Social Bookmarking - An Easy Way to Explode Web Site Traffic

Aug 17, 2007
As webmasters we are always looking for new ways to increase the number of visitors to our web sites. When it began, social bookmarking was just a way for users to categorize and keep track of all of the web pages they liked. It did not take long for Internet marketers to realize that this could be very beneficial to them as well.

The way it works is a web site visitor registers with one or more of the social bookmarking sites and then they simply click a button which saves that site to their bookmarks much like Internet Explorers 'Favorites' and Firefoxes 'Bookmarks'. The advantage to this technique goes even further and creates a vote of quality, which is then stored in the database.

The bookmarking sites keep track of the number of votes made to each page. The more votes you have for a specific page the more it will show up to their visitors. A few days ago I was reading a thread in one of the more popular Internet marketing forums about how one guys site was on the front page of Digg. He claims from the time his site reached the front page one day before he had tripled quadrupled his profits.

Just imagine if your site had so many votes that it appeared on the front page of all of the major social bookmarking sites. You would probably be earning more money than you would know what to do with.

This technique has grown at a very high pace in the past year and I believe it is one that will stick around for the long haul. Those that jump aboard will reap massive benefits and those who do not will just be left behind.

One thing you can do in order to take advantage of this great new trend is to vote for your own sites. You can register with all of the well-known sites and start voting. Just remember you can vote for every single page on your web site and that will get your site going. If you do this regularly others will start to see the many votes and vote for themselves.

Many software developers are realizing the benefit social bookmarking has to web masters so they are creating some really great scripts. Most of these scripts are a little pricey but well worth the investment. If you look hard you just may find an extremely valuable script that will implement the benefits of social bookmarking to your web site at a very low price.
