    Hi,

    I've been using it on a few pages and without having done any thorough investigation I believe it's responsible for 2 first page rankings concluded from the time in which they climbed the SERP's.

    I really like it and it's super easy to use.

      I very recently signed up to SocialAdr and I have shared other peoples bookmarks and gotten credits, but as yet, none of my bookmarks have been shared.

      Does anyone have any tips for getting your bookmarks shared by people using SocialAdr?

      I've made 5 already. Should I keep making more?

        It takes a little time for your bookmarks to make it into the queue, so be patient.

        In my opinion, you can make your bookmarks more attractive and more likely to be shared by doing these things: Keep the description short and meaningful (one or two sentences, at most). Don't use a long paragraph from some article as the description. Use correct spelling and decent grammar in the title and description. Use only a few tags, not a long list. And if your topic is embarrassing or controversial, you can expect fewer shares.

        .

        Yes, use the paid version. You can either pay monthly ($17/mo is the lowest) or buy credits on a pay-per-play basis. If you can afford the $17/month it's worth it, you just submit your url's, submit your spun bookmark texts, and they do the rest! Well worth it in my opinion and the reason I got involved is that a fellow warrior told me she was getting good results with it!

    I use the lazy free plan...which is actually neither. I get can 100's of bookmarks to a page for a page for $15 a month at socialadr. I have ranked well using it. If you want to generate alot of bookmarks though I would suggest bookmarking demon. I get 1,000's of bookmarks easily. But it costs a chunk of money to buy but its well worth it. I will post a link to it if youi like

      Can you tell me how Bookmarking Demon differs from something like Social Monkee? That is, aren't you bookmarking at a lot of the less valuable (in terms of google juice) bookmarking sites with this, and aren't all the bookmarks coming from you, not from other users?

      To me, the advantage of socialadr is that the bookmarks are from real people, all with unique ip's and so cannot be seen (as far as I know) by google as "phony" or black hat.

    I use it and find it very easy to use. Other bookmark your site and I know they have because it shows up when I check my social stats.

    I haven't done any testing with it but I'm sure it must help just by making posts look popular.

    Ping.fm is being shut down and changed to seeismic instead. It will become a paid service unless you are happy with only being able to bookmark to a couple of site.

    As a previous user of SocialAdr (I might add I was on a special account which is above the highest possible paid account) I don't actually think its works for a number of reasons ....

    1. Almost all links are no follow so its no long term "vote of confidence" in Google eyes

    2. Your social signals are not geographically based so if your running geographic located sites e.g. .co.uk you'll be getting "social mentions" from a bunch of random users all across the globe

    3. With Google Penguin punishing anchor text paid links spammers I wouldn't be surprised if the guys think of some solution to this issue.

    4. Have any of you guys actually checked the 23 bookmarking sites and the profiles of people sharing your links? (do they really look like natural people?)

    5. With a paid account you can boost your site to additional sites but they do not tell you what sites they are using.

    6. Why does the tool have no reporting? Also how does it calculate "credits"

    7. Too much bandwagon hype over social networking when Matt at Google admits that +1 isn't a important factor at this time.

    SocialADR might help with initial traffic but their is better things you can do to increase traffic and more importantly conversions.

      If they were dofollow, I wouldn't mind the fact that the tweets always say "sponsored"... and I wouldn't mind nofollow if it didn't say "sponsored", but having to pay for nofollow tweets/links that are clearly marked as being sponsored, is not good value.

      At this point I have had about 250 bookmarks shared, and that has brought in a grand total of about 8 extra visitors to my site. Whip tee doo.

        Hi, I wasn't aware that the bookmarks are marked as sponsored; that really blows the whole thing if that's true. I wonder why they would do that? I mean I know why, but I think it makes their links and thus their service less valuable if their links look that way so in the end why would they want to make their links look less valuable if they're selling links?

