      Social bookmarking is a great SEO tool for a number of reasons. The first is that it creates additional inbound links to your content, which is always a good way to gain the attention of search engine bots and increase your page ranking.

      Secondly, social bookmarking and news aggregation sites are very popular, especially with the younger generation of internet-philes who are more comfortable receiving news from an online site than by watching television or reading the newspaper. Subscribing to an RSS feed for an aggregation site is a virtually effortless way to read about the latest topics of interest.

      Thirdly, social bookmarking works to market your online business in a viral manner. That is, these sites encourage the sharing of content. Readers who enjoy your content will rate it highly and add it to their list of favourite bookmarks where others can view it and even comment.

      Think of YouTube and how highly effective it is at spreading video clips. The same concept works with Social Bookmarking your blog posts and articles. The results could be financially rewarding and help you brand yourself as an expert in your niche.

      Other important sites are StumbleUpon.com, diigo.com, reddit.com, fave, Bleetbox, citeulike.org, connotea.org, newsvine.com etc.
      Thanks a lot for more sites. Do they need us to ping them after submitting our links?

    Social bookmarking definitely be helpful for the site to get the more backlinks. But the thing is to provide the unique and effective description in the submission with a view to getting the positive results and also be careful in choice of the title through which you are going to get the link to your site.

    Yes social bookmarking sites are very helpful to get huge traffic on site.They are increasing in popularity and also provide benefits from SEO . Every URL you bookmark on these sites could get more traffic from search engines because you can often add meta information that you can keyword optimize. People also spend time on these sites and when they see your social bookmarks, they might directly visit your URL as well as bookmark / vote for your links.

    Can anyone show me their social bookmarking page which has a high PR? I'm not talking about the home page of the site, their individual page.

    Can anyone show me evidence that 100 social bookmarking links has more power than 1 contextual link on a PR2 or higher page?

    Can anyone show me their traffic avalanche from social bookmarking? (Actually I do know an example myself, but it is in a very mainstream industry with tens of millions of people following the topic, not a normal IM niche.)

    My point is simply this...Social Bookmarking should be part of your linking efforts but with these understandings:

    1. The links are weak.
    2. It WILL help your content get indexed faster.
    3. It will not dramatically increase your ranking.
    4. Do not expect a rush of traffic.
    5. Do not expect sustained traffic.

    If you are spending more than 15 minutes a day on Social Bookmarking you are wasting your time...at least that's what my experience tells me.

    If you want targeted audience then social bookmarking is the best place. Facebook, Twitter, Stumbleupon and delicious is not just great they are awesome to manipulate the right audience and can make a chain to bring more targeted traffic by the time goes on. You can communicate with your audience and can make yourself updated with their want and can make your business fruitful accordingly.

    I don't get what a lot of you guys are talking about. Social bookmarking used to be the main back link method I used to rank articles for low competition searches. Now I just make a few from Digg, Linked In, Delicious, Stumble Upon, Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus, and the social sites where I have followers, it sometimes gets me over a hundred views, even two hundred. To manually do more than that, like a hundred on sites with no followers would be a waste of time, you could get better results through many other methods. It is less effective than it used to be, unless Google has changed it's algorithms yet again, which they probably have.

      Social bookmarking is a way of sharing, organizing, searching, and managing the bookmarks of your favourite web resources. You add the bookmark of each important page of your main site and all of your web 2.0 sites and then share them with all other Internet users.

      Would it be fair to say then that the best strategy is to join a handful and build up your network within those?

      Delicious is probably my favourite due to ease of use and can easily bookmark through toolbar (can't with Stumbleupon through safari for example).

    Exactly Social Bookmarking plays a vital role in indexing or crawling purpose.

    The best way to get indexed a blog or whatever is that as soon as you made your blog or anything else, do social bookmarking for that immediately on some good sites like Delicious, Digg, Reddit, Stumbleupon and more.

    While doing Bookmarking just remember few thing. I am sharing a thread with you. Hope it will help you.
