I see you won that argument, Jahnelle. lol

I’ve been thinking of switching to Topsy button myself. One of the major reasons is the fact that Google indexes their links much better than Twitter.

lol I did , I did… persuasion is the key :D

Topsy has a lot going for it that the Twitter button doesn’t – I thought that from the first, and it’s proven itself out time and again since we got rid of the Tweet version.

Thanks for taking the time to comment, Ana – if you decide to go ahead and take the leap, let me know what you think!

Well – haven’t seen the appearance but, function-wise, you sold me.

The button is right above the comments, on the right, by the way. lol – we didn’t want people to think we were going overboard with social and all that stuff – If you click the retweet on the topsy, and click the tweet on the OTB (left side scroll bar), you can see the differences in output, as well.

Duh … little early to open my eyes :) Yeah I see it and the you’re right – the numbers are clearly higher than the OTB’s.

Hi Jahnelle,

I am looking forward to your mad scientist giggles and testing over the next 3 weeks. I will vote with you and the cooler button. :)
