I was pointed here from the 30 Day Challenge boards, where I was taken on a crash course in IM in order to pay for my days-from-being-born first baby. I've been learning a lot; I've got an Ebook and a growing collection of articles as well as a few blogs and some Ezine Articles.
I've kind of reached a hovering point (at zero traffic), however, because I've been told to socially bookmark all of my articles/blogs/pages, etc -- but I've also been told that I have to do it RIGHT. In other words, generic blurbs on Digg or Delicious get ignored, and are a waste of time.
The question I'd like to put to the forum is simple: when you're social-bookmarking, what is your general strategy for writing eye-catching, traffic-inducing blurbs? Are there tricks for optimizing blurbs for search engines, or is that important? How do you make sure people actually SEE your social-bookmark entries?
Also, while I'm at it, if any of you take a glance at my pages (linked above) and have some advice for me, please PM me. I'd really appreciate it.
