Making Social Media Bookmarking A Priority For SEO

By: Laura Thornquist

Social media bookmarking is perhaps one of the least talked about SEO generators, but is a very effective tool.á It's one of the newer techniques to give your search ranking a little bit of a boost and is a must-have as part of your search engine optimization strategy.
It is used for precisely what it states, bookmarking, where you bookmark anything that you like to store, search and manage. The difference here is you do it socially online. You categorize the sites through different identifying "tags" that you create or the bookmarking site suggests based on other users tags. You can bookmark and categorize however you like, and then share it with other users on the website.áá
By saving this content on a social site, it can increase SEO ranking in a relevant and efficient manner.á Social media bookmarking makes it easier to take content pages, blogs and websites and back-link them to multiple social sites. Here's how it works.á The value of social sites is their page rank.á The back-link will increase your ranking.á Sites that have a high ranking get a lot of recognition by search engine crawlers.á Creating a back-link increases your sites importance.
Social bookmarking also opens up your information and stories to a whole new network of people who might not have otherwise found you.á Many site selectors have also found social bookmarking sites an important time-saving tool as they too have a hard time finding and keeping track of relevant information.
Some of my favorites include, Digg, Technorati, Reddit,, StumbleUpon, the list goes on.á Hope this effective tool motivates you to bookmark away!
