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.
and now Excerptz.com which I own
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?
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 kirtsy.com a typical Pligg social bookmarking site. Note the page rank and the links are dofollow.

I was getting quite a bit of traffic from Stumbleupon, but the last while I notice it hasn't been accepting my submissions from Hubpages. They say that it's to prevent people from abusing the sytem and just promoting one site all the time. Does anybody know of a way around this?

How many people actually submit their links to social bookmarking and/or networking sites. If you do, do you actually see any results. So far I have gotten very little results from these sites. Any tips, suggestions, or ideas?

Just an FYI, five of the Alexa top ranked Social bookmarking websites have banned Hub Pages links due to spam content. This shtinks, since newer people trying to drive traffic to their articles using these tools cannot. I was able to bypass one and set up bookmarks, but Mr. Wong, Propeller and a...

I use shetoldme and jumptags extensively and they are quite nice for backlink and traffic sources. Recently, I found a site that suggested me to join Folkd.Com. Anybody here use folkd? Does it work?

A Google wizard came down from the mountaintop recently and gave a reading on proper backlinking. He blasted backlinking farms and paid-for linking. Instead, he suggested going to social sites and sundry other venues and writing original content that will relay relevant and helpful information...
