Technorati Link Count Widget display’s the number of links to each of your posts in real-time — updated live for all your visitors. It's a simple piece of code that lets you make your site or blog more dynamic.

Technorati tracks when other bloggers link to your blog and this widget makes it possible for you to display the number of links on every blog post. We call them "reactions" to encourage readers to follow the conversation.

Installation: To add the widget, copy and paste the code given below that relates to your blogging system,  into your blog's template. You'll be inserting this into your blog's HTML that contains post-footer (look for <p class=“post-footer”> in the code), not a post.

Note: WordPress users will find this code in post.php
