Making Money through Social Bookmarking

Is This Really A New Trend?

It is certain that some online trends are new to our lives, but have you ever questioned yourself if they are really new at all? Perhaps the reinvention of an old custom is the case of social bookmarking. Bookmarks used to be a very common thing for events, or reading through a book, curiously enough they weren’t something you would share but today it has become something different – so different that it can actually help you make money by impacting your website.

How It Works

On these social websites for bookmarks different people share information, products or links they have found on the internet for everyone to see. This way, each time that someone posts or shares something related to your webpage it creates a back link, which in turn ranks you higher up in search engines’ results, therefore driving more and more traffic to your website.

Making Money from It

If you have a product to sell or a service to offer, this can surely be a game changer if done correctly. Generating affiliate links can be achieved by paying attention to trends, and see what other people are bookmarking in order to determine a compelling title that will most likely interest a network of people or at least have them pay attention to you.

Make Sure You Are Doing It Right

You should, however, make sure that whichever social bookmarking site you sign up for, has enabled link following in the robot configuration, since if it isn’t enabled your search for an audience and back link building will be in vain. You may build something of an audience but it will not benefit your search engine ranking unless they post it somewhere else where this feature is enabled.

Also take into account that it is possible to pay for some sites to bookmark you, some even for a very small fee but this can help you as much as hurt you if you are not careful. Some of these sites have been banned, or carry adult content or aggressive material, which perhaps are not the best things for your business to find itself to be associated with.
