More questions about Facebook Like icon

Msg#: 4230815 posted 1:53 am on Nov 16, 2010 (gmt 0)

I want to put a FB like icon on all pages of my site.

Question 1: Can I have <fb:like href="MY URL" layout="button_count" font="arial"></fb:like> the part where MY URL is be generated automatically. I have more than 1000+ pages and I want to insert the icon once in the template vs adding it on all pages manually.

Question 2: If I cant have a custom URL on each page generated automatically with the FB icon is it OK and user friendly if my like it link go to the homepage while being displayed on all site pages?

Question 3: Any SEO benefits / harms by introducing the FB script to my site?

Thank you in advance!

1)You need to add the encoded url to the like button and you should also make sure you add the correct Open Graph tags to the page. You can script something to do this for you if you have a template.




should point you in the right direction

2) You should be able to do 1)if I understand correctly.

3) I'm not too sure on the SEO benefits or otherwise, but you can implement this using an iframe and so won't need the script.
