Excellent, that's probably the most concise explanation of the benefits of using Social Media I've read anywhere, I'll be copying and pasting that into some of my emails to clients when next they ask the same question.Benefits of Social Bookmarking
1. Quick Indexing: The fastest way to have any webpage or site visited by the search engines and indexed is by submitting them to any of the popular social book-marking sites like StumbleUpon, OnlyWire and others. I have had a brand new one-day old website visited by the Yahoo, Google and MSN search engine robots within 24 hours of submitting them to these social book-marking sites. I can categorically say that it is the best bait to attract the bots to your pages.
2. Traffic Generation: There is more to book-marking your pages online than just getting indexed; you are also guaranteed some traffic from these sites as soon as you submit to them. Since you will also be tagging (or submitting them under your niche keywords), a lot of the traffic from these sites are also very targeted. The result is that you may also have return visitors if you have very useful content or compelling offers on your website.
3. Personal Branding: Most of the social bookmarking sites like StumbleUpon also give you the opportunity to develop your own page on their site. This is more like a more developed profile that you can use to list all your web pages, post links to your sites and even publish content on any niche that you may be involved in.
4. Quality Backlinks: As I mentioned above, you can build a personal page on a lot of the social book-marking sites, including the leading one, StumbleUpon. I have seen personal pages on these sites that have grown to a PR3 and even PR4. The effects of these is that your page will be frequented by the search engine robots, indexing any new content that you post on it and even following links to your own personal site and indexing the new pages and content on them. People pay top dollars to have high Page Rank links pointing their way, but with the right profile, you get them for free anytime and for a long time to come.
Social networking can help generate traffic because it is a marketing technique or a viral marketing that encourages people to pass along the marketing messages.Hi all,
I am new in this field, that's why i have so many queries related to SEO works.
I want to know how does social book marking works and how does it gives me benefits?
I reckon anything you can buy on Indian SEO sites will be devalued as much as possible by Google. Same goes for blog comments.Will actually mean less in 2009 - from Matt Cutts, intends to devalue SM links and I agree - far too open to spam.
