    No. What do you mean "still"? I don't think it's ever been really effective.

    Most social bookmarks are pretty useless these days. You're probably better off looking into web 2.0 backlinks over social bookmark backlinks.

    Social bookmarks mostly help in quick indexing. It doesn't pass lots of link juice. But high quality bookmark can give you some referral traffic if you know how to do it. Dont need to waste time on social bookmarking site where people don't engage. Those are just waste of time.

        People, people. Think of rivers. How does the Mississippi end up being so big?

        It's got a bunch of rivers flow into it. And those rivers have rivers flowing into them. And those rivers have rivers flowing into them.

        You get a good link if you get it from a river that has a bunch of rivers that each has a bunch of rivers that flow flow into it. You get a better link if you add another tier of rivers. Or more rivers.

        You get enough rivers, you end up with an ocean. An ocean ranks high in Google.

        Don't bookmark. Think. Strategize. Come up with a way to get a few backlinks that either have backed links baclinking to them or a way to get a few backlinks to which you can create backlinks that have backlinks that have backlinks.

        And all backlinks must be followed otherwise you're wasting time.

            Hi aryvartit,

            Yes bookmarking sites like Reddit, Stumbleupon, Delicous etc still do help in SEO just you need to make a proper strategy for it.

            You should be aware of your audience and the content you share.

            It should be relevant to your website and at the same time it should not be promotional every time.

      Reddit isn't a social bookmarking site, but a collectively "curated" aggregator for interesting topical links. It's a very popular site and can definitely bring some traffic, but the links are nofollow. That's right, Reddit doesn't have any direct SEO benefit.

      Rest of the list is more traditional "social bookmarking". I don't know Diggo, but the other place your link on a new PR0 page that isn't linked from any strong page. This is what makes social bookmarking pretty much worthless.

        No, it's not. It's not even SEO, most of the time. The links have to be followed for them to count as SEO at all. Most social bookmarking sites add the nofollow tag.

      Toshan, SEO India, ever check the links you get from social bookmarking sites? You should, then you'd know that most, if not all, are nofollow and, since you're SEO India and know that nofollow links pass neither juice nor anchor text, you'd also know they're not useful for SEO. You would know they do not help with ranking.

      Toshan, SEO India, you should know that you shoot yourself in the foot in your efforts to sell SEO services if post things that show you don't know basic SEO.

      Social bookmarking, if done correctly, drives traffic to your site.

      If your site has great content and someone who owns a website is very impressed, that someone might link to your site. And that will help with SEO, if they don't add the nofollow tag to the link.

      But social bookmarks, on their own, directly, don't help... Even if the few, rare ones that don't have the nofollow tag... You, as SEO India, know that any new page on the internet starts with zero juice, that you need to link from other pages to it for it to pass juice to you, don't you?

      Traffic generation is largely dependant upon the content you post on social bookmarking sites. An appealing title and quality content will help you drive traffic to your website. And also, you must bear in mind that, as it happens with all social networks, the key to be successful is to be social. The more links and bookmarks you submit, the more traffic you will obtain to your site.

      Well, social signals are not SEO. They're not known to help at all. You can use likes and such as a "social proof" on your site - being popular is sort of a marketing argument.

      Unless you get the link from the page that has high PR, the high PR is not useful to you.

      Each page gets its own PR... There is no high PR domain, only high PR home page or high PR inner pages.

      But, since Google has stopped making that info public, how do you know what the PR is?

      How does that work? So I submit my page to digg and that causes google bot's CPU to overclock? Does google's hardware have some special turbo mode that gets enabled when it's a social bookmark?

      Did I miss the memo? When google bot finds no follow links on sites that are heavily spammed does this now cause it to jump into top gear and push all the real links to the back of the line?

        Aside from people claiming sources of crappy nofollow backlinks, such as blog commenting and forum signatures, are great for SEO, I'd say the biggest source of bad advice/junky posts on this forum are from supposed SEOs that confuse non-SEO techniques with real SEO techniques. Sources of traffic outside of Google SERPs are fine, but they have nothing to do with "boosting your rankings." If people could keep the SERPS ranking techniques separate from non-SEO traffic techniques, the quality of replies on this forum would go up a great deal. There probably wouldn't be many replies, but at least the ones that were made might be helpful.

