    Just How Effective Is Social Bookmarking?

    I am considering purchasing a social bookmarking package from someone, but I really have no idea how it works or if it will bring good traffic to one of my websites. Basically, I would like to know how effective this is and where I should look for a good bookmarking service. My websites desperately need a bit of exposure!

    I have done social bookmarking for many of my sites. It helps to rank your website better in search engines. You also get a good pagerank on next Google PR update.

    One should take care that those social bookmarking links are from high PR and are Do follow.

    Quality matters and not quantity.

    You can browse this forum for people offering social bookmarking service. Check Marketplace --> Services section.

    Social bookmarking is highly recommended for the new sites to get them indexed soon. It helps to build backlinks and traffic to our sites. " Dailyearner " is the most trusted seller in our forum, you can hire him for the social bookmarking service.

    The SEO value of Social Bookmarking has its pros and cons.

    The major cons are the quality of traffic tends to be poor and the traffic boost is only temporary. You also need to evaluate the quality of the service provider. Some use automatic submissions or get flagged resulting in their accounts being banned.

    On the pro side, bookmarking is a good way to "seed" new articles so that they are found and indexed by the search spiders. In addition, Do Follow bookmarks flow PR to internal pages on the website which is very useful. Another use for bookmarking is to target keywords. The bookmarks show up in the organic results and help drive traffic to your site. In order for the bookmarking to be effective you should use a few different titles and descriptions.

    One of my sites appeared on Redit.com Front page and Stumbleupon, and got maby 2000 visitors, but after that it returned to normal 150 -200 visitors. Didn't even know until now after looking at my referrers in G.Analytics .
    It was becuase only I had some dumb thing on my site, (a flash animation I made way back years ago). Didn't really seem to have any good effect on the site. Just a waste of bandwidth. lol

    Thanks for all of the helpful tidbits. One question:

    How do you manually submit a ton of bookmarks?

    I haven't had much luck with social bookmarking traffic-wise but I was able to rank up a keyword I was after. If anything give it a try but make sure you target a keyword.

    Bookmarking services are the fastest way to get traffic to your post. For me the best are reddit and digg.
