  • Adding the xmlns attribute :
please go to your blogger account again, and navigate to, layout >> edit html >> and check Expand Widget Templates
then find the following code,
<html
you’ll find it on the top of your code. second or third line, and after it add the following code,
xmlns:fb='http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml'
you must type a space before it and after it,
here is an example.
<html  xmlns:fb='http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml'  expr:dir='data:blog..............2005/gml/expr'  >
  • Adding the SDK script Code :
search for
<body>
and after it add the following code,
<div id="fb-root"></div>
<script>
    window.fbAsyncInit = function() {
    FB.init({
      appId  : 'YOUR   APP ID',
      status : true, // check login status
        cookie : true, // enable cookies to allow the server to access the   session
      xfbml  : true  // parse XFBML
    });
  };

    (function() {
    var e = document.createElement('script');
      e.src = document.location.protocol +   '//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js';
    e.async = true;
      document.getElementById('fb-root').appendChild(e);
    }());
</script>
but please don’t forget to change YOUR APP ID to your app id ( you got it in the previous step ).
  • Adding the Open Graph protocol tags:
copy the following code.

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<meta   expr:content='data:blog.pageTitle' property='og:title'/>
<meta   expr:content='data:blog.url' property='og:url'/>
<b:else/>
<meta   expr:content='data:blog.title' property='og:title'/>
<meta   expr:content='data:blog.homepageUrl' property='og:url'/>
</b:if>
<meta   content='MY-SITE-NAME' property='og:site_name'/>
<meta   content='http://google.com/help/hc/images/logos/blogger_logo.gif'   property='og:image'/>
<meta content='YOUR-APP-ID'   property='fb:app_id'/>
<meta content='YOUR-FACEBOOK-PROFILE-ID'   property='fb:admins'/>
<meta content='article'   property='og:type'/>
and change the colored text to the following,
Change MY-SITE-NAME with the one you want to appear when a user likes a page. (Gil likes Helping on Facebook)
Changehttp://google.com/…/blogger_logo.gif with your blog logo, or remove the all tag if you don’t want it.

  4. Great post full of useful tips! My site is fairly new and I am also having a hard time getting my readers to leave comments. Analytics shows they are coming to the site but I have a feeling “nobody wants to be first”.
