  2. 2. Bookmarking is a method for internet users to store, organize, search, and manage bookmarks of web pages on the Internet that the user wants to remember and/or share. Social bookmarking allows users to tag, and bookmark items, those items are then stored on the person's profile and can be shared with others. Social bookmarks rank high in the search engines and can help a person to find information that they are looking for quickly and easily. When you use a social bookmarking site, rather than a search engine to search for information you are getting a more targeted batch of information to look through. These targeted items are also ranked in how useful they were to others. The information found on such sites was already thought to be useful by someone else. “The concept of shared online bookmarks dates back to April 1996, delicious founded in 2003 pioneered tagging and coined the term social bookmarking” (Wikipedia) When it comes to business social bookmarking is about ____________ and _____________. Why use social bookmarking: Social bookmarking is used for ______________, ______________ and _______________. 1. Great SEO a. Many social bookmarking sites give you backlinks to your site i. 1 key to SEO is the # of links to your website pages from other respect and credible (high Page Rank) sites. “Search engines often use the number of
  3. 3. backlinks that a website has as one of the most important factors for determining that website's search engine ranking.” (Wikipedia) ii. Link Popularity is affected by: Number of inbound links Quality of the link source Type of link Link URL consistency (when search engines total the number of inbound links to a page they frequently assume different URL’s point at different pages http://www.yoursite.com http://www.yoursite.com/ http://yoursite,.com/index.html There might be considered different pages and thus not count a 3 links to 1 page. 2. Drives traffic to your site via the social bookmarking sites search on your topic a. Users watch for items with particular tags or keywords. The more bookmarks to your posting the higher up in the results your bookmark will show (same as a search engine) and be seen as a valuable reference. 3. Getting front page status from those voting sites a. The social bookmarking voting sites show the sites with the more votes on their homepage.

  4. 4. The most important part of Social Bookmarking is the ______________. One tactic that I have started using for 1 of the social bookmarking sites I use, I picked a tag/keyword that covers what my website/blog is about and I bookmark all the good material I find related to that tag/keyword mine and others. (NOTE: When utilizing social bookmarking you never want to bookmark only your own website – eventually you will be viewed as a spammer.) I have become known for that keyword/topic Types of Social Bookmarking Sites: There are two major forms of Social Bookmarking Sites General Bookmarking Sites: the contributing user tags a URL and other users decide if they want to tag and link to the website from their own account.

  5. 5. Social News Sites: these sites tend to focus on news stories blogs, ect Features tend to be breaking news headlines & discussions of current events – generally not for posting “websites”. Some sites are led by an editorial team that decides if a URL is worth sharing. technorati newsvine digg stumbleupon From here sites can be broken down even more between: NoFollow: A website can direct a search engine spider not to follow a link that appears on it. The idea being that the target website’s ranking will not influence the website indexed. The Nofollow attribute will prohibit the sharing of site value to other sites. Nofollow attribute values are most often used on sites with user generated content, like use comments and blogs. The nofollow tag was introduced by Google as a means of combating spam. The theory goes like this - Google search bots do not credit any links with nofollow tag attached to them. Google advised webmasters to nofollow all the unwanted, unrelated links so that Google could improve their searches, by eliminating any false links. Does this mean that the site isn’t worth your effort, no! It just means those sites are not there for backlink juice, but those sites still have the ability to offer traffic to your content. DoFollow: Gives the search engines permission to follow links. Dofollow is simple but very useful tag for webmasters who have sites, directories, forums or social community or bookmarking sites. Dofollow tag allows the sharing of site importance to those sites whom they are linking with. Search engines follow these links if link attribute is dofollow. Not define will be automatically counted as do follow link back. *If you are purely looking for backlinks to your site and not traffic just submit to dofollow sites. Keep in mind that some sites are based on the number of times an article is bookmarking and other sites have a voting based system. Either way you have to get others to bookmark to add true value to your bookmark. You know what social bookmarking is, but you wonder how do I get started?
