Twitter and StumbleUpon are one of my main Source of Traffic next to Google. You can Shorten your StumbleUpon Link with The more likes you get in stumble means high visibility in StumbleUpon, which will increase the traffic to your blog. You can now Simply use Short links in Tweetmeme by changing the URL shortener service in Tweetmeme. Here is the simple tutorial.

The Below trick applies to both WordPress and Blogger blogs if you have added tweetmeme buttons using codes.

1.To Get API Key

Login to and goto Settings and copy your API Key API KEY

2. To added API key in Tweetmeme

If u have already installed the Tweetmeme Button

then just add tweetmeme_service =’’; and service_api = ‘Paste your API here’; in tweetmeme script tags.

<script type=”text/javascript”>

tweetmeme_service = '';
service_api = 'YOUR_API_KEY';

For WordPress Users who uses Tweetmeme Plugin:

I have tested this with the following plugin:

Now goto Dashboard -> Tweetmeme

Goto Settings for Button Integration -> now in URL Shortner you wont find that drop down menu box(Screen Shot).

To add to the menu you have to add one piece of code in plugin’s PHP File. (Below Tutorial)

Goto your file manager using FileZilla goto the Directory where the plugin is installed

you can check /wp-content/plugins/tweetmeme

now in this Directory you will see 5 files.(twitter.php, tweetmeme.php and 3 others )

1.Download and backup “tweetmeme.php” open tweetmeme.php using notepad++

3.Search and Locate “<select name=”tm_url_shortner”>

4. add the below code just below <select name=”tm_url_shortner”>

<option <?php if (get_option('tm_url_shortner') == '') echo 'selected="selected"'; ?> value=""></option>

5.Save and upload to tweetmeme directory and replace it with tweetmeme.php

The Above mentioned Code will add to tweetmeme -> URL shorther  (You can See Clearly in Screen Shorts)

Now Goto Tweetmeme plugin -> Settings for Button -> URL Shortner Select and give your API key in URL Shortener API.

All Done! now if you are any of your readers Tweet using Tweetmeme Button the Stumble Upon Shortener is used this will drive more traffic to your blog from Twitter and Stumbleupon.
