facebook comments counterThis is second part of our series on Facebook Comments plugin. Facebook comments are now optimized and easily indexed and crawled by search engines. Facebook comments appear in search results and can drive your traffic both from its 845 Million registered users and also from Mega Search engine Google. I have already shared a tutorial on how to count the number of Facebook comments and show it on your blog homepage and today we will use the same script but with a different design and feel.  Adding this comment counter is really easy. All you need to do is to track the steps properly. Please see a demo first,

Par3: Optimize Facebook Comments To Increase Blog Traffic

Count Facebook Comments in Blogger

  1. Go To Blogger > Design > Edit HTML
  2. Backup your template
  3. Click the "Expand Widgets Templates" box
  4. Search for this code,

<a class='comment-link' expr:href='data:post.addCommentUrl' expr:onclick='data:post.addCommentOnclick'><b:if cond='data:post.numComments == 1'>1 <data:top.commentLabel/><b:else/><data:post.numComments/> <data:top.commentLabelPlural/></b:if></a>

    5.   The above code can occur thrice. Just replace the first occurrence of the code above with the following code:

<div style='border-top:1px solid #ddd; border-bottom:1px solid #ddd; padding:3px 0px; text-align:right;'>
<img class='comments-tab-icon' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/img/b/R29vZ2xl/AVvXsEhE5w7af2lhFCUUzUFEkzRLhXVQsLTDUobRpUDr5jSHP4-CBeY5ob0q9ArwE2mGsBAB3_N_Uxef8P3Bpr6K1VwwXPL710tJG7zjqsqhfbiGJzkD9yPFz9-zyN9ahONrw1nlymYiUXCV1wM/s400/fb.png'/>

  28. Thanks for this, Mohammad! Need little more help from you. The fb comment section is displaying but the comment count is always zero '0' irrespective of how many fb comments are there.
    An example on the blog-
    Homepage http://worldcinema-yashesh.blogspot.in/ for this post http://worldcinema-yashesh.blogspot.in/2014/06/edge-of-tomorrow-2014.html is displaying '0' comments, when in fact there are a couple of comments.

    Looking forward to you on this. Thanks in advance!

  29. It's working but the facebook comment is on 0 while there are 4 comments in it.
