Hi Y’all! So….. today my head is spinning with topics I could blog about. But what to blog about??? Well, I just love the topic of social bookmarking! I love researching and I really love that there is so much great information out there.
Social Bookmarking has evolved a lot over the last few years and it IS a part of Google’s algorithms which calculate Page Rank and since it’s such a relevant topic, I wanted to share my thoughts on a really great Social Bookmarking Service that I use.
Many of you know that social bookmarking used to be very cumbersome. You used to have to bookmark webpages manually!!! You can still do this of course and there are actually some services that have you do that if you can believe it…
With all we have to do today to create a blog with useful content, utilize strategies to get quality back links, create capture pages so we can create a relationship with people, and so on, I find it’s a constant exercise in managing my time….
I’m going to assume that if you are reading this, you know how important it is to incorporate Social Bookmarking into your toolset for creating backlinks. If you are new and want a really great read on this, check out this post by my mentor, Rob Fore.
My personal favorite right now is SocialADR and here’s why. It is SO easy to set up. You submit whatever url’s you want bookmarked, tweeted, google +’d, etc., and real people bookmark, tweet, google+ and whatever else to your page! AND, pinging is done too. And hey, if you’re anything like me, when I hear the words ‘It’s so easy’… I think a) yeah, right OR b) it probably doesn’t do anything.
Nothing could be further from the truth here – it works exactly as advertised. It is totally impossible not to like this service! If you have not utilized a Social Bookmarking Service yet, you will love this. If you are experienced and using some form of Social Bookmarking but want to add more or replace what you’re doing, here is what I will promise you. It will NOT take up a ton of your valuable time.
SocialADR is a web-based service and there is a monthly fee to use it. It is VERY affordable and you can utilize it from any computer, anywhere. It is fully automatic. Links drip in at all times of the day because they are NATURAL and provided by real people from trusted sites. They pride themselves on quality links that stick! For all these reasons, SocialADR is a hot social bookmarking service!
OK. I was going to keep this post short and just give you my take on SocialADR, BUT, I really have to tell you about this brand-new Social Bookmarking Service.
This service is brought to you by the creators of Unique Article Wizard. If you are not familiar with Unique Article Wizard, get a brief overview here. And since UAW is a leading article marketing and backlink building service, I think that classifies the Social Exchange Wizard as a hot social bookmarking service!
The Social Exchange Wizard comes free with your UAW membership and is an internal community. You are given a certain # of seeds in your account. You can assign seeds to promote a given url. For example you can assign 100 seeds to a blog post and every time someone in the community tweets it, you give them 10 seeds.
So by giving away seeds to people, you can promote your url with a social signal and by liking, sharing, tweeting someone else’s url, you harvest seeds. And if you are running a really big campaign, you can purchase additional seeds!
You can restrict the signal to your url’s to come from those in the same category as you. The idea is to increase your credibility, gain social influence and trust. Not to mention there are some really great people in there with a lot of knowledge! Remember, you become most like those you most closely associate.
Currently supported Social Networks in the Social Exchange Wizard are Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and YouTube.
If you need to promote a blog and don’t currently have Unique Article Wizard, there really is no excuse anymore since your membership also has a social bookmarking service included!
Live your Best Life!
