  1. Great points Herbert. I am new at blogging and have found that most of my traffic comes from social bookmarking. I do pay attention to varying my anchor text and using my url for some of my social bookmarks. This way I don’t have to worry about a penalty and can still post to all the social bookmark sites I use. I wasn’t aware that I should use more than just my site when bookmarking. I constantly share others stuff but most of it is my own. I will be aware of this from now on. Thanks again. I found this site on blog engage. Keep up the great work.

  2. Herbert,

    We’ve avoided using social bookmarking as a way to promote our company blog post because I’ve read that you take hundreds of bookmarks to equal the marketing effectiveness of one half way-decent link from another blog or website, a tactic which strikes me as being extremely spammy.

    Are we wrong?

  3. Hi Herbert,
    I do believe that social networking sites is still a better place to enhance your traffic rate. Make sure you bring variation in anchor text and description you are using otherwise it is considered to be spammy. Thanks for posting this useful article on social bookmarking.

  4. I recently did a social bookmarking campaign myself.. I am however not sure if this is as effective because all the links are mostly nofollow

  5. Social bookmarking is really too much helpful in SEO campaign…posting fresh content and continuous voting are the appreciable way for getting search engine attention