    I don't think so, only if you actually get referral traffic.

    For instance if you post something relevant and of genuine interest to people on reddit you will get lots of traffic.

    Otherwise just stick to posting on Google plus, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and LinkedIn.

    Local business directories are great still for SEO. Like hotfrog, Yelp, Manta.

      What's high PR got to do with anything? You're not getting a backlink from the page that's got the high PR. Plus, since Google's stopped updating PR publicly, you don't know the PR of a page. Pages that used to have a PR of 5 might have a PR of 5, 8, 2 or 0 now.

      That depends on your definition of work. If it means it helps SEO, it does not work. If it means it may help with traffic, then it may, indeed, work, assuming what you're bookmarking is worth people's time.

      There's no such thing as "high PR" in social bookmarking. You're getting a weak link that's buried somewhere deep in the site structure. You're just deluding yourself if you think that this helps.

    I think all Off Page Techniques are good for improving ranking but you know how to use it.

    Basically two factors are very important in Social Bookmarking:
    1st - Drive free and targeted traffic
    2nd - Increase popularity of the website or the blog

      Yes bookmarking sites like Reddit, Stumbleupon, Delicous etc still do help in SEO just you need to make a proper strategy for it.

      You should be aware of your audience and the content you share.

      It should be relevant to your website and at the same time it should not be promotional every time.
      So is eating cashew chicken, and just as useful to SEO.

      Yes, for indexing, no for increasing rank, increasing backlink count? It's not an SEO-useful link, so what if you increase the count with it?

      No, it will not. Because the link you create is coming from a spanking new page, a page that has no power, a page the high-authority site owner is not going to create links to. So, how will it help?

    Yes, it is helpful. Social Bookmarking is still a worth for a website only when it is done on high PR sites. A popular SB sites could help a newly build website to reach its targeted audience quickly and with a good pace as well. If you choose Reddit, Bitly, Delicious, Disqus, Stotify, Stumbleupon, Diigo etc you could have increase your online presence rapidly. Just think about choosing these sites only.

    social bookmarking is good task but only when if you are done it on good sites means that sites have a good page rank, domain authority and alexa.

    Sites- scoopit, reddit, diigo, delicous, youmob, pinterest, folkd, myspace etc.

      There's no such thing as "high PR website". You're not getting a link on that juicy front page.

      And see what you've done? You made me sound like a broken record. If you'd just read the thread you'd know this already.

      So you're talking about links from PBNs? That has nothing to do with the topic. Those links of your can actually have an effect.

      I have no idea what you're actually trying to say, but it's safe to say that "very much important" totally false.

      Sigh. It's easy to post this kind of garbage, and it'd take me at least three times the space to properly refute your ignorance and stupidity. Well, that's internet in a nutshell.

      TL;DR version: Sites don't have pagerank, domain authority is useless in this case, pagerank you see is two years out of date, Alexa is completely useless, and the links aren't on the front page but on some new weak page.

    social bookmarking sites are effective or not? Well we have our own experience on behalf of that we all are here commenting. As per my experience its not worthy to think that its the best way to get backlinks but yes its a way to get backlinks. Social bookmarking sites are helpful to crawl your website if you're site is fresh. And there are some sites such as delicious, scoopit, stumbleupon etc where you can connect with groups and communities which helps your to increase your social presence among the people related to your niche. So don't just think about links or links, there are lots of other benefits that you can get from social bookmarking sites.

      Indeed. There's a bunch of clueless morons who'd list anything as a SEO technique.

      Here's some more suggestions:
      - Drinking local hipster coffee
      - Posting cat pictures to Twatter
      - Effing around in Reddit
      - Creating forum profiles because apparently that's a thing for some reason
      - Uploading your furry porn to Tumblr
      - Pimping your business in all the places where buyers are such as random forums and comment sections of obscure blogs
      - Storing bookmarks because the whole world wants to know your filthy browsing habits

      I am hereby officially listing listening to disco music as an SEO technique. Now, go listen to disco for a month, then report back with the increased position in Google your keywords have.
