Default Blogs & Bookmarking

i am working from home and am actually, thank goodness making money online with my website business. i'm not rich, just earning a comfortable living. I don't know if i'm a bit slow on the uptake but i just recently realised that i can post my blogs onto bookmarking sites like Digg, Mixx, subbmitt and lots of others. they always receive much more traffic this way than if they are just left to magically receive traffic.

hope this helps anyone who didn't know this and sorry to everyone else who's known this for ages.

John

Yes, that is a good thing to be doing: whenever you make a blog post you should be adding it to the social bookmarking sites.

Keep in mind, though, that it's good to submit OTHER people's sites, too, not just your own sites.

I agree. You have to mix it up. Oh, and submit to Mixx too.

Submission in Social book marketing websites not only ensures targeted traffic but it can also increase the chance of being crawled by Google robot. Besides that, social bookmarking can help a website to get inbound links.

Social bookmarking sites can indeed do wonders to your sites traffic. Specially if other people starts digging or stumbling your sites.

Social Bookmarking can be a great way to index your blog posts for certain keywords and get traffic to your site.

My personal favorite Bookmarking Site is SocialMarker.com.

What is everyone elses favorite?

Posting other peoples good content to the social sites is even a better way.You should post your own best posts, but mostly others posts.

The Authority Black Book is a fantastic free guide on social media, I highly recommend it: http://www.authorityblackbook.com
