I have found that Social Bookmarking can increase traffic. In this video I explain what Social Bookmarking is and how to apply it. I also show you step by step how to mark your sites and pages on 48 different social bookmarking sites in less than 20 mins.. I will show you how to use Socialmarker.com
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please watch the entire video and read this post entirely ... There is an update about SPAMMING!!!!
What is SocialMarker.com?
Social bookmarking is a powerful tool in promoting a website. But going through all of those social bookmarking sites is very time-consuming and downloading all toolbars is madness! That's where SocialMarker.com comes in, the free service designed to reduce the time and effort needed to socially bookmark a website.
This tool should not be used to SPAM Social Bookmarking sites, rather to speed up your bookmarking process.
This video is very interactive.. you will find live links so you can click and follow along.. Brought to you by Handmadeology
For those of you using Internet Explorer that can't drag the SocialMarker button into your tool bar.. you will have to enter the info manually... you will only have to do this once per url that you mark. It will only slow the process down a few seconds!
What you want to do:
1. Read all the Terms of Service for any bookmarking site before
you mark any link. Most bookmarking sites will not allow
you to mark commercial sites, like Etsy.
2. Mark cool sites you find...blogs...videos..pictures..articles...
3. Provide the info.. Remember you are marking links so
others can find them.. If they see a link with little text that is
not interesting.. they will move on.
4.When you can add a picture do it.. this will grab attention to a mark.
Like stated in the Video PLEASE read the Do's and Don't of each site
Here are the Dos and Don'ts of the 5 major sites

3. Never Create an account on any site just to mark your links alone... this is SPAM.
4. Only submitting your own blog posts? YOU are a social bookmarking spammer!
5. Do not mark until you read the terms of service.
6. Don't Mark Etsy links on the sites that don't allow it.
