What if I told you there is a way to get traffic to your site – without building one way links to your site – without submitting articles to directories – without submitting to directories – without using pay per click – without search engine optimization – without relying on the big bad search engines?
In fact, this powerful new technique has a short learning curve and can send visitors to your site almost instantly!
No this isn’t a myth or some fantasy, but an exciting new way of driving traffic to your Website called “Social Bookmarking”
WHAT IS SOCIAL BOOKMARKING?
To put it simply, social bookmarking is a collection of Websites indexed by humans. Unlike the search engines which rely on complicated algorithms to index relevant Websites for each topic, each site has been “bookmarked” by a human who found it interesting or helpful.
Today there are hundreds, if not thousands of these bookmarking services available. Which means more opportunities for you to get your Website noticed! To better understand this whole concept, take a moment to visit Del.icio.us – del.icio.us one of the most popular social bookmarking communities online.
HOW IT WORKS
A visitor will sign up for a new account, then start to bookmark his or her favorite sites by using “tags” (think of them like keywords). For example, if someone finds your site on muscle cars and finds it useful, they will then bookmark it on Del.icio.us using the tags “classic cars, street rods, hot rods” etc.
The more people who bookmark your site on each social bookmarking site, the higher your site will climb in the rankings for that particular service. If you visit Del.icio.us and do a search on “gardening”, you will see that the top ranked sites have been bookmarked the most.
This in a nutshell is the basics of social bookmarking.
HOW TO GENERATE TRAFFIC THROUGH SOCIAL BOOKMARKING
The beauty of social bookmarking is that there are several ways to generate traffic to your Website, both directly and indirectly. The goal is to get as many people as possible to bookmark your Website and content pages. Savvy marketers are now placing simple but effective bookmarking scripts on their Websites to boost their rankings. These scripts allow their visitor to automatically bookmark their sites with the most popular services.
