OK, here is the deal - only those who bought the software called BookMarkingDemon can take part in this thread. Well, not exactly, of course, but it does not make any sense for those who do bookmarks manually - cause it will take a lot of time. If anyone wants to consider joining the club - here is my affiliate link
<snipped-come on, Misha, of course no affiliate links in the forums!> (Maddie, please delete it if you think I gone overboard with self-promotion)
Those who want to participate have to compile the links they want others to bookmark into .txt file, host this file somewhere, and place the link to it here. Others load the file into their software and start bookmarking
Every line of the file should be of the following format:
like this one:
"http://ezinearticles.com/?Six-Random-Gas-Saving-Tips&id=1163859","Six Random Gas Saving Tips","gas,fuel,saving,savers,mileage",""
Now, it's not THAT easy unfortunately. Since such a method is NOT a bright white hat, rather a gray one, we have to fly under radar to avoid being penalized by search engines or banned by bookmarking sites. This makes the things a little bit more complex.
First, a single file should not have too many lines in it. I would say 5 is the good maximum number.
Second, you should not process more than a single file in one run.
Third, you should not process more than a couple of files during a single day, and you have to run them several hours apart.
Fourth, you are not obliged to run every file. In fact, you should not run every file. Invent your own system to pick the files you run.
Fifth, don't forget to bookmark your own links, too
Rules are open for discussion
Misha - this looks very promising. I will have to read when I am not on pain meds for my shoulder... LOL (i.e. tomorrow). Thanks for posting/sharing and I hope it is still here tomorrow. Steph
The approach I was told to take with the legit social sites was to mix 1 of my links with 5 or so legit sites e.g. hubpages/squidoo/whatever I only use 1 login per a run but I do quit a long list of links (last 1 ran for 24 hours ROTFL)
The easiest way to get the correct format is to add some urls and save as XML then open up the XML file in notepad and add other links in the same format
Keeping the files posted here to a max of 5 lines is a good idea because then for each file u add one link of your own!
When Iget home I will put together some files!
OK, I got a better idea. Screw bookmark demon!
Most of us bookmark to delicious among other sites. Delicious has backup/restore or export/import feature. When you backup/export, you create a special format file on your local hard drive that holds all your bookmarks. You can later restore it to your account - or TO ANY OTHER ACCOUNT. More, most of other bookmarking sites take files in this format, too!
That means you don't have to buy this fairly expensive piece of software to participate in bookmarks exchange! Just to give it a start, here is my current delicious backup: http://www.funandsafedriving.com/files/ … Misha.html . Right click on it, download, and add to your bookmarks if you wish. I will do the same for you!
To get to import/export you need to choose settings, and then you'll see it under bookmarks header.
That Site disabled my account and I have not yet forgiven them. Bastards.
Want to buy a "I had my delicious account banned" T shirt?
Most of other social bookmarking sites take those files, too. Get busy
Done, this is mine:

Sorry I didn't respond, I had no idea what you were talking about so I had to work out what to do lol
As you may have guessed, I don't do a lot of this sort of stuff. It gets in the way of the writing
Mark, I just loaded yours.
It appears there is one more step to this, though.
In delicious, when bookmarks are loaded, they are marked private by default - so I had to go through every single one of them and mark them shared. It's a bit of work to do - but it does not make any sense without it. I guess this is one of their methods of spam defense
Me, a spammer?
Good grief! I have just looked at yours. You have 41 pages of them. Can't you do them all at the same time? lol
I will go through them as I get the chance.
So, is this mean it's not good to do it? I meant it's too much time consuming?
It's not that it doesn't sound wonderful, Misha....I just don't have a clue what you're talking about. I'm challenged in these sorts of areas.
Sorry I am a bit slow at understanding too so cannot help you
I am sorry if I misspelled your name this time. It has another meaning in Arabic. I hope you are not offended.
Come on SunSeven, I know you are a nice creature And you got me curious - what is the meaning you mentioned?
Come on my cuddly bear, I know you have already done the search. I am sure you can find it out by yourself.
Once again, I am sorry.
Misha, if you're reading this: Is BM compatible with MAC? I don't think it is but I just have to ask!
I guess no one here know if Bookmarking Demon is compatible with MAC huh?
Since I never ever used Mac, I have no idea. On the site you have the following text:
Windows XP and Microsoft .Net Framework v3.0
You can download framework from here
BMD does not work on 64 bit OS!
Not all Vista machines are fully compatible with BMD.
Which does not make me too optimistic about working on Mac possibility. I did not find their helpdesk (my main computer is down and I don't have access to the soft right now), so the only other option I can point you to is developer's blog - http://edwinsoft.com/. Try to post a comment there, you may get an authoritative response.
