How should I get traffic to a bookmarking website?
I'm trying twitter but with 250 followers, it seems as if I get filtered out. My website is seekyt.com. It has been live for about 3 weeks but it only has about 20 members. I am in the process of being approved by addthis to have my site added to their list. Also, I have written a hub about my site. Read it for more details if you need them. It is revenue sharing, easy to get to the front page, etc., and I have added as much value to the site as possible, including do-follow links, but still little success. Any ideas?
Plenty. You need to get on more sites with more members. Long time shared sites like Digg, Xomba and She Told Me will also share revenue. They also have no objection to your posting links to your hubs. Red Gage is an interesting and new up and comer.
You can find plenty of others in the Addthis drop down menu. Join a few you feel comfortable with. I especially like Digg and Xomba, just because they're easy and have members who read. I would suggest, in addition to Twitter, you post everything to Facebook and ask your friends to share with their friends. You end up with new contacts and, hopefully, many back links.
Finally, and most importantly, get involved in the sites you post to. Establish some friends and comment thoughtfully on their links and in forums. Xomba even as a chat feature. All these things help others get to know and like you. If you are writing good, original material that others like to read, you'll do fine. But be patient too. You can't build a presence overnight. Creating an ad and affiliate based business takes time, and there are few shortcuts.

IzzyM and I have been chatting about backlinking, and disagreeing on what's the best way to go about it. She's been spending hours backlinking her Hubs on social bookmarking and backlinking sites, because she feels that's been recommended on the forums by Hub gurus. I'm not at all sure that's...

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?

Is there a way to get rid of unwanted traffic sites that attach a link to our hubs without our knowledge? I try to individually monitor my hubs for suspicious traffic and have written two letters to the offender who has sent me 8 visits on one hub this week. Now HubPages has marked my hub with a...

I recently found SocialMonkee and love the site and program. I was just wondering if anybody else likes them as much or has other bookmarking sites they'd rather use.

Is anybody else using Reddit as a source of traffic to your Hubs, or own websites?I have always known about Reddit but just signed up for an account, and posted a link to on of my websites. Now I am far from a marketing guru and a mediocre writer at best, but I just posted that link on Reddit about...
