Social Bookmarking - DIY Advice

11 replies
I'm new to affiliate marketing and have been spinning around warrior forum for a couple of days now, trying to read and take in what I can. I've searched the forum a bit, but not finding what I want exactly -- the best methods for DIY bookmarking.

I don't know alot about bookmarking, but I understand it creates backlinks which are important. Originally, I was hoping to pay for these, but I've come to the conclusion that I don't understand the terminology well enough to even understand what I'd be buying. It's apparently quite complicated. And apparently there is some risk involved with getting caught up in bad backlinks which could hurt my ranking, and I'd hate to take that risk, particularly on my first few sites.

So I figured I should just do it the hard way, and do it myself. Any advice on doing so? Is socialmarker.com the way to go? Is there a better site or way to do it?

Do I have to go back and re-bookmark after I add more material to my blog? Or is it a one time deal per blogsite?

Maybe I should ask about pinging as well. I've used pingler.com and googleping.com... I tied pingomatic.com, but keep getting a weird message saying "no blog URL?" so I haven't gotten that one to work. Are there other ping sites that I should consider using?

Thank you in advance for any help that you can provide.

      I find social bookmarking is close to worthless these days and definitely not a linking method you should employ without getting other high-quality links.

        Pinging is supposed to increase like-lihood your links will be indexed. I never really got into it as I know Google knows how to find them.

    Use Onlywire or Sendible with a syndication service so you can get bookmarked on other peoples profiles, not just your own. Sendible has prices around $9.99 per month very cheap with ability to post to hundreds of peoples profiles on over 50 social networks.

    Onlywire, Sendible, hootsuite and Socialsubmit are good for social bookmarking, where as pinging is a different thing
