If You Are Not Social Bookmarking, You're Not Social Media Marketing

"If You Are Not Social Bookmarking, You're Not Social Media Marketing"

I have atended over 50 seminars, workshops, teleseminars and webinars about Social Media Marketing. Only 2 of them mentioned Social Bookmarking. This reaffirms that there are many so-called "Social Media Marketing Experts" who have no idea what they are talking about!

Social Bookmarking must be an integral part of your social media marketing strategy, if you want to see real results. Social Bookmarking serves multiple purposes; first, it can create real "dofollow" backlinks to your web site. Backlinks are important in increasing your rankings on Google and other search engines.

Second, Social Bookmarking can get you found on Google, Yahoo and Bing because... well, Google won't tell us why, but you will find bookmarked links for your website, YouTube video, blog and other links on Google results. As Nike says, "Just Do It". You will see the results in search engine searches.

Which Social Bookmarks should you use? I recommend, in order of importance, Propeller, Technorati, Digg, StumbleUpon, Delicious and Reddit. Propeller shows up often in search results on Google.

What should you bookmark? Bookmark as much as possible all of your other "Viral" accounts. For example, bookmark your video from your own channel (account). Bookmark your Blog, especially on (make sure that you have "claimed" your blog on Technorati). This is a secret - bookmark your Facebook account and your Twitter account. Get the RSS from Twitter on the RSS icon.

Last but not least, bookmark other people's stuff. If you like an article on someone else's blog, bookmark it on your accounts. Found interesting web sites while searching your subject matter? Bookmark it! You must open accounts in these Social Bookmarking sites in order to bookmark and see results.

Bookmark as often and as much as possible. The more you bookmark, the greater your results! Use to make it easier and faster.

Start Social Bookmarking today! Start seeing results today!
