Janelle (Social Bookmarking Software - FREE Tool)

Actually, Social Bookmarking can be also used as a great marketing tool. It allows u to get quality backlink and free web traffic. However, it is important not to submit too often to the same site within the same day. Otherwise, u can get banned by the bookmarking sites as they may think that u are spamming.

OnlyWire dot com and GetBookmark dot com are 2 very handy tool (free of charge). They each allows u to submit to about 15+ bookmarking sites all at one go. But, u must first create your account with each bookmarking site. This can be quite tedious and boring. The other 2 drawbacks are the sites listed are quite limited (some in the list are not even working) and it does not allow u to use keyword phrase as tag.

For those who are seriously looking at tapping the power of web 2.0 social bookmarking sites to generate good traffic and back links, u may want to do as what I have done => invest in software to automate the job. The one I am using right now is pretty neat. It has more sites listed compared to OnlyWire and it can create accounts for u automatically. It also accepts keyword phrase as tag and let u create multiple profiles so that u do not leave too much footprint on the net in case u are accused of spamming. The best part I like about it is that the software gets updated almost every single month to keep in pace with the latest development of some of the bookmarking sites.

There's something new about this?

I appreciate "Portals and KM".
That can become past tense.

"Yet another social bookmarking site" is legitimate editorial comment. Not only legitimate ... the absence of same erodes your credibility.

Ben - you are certainly right about the increasing number of social bookmarking tools. There are too many to keep up with. I am aware of many but not do not keep up with all of them, especially the consumer web ones. My statement was simply a quick first impression because this one came to my attention and not a comprehensive endorsement. It did find it easier than thel ast time I used del.ico.us and I will stand by that but that is the only comparison I made. Many of the ones for business behind the firewall are far more robust than this on and I have written about them here. Thanks for your comment and keeping me clear. Bill

Social bookmarking submission has developed into a powerful tool for SEO experts. It involves linking sites within the various social networking websites, blog sites and content centric sites like Digg. Considered a better alternative to submitting a website on blogs, manual social bookmarking is a simple, convenient and hassle-free way of making sure that your site is noticed and marketed in the right circle.
