I just want to ask a couple of questions about social bookmarking and social signals. I have tried searching for relevant posts but they dont exacly answer my questions.
Ok, say I have one website with 5 posts, I would like to do some SEO to, and I want to create some social bookmarks to places like reddit for example. I'll be using others too.
1: Would it be ok to use reddit to submit my 5 website posts on? Or is it better to submit only 1 post to reddit, and diversify my other posts to other bookmarking sites? The same goes to places like Youtube, if its better to use 1 post or ok to post all 5 to 1 channel/account? I just didn't want it to look too suspicious to google.
2: Should my account name for bookmarking site be 'website name' or 'persons name'?
3: To do with question 1, is it ok to submit one post from different multiple websites to reddit or other bookmarking site? I have heard good and bad for both ways (one website per bookmarking site - which has all post submits of 1 website, or bunch of posts from other websites to one bookmarking site).
4: Social signals - What is the difference between someone liking/sharing my post from my social media icons on my website, compared to liking/sharing on acual social site (copying the URL and posting it on social site)?
5: Is it necessary to have social media icons on my website?
Sorry for the long first post. I'd really appreciate if someone could answer these questions as its been bugging me for a while and will help with more peices of the puzzle.
