Social Bookmarking for Business

  1. 1. Social Bookmarking<br />By Jerry Nihen<br />Jay Nine’s Social Media Marketing<br /><br />
  2. 2. Social bookmarking, basically, is a way for users to organize, store, and search for bookmarks of resources online. These websites – like Digg, StumbleUpon, Delicious, etc. – are basically a way of storing your “favorites” or bookmarks on a web based level, rather than on your browser (like you would by “adding to favorites” in FireFox). These posts and submissions are “tagged” with keywords, which will quietly grow your websites ranking in search engines.<br />
  3. 3. Businesses can harness this power to drive traffic to their websites, articles, videos, and more; while also increasing the SEO of their website. A great way to increase the “index” of your blog or video (like a YouTube video) in Google is to index it through social bookmarking sites. Basically, you are creating the back links back to your article/site, that can last for years and help not only drive traffic to your site, but also to increase the pagerank of your site.<br />
  4. 4. While social bookmarking is a powerful tool, this is one of the online marketing tactics I do recommend you use an automated resource to submit. This is a long term strategy of repeatedly bookmarking multiple articles and videos, to grow yourself over time. Manually submitting to these websites can take up a ton of time that is better spent elsewhere.<br />
  5. 5. Why get on social bookmarking?<br />
  6. 6. This is not a complex technology, and I fully believe that more users will be using web-based bookmarking in the years to come. It is important for business owners to get a strong foothold by submitting their OWN articles to these websites (as you control the keywords and information related to the article, rather than having someone without the knowledge doing it.<br />
  7. 7. Also, you’re quietly driving traffic and tapping into the viral power of these bookmark sharing sites, and we all know that long term traffic strategies are the key to a successful online marketing campaign for ANY business.<br />
  8. 8. I use a resource called “Social Monkee” which is a free resource that allows you to submit to 25 social bookmarking websites with the click of a button, all for free! The free option allows you to submit one piece of content a day to these platforms, which is more than enough for me. There is also a paid version, but I have found the free version works perfectly fine for me.<br />
  9. 9. I highly recommend you use this resource to submit your own content (even if it’s just your actual website right now, or a page on your website) to these directories. It only takes me a couple of minutes to do, and has really helped increase the back link traffic to my websites.<br />
  10. 10. The only downside I have hit so far with the free version is that it randomly selects the 25 out of 100 top social bookmarking sites. So, the article won’t necessarily submit to your favorite one every single time. They do offer paid versions that allow you to do this, I just haven’t used them yet.<br />
