Choosing Between Social Bookmarking or Not

Aug 23, 2008
Do you feel like you are a serious Internet marketer? There always appears to be different levels of seriousness as you begin to analyze successful Internet marketing businesses. One area that is definitely true is when it comes to social bookmarking.

If you blog you should be social bookmarking. Social bookmarking is part of social networking and it is way to get your blog message out to the public. You certainly want readers coming back to your blog and your RSS feed does that for you.

But how do you get readers to your blog in the first place?

One of the best ways to do that is to social bookmark each blog post that you make to various social directories. Depending on the blogging platform that you use this can be extremely easy to do.

For example, Wordpress offers a plug in that contains many different social directories that you can submit to. Another thing you can do is go to Onlywire and join over 20 social directories at one time.

Then every time you make a blog post you go to only to your Onlywire account and submit one time and it will then be bookmarked to all of these different directories. This is a quick way if time is an issue for you.

However, we would suggest that if you are a serious Internet marketer that you take the time to bookmark your blog post to a handful of other top social directories. These should include the Digg, Propeller, Stumbleupon, Technorati, and others!

What happens when you social bookmark a post is you are creating a link with a short summary back to the blog URL itself. This is a great way for readers to come to your blog and discover more about you.

This also creates search engine bait as the search engines will spider these top social directories more often than they will your own website or blog. When you social book you create a backlink and the search engines will come and spider you on a consistent basis.

If you properly blog by targeting specific longtail keyword phrases, then you will find yourself ending up on page 1 of some of the top search engines for your blog post. This will create even more traffic for you.

As you can see there really is no choice comes to social bookmarking. If you are not doing that you are missing out on tremendous traffic and of course potential income.
