    Recently i read that one need to use 'click to tweet' links within the posts as well in order to increase the social shares. So, can you please tell is it okay to place 'click to tweet this' in my hubs using a service like clicktotweet.com

    I hope it wont be spammy or against hubpages policies.

      Some people have been doing it because the sharing buttons are not on mobile display.  Here's an example of how somebody does it.

      You can right click on the link to see the url the sharing link points to, and structure your links similarly. For example, a tweet link looks like

      https : / / twitter.com/home?status=http://username.hubpages.com/hub/title-of-hub

      Using a third-party service like clicktotweet is totally unnecessary.  I don't personally insert sharing links manually, but I notice that a lot of other people are doing it discreetly at the end of their hubs. Proceed at your own risk as HP may later decide to unfeature hubs with links like this.

        Thanks Calculus, i think you are talking about the links he had added below 'share with friends'. Yes, that's too a way we can have it.  Actually click to tweet link is just for a small part of the hub which you liked and not for the entire hub, in a way it can be like something may be a quote which you liked and you want to tweet.

    You can't add coding like that to your Hubs.  If it's a button, it won't let you add it, and such links would be viewed as spammy.

    I suggest you actually read the HubPages policies rather than just guessing.

      @Relache- oh i am sorry i used the word button in my title, actually its just a link 'click to tweet' hyperlinked which if you click will take you to twitter. But i think HP will not allow this
