Social bookmarking is an effective and very cost-effective part of your SEO process. Your website is ‘bookmarked’ on independent websites such as Digg, Reddit and del.icio.us. This increases awareness, generates traffic and provides good quality links to your website.
Setting up a social bookmarking campaign takes time. You must research the relevant sites and set up accounts with each one. The correct keywords must be used when tagging your site and appealing titles written to create interest.

Quite simply, social bookmarking is a way of tagging or storing a website address, so you can find it later.
You might be familiar with the bookmarking facility in your web browser (e.g. Firefox, Internet Explorer). You store the website URL using the bookmarking tool, so when you want to refer to that site again, you go to your bookmarks and open the site. This type of bookmarking is private – you can only access the links from the PC where they were stored. And you can’t share them with other people.
Social bookmarking works in exactly the same way, except the website URL is stored on an independent website. You can access your social bookmarks from any computer or device with an internet connection. Social bookmarks can be shared and accessed by other people.
Like social media, social bookmarking sites allow like-minded people to communicate with each other. They recommend sites, increasing credibility and brand awareness. As people add your website to their own social bookmarking accounts, so your reputation grows.
Social bookmarking helps your SEO by providing backlinks to your website. Different pages of your site can be tagged on the social bookmarking site, increasing the number of valuable deep links.
As your social bookmarks grow, so does the perceived authority of your website, and that’s good news for your SEO campaign.
