No Share Buttons on Mobile Sites (Except This One Weird Case) [↗]

Only 2 out of every 1000 mobile web users ever tap a custom share button. Don’t even bother including them in mobile sites except when users are coming from a social network.

I can’t think that I’ve ever clicked on a website’s social media share button, mobile or not, but I normally include them for my client’s sites as standard. To be honest, I’ll probably continue to do so as it’s something that client’s expect and I’ve got better things to do than debate their effectiveness. That said, it’s always good to have some statistics to refer back to.

Test landing post

I’m testing a silly little WordPress plugin that I’ve been developing. As part of the test, I’ve posted some campaign links to Twitter, Facebook and Google+. If you followed one of those links to this post, thank you, your help is really appreciated.

Erm, there is nothing more to see here, please move along and enjoy the rest of your day.

UTM Builder [↗]

UTM Builder is a free online tool that makes it simple to tag URLs with only a few questions about its placement.

A handy tool for creating campaign links. That said, I’m not sure it offers anything over Google’s own URL Builder, apart from a nicer (subjective) user interface.
