    Social are nofollow links that don't rank pages.

    You need followed links to rank self hosted money pages.

      I just found a new social bookmarking tool www.rankle.me.
      It's not just bookmarking, it's more a user-curated content recommendation tool that recommends content to your interests. But it has a special feature for social bookmarking in own collection and users can share content easily in other Social Medias which builds links. Looks really nice!

    There is not a single reason to use bookmarking sites. They will not help you and if your link profile contains too many of them, they WILL hurt you. Penguin is coming soon and a whole lot of people are going to be very unhappy when it does.

    It depends on the type of social bookmarking you are using, I am using a high authority that is not only helping the SEO but even driving traffic, crappy ones would hurt ur site.

    The only bookmarking site I would recommend is reddit.com because of its billions of pageviews. You would give traffic if you post fresh or real interesting content over there. There are so many opportunities to answer questions related to services/products over there.

    The positive effects of social bookmarking for publishers of news sites, blogs, and other websites are outstanding. Social bookmarking can introduce sites to others with relevant tastes and drive traffic and valuable backlinks to your site.

    Some social bookmark sites pass on link juice, while some use the NoFollow attribute. But do not let the use of NoFollow fool you, the search engines are looking beyond the incoming links from social bookmarking sites to gauge their value to their search indexes.

    For real long term benefits for a site that relies on SEO you cannot just look at any one factor.

    Google will (and will do so even more in the future) look at the overall quality/authority of your site.

    Excessive 'use' in any area is likely to find penalties

    Any signs of 'manipulating rank' is likely to find your site in trouble. If not today then tomorrow or one algo change.

    Would a 'normal' site profile expect to have some social bookmarking? Of course it would.

    Does a site that has nothing but 'do-follow' links look like it manipulating page rank? Of course it does.

    A more holistic view of SEO is needed these days and as I said - even more so in thefuture if you don't want to find yourself penalized at some point.

    It's always about how you're using any source in the web. If you spam it and do it only for link building it can disqualify you. If you have a great product or service you offer (which I hope), it should be posted in any sources where potentials clients are.

    Marketing and advertising has changed dramatically with the web and social medias. People don't want to see ads anymore. They want to content marketing. Funny videos with your products, other people recommending it and creative ways it's presented.

    Social bookmarking can help you to spread and be seen. And if other users share it through social bookmarking site in the site or also on other social medias you build quality links. But it's not everything about SEO, it's about selling your product. The best SEO is useless if people don't by. Right?

    I understand that bookmarking is one of the most effective traditional seo tool but don't you think it is kind of outdated now? I mean blogging, link building and keyword postings are the real deal these days. Any guidance in this matter would be highly appreciated.

    I think people are getting confused here. Bookmarking sites and social networking sites are not the same thing. Digg and Delicious are bookmarking sites. Twitter, Facebook and Reddit are social networking sites.

    The difference is bookmarking sites are places where you ... well ... bookmark pages you would like to return to later. Networking sites are where people discuss things and develop relationships that they may be able to leverage. Networking can drive traffic. Bookmarking does very little to drive traffic and build your reputation in a community.

    If your site is helpful for small business owners, I would recommended BizSugar. It's a great social bookmarking site for sharing information about entrepreneurship or small businesses news. All the links on this site are also dofollow.

    Sites like FB and Google + wont help you much in rankings, but they can help you to get new content index quickly.

    Social Bookmarking helps your website get better search engine rankings. The more you have and the better sources they are from, the better your site will rank. It also can help you get direct traffic from the sites you're submitting too. Also, sometimes the page on the social site you submitted your link to will get ranked for keywords in the title you used, and people click on that from the search engines.

    Reddit works really well for me. Besides the backlink quality, sometimes my links get upvoted and I get a few thousand hits directly from there.

    Social bookmarking is one of the top three link building strategies. You will be able to improve your website's Google ranking by improving your link popularity through social bookmarking. Social bookmarking brings about numerous benefits to your website and this article will benefits all the primary and secondary benefits of social bookmarking.

    Manual social bookmarking really works to improve your site's ranking. Some of its benefits are:

    1. Social signals from quality social bookmarks. Google LOVES it!
    2. Get your site/url indexed in a short time.
    3. It is Penguin friendly as long as you don't spam to hundreds of bookmarking sites.

    You can outsource social bookmarking tasks at Redgage, as there are plenty gigs that will bookmark your URL to 15-25 social bookmarking sites for $5. I would recommend one express gig from a seller named "norbwinslow" who manually bookmarks your URL to 21 PR4-PR8 social bookmarking sites. He also pings your site and share it on Facebook and Twitter (great to index and gain variety of backlinks).
