simple site – Shareaholic.

With offices in Boston and New Delhi, India, Shareaholic has received a total of $2.26 million in funding and was founded in 2009. If you’re looking to add Shareaholic to your blog or website, Shareaholic supports Tumblr, WordPress, and other non-blog websites. All you have to do is add the simple JavaScript into the backend of your website or blog, and that’s it.

After that, you can easily access your analytics. These analytics will tell you the referral websites, your most popular pages, time of day you have the most visitors, and even information on which pages and links your visitors are spreading to others. With this information, you can pinpoint which topics or blogs are the most popular and you can continue to drive traffic there.

Option number two for Shareaholic:

If none of those fit your needs, you do have a second option; you can use Shareaholic as an extension to your preferred web browser, and of course, you always have the choice of using both options. If you decide to use Shareaholic as an internet extension, there are many features available to you – save your favorite links, blogs, or websites right onto your bookmarks toolbar for easy and convenient access and customize the extension without slowing your browser speed. Shareaholic says they make a big effort to block spam, adware, spyware, and malware.
