How to do social bookmarking?

All SEO guys are doing social bookmarking. But do you know how to do it effectively?

All top social bookmarking sites for SEO are not the same. Before starting to submit the blog posts on websites, you have to understand their rules and regulations. Few high PR social bookmarking websites like reddit.com, bizsugar.com are very sticky in approval and spamming is strictly not allowed.

For these types of social sharing sites, you have to be more social and have to try building your profile by submitting high authority blog posts of other websites or you can comment on others’ posts, re-share and upvote. To get more benefits out of this, create innovative title, creative description, add target keywords in tags or keyword field and most important thing is that you have to choose category wisely.

Hope you have understood – what is social bookmarking? Why everyone should do bookmarking? And how to do it? So let’s start with the top high pr social bookmarking sites list.

  1. Reddit : Reddit is one of my favorite bookmarking websites. It’s not easy to submit your blog post on reddit. You need to upvote and re-submit others’ reddit posts – it will improve your reddit karmas. Once you have sufficient karmas, you can submit your blog posts easily, read subreddit’s rules before posting on it. Meanwhile, try to add few posts of famous websites or add current news related posts so that people comment or upvote your posts.
  2. Mix (formerly Stumbleupon) : Mix is a new content discovery platform that incorporates pretty much everything that Stumbleupon had. It allows people to find, collect and share content they like. To submit blog post on it, you need to first create an account by registering via your Google, Facebook or Twitter account.  With iOS share menu, you can submit posts from any iOS app. Follow the same steps that you would take to add a page to a Collection. One can also submit posts from within the app with the + icon in the home screen. Paste the URL you wish to submit and tap Post. Mix is for healthy sharing of information, so do not spam or request for Collections’ exchanges, follows or/and comments. Also, take care not to insert your business name, URL or address in comments.
  3. Bizsugar : Bizsugar is the toughest website to publish your blog post on. You need to be very careful while submitting blog post on bizsugar.
    • Submit reputed and high authority website’s post in relevant category.
    • Upvote and comment on others’ published posts.
    • Once your profile is strong enough, try to submit your blog post.
    • Write meaningful description, creative title and choose appropriate category.
  4. Scoop.it : Scoop.it is one of the best places of content curation and content marketing. Here you can bookmark your blog post or can create a complete article with backlinks to your blog. I have tested both of them. It has premium and free plans. You can use both as per your requirement. Premium plan has few extra features. As its DA and Alexa rankings are high, so it’s extremely good for building backlinks.
    • You can manage multiple topics in a single account.
    • You can build community.
    • Share, like and comment on other’s posts.
    • Write catchy headings with targeted keywords.
    • Add images in your scoop article.
  5. Pinterest : Pinterest is not only a bookmarking website, but it is the most popular graphical content distribution social media website. Here, you can discover content on any topic and most of the content will be in graphic format. And best part of it is that anyone can easily use Pinterest.

    After creating an account in Pinterest, you need to follow few categories. Choose wisely as you will get their pins. Before adding a pin, you need to create a board with keyword rich board title, description and choose the most relevant category. You can invite others to pin on your board.Find related pin boards and join them. Here, you can’t join directly, invitation is needed to post on group board. For invitation, you are supposed to follow admin of that group, repin his/ her pins and wait for him to notice you or you can also send him a personal request message. Don’t promote your blog post in groups all the times, try to be social!

Guys! Pinterest has good source of traffic for those who have rich graphical content like themes, designs & infographics. I got huge response from Pinterest for www.znetlive.com.
