    Would anyone be willing to share the top 5 sites you for bookmarking to increase hub exposure?

    I personally don't bookmark. Here's why:

    *Many bookmarking sites will ban domains for a limited amount of time if there are too many links. For instance if 300 members are placing hub links on there, it will be seen as spam.
    *Bookmarking sites are for promoting interesting things you find, not your own work. Promoting too much of your own work can lead to having your account banned.
    *Bookmarking links are usually nofollow which means they have no influence on your search engine ranks.
    *Bookmark traffic is low quality - very few people will click adverts or buy items on your hubs.
    *You only get high traffic for a day or two - real quality backlinks help you get more and more traffic over time. The chances of going viral on a bookmarking site are one in a million.

    Many people would advocate using quality backlinks instead of bookmarking. I personally do not backlink OR bookmark. It's a personal choice but I'd rather write 100 hubs that do well in a year than 5 that I promote continuously and start earning well from in a month.

      Thx Wry - so after you write a hub, do you do other things to try to get backlinks or just rely on the hub quality to do that?

        On this account I probably have 30 or so backlinks floating around from experimentation. I have other accounts now which I use to write for money (this is my for fun account). On those accounts I write it and leave it - they have to fend for themselves.

    The only places I consistently backlink to are my own blog(s), Facebook and Twitter.

      Thx. I am doing the same with some bookmaking experimentation such as Reddit and Red Gage

      She told Me - i actually had a problem in bookmarking there. They said all my hub bookmarks violated their rules but wouldn't state which rules. All I did was post the title link. Could it have something to do with other links in the hubs? Did you have any problems there?

        Did you write 50 words?

        As long as:

        a) your link hasn't been shared on the site already


        b) you have written a minimum of 50 words

        I think it is pretty fail safe smile

    I use:

    You'll have some backlinks from these sites, however I don't know the quality of these backlinks.
    Note: mix the content of your bookmarks.

    I use Pligg sites to social bookmark.

    They are all on auto approve, they don't ban your site and get indexed very quickly.

    Anyone interested here is the footprint:

    "powered by pligg" + "inurl:register.php"

    Such a site is www dot a typical Pligg social bookmarking site. Note the page rank and the links are dofollow.
