Add Social Bookmarking Buttons near Adsense Ads

The main advantages of this widget is that you can increase your AdSense impressions along with CTR - and of course, fill up the empty space besides Adsense units, making your blog look more attractive.

Adding the social bookmarking buttons at the top of your blogger post, will make things easier when your readers will want to share your posts via the networking sites. The widget includes buttons for Del.icio.us, Twitter, Facebook, StumbleUpon, Technorati and Digg.
