Bookmarking Sites

Bookmarking sites are a combination of the directory and the social network. Users get to choose what kind of content they want to see and the website uses that information combined with past activity to make suggestions. Popular bookmarking sites include Digg, StumbleUpon and Delicious.

Also called social bookmarking, the sites work in a similar fashion to your social networking sites. Instead of posting personal messages and photographs, users recommend links to sites they have encountered. In an ideal world, you want everyday people you do not know stumbling upon your site and you want them to dig it. This may happen, but by creating a profile for your site, you can get the ball rolling.

It is possible to access many of the social bookmarking sites using your Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn profiles. If this is the case, I recommend you access the sites in this manner. Why? Because it makes access a lot simpler and easier for you.

If this is not the case, then create a profile in the same manner as for previous websites. Keep the tone relaxed and informative, do not over sell the business, but put a positive spin on it. You must, must, must, include your website’s URL in your profile.

Now, when you access your website find the webpage that you want to promote.

Click on the URL at the top of the browser and copy it.

Find the social bookmarking site’s recommend function and paste the link into the box marked “link URL.”

Fill in the rest of the information required. This will usually include the name of the site or company, some tags/keywords and a brief description or opinion regarding the site.

Post the link within the social bookmarking site and you will now have an active backlink.
