For your convenience, our list of social bookmarking sites is alphabetized, and has been set up for each site to open in a new window, and where possible, it links directly to the new user registration page. We are doing our best to list ensure that this is truly a list of free social bookmarking sites.
Backlink Strategy Tips
If you are looking to create social bookmarks as a way of creating links to your website, I highly recommend SocialAdr.com which has a free service, however the paid service is very inexpensive and you can expect and get amazing results with it.
With quality blog networks like ArticleRanks, you can get 500 to 1000 high quality high pr links to your website.
While a lot of SEO experts say that systems that create back-links to your website will cause you to be penalized by Google, and I appreciate everything Google offers. However, these days a lot of people are going to social bookmarking sites like StumbleUpon to discover new websites. Tools like SocialAdr and ArticleRanks can create channels of traffic to your website quickly, while still being “Google Courteous”. I encourage you to do what it takes to drive traffic to your website ethically, and to create original quality content. If anything, look to w3c.org for guidance, not Google. It is important to respect Google policy, and also know that they aren’t the only source of driving traffic to a website.
