Social Bookmarking and Seo
Shared by: primusboy
Social Bookmarking and Seo Social bookmarking is a new trend in search engine optimization, which has gained recognition as part of a new type of website optimization, termed “social media optimization (SMO).” Social Book marking, also referred to sometimes as “social bookmarketing”, is the term used for bookmarking sites on the web and sharing them with friends. It is similar to bookmarking a site on your pc, in the “favorites” of your web browser. There is an increasing number of websites available on the web that provides this as a free service for bookmarking your sites or blogs on the web. These sites are known as social bookmarking sites. Once you have created a free account, you may begin adding bookmarks to your account. The advantage is that once you have bookmarked any site then you can access them from anywhere on the web, and also share them with friends. So how is social bookmarking useful for SEO you ask? Social bookmarking sites are “tag based”- which means you can “tag” them with keywords so your visitors that bookmark your site can find them easily later. Search engines index these tags, as well as the link, so you are essentially getting free one-way links from high-traffic sites, with all of your keywords attached to them! It is a great way to get your website visitors working for you. However, choosing proper tag names is critical and plays a very important roles if you want to truly get social book marking to work for you in your search engine optimization process. The interesting thing is that there are no limitations for the number of tags you can attach to your link. The extent to which you declare tags will allow for your site’s information to be stored. Additionally, when someone bookmarks your site, the bookmarking site checks the tags to see if the link already exists. So by periodically changing your bookmark tags, you can get multiple links with different tags on the same site. In other words, your site will be stored in different pages and you will get links from the different pages of the same sites. Because these sites are regularly crawled by search engines, your site will most likely also be crawled more often by having bookmarked links on these websites.
