Social Bookmarking – Creating “Search Engine Juice” to Your Site

Social Bookmarking is free advertising for your Internet home business! It’s a way to get one-way backlinks that generates “search engine juice” to your site and this means free organic traffic. Sound good so far?  This was music to my ears!  And, it works!

This is a process and it will take a little work to set-up.  I would not advise trying to do too much too fast. But, this is fantastic way to generate traffic to your website or blog.  Here is a relatively easy way to get started.

SocialMarker.com offers a service that you need to know about. This site will help you spread a link to 48 social bookmarking sites, and it’s a free service. Social Marker acts a distributor for you business and your business links.

They advertise that you can send your links to all 48 sites in less than 15 minutes. That might be true… once you have your membership accounts set-up with these sites.

The reality is that this all takes time. I’ve been using other Social Bookmarking sites and I use only a small percentage of the 48 they list.

There are over 200 Social Bookmarking sites on the Internet. While I will be tracking and probably recommending some others in the future, SocialMarker.com is a great place to get started.

In many ways, when you establish an account with one of their 48 listed sites, it’s a lot like setting up a Twitter or Facebook account. You want to do it correctly. Make it right the first time, so you do not have to go back and later correct it.

You need to complete your profile information, and I highly recommend that you include your picture so that people get to know you. That’s branding you! And, branding you will help your business in the future.

So, take it slow and get it right when you set up these accounts. Let me offer you some recommendations for the top five to join, then you can take it from there.

1. Propellar.com. I’m led to believe that it’s considered an ultimate authority by Yahoo Search. I like the fact that it directly links to Yahoo, so you can invite your Facebook contacts, and a lot of APS members are on Facebook!

2. Diigo.com. This is not Digg.com. This is different. Diigo allows a lot more social interaction. For example, it allows collaboration. In other words, it would allow for us to review one another’s website or blogs. All we need to do is set up a group.

If you are finding success in Digg.com, this is also one of the 48 sites that Social Marker will submit to.

3. Reddit.com. Reddit stories are instantly voted

upon and if liked by the community as a whole, this can drive incredible traffic to your site.

4. Del.icio.us. Don’t worry about typing in that obnoxious URL. You can also access your account via delicious.com. Delicious allows you to easily add sites you like to your personal collection of links (your sites!!!!) and add keywords and tags. Delicious is also owned by Yahoo and is a MUST for your social media and bookmarking strategy.

5. Google Bookmarks. A lot of Internet marketers already have Google accounts. If you have an Adsense account, you have a Google account. If you have a “.gmail” account you have a Google account. If you have an Adwords account, you have a Google account. Don’t overlook this Google feature. Use their “bookmark” feature on all your important links. Like many of the others mentioned, add you keywords/tags that are specific to your link page. …more on this later!!!

As I mentioned earlier, take it slow. Get familiar with these Social Bookmarking (more here) sites. They can work wonders for your business. Like anything else, they are not all the same. They all have unique features that you need to learn about. Plus, there are a whole lot more to come. But, establish your foundation first.

And, start looking for APS member on these sites. Hook up with them. Establish a group. Invite your own networking contacts.

  1. What do you think?

    Hi Rick!
    Thank you very much for your reaction for my comment. Yes! You’re absolutely right, I’m from Dehradun, India. Thank you for your suggestion for joining Acme People Search Forum Free. Yes I’ll certainly do. In a process of searching and knowing more I am trying my best to do the same, though there is not enough time to do this job. I do it in the evenings occassionally and not regularly. I am even unable to know how to set up an auto responding system or leads capture page on my blog for free? So that I can generate leads and put some offers on the net as I have joined a lot of affiliate programs but unable to promote them. If you can help me do this I will be grateful to you. Thanks a lot!

    • Sure… I’d be glad to help with the auto-responder and lead capture. First of all, do you have an auto-responder? All auto-responders have a “form” section. You simply create you form. They usually give the option to capture first name, last name, e-mail address, country or other fields. I usually set it up to capture first name, e-mail address and country. Once you select your options you will be given the HTML code. You simply place this code on your website or blog.

      What type of website or blog do you use?

      If you do not have an auto-responder, I can provide you one free up to 250 subscribers. You can get a copy by following this link: Free Auto-Responder. It’s like anything else in this business. While it may seem difficult at first, it gets much easier once you do it a few times. This auto-responder comes with some excellent training videos, so make sure you take the time to watch them.

      Once you get on the Forum, send me a PM (private message), so I know that you are there. My user name is rick samara. Let me know if you need anything else!

      All the Best,
      Rick

  2. Anita,

    I hope you received some value from the videos you purchased. Some are better than others! But, if you spent you hard earned money on them, you should at least go through them… perhaps you can get something from them.

    I would first advise that you learn how to earn money on the Internet. It does not make any sense to invest in anything until you learn how to do that. You can have the greatest product in the world, but if you don’t know how to market it… you are just wasting your time. And, I don’t think you want to do that!!

    You say that you want to “do part time work.” That is great. Take it slow, and do not spend any money until you know to advertise, market and promote on the Internet. That is, of course, if you want to do “Internet marketing.” If you have friends, family, and co-workers that you can sell a fantastic product to, I provide you some advice there as well. Personally, I like take a product and market it on the Internet.

    If you join ACME People Search, you will have a great opportunity to just start in Internet marketing without spending any money. You can simply complete Step ! and develop affiliate relationships with some top companies. I would highly recommend that you start participating in our Forum. It is totally free, contains a lot of great information on how to market free, and you can get any question answered 24/7/365.

    I hope we can work together!

    Here is my e-mail address: rick@affiliatewebsitereview.com. If you have any questions or need advice, feel free to contact me anytime.

    All the Best,

    Rick

  3. I agree with your strategies, but I am new to this net marketing and want first to know how to promote any offers and how to reply any ads/offers without spending a dime. Because I have been looted previously by some shrewd internet offer makers and now I am not in a position to spend any money untill I learn the basics of selling and earning with some Free Opportunities!

    • Hi Nsharma3,

      Thanks for posting an honest comment on my blog. I could not agree with you more. Anyone involved in Internet marketing needs to first know how to advertise, market and promote any programs and products prior to joining any programs. Unfortunately, I learned this the hard way… as it sounds you have too. I still do a little PPC advertising, but most of business in now generated from free advertising or organic search traffic. It takes a while to learn these practices, but if you truly want to build a business, then you should concentrate on learning this process. As you probably already know, it’s called Search Engine Marketing or Search Engine Optimization. This site is dedicated to making this easy to new Internet marketers. Keep coming back and keep asking questions. I’ll do my very best to help out.

      Here’s a major recommendation. Join this forum. It’s entirely free. Here’s the link: ACME People Search Forum. It’s a great place to learn “how to earn” without spending money. I noticed you are from India. I have a couple of very good and highly talented people that I work with on the forum: Srinath and Khandrazar (Somesh). I often speak with Somesh via Skype. This is a great community.

      Stay in Touch,

      Rick Samara
