How Social Bookmarking Can Generate Traffic For Your Blog

Social bookmarking is a method for internet users to save articles for themselves and to share them with others. If you own a blog, you should definitely utilize the power of social bookmarking.

Social bookmarking sites (e.g. Digg, StumbleUpon) store lists of internet resources that users have found useful by category, tags or randomly. These bookmarked sites and pages can be shared with other people who have similar interests.

These links can also be organized by user defined keywords or tags (called folksonomy). Resources can be rated by users, include email links, have comments added, be sorted by popularity and algorithms that draw inferences from other keyword references and participate in automated notification systems.

Social bookmarking links can also be included in your press section and press releases.

There are many social bookmarking services which allow users to add web pages to their bookmark list.

As a blogger, you benefit from having someone add a page from your site to their social bookmark list. Your web page will become searchable in the entire bookmark directory and is available to all members of the service. People will also be inclined to share it with others. This is a great way to build your blog’s audience and increase exposure.

Just by adding a special link to your blog posts, your visitors can add a page from your website to their social bookmark list. There are now over fifty different services available to manage social bookmarks.

On, we use the ShareThis widget for social bookmarking, which you can see at the bottom of this article.
