A friendly approach of SEO: Social Bookmarking Sites

Nowadays’ Internet is based upon social connections, truthfulness, fairness and its basic aim is to help people find the most relevant and reliable information.

Social Bookmarking Sites are the existing “marketplaces” where anyone can share his/her opinion and knowledge about the processes that come off in our Planet.

If you have an honest position on the matters of the world, the best you can do is to visit one (or even all) of the Bookmarking Sites and share it. It was a bit difficult formerly, because the necessary technical background were not given. If you wanted to share something at that times, you should have used newspapers, radio or television stations for this purpose.

Today the situation is much better. Dropping only a couple of lines to your friends or acquaintance e.g. on Facebook or Twitter would take only a few minutes, but your announcement is immediately posted to your audience. However, this very simple process could be dangerous if you are unattended: pushing the “publish” button you may even approve such things you would have never posted before! This can be irrevocable so be careful and double-check your post before publishing it (the related links too).

A. Let’s see these Social Bookmarking Sites from inside!

I’ll indicate the current (when this page was written) Google PR (Page Rank, the higher is the better) and Alexa Rank (a special metrics for the sites, the lower is the better) of the sites, too. These two numbers will be in quotes as the follows: [Google PR, #Alexa Rank-on the World]. Why should we use these two numbers? There are several important numbers for measuring purposes, but almost every company – who deals with certifying of websites – applies PR and Alexa as a permanent basis, so we will do the same. Are you interested in site metrics? Visit and learn more on Alexa.com.

It is almost impossible to list all sites – however, I am willing to -, so I’ll show you only some of them. I am very sorry if your favorite is missing: it doesn’t mean that your selected one was not important. only the limits of my website determine the length of the list.
Let’s see my favorite picks!

– Plus.Google.com

Plus.Google.com - Social Bookmarking Community Logo - Social Bookmarking Sites[PR9, #1] Google has had its own novelty: Google Plus or G+1. You know what Google is, so you are aware of its role and importance on the Internet as well. What does Google Plus mean then? Google Plus is a new social network created and operated by Google and is fast growing in its database. Its main aim is filtering the content of the sites applying a special filter called: Popularity. The basic idea is as follows: If somebody really likes your site he will push the G+1 button so giving a signal to both the owner of the site or blog and to the whole world – through Google of course – as “I do like this content and I accept the theory of the site!”. Getting lots of Google Pluses on your site or blog post will not only get you visitors and also will help to boost your rankings in Google. You may feel this influence in your increasing number of visitors after a while. Google has a special Chat channel (Hangover) also.
To get into this “round” is very simple: if you undertake your personality and real face, using your @gmail account you may take part in G+1. What you need is to fill in your profile correctly. Your profile may contain links to your all existing profiles (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Youtube, Flkr, and so on), and it is a very great advantage. I have to mention the Rich Snippets here too: if the authorship of an article or site is proven – by Google first – you might get a featured listing. It means a better position among the search results. Better position is equal to more apperance, so likely more profit if you want to sell something. Google Plus button may lead you directly to the profile of the author or website owner.
It is a very good feature but almost everybody is afraid of it a bit, altough it doesn’t mean any risks.

– FaceBook.com

Facebook.com - Social Site - Social Bookmarking Sites[PR9, #1] Facebook is the most popular today. Billions visit it a day, millions of Likes, messages, photos, videos, etc. If you are not a member currently you will in the near future because your friends are members. And it still worth because Facebook takes care of its members.
Facebook was founded for meeting purposes of existing friends, classmates, acquaintance, etc. basically. It means that it is very difficult to establish a connection with a completely strange person. Friends’ friends’ friend can be your partner if you can prove your identity. Be careful with the unsolicited partner requests because you might be punished (account suspension, even disclosure)!
If you see a Like button on any site and you push it, it can mean that you really like the site and you want the site owner to know this fact. If you see a simple Facebook button on the site it can lead to a Personal page of the company or person, it may differ. Let me allow a little example of the difference of Links and Likes. This link leads you to my personal profile and this one is to the surface of SEO Service Guide on Facebook page. If you click on them, it doesn’t mean unconditionally a Like for me but simply a visit to the destination. The Like button differs from these links, you can find it on the bottom of my site. If you click on it it means a Like for me.
Did you know that you can Like “only” up to 5.000 (five thousand) likes? So, treat with it carefully where, when and what you like.
For further information please read Facebook’s TOS (Term Of Service), and read it carefully, please.
Notice: you have to be a Facebook Member – and Logged In – if you want to Like somewhere something.

