Free Social Bookmarking Service –
Social bookmarking service SocialADR is
becoming one of my favorite tools for getting
quality backlinks. And everyone I’ve shared it
with has told me the same thing.
For example, one of my best friends owns
TwinCitiesDiningGuide.com (the 800 pound
gorilla of online dining guides in
Minneapolis/St. Paul). I turned him on to this
social bookmarking service. When he started
using it, he got so many new clicks at his dining
guide that he had to increase his payments to his
hosting company by $40 a month to handle the
added capacity. Gotta love that!
SocialADR comes in two flavors
It has both free social bookmarking and automated social bookmarking. I and my friend both use
the automatic social bookmarking because it’s only $40 a month. And for all the bookmarks and
traffic I get, it might as well be free.
How this social bookmarking service works
Free Social Bookmarking version
I’ll explain the free version first. I’ve taken this directly from the SocialADR site so there’s no
chance of me getting the explanation wrong:
You earn credits by Sharing other members’ bookmarks. “Sharing” means you click a single
button and the bookmark is submitted to ALL the social bookmarking services you have setup.
The amount of credits you earn depends on your account type. A minimum of 8 credits is needed
before your own bookmarks can be “Shared” by other members.
The most effective way to earn credits quickly is to setup as many social bookmarking service
accounts as possible.
One credit is deducted from your account every time one of your bookmarks is “Shared” by
another member and submitted to a social bookmarking service.
They have a setup wizard that takes you through the process of setting up your bookmarks and
your bookmarking accounts. You can even stop in the middle of it if something comes up and
return to finish it later without having to start all over.
This is basically a “you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours” kind of a swap deal. While the
free social bookmarking is great for beginners and “newbies” to keep your costs down, I’m way
too busy and my time is way too expensive for me to invest the time.
Automated Social Bookmarking version
There’s not much difference in the two
versions except that with the paid version, all
you do is set up your bookmarks (you don’t
have to set up accounts at any of the
bookmarking services) and “the monkey
pushes the button.”
The free account people start bookmarking
your pages or sites for you to earn credits so
they can get their stuff bookmarked by the
other freebies. You do nothing but sit back and watch the traffic roll in.
The SocialADR Dashboard
The dashboard is really slick. It lets you keep track of all your bookmarks, go in and edit them,
and gives you complete statistics on your social bookmarking campaigns.
Don’t use this social bookmarking tool until you read this!
There’s a very cool feature of this bookmarking
service that you need to know about before you
start using it.
You can spin your bookmarks!
That’s right! It has a spinner in it so you can set
up your bookmarks to spin a different version
every time it gets posted. You can spin the title
and the description.
This way, rather than all your bookmarks looking
identical (so Google figures out real quick what
you’re up to and slams you for it) all your
bookmarks will look unique. That’s killer!
How many bookmarks can you expect?
