Have you ever forward something that you saw or read to a friend? How about sharing links with friends? That is exactly what Social Bookmarking is, except people are doing the forwarding for you. In this article we will look at ways you can multiply back links to your site with social bookmarking.
The skill and technique of back linking is a great way to increase traffic to your own website. This form of web traffic is generated through links from other sites that come to yours. This is, in essence, a link from a website or blog, to your web site.
Back links will improve your presence on the internet and in time, increase you position on the search engines. The social sites are usually well known, well thought out sites and blogs that are very much established on the inter net. One thing is though; it is not always the easiest thing in the world to get the access you need to these sites.
When you go to a site and you spot all those little icons and symbols at the bottom and middle of the page, that is social bookmarking.
Each and every one of them is a link to social bookmarking sites. Originally, the term book marking meant that you would set up a way to return to a specific site, sometime later, with ease. On these sites you are allowed to post articles that the other community members vote on. If you pull a lot of votes, you receive a high ranking, and may just end up on the front page.
You will be able to sign up for an account at these sites for free. You know them well. Face book, Twitter, and MySpace. On Face book and Twitter, you will be able to post links that will send the person to your article on Digg.com, Delicious, or your very own web site. You will be absolutely amazed at how fast you will be able to get a group of friends and their friends to post a back link to your article.
Then, in return you will post links to the social networking sites so people can click and go back to that site.
If you are very proactive, you will be able to go and post your own article and put links back to your website. Your friends and business contacts can become members and vote for your articles as well to kind of stuff the ballot box, if you will.
The one thing that will pay huge dividends is quality. If your writing is very good you will get tons of votes and loads of back links. If you write consistently good, you will get a following of people who will always be looking for your next article. Your back links will spread like wild fire.
If you are thinking that your browser or search engine ranking is not as good as you would like it, your quality network of back links can fix this problem. If you are a good writer, you may show up on the front page of Google or Yahoo and before you can say “Jim Dandy”, your website is flooded with traffic.
