How to Get Massive Traffic Using Social Bookmarking Sites

November 23rd, 2022

What is social bookmarking? According to Wikipedia, it “is a method for Internet users to organize, store, manage and search for bookmarks of resources online.” It is quite a fairly new term, coined by Delicious in 2003. But a lot of people already recognize it as a method to increase money making. How? Read on.

The term is somewhat difficult to define, but we’ll try to define it as simple as possible. You know when you visit your favorite website and you love that website so much because of the content and products they probably have for sale that you bookmark it. A bookmark is an internet browser tool to allow you to easily revisit a website without typing in their complete address. Because let’s face it, website addresses are something rarely remembered by people. So instead of you thinking, What was that website address again, all you have to do is click on the bookmark and they take you to that website or link.

Now, what is social bookmarking? It is a way for you to share your favorite bookmarks to people you know and they are able to visit the websites or links that you found interesting. It allows you to save it to the web instead of your web browser, thus making it easier to share with your friends.

Now it is important to differentiate it from social networking. Social bookmarking is not social networking. The latter term entails a person to be able to share the links they just visited into their social network profiles like Facebook or Twitter. Social networking does not necessarily mean that they will bookmark your link or website. Sometimes social bookmarking may be more effective than social networking because the social bookmarking sites put your website on a list depending on the number of visitors that found your website interesting and bookmarked it. That way visitors of social bookmarking sites are able to know which websites are relevant and interesting or worth the visit.

Which Social Bookmarking Tools Are Right For You?

SEO (search engine optimization) is the big talk of Internet marketers, the art of getting organic, free, traffic, which converts to sales and you have no marketing overhead costs. I was on an SEO webinar last week on which the presenter talked about social bookmarking tools as part of an SEO strategy. That it is important to not only bookmark your homepage, pages and posts but even article sites that have published your article or content sites that you have posted to.

When I do start to get the confirmation emails that my article has been accepted I should also bookmark all those article URLs. So you can literally get hundreds of article sites posting your content and the best practice is to bookmark every article URL. That is a lot of work if you have ever tried to do all the social bookmarking manually.

Of course there are some free social bookmarking services on the Internet that allow you to post your URL to social bookmark sites. The best service out there will post to about 79 sites for you, almost automatically and for FREE. Of course you do need to set up each individual account, which can take hours. If you want to create more than one account per website it will involve a large amount of time.

If you are good with your SEO then you are also creating pages on Wikis and other content sites. Those of course need to be bookmarked as well. Pretty soon it becomes quite evident that if you can automate any part of this process it will save you hours of time that you could be writing content or something you enjoy more than the repetitious work of account creation and URL submissions. To tell you the truth, this is not the most enjoyable part of SEO for me.

The good news is that there are programs that will automate your bookmarking for you. I have recently been looking for the right program to purchase. Currently I use the free online versions but with all of those links to bookmark I will install a program, set it up and let my PC sit and work while I create on the Mac.
