1. What is Social Bookmarking?
Social Bookmarking is one of the Off-Page SEO techniques. On Social Bookmarking websites, you can share your site or blog content like images, articles, videos and webpage links with other audience to get the direct exposure & appreciation. This appreciation can be in the form of comments, likes, and shares. It will generate traffic for your blog.
Now the question comes in mind How Google ranks your blog by just sharing content or links of the websites?
When you share a link in quality Social Bookmarking sites, search engines get a signal that community audience of these sites is liking your posts then automatically Google algorithms take your site to a higher rank in search results.
2. How to do Social Bookmarking?
It is a very simple process. First, you have to choose the High PR bookmarking site. I’m choosing Mix
Let me show you how you can do this.
Step 1. Create an account on mix.com. Previously it was known as Stumbleupon.
You can create an account on mix.com using Gmail, Facebook or Twitter. I am going to use my Facebook account.
After signing in, you will see the home screen of mix.com.
Step 2. For sharing your blog post, Click on the plus icon from the top right of the screen and then this popup will appear. Now you just need to enter your blog post URL here and that’s it.
Congratulations, You have successfully bookmarked your blog post.
Note: Every website has a different process of submitting the website links.
3. Benefits of Social Bookmarking
Everybody wants to rank well in search engines for their blog posts. It was my aim too. In my early days of blogging, I managed to rank on the First page of Google just by doing Bookmarking on few sites like Mix & Reddit.
I was a bit surprised by the power of Social Bookmarking. In less than 2 weeks there was a tremendous improvement in my blog ranking as well as CTR (Click through Rate).
Increase in Traffic:
Social Bookmarking is a very good source to drive traffic to your blog. When your blog posts get clicks, likes, shares & comments then these bookmarking sites show your posts in trending or popular posts and from these sites, you gain a lot of traffic.
More Traffic = More Leads
Branding & Subscriptions
Social Bookmarking helps you to build your brand & reputation. When you get more votes or likes by community people you automatically gain targeted traffic & more traffic always leads to more subscriber base. People fill their emails in forms so that they can get the latest updates from your blog. These subscribers are assets for you.
Good effect on SEO
As I have already mentioned that Social Bookmarking is one of the SEO Techniques which has a very good impact on SEO. It is basically the safest way to build quality backlinks. Most of the Bookmarking sites allow Dofollow link so you can really gain a quality link from these sites.
Social Bookmarking index links very fast in Google & other search engines. So if you are having enough backlinks pointing to your site then you gain quality backlinks quickly.
