AddThis Slowing Down Your Website?

On one of my blogs, I decided to include the AddThis button that allows content sharing across multiple social networking platforms. The problem was that the AddThis button’s javascript base was significantly impacting my website’s performance. After some careful tinkering, I finally discovered that the default bubble counter was the cause of the problem. Simply removing the counter portion of the HTML code solved my problem.

Find and remove this line from your AddThis code:

<a class="addthis_counter addthis_bubble_style"></a>
