Social Bookmarking and Common Mistakes Made

Social Bookmarking is one of the best ways to promote both content and your favorite websites. When it comes to the whole process, you may like to read and note down one or two tips from below.

 

First Bookmarking Mistake: Obvious Self-Interest

Webmasters usually bookmark to a variety of social bookmarking sites in order to generate traffic from various sources. When it comes to mistakes in bookmarking, then the first is only bookmarking your own websites, content or blogs. The bad thing about bookmarking every single page on your site is that the majority of sites will pick up eventually that you are just promoting your content alone. This could result in a ban or your account being locked. To make it look natural, you need to bookmark other sites including ones that are not related to your niche.

 

Second Bookmarking Mistake: Repetition

The second common mistake is when you bookmark more than one site and use the same title and description of your bookmark. You will need to rotate the titles and descriptions and cover more keywords within them for multiple sites. This will look natural and give you better results in the search engines.

 

Third Bookmarking Mistake: Marketing with Titles

The third mistake is people tend to use advertisements as the title, and this must be avoided. Doing this could cause people to not even read the bookmark. The important part of the bookmark is the title as that is what seeks attention and gets people to read your content. When it comes to SEO, then a keyword should also be in the title and needs to be relevant to the bookmark.

 

Fourth Bookmarking Mistake: Poor Content on Targeted Pages

The final common mistake is bookmarking pages that have very little or no content or pages with low quality content. Pages that contain helpful information, images and even videos should be bookmarked. E.g.) If there is going to be a sale on products, you could bookmark this as it will be helpful to people purchasing your products. However, pages that only have pictures and prices, but no content should not be bookmarked.
