Promote Your Site With Social Bookmarking

You can promote your site with social bookmarking in order to develop a more active sense of community involvement for your site. Social sites that allow bookmarking give you the ability to create content and interact with the content of others.

Some social bookmarking sites function as a central link repository. This can be very handy for you if you access the Internet from a variety of devices over the course of time. Others take an even more social approach by allowing you various controls on the public visibility of your bookmarks based on your social settings. This gives you a better opportunity to increase your site traffic and to invoke interest in your site.

Among the most popular social bookmarking sites for site promotion are the ones that allow you to set up voting on articles. The more positive votes an article gets, the more exposure it gets. The articles with top billing get significant traffic, which can lead to a lot of referrals to your site. Thus, as you create articles for site content or for traffic generation from bookmarking sites, think carefully about the benefits of hot and controversial topics. Anything that spurs people to do a lot of voting could spur your site traffic too.

You can encourage social bookmarking by your visitors with the addition of favorite website bookmarklet links at the bottom of each of your article pages. You are probably already quite familiar with the common bookmarklet icons that appear for each social networking site at the bottom of article pages. Whenever one of your readers clicks on one of these bookmarklets, a bookmark is added on the corresponding social bookmarking website.

Some of the most popular bookmarking sites available right now are Digg, Reddit, Netscape, Stumbleupon, Blinklist,, Furl, Fark, and Simpy. You will notice that many other social networking sites are starting to add social bookmarking features as well.
