function ls_de_options($content) {
            return '<h3><a href="www.google.com">Hello World</a></h3>'.$content;

add_filter( 'the_content', 'ls_de_options' );

The link does not work. It is taking me to http://example.com/www.google.com

What I wanted to do was to put a share button link to every post in my blog Or is there a better way to add share button.

The reason the link isn't working is because you haven't formatted it correctly.


return '<h3><a href="www.google.com">Hello World</a></h3>'.$content;

Should be this:

return '<h3><a href="https://www.google.com/">Hello World</a></h3>'.$content;

To answer your other question: There are a lot of social sharing plugins that will add sharing links to your content.