– YouTube.com

Youtube.com - Video Sharing Channel - Social Bookmarking Sites[PR9, #3] YouTube’s popularity and position, so its “weight” takes it incredibly important on the nowadays’ Internet.
Almost everybody knows YouTube (as people say: there are two groups of mankind: the first, who have already met Youtube, and the second, who will meet it). Uploading videos is still FREE, and it will as they promise int he future, too. If you have a @gmail account, you have gained an instant access to YouTube, so you can visit youtube.com without any logging-in procedure if you are logged to your Google gmail, Webmaster or e.g. Analytics account. The only thing to do is to choose a Username for your video channel and customize the layout of your account. I assigned YouTube to this list because you may not neglect the importance of video-blogging. If you aren’t good in producing video or willing to be good at it, don’t hesitate to make your first production as soon as possible.
I’d like to mention the treatment of the video channels. You can upload as many videos as you want but you have to keep the rules, for instance Copyrights (e.g. the music you apply for your video can be copyrighted) or Privacy. The status of the videos you upload can be Private (for users with link only), Private but for small groups (up to limited number of users with email identification) or Public ones, it is entirely up to you. I suggest you uploading a video privately first, then examining and perhaps correcting the possible faults, and after this procedure changing the status from Private to Public.
You may give the name of the channel you operate to your visitors. If somebody clicks on your link, your channel will be visible. You can have subscribers and you can be a subscriber to other channels as well. After a while Youtube will offer you wearing you real name instead of your selected nickname (if any). Accept it and undertake your personality because you can gain trust in the eyes of your visitors (you are not a hidden third party). Do you want to visit one of my channels?
You may Like or Share any video, it doesn’t count unlike in Facebook. You may pick up the link of your chosen video or embed it on your site.
Note: you have to be logged in either to your @Gmail account or Youtube to upload a video or subscribe.

– Twitter.com

Twitter.com - One Of The Most Popular Social Sites - Social Bookmarking Sites[PR10, #8] Twitter is very popular site. Registering is very easy: give your credentials and you are inside immediately. Tweet means a short message in max. 140 characters. Why only 140 chars? Basically Twitter was designed for these kind of short messages. If you sit in your car and you want to send a message to your Followers, this amount is enough.
About its structure: You may Follow anybody without any previous negotiations – it is an advantege if he/she accptes this – and you may obtain Followers as well. Following somebody means that you will get all messages he/she writes. If you write a tweet your Followers will get it. What is it good for? A short message should be a relevant one so it can be useful and it is not so time consuming. See the TOS (Term Of Service) for further information.
What will happen if you meet a Tweet button on a website and you push it? Try it out without any commitment here. You will be redirected to Twitter.com – in this case to my page on Twitter – and you will be given the chance whether you “tweet” me something or not, Follow me or not. Ok, I have revealed my Twitter account so I have nothing to hide anymore. It is very important to know that this button and the button you see on the right side leads to the account of the person or company directly. Twitter has a “right hand” called Twellow.com. Using Twellow you may find Twitter followers anywhere, and it gives you backlink, too. If you want to see my profile, you can do it clicking here.
Note: you have to be a Twitter Member – and Logged In – if you want to write a tweet.

