The idea of Social bookmarking is to share plugworthy material with the public whether is it links to pages, links to pictures, links to music and more. Social bookmarking sites like Digg, and StumbleUpon allow internet users to receive the traffic they need by submitting their sites to the proper categories related to their post and seek out others with similar interests.
Benefits of social bookmarking:
- More traffic
- More links directing to the site/ post/ page
- Ability to find out more on same subject
- Ability to actively bookmark other websites you enjoy
In using social bookmarking, it is somewhat like a super link exchange that you can automatically add to. Think about it, the more you bookmark a link, the easier it can be found.
However, do not abuse the system and submit a link one too many times. For your friends, you would be able to use it as a way to share your favorite sites. You blog, then bookmark the post, and the site allows others to be able to find your entry. You can bookmark other sites, which is great!
Do you use social bookmark sites? What sites are your favorite?
