What Is The Best Social Bookmarking Secret

Aug 28, 2008
If you have a blog and you are not social bookmarking your articles you are making a big mistake. As a matter of fact, you are missing out on a tremendous amount of traffic and all of the benefits that go with it. It makes me wonder if this really is a secret that people are not aware of.

It shouldn't be a secret of all but if it is let me dispel the that notion right now by saying that you should take a few minutes and social bookmark every blog post that you make. To rely strictly on blogging and pinging to get your post out into the marketplace is short changing yourself.

Promoting your blog is more than just making a blog post. Promoting your blog is taking the extra step to social bookmark it to the top directories in a couple of very simple ways.

The benefits of social bookmarking are many. First of all you really will get more traffic when people know that you have an article that they want to read.

If you social bookmark your article into a directory such as Stumble Upon you are going to find traffic coming to your blog from the back link created when you do that social bookmark. If you have any doubts about this install Google Analytics code into the footer of your blog file and watch where your traffic comes from.

Social bookmarking also gives you search engine bait because the search engines love blog posts. You have to be smart about how you do this in terms of keyword relevancy, but it makes sense a search engine will spider a directory such as Stumble Upon way before they will spider your own blog.

Every time a user can find your website you are making it easy for them to do. Once they get there they can bookmark your RSS feed and then be kept up to date every time you make a new post. But until they know about you they can never do that. This is what social bookmarking does for you.

Another interesting point is you are not limited in the number of times you can bookmark your posts. If you are writing interesting articles and stories these directories relish the fact that you are bookmarking those into their directory.

If you have any doubt about what the best social bookmarking secret is the answer is just do it. Bookmark every chance you get and you will benefit from it.
