The Power of Social Bookmarking

Social Bookmarking is a very effective method of promoting a website or blog via the use of user generated content. If a submitted content is successful, this can send thousands of visitors to your site in a short period, potentially leading to numerous incoming links. This method of promoting content via social media sites is commonly termed as linkbait.

The positive effects of social bookmarking for publishers of news sites, blogs and other web sites is outstanding. Social bookmarking can introduce the sites that you own or you like to others with relevant tastes, can drive traffic to your site, and valuable back links.

The external meta data compiled via user generated descriptions, tags, titles and categorization is incredibly valued by the search engines, as in the same philosophy as anchored back links, descriptive content about a web site defined by the users of that site who are not associated with the marketing or coding of that site, can be extremely powerful in gauging the importance and relevance of the content and tags which are used on that site.

Bookmarks show how a site is perceived, and when these sites allow voting, they also show the engines or whatever classification system which monitors voting, how people feel about the quality of the site. Furthermore, social bookmarking can introduce a site to the search engines, as in some cases, people may find and bookmark a site or a site’s internal pages before a search engine can find those pages via another form of inbound link.

My favorite Social Bookmarking sites are Technorati, Digg, and reddit.
