Social Bookmarking Still Helps?

Discussion in 'Link Development' started by Syed Ahsn, Apr 29, 2017.

    Hi everybody, I just want to ask about the importance of social bookmarking in 2017? There is no doubt in it that the High PR websites are very fruitful for every kind of business. But what about the other websites which have low DA or PA? Do they help in getting traffic onto your website or in SEO? And also I want to ask if you submit the same URL twice or thrice on the same website? Does it affect the ranking or the authority of your website?

    Social bookmarking is now considered a very traditional way of promoting a website. But if used properly it still can be very effective. So what is social bookmarking? It is ideally just a way to organize, search, store and manage the bookmarks of different web pages.

    It is normal for users to save links to various web pages that they like and want to share. And for this, they use the bookmarking site to store such links. Usually, these bookmarks are public and anyone can view them. Some examples of such bookmarking sites include digg.com and del.icio.us.

    Social Bookmarking Listing Can Attract Traffic

    Social bookmarking can help improve traffic to your website. Sites such as mentioned above give you an opportunity to attract lots of traffic to the site. Research suggests that these websites offer best types of visitors in the form of viral traffic.

    Visitors reaching your site through bookmarking sites generally visit because your website appeared during their search for a particular topic they were looking for. It is very important that you choose the right strategy for bookmarking the sites and also pick up the exact sites that allow such practices.

    Because there are certain bookmarking sites that also mark your links to other websites as ‘nofollow.’ If such a thing happens the search engines stop following these links and you will not be able to get any benefit.

    Search Engines List Bookmarking Sites

    Search engines are known to list results that come from bookmarking sites. Hence if the links to your site are bookmarked, they have the maximum probability of showing up in the search results.

    It is quite possible that people who are used to bookmarking may mark more than one bookmarking site increasing your chances of promoting your website.

    Add Social Bookmarking Buttons

    Many websites have social bookmarking buttons to their website. With a social bookmark links to the website or blog, it becomes easier for the readers to share and save your content. So, others can easily find it.

    And what if I submit the same website twice or thrice on the same social bookmarking website with the same title or description?

    one such link per week or per month is ok, but if you will get 100 such social bookmarking links in one day - it will penalize you.

    What do you mean by still works?

    If you are trying to generate direct traffic from social networks like Facebook and Twitter, then yes it still works. IME the conversion from that source of traffic is awful.

    If you mean does it still work to gain Facebook likes and shares etc... still results in higher Google rankings, you've been reading about SEO myths. Social network activity has never been linked to direct SEO benefit: Google ignores Facebook likes/shares and Twitter Tweets etc... For starters a significant amount of social network activity isn't even available to Google to use as a ranking factor and all of the backlinks are nofollow and Google ignores nofollow links.

    As per my experience, Reddit is the best SB website that you can get the good traffic as well as link too. I have submitted my blogpost on Reddit many times and got good traffic as well. But you must careful about reddit terms/policy.

    One of the things that websites usually struggle about is the type of website traffic that they are receiving. Any website that is totally dependent on one type of website traffic source faces a continuous threat of getting extinct. If you are entirely depending on social media traffic, you never know the type of problems you would land yourself into once the social media networks you are dependent on change their ranking algorithms. A website entirely dependent on PPC, would see its traffic going down immediately, as soon as they stop spending the money. Same is true for websites which are doing SEO. Therefore, a website that has diversified its sources of information would find great chances of surviving the competition.

    I have never found social marketing very useful, and it will not be useful unless you had mass followers.
    however, google may judge your site based on social media factors. If you end up with with high profile
    links, but you are not being talked about on social media, then this could be a red flag indication to google...

    Even if you think social media is worthless, then do it in order to show google you are being talked about...
    you can not go from zero to hero in just a few days, and it is rare for a site to go zero to hero, but it does
    happen. If for no other reason, do social marketing as a startup to show google you are active....

    Even though social media has zero SEO advantages; Social media maybe included in the 100s of
    factors that google uses in order to determine if you deserve to be online. If you have a new site, then
    it may be a red flag to get high profile links, and google does not see any social signals leading to your site.

    at the very least, do some social marketing.
    Does not mean you have to go deep into social marketing....
    just show google that you are active....

    If you are talking about bookmark links, then they are for the most
    part worthless, however, having a few bookmark backlinks may not
    hurt you as long as it is part of your link portfolio, and the same goes
    for directories, they are worthless on their own, but would not hurt if
    you had a few directory backlinks; just do not let anyone type of backlink
    consume your overall link profile, and you should be fine.

    I know some people refuse to get no-follow links, which is a mistake...
    google wants to see a diversity in your backlink profile, so if you are
    only getting do-follow links, then this could be seen as a red flag, and
    would not look very natural as your backlinks should have diversity.

    ie: dofollow, nofollow, niche, non-niche, etc....
    It simply would not be natural for a site to get niche and dofollow
    links all the time, but the site is not getting any other type of backlinks....

    It may or may not; This really depends on the authority of the site
    you plan to send spam links too. It maybe easier to take out newer
    sites, however, sites with authority and trusted by google will be difficult,
    and if the owner is monitoring for spam links, and disavows them, then
    your spam efforts may not make much difference anyways...

    I agree with you. Social Bookmarking may not help directly but with great followers base it can work great in order to get proper brand awareness.

    But I don't think that Google wants to see diversification in our link profiles. As long as the links are relevant and natural I don't think that there is a problem.

    what is really "natural" anymore?

    Every site out there is getting backlinks anyway they can....
    If you were to wait in order to actually get "natural" backlinks,
    then you maybe waiting for years, and it very well may take years....

    I guarantee you the competition is not sitting on their ass waiting
    for "natural" backlinks to come about; they are out there cutting
    throats and kicking ass in order to get to the next level....

    diversity is key; proceed however you wish....

    Hi,
    Still bookmarking matters, but only change is that now just to do bookmark is not enough, we should work for our account regularly. Like we should connect others member so that they also like and share our post and vice versa...
    Hope this is ok for all.
