How to Build Social Bookmarking Backlinks

One of the ways to build backlinks to your small business website is to use social bookmarks. Let me use a real-world example to help you better understand the concept of social bookmarking. When you read a book and want to remember the last page you were on, you place a bookmark on that page. In the same way you can bookmark your website pages on social bookmarking sites.

Social bookmarking sites used to be valued by Google but due to their excessive use by internet marketers, their ranking power has significantly reduced. However they are still a good way to get a large number of backlinks and to improve your backlink diversity.

Examples of social bookmarking sites include:

  • Digg
  • Technorati
  • Reddit
  • Slashdot
  • Tagza
  • Newsvine
  • Connotea
  • Sphinn
  • Fark
  • Wsik
  • LinksMarker
  • Blinklist

You can create social bookmarks either:

  • Manually- this is a time consuming process as you would have to go to each bookmarking site, register and fill in the backlinking information. If you want to understand who the whole social bookmarking concept works, I would recommend you use this initially before outsourcing.
  • Using Automated Tools- this is a better option considering the relatively low value of social bookmarks and the large number of sites. Some free social bookmarking tools include Social Marker and Onlywire.

In either case, it’s best to outsource the process to someone who can create all your accounts for you and submit the links either manually or using the automated tools. You can use outsourcing sites like Odesk, Elance and Fiverr.

To create a social bookmark backlink, remember to enter the URL of the page you are bookmarking and to use the keyword in the Title field as this will become the clickable hyperlink of the URL.
