    Social bookmarking websites are a resource for Internet users to share their favorite websites. Not only is it a tool for sharing, but also to manage and organize your favorite websites online ??“ a lot like your "favorites" folder on your browser. That being said, this process offers a huge advantage for SEO as well as article, blog, and video promotion. Everytime you share a link for your article on Ezine, or your blog post, you are generating backlinks that help push up your ranking in search engines.

    Here are my top 8 favorite social bookmarking websites. What are yours?

    ??? DIGG
    ??? Delicious
    ??? StumbleUpon
    ??? Squidoo
    ??? Technorati
    ??? Reddit
    ??? Diigo
    ??? Propeller

    Im using Bookmarking Demon, so i really don't have a favorite site. I like to use as many sites as possible as only 1 type/site backlinks are no good. And i only use SB for my articles or for Yahoo answers. You will boost your page "weight" really good.

    Also if you don't know, Delicious, DIGG, Technorati, Reddit, Propeller...all are NoFollow sites. What means, these sites are not going to pass any "juice" to your site/landing page.

    They count as backlinks yes, but to pass PR "juice", no good.

    http://socialmarker.com/ is good free tool for social bookmarking.

    I second the recommendation of SocialMarker.com! It lists a ton of good ones that you can easily submit to through them.

    Also, Squidoo is huge to drive traffic to your site. It's great for backlinks, if done correctly. (Same with Hubpages)

    I recently discovered a free service called pingfm.com
    It's completely free and allows you to bookmark your content with lots of social media sites at the click of a button. [​IMG]

    pingfm and OnlyWire are excellent tools. I prefer the OnlyWire myself, but pingfm is a good one as well.

    I read somewhere that it's not good to do Social Demon or other companies b/c it flags your site and pushes you backwards. How many backlinks does Social Demon get you compared to how many you could do per day on your own? Is it where SD is putting the links or is it how many there are that's a problem (especially in Google's eyes)?

    If you are bookmarking your url that deals with marketing money making products to people, you will get less response from social bookmarking because most people believe everything is a scam.

    Simply bookmarking is not enough. You have to ping your social bookmarking profile, and ping the rss feeds and force google spiders to see your links.

    I am a big fan of multi-channel marketing[​IMG] and getting backlinks from various places including social bookmarking is what I do.

    Yes, they are no-follow but there are opinions that they are considered by Googlebots in their indexing/ranking algorithms.
    I'm also getting some traffic from some of these places, so why not [​IMG]

    I've just joined SocialMarker and am having trouble understanding one thing .... if someone can shed some light on this, I will be very indebted!! [​IMG] ----

    Once you go through and set up membership with all of the bookmarking sites within SocialMarker, how do you go about actually bookmarking something you read or write?

    And, I noticed (ok, another question here) that someone stated on this thread to ping the rss's of sites bookmarked also ..... what's that about? Anyone?