– LinkedIn.com

LinkedIn.com - The Professional Network - Social Bookmarking Sites[PR9, #12] LinkedIn is the world’s most professional network. It has been working since 5 May, 2005. The number of members in 2012 more than 187 million and it is growing. More than 60% of the members are outside of the USA. Why is it so professional? Because they are focusing on integrating mostly professionals. You may open an account by LinkedIn and import your friends, contacts there at any time. But unlike on other sites it is very difficult to make connections with other people you don’t know. If you want to ask somebody to join you, you have to send an invitation for him/her with designating the level of acquaintance as Friend, Classmate, Colleague or you have to identify yourself somehow. They say: “Only invite people you know well and who know you”. So, it is a difficulty you have to cope with it if you want to be a member.
What is benefit of the membership? You find big companies and individuals, entrepreneurs equally among the members. If your Profile is very good provided with an excellent CV, and you join to one or more groups – sectioned e.g. by profession, interest – you will get the chance for instance to get a better job or an excellent offer. So it is a basic thing on LinkedIn to create a very honest but more than average profile. As a member you can get newsletters with the latest offers as jobs – valid, not fake ones! -, current conversations within your group. Independently of your membership level – whether it is free or paid -, you can have opinion about everything and write it down till you keep the rules. One more thing: Meeting people is named “Connect” here.
If you want to see my profile, just click on the link.

– Flickr.com

Flickr.com - The Best Way To Store And Share Your Pictures - Social Bookmarking Sites[PR9, #56] As they say officially, Flickr is the best way to store, sort, search and share your photos online. Flickr helps you organize that huge mass of photos you have and offers a way for you and your friends and family to tell stories about them. However there is a Free quota – upgrading to Pro member is from $24.95/year -, it will be enough for a very long time unless you want to use Flickr’s enhanced features. Basically you may share your pictures and “import” from other members if it is enabled by the member(s) or not licensed. You should hand in a “Request for license” in this case to Flickr. To be honest, if you want to learn more about Flickr you should begin uploading pictures, videos, etc., joining various groups, finding friends and making friendships. You are always welcome to see my collection.

– MySpace.com

MySpace.com - The Best Place To Listen To Music And Find Friends - Social Bookmarking Sites[PR9, #193] MySpace is the best place where you can listen to music and find your favourite groups or new ones. At the very moment of signing up I was asked about my favourites in connection with music. I was ready to enter because I like music very much. After a while there was a full complation of music chosen from my favorites – edited by MySpace, especially for me – to listen to. I think it was a very kind guesture.
It is very easy to find new friends here, because you may mark anybody as friend without spamming. It is up to him/her/it whether your frienship will be accepted or not. The more friends, the more publicity you will have. Private people, musicians, even whole music groups can be your friends. It is very exciting to be a “friend” of e.g. Vangelis or Depeche Mode. Although it sounds a bit weird, this kind of friendship could be very advantageous if you want to make something business related activity (but keep the rules!). On the other hand don’t forget that its PR9 is an excellent Rank, so MySpace has got huge traffic.
Are curious what kind of music I like? Join me on MySpace.

– StumbleUpon.com

Stumbleupon.com - Stumble And Like Your Favourites - Social Bookmarking Sites[PR8, #151] You may register with your Facebbok or Twitter account, but I suggest registering on the traditional way, because you will need the data in the future. After Logging In you will be offered to follow somebody, or choose interests, open a channel, etc. It is very interesting indeed. As a member you have the chance to rate pages you see so we can get better at recommending the content you’d like. When you Like a page, it also saves it to your profile so you can revisit it later, so be careful what you choose. If you find something great you can share it with your friends. Because you are connected with Facebook and Twitter (it is recommended to do, if not) your friend will get your messages immediately. How to begin with Stumbleupon? First create a list in connection with interests i.e. fabolous places, favourite animals etc., because having the list you can easily fill it with relevant content and can share it with others. You have many possibilities to choose from, only your time and endurance is the limit. You can follow me on Stumbelupon if you want to visit my profile and see how it works.

