Social bookmarking websites have been around for a while now however many have changed and some just are not as effective as others. If your a blogger social bookmarking has changed drastically for you but here is my top 7 list of social bookmarking sites that have a high PR value.
What are social bookmarking sites ?
Social bookmarking websites are sites which users share their sites, articles, blog posts, images, videos and other content and allow for social interaction and sharing.
Advantages of using sites like this are to gain more exposure for your business and what it offers, driving visitors to your site and brand awareness.
Posting quality content to these networks also provides a boost to rankings in search engines. Honestly the more places where your brand and content fits the better as it might rank on search engines.
Have products your company produces you want to show off? Digital or Physical this is a great place to share them with the world. Getting more people to like and share you products can drastically increase revenues and traffic.
Maybe the most misunderstood social network but once you learn it trust me the benefits will be clear to see. With over 332 million members and over 38% checking the site daily this is massive exposure for your business. Consider starting a group and joining a few in related topics to fuel your businesses exposure.
When your site gets stumbled then expect a stampede of traffic! I love this site and with recent changes to the UI (User interface) this has become one of my all time favorites. This site also boasts a powerful PR 8 rating.
Sort of like StumbleUpon but not as well used, at least not yet. Current work is going into the site to rebuild it and make it even more responsive. Out of what is left of these decade old social bookmarking sites this one stands out.
Be careful with this one its tricky but very powerful. Reddit members hate when you share your own content so instead just add it on your blog post or content and allow someone else to start the share. Have a popular topic then reddit users will love to stop by leave their comments and dive into what you have to offer. Very interactive community so treat it with respect when posting or quickly get banned and taunted! (its a rough world out there)
While many of the old school bookmarking sites are either dead or closed down these remain at the top and well worth the time invested in them.
With anything in blogging it takes time but continued effort and building a social engagement on these types of sites will stick you out above the rest of bloggers who don’t.
