Social Bookmarking

Using social bookmarking can provide an effective way to increase traffic levels to your websites. Each day, thousands of people view top bookmarked pages so if you have just recently launched a website then be sure to get it bookmarked on the major social bookmarking sites like the ones listed below:

If your site is truly unique and useful then it can easily gain positive votes in the bookmarking sites which can propel your site's bookmarked pages to the front page thus bringing even more free traffic. The challenge with new sites is that the search engines do not tend to rank them very well so using social bookmarking is one way to get free traffic. This is also an effective way to increase link popularity which can help the ranking of your website down the road since you are getting one way back links from authority sites.

Most social bookmarking sites also allow you to have a personal profile with a link back to any sites you own. Thus maintaining good accounts with useful bookmarks can help to increase the popularity of your profile and generate more traffic to your sites as people learn more about you since they like the useful bookmarks you save on a regular basis. It is best to not rely on social bookmarking alone to increase the popularity of your website but use it as part of an overall strategy to increase your online profits.