        Can you tell me the easiest way to find these links so I can see for myself? (I know I could go searching for them in various ways but none of these ways seem easy or quick... so if you have a quick easy solution that would be great! I was going to join but if the links are in danger of looking spammy, I won't. That's why I don't use SocialMonkee any more even though I joined. Their links looked totally spammy when I saw some of them. Thanks for the info.

        To play devil's advocate re the bookmarks not bringing in traffic, I think their main purpose is to give your site some google juice, and if you've only been using it a month or so that may not be showing up yet. Have you had no positive movement on your google rankings?

        As to the comment above that Matt Putz says Google +1 is not an important factor, I believe he is one of the biggest liars on the planet. He also said that they were happy with the Penguin update and that just cannot be true at all, as it has wrecked their search results and everyone knows it. This is a case of saying the Emperor looks great when in fact the Emperor has no clothes. I've seen evidence of Google +1's making a difference, personally. It may not be evidence I can use in a court of law but it is my anecdotal evidence that Google +s do make a difference in rankings at least in some cases.

        One more question: Are all social bookmark site links no follow? I thought most were not; so why are these?

          Anything marked "ad", "sponsored" or "promo" is from SocialAdr... Yes.. it completely ruins it.
          So, you get no link juice, and not much traffic worth talking about.

          If you want to buy social traffic, Fiverr Stumble gigs are good IMO.

            According to socialadr tech support:
            "
            Only Tweets say that, see here: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...sponsored.html


            We use a ratio of about 80% dofollow / 20% nofollow social sites, and it's been proven that a mix of dofollow/nofollow is better for rankings than ONLY dofollow, as it looks more natural. Go to your "History" menu item in SocialAdr to access the history of your social submissions."

            Being skeptical I checked mine. Granted I don't have too many as I just recently joined but I have 24 bookmarks and one Tweet. (Yes the tweet said "Sponsored:" as the first word (See above link for explanation. )

            So out of 24 bookmarks (some at major sites like Delicio.us and Stumbleupon etc), about 60% were don't follow. As far as I'm concerned this is a good thing, because the Penguin looks at stats like how many do-follow vs nofollow links you have (from what I have read). For the small price I pay socialadr. if I get 200 bookmarks and 40% are dofollow, I think that's a pretty good deal.

            As to them looking spammy I don't think they do, in the sense that Google isn't going to be looking at the profile of the person sending them, what counts is that they're varied accounts and I saw nothing on any account that looked spammy, tell me if I'm wrong. Sure they are all bookmarks for various web sites and services but who's to say someone isn't interested in all those sites and services? If you saw my own Firefox Bookmark list you might think I was a spammer for SEO and IM but in fact they are sites I wanted to bookmark for my own purposes.

            Here's an example of one of the typical socialadr bookmarks for those who are interested: delicious dot com/gilpaul

            I think the main point is that (as I understand it) these are not being made by a bot but by real people.

            If I'm wrong please correct me.

              In regards to real people - its partly a automated process as you have to register for all the social book marking accounts in the free version I believe and manually click share bookmarks.

              I doubt any of the shares are by active users of those sites but more likely socialadr little network of posters.

              Also lack of proper statistics to measure traffic and performance.

              Its like being given a gun to shoot a target but having no score or evaluation.

              Also many people use it as a ad network and ignore the advice given by social adr i.e. write your bookmarks as a user not as a company salesperson.

              It should be noted that the links from socialadr are noted in Webmaster tools so you can check the "quality"

          I get the 3,000 links a month for about $70 a month. Tweets cost several "points" as do Google +.

          But the links are mostly Dofollow, and I get everything promised. The reporting is excellent. Every day I get e-mails telling me about my bookmarks. All the bookmarking sites are the major ones.

          A word about Socialmonkee. They also deliver what they promise, and you get an Elite membership forever for about $100. But they use their own network of 150 sites. And, of the 25 or so I checked, NONE of them get indexed by Google.
          I'm sure that they WERE indexed at one time...but not now.

