    Default How often do you social bookmark?

    How often do you submit pages of your site to sites such as reddit, delicious, digg, furl?

    Have been doing it a little more lately across all sorts of websites that we are marketing. The interesting thing about social media is that you really have to work at it to make it a viable marketing tool. Just submitting a site for the free link is something I guess, but there is a real chance to get quality traffic from places like Facebook, Digg, etc. It's all in how you approach it, and should be a part of an online marketing strategy.

    Webber how does social bookmarking compare to blogging for seo purposes?
    I heard that blogging is more powerful. Is this true?

    I social bookmark maybe once a month or so. A couple of us did a stumbleupon experiment that yielded short term medium traffic at best (not targeted thus no conversions).

    Organic search still is giving laser targeted traffic, that I think in most circumstances would be hard to obtain from social bookmarking sites like facebook. or am I missing something?

    I try to bookmark every blog post and page I create.

    Cannot say I have seen great results, although I do see backlinks to the pages. It is a long term strategy that I am following.

    I use a great service from OnlyWire.com, where they bookmark your page in all the major providers. Saves a whole heap of time..

    I think it is very useful to have links in Social Networks like Facebook, Digg etc., but only when you have spend some time in writing something interesting, and that is time consuming. And then I start thinking, shouldn't I rather spend some time on my site? And so far I have decided in favour of spending time on my site.

    I have been bookmarking all blogs and depending on the content it works well. Big boost in traffic for some entries, so so for others.

    I am so sick of the social networks i could cry..........There's too many of them now, just too many. Nowwwww not only do yu have to take care of YOUR forum, and maybe try and go say some hellos to the other 5 million forums now, cause there's so many forums, but nowwwwwwww u have to go the 5000 social networks and maybe post or change banners or something on ur page, and throw pies and buy stuff thats stupid to me anyway.
    It's the same with everything today, if one thing is good ie Myspace...they innondate with others like it or try to make money with the same sort of thing.
    My husband does websites and I can't tell u how many people want to do a site like facebook, and of course thay want to pay maybe 50 bucks for it.......hahaha, and I'm not lying.........it's true.
    Sorry to be so nasty about it but those are my thoughts.
    I've been doing online gambling, poker, and foruming for over 11 years now and have seen so many changes I can't tell u.

    Welcome mooley! It's nice to see your here.

    I only have a facebook. I believe it could be a valuable webmaster tool to drive traffic. The trick is finding the time it requires. I don't feel that you can have success without putting a considerable amount of time in it. You are right mooley, they are adding new ones and I can't even keep up with the facebook.

    Default The benefits are Mixed

    Well, we have had a pretty mixed response fro our Web 2.0 activity so far. The social bookmarking thing scene has become better for us over a sustained time period.
    We've been at it for over 6 months now, and doing everything mostly inhouse. It's surely picking up, and traffic is gaining, albeit slowly.
    Our flash games application on facebook is picking up great response and review so far!

    Occationally only. Mostly because of lack of time. Would probably do it more often otherwise.

    5 months ago I registered at maybe 50 bookmarking sites and added my sites. Checking my backlinks now I see that only a handful have been indexed as backlinks by Google. Seems a lot of effort for little gain? Is it really worth the effort to get better rankings?

    I don't at all, and from what I can see, others don't either. At the end of the day, I suspect that nobody really cares.
