Sharing Social Bookmarking Links on Popular Bookmark Sites
Social bookmarking links are a great way for your customers to rank and store websites, articles, videos or any other type of content they see on the internet using social bookmark sites. For your business, it is also a way to increase your visibility online and effectively create needed backlinks to drive traffic to your business website or blog.
Using Social Bookmarking Sites
To get started using social bookmarking sites, you will first need to register as a user. Some of the more popular choices are Digg, Del.icio.us, Mixxx, Diigo, Reddit or StumbleUpon. If you only sign up for a few, these would be some the top choices with the most traffic , but there are many, many more!
You may also want to look around to see if there are niche sites that have bookmark options as well. If you find social bookmarking sites that cater to users beside yourself who are all interested in the same topic as your business or website, these would be even more ideal than these larger sites!
Then, pay attention to the sites, stories websites and content that gets bookmarked the most on the site and get ranked the highest. This will give you a good idea of what people what to see, share and read. This will help you determine what content of yours is best to share!
Don’t Be a Spammer
While you may be tempted to share social bookmarking links only to your business website or blog this is not a great idea. Try to diversify your profile by sharing content and links from other sites that you find interesting as well. Pushy sales copy on link after link will not do much for your business reputation or your website traffic.
Your business should also avoid opening several accounts on the same social bookmarking site just to vote for your own business. While it is understandable that you want to promote yourself, this is just another form of spamming. It can not only give your business a bad reputation, it can also get links to your website banned from being submitted on the social bookmarking site for everyone.
Why Try Social Bookmarking Sites?
Just like other social media, sharing social bookmarking links on popular sites can help to increase traffic to your website and be a very cost-effective way to promote your business.
