There are some major pitfalls when it comes to social bookmarking that can seriously hurt your Seo ranking and even get you banned from the social bookmarking community.It is important to remember that social bookmarking is a social community hence the word social in social bookmarking.
1. Never bookmark only your own sites as you will be seen as a selfish spammer and you will get penalized.You want to act like you are a normal person surfing the web bookmarking all kinds of different sites.Don't just bookmark business related sites.Bookmark any site that you find interesting.Then systematically bookmark your own sites and you will start to see some serious traffic coming in.
2.Never bookmark the same site with the same headline and tags in more than one social bookmarking site.This is a very poor social bookmarking strategy.Remember, again you want to come across as just a normal person who bookmarks all of their favorite sites.Why would a normal person bookmark the same site on 20 different social bookmarking sites? This is a dead giveaway and you will get penalized.
So in a nutshell your social bookmarking strategy should be to act as a normal person and bookmark all of your favorite sites you find and then systematically also bookmark your own sites.
Never bookmark the same site in two different bookmarking sites with the same title, you can bookmark the same site in different bookmarking site but don't do it all at once you will leave tracks and you wiull probably get punished by google and the bookmarking sites and always make sure you enter your tags and your title correctly when you bookmark your sites.The search engines are looking for the tags you have on your bookmarks and this strategy can bring you tons of traffic if you are patient and do things right.
