Does social bookmarking actually help with SEO?
I've heard a lot about social bookmarking and social bookmarking services. Does social bookmarking actually help in terms of SEO, or is it a big myth?
Pffffft. Lots of people jump on that bandwagon, but unless you do it right, it can be just a waste of time.
Most social bookmarking sites are nofollow (no Google love through the links) and full of people spamming their own content. Unless you're the 1 in a million that gets decent shares from what you post there, you're more likely to get banned from spam , or simply waste time.
