I'm building the links on my website. Writing a blog page is hard. But social bookmarking is super easy.
I've found 100's of 'dofollow' bookmarking sites to get links from but I cant believe Google attachs the same value to them as a blog....whats the catch?

      • As google said low social bookmarking are harmful to your website ranking. But there are few high-quality social bookmark sites that can help you like a killer. Like: reddit, stumbleupon, digg, diggo, slashdot, delicious etc. Those aren't risky at all. Even help to get the higher rank. Don't focus on link quantity, just focus on link quality and variations of backlinking.

    Social bookmarks are worthless for building links that search engines care about. The simple rule of thumb for backlinks is this - if you can place the link, yourself, it is likely a completely worthless link. The links that matter are ones that someone at another website has to decide to place on their site - not something you can do, yourself.

      Does google recognize them and discriminate against them? Do you have proof, eg. matt cutts statement?