            My advice? (Like anyone asked)
            Buy the Fiverr gig. For $5 you will see the results. All Fiverr gigs give you the links you can check and a report at the end of the gig. Some Fiver SEO gigs really deliver quality links, and some do not. You may get 650 comments on non-indexed sites in Chinese. But it's only $5 to find out.

            There is one person I use on Fiverr for Social Bookmarks that gives me 200 bookmarks on new accounts (meaning the accounts are mine and the comments will stay forever), and 50 of the sites are the major ones. For $5? Absolutely.

            Just a thought.

    Just use the free if at all. They don't even come close to delivering all the bookmarks they promise from their pay subscription. I paid for 6160 backlinks per month and got less than 200 after a week. Just a little shy, disputing credit card transaction with Paypal now.

    I'm using the $15 or whatever it is a month (lowest fee) pay version and I am happy with the bookmarks. I have delicious, digg, stumbleupon etc - many really good 2.0 bookmarks and I have it on DRIP so they are built slowly. I have 3 sites set up and have received 40+ on 2 sites and 20+ on one other site over one month.

    If you sign up I think it's important that you drip and I've heard that TOO MANY bookmarks can make google slap you so keep it reasonable as compared to your competitors. Someone who claims to be SEO expert also told me that google compares your bookmarks and +1's to your Facebook fans and likes and if they're not balanced reasonably they look badly on it. I find that a bit hard to believe but who am I to question an expert?

      The video has been viewed ten times, including about 5 of my own views.

      I love the concept of SocialAdr, but the results are awful. I'm guessing 99% of its users are using ****ty fake social media accounts.

    I'm at the same place as wushumaro, not completely sure how much it does for your sites

    I don't like the tweets I think they are useless ..
    but I do like the Facebook likes and google +1

    I have 7,323 shared bookmarks of mine (lazy account)
    37 tweets (I'm happy with this low count)
    24 google+ wish this was more

    Would be nice if I could see an exact percentage of nofollow / dofollow but they don't have this.

    I don't think this service works for real human traffic coming to your sites but I think when used correctly it can help (just help) your SEO. It's just an extra 'little' tool. For bigger sites you can use normal submission for new once use drip and for small ones use 'slow'.

    Also in general I'm using it to promote different deep links, and you should use their link spinner!

    I tried out SocialAdr for a bit one time and quickly realized that it's a domino affect of making yourself look bad if you truly want anyone to pay attention to your bookmarks at the sites you use. In order to get people to share your bookmarks on SocialAdr you of course have to share other people's bookmarks and in my opinion you have a very low quality of mostly ridiculous spam to choose from to bookmark of the other members. Share too much of their spam and no one will bother paying attention to your bookmarks at all anymore quite possibly.

    I don't use bookmarks of any type thinking they will help to rank for the long term. do or no follow is not the issue, thew main problem is that the links they create tend to be in a hierarchical structure and move all teh time (and eventually expire/get deleted/get archived somewhere Google hardly ever bothers to index).

    Solid,steady low level linking to inner URL's seems best for my sites with bookmarks used to get my fresh content indexed quickly (to avoid plagirism) and to provide social noise which is an increasingly important factor for URL bouyancy.

    I think measuring these services success as ranking tools is not really appropriate. That's not what they are really for (despite Synnds old tag line which suggested it "sort of" was)

    Ever notice that people who spend money on WSO, memberships and courses, are always complaining about being broke and not making any money ?

    They should have bought ASSETS instead.

    Isn't OnlyWire the exact same thing but costs 13$ instead of $40?

      You are mistaken.
      SocialADR can be Free or as little as $17/month for 400 submissions.
      You can also buy #'s of submissions for as little as 100 for $7.

      But you bring up a good point:
      How does Onlywire compare?
      And what are the differences?

      Socialadr gets you bookmarks from real people "out there" who bookmark your site - the bookmarks do not come from one central site which would be considered "webspam".

      As I understand it (I could be wrong), Onlywire submits your bookmarks all at once to a whole bunch of social sites but they would have a "footprint" of all being sent through Onlywire. Right?

      So does Onlywire provide any benefit?
