Understand SEO (Part 8) Social Bookmarking

Social Bookmarking

Social bookmarking is a highly effective marketing strategy that is becoming increasingly more attractive as handheld digital devices gain in popularity.   The process involves the submission of your website or blog to several online social bookmarking services. These “bookmarks” are an enhanced version of our ability to assign “favorites” on our search engine toolbar.

Once your website is submitted to several of these social bookmarking sites, it is not uncommon to begin to see an increase in traffic right away, if not immediately.  As your popularity grows on these sites, your traffic will increase as well.  Within a few weeks you should see noticeable improvements.  An added advantage is that these bookmarks, once located by consumers, can often spread rather quickly across the net as people begin to share them on social media sites, such as Facebook and Twitter.  The opportunities for increased traffic are infinite when properly executed.
