Social Bookmarking Sites are a Great Way to Get Your Web Pages Noticed!
There’s a lot of talk lately about Social Bookmarking. If you are new to the idea, you’ll want to learn what you can about it so you can begin to use it to drive traffic to your website. It is quite powerful when compared to other promotional methods.
The real power of social bookmarking is in the ability to share links, which simply put generates more traffic to your website.
Social Bookmarking sites are essentially libraries that store links that are bookmarked in categories. Visitors use them to find websites relevant to what they need. There are literally millions of people that use Social Bookmark sites. You will want your website to be listed within these Social Bookmarking sites.
You will need to post links to your website from a Social Bookmarking site. Specific keywords are used to place your web pages into categories. The keywords you will use are called TAGS. Your site will then be accessible to those looking for what you have available on your web pages. On some Social Bookmark sites users are encouraged to vote for bookmarks they find most useful and relevant to their search.
Benefits of Social Bookmarking Sites
There are many benefits of Social Bookmarking to make it well worth your time. Benefits include traffic more focused to your target market, faster indexing on search engines, and higher page rankings on search engines.
Traffic targeted to your particular niche can result in much better conversion rates as those visiting your site will most likely be highly interested in what you have to offer. The TAGS you use to describe your contents will help visitors to find your specific pages relevant to their search.
Google Crawls Your Site Faster
The added speed of Social Bookmarking sites will astound you the first time you place your links in them. Web crawlers and spiders search bookmarking sites almost continually, so you will find that they crawl your links very soon after you place them. In some cases it’s an immediate action.
Page ranking is what being found is all about. You can have the best designed website in the world, but it won’t do you any good unless viewers can find it. With a high page ranking you can use affiliate links to monetize your pages or even add new pages and websites that are connected to your original site and their ranking will quickly improve.
It will take some diligence on your part to get all of your pages bookmarked by logging in to the site and adding URLs, descriptions, and keywords or tags. It can be a challenge, but well worth the effort.