– Pinterest.com

Pinterest.com - Create PINBoards And Pin Your Favourites - Official Logo - Social Bookmarking Sites[PR7, #38] Pinterest was a very pleasant surprise to me. However everybody speaks about its incredibly growing popularity, at the first visit I was not able to find out what was this site about at all! Pinning. To Pin. What to pin? And I realized – reading its Help and FAQ there and back – the essence of Pinterest. It is useful and amusing in one!
Pinterest is a very correct Social Network Site. If you read the lines about their mission you will know why. They say: “Our goal is to connect everyone in the world through the ‘things’ they find interesting. We think that a favorite book, toy, or recipe can reveal a common link between two people. With millions of new pins added every week, Pinterest is connecting people all over the world based on shared tastes and interests.- Pinterest”. Yes, it is true. But the tools they offer differ a bit from the usual ones.
The essence and sense of the game as follows: “Pin” is a picture. It can be anything from a bug’s picture till a space-shuttle. As you surf on the Internet you’ll visit different places. If you recognize a beautiful picture on the site and you find a PIN It button – or you take with you in your FireFox browser -, pushing this button you’ll PIN the picture and you’ll take it to your pinboard on Pinterest. Pinboard is a set of pins. You can create board on any topic, such as House Of The Rising Sun, Cool Cellphones, Company Of Beautiful Ladies, Fabolous Hills And Mountains, etc. The number of pins you can add to one board is not limited. You can have as many boards as you want and you can create it even at the moment of the Pin. By the rules – Pin Etiquette – you may not change the original destination of the referring link, so be careful if you wanted to. However, it is a great feature if you see its SEO and possible business side. Please feel free to visit my profile here.

It was failed first. Then I recognized that there is a similar Timeline I have met on Facebook. So Bebo allows you to share your life in a special, interactive way. Each time you add something to your profile your timeline will be updated.

We have been through the reviews of some more or less-known sites. What on the Earth has remained yet (if any)?

You would ask me: “Is it necessary to join all Bookmarking Sites? It is very time consuming and tiring!”. Yes, it seems to be a bit boring at the first sight, and it is definitely indeed. But you have to decide what your main aim is. It is depending on the situation whether you want to deal with business, or you want to express your opinion somewhere only, or you are simply interested and want to make friendship with other people.

Notice: Manually – that is visiting the site on your own – you may submit your content (link) to any site or more (if you find ones).
Warning! Always keep the rules and time limits between 2 submission to the same site in order to avoid SPAM or any punishment (blocking your IP, account suspension, lock-out, etc).

3. Using of Automated or Semi-automated submission software

Social Bookmarking Software, Social Bookmarking Tool - Get Backlinks from Social Bookmarking SitesIf you want to get quicker results – however this is definitely not a free way -, you can select from several automated/semi-automated, standalone solutions such as either SENukeXCR, or BookmarkingDemon software which will be able to submit your link to 100+ different social bookmarking sites.
Before starting your campaign, you might want to make a list about the “to be done” tasks. I mean, you’d need to have some necessary data prepared and double-checked such as the exact Title, Meta Description, keywords of the links(s) you are willing to submit. It is also advisable to get familiar with the operational environment and handling of the selected submitter software before beginning any submission process (before pushing the Enter button).

When using these submissions tools, you should also be very careful with selecting the appropriate speed of submission and have to take care in order to avoid duplicate submissions and any punishment.

Depending on your plans – and the available budget -, I suggest you using any of these excellent services. Their “repository” includes many useful Social Bookmarking Sites and this can be good if you are planning e.g. a successful backlinking campaign.

Note: The displayed Google PageRank and Alexa Rank of the sites may vary because of the time-shift between the “published” time of my article and the visitors real “reading” “live” time. Please install a Page Rank Checker and Alexa Toolbar (provided e.g. by Alexa.com or SEO Quake) in order ensure you the chance for refreshing these parameters and get updated data.

I wish you effective and successful work in the future!
