I felt the need to write this article about social bookmarking tools because I know how important social bookmarking all your sites is. Recently I was part of a webinar being conducted by a great Internet marketer and SEO expert about social bookmarking. He made the comment that you really should bookmark not only your website but all of your blog posts and pages. Of course almost all of my blog posts are article material as well and I use a service to automate the article submission for me with a submission time of 30 days so I don’t get too many backlinks at once.

When I do start to get the confirmation emails that my article has been accepted I should also social bookmark all those article URLs. So you can literally get hundreds of article sites posting your content and the best practice is to bookmark every article URL. That is a lot of work if you have ever tried to do all the social bookmarking manually.

Of course there are some free social bookmarking services on the Internet that allow you to post your URL to social bookmarking sites. The best service out there will post to about 79 sites for you, almost automatically and for FREE. OF course you do need to set up all the social bookmarking accounts, which can take hours and hours and think if you actually want to set up more than one account, what a drag just thinking about it.

If you are good with your SEO then you are also creating pages on Wikis and other content sites. Those of course need to be bookmarked as well. Pretty soon it becomes quite evident that if you can automate any part of this process it will save you hours of time that you could be writing content or something you enjoy more than the repetitious work of account creation and URL submissions. Honestly, it is not the most enjoyable task for me.

The good news is that there are programs that will automate your social bookmarking for you. I have recently been looking for the right social bookmarking tool to purchase. Currently I use the free online versions but with all of those links to bookmark I will install a program, set it up and let my PC sit and work while I create on the Mac.

Choosing the right social bookmarking software is real important and so I will list the features that you need to look for in a bookmarking program.

Cost – I have heard some people squawk about the cost of the better social bookmarking programs on the market but they obviously are not social bookmarking the way they should be because if they were they would realize that they would save thousands of dollars in time by automating this process.

Generate Automatic User Accounts – If you have ever spent time creating all the social bookmarking site accounts you would know how much time is involved. There are programs that will automatically create the accounts for you. You may need to check email to confirm the account creations but you don’t have to navigate from site to site.

Random Usernames on Accounts – In conjunction with the feature above that saves time there are programs that will also generate random usernames so it appears more real.

Social Bookmark Scheduler
– To look natural there is only one program I know of that will allow you to set your bookmarking tasks on a schedule. That way it appears natural.

Multiple Accounts at each Social Bookmarking Site
– The program you want will allow you to manage a number of accounts at each bookmarking site. That way you can have more than one link per social bookmarking site to the same article page.

Add social bookmarking sites – Most programs will load only the main social bookmarking sites. There are hundreds of sites online and so a good program will allow you to add more sites so you can have bookmarks in as many places possible, follow or nofollow so you can get more and more traffic.

Social Bookmark Automatically
– Of course you are buying this software so that more of your tasks are automated so besides automatic account creation you want to have the program post your webpage bookmarks automatically as well.

Spin the Title, Description and Tags – You want to make sure the program will not only post these three elements to your social bookmark but it will also spin the information so it is more natural.

Automatic Email Verification – When you submit your social bookmarks some of the sites will send you a confirmation email and there are some programs that will check the email account and activate the link automatically. You can only imagine the amount of time that you will save with this level of automation.

Domain Crawler – Have you been blogging for years that the thought to bookmark all your pages and posts just seems overwhelming? Well there are some programs that will crawl a website that you specify and gather up all the pages. You can then load these into the program and set up the Title, Description and Tags, schedule the bookmarking and go eat a pizza.

RSS Crawler – Some programs will even crawl RSS Feeds so you can load those into the program and bookmark the RSS feeds as well.

Automatic Pinging – Some programs offer a pinging service. Load your URLs and use it to ping them. You do want to be careful since WordPress pings your posts and if you over ping web pages they can be flagged as spamming.

Project Creation and Management – Have you ever used some software that did not save all your work? Make sure your software saves projects so you can go back to it and even export it so you can keep it safe.

Randomization Settings – To ensure that all your social bookmarking accounts are not identical (example: having the same number of outgoing links and tags), you can randomize it by specifying how many percent of your sites and tags are used for bookmarking.

Human Simulation and Anti-Bot – There is only one program that I found in my research that offers this human simulation with submission throttling and even slows down to imitate human submission. You have heard it over and over that it is best to make things look natural. The game is not to “get it down” but to “do it right”.

MultiThreading – This is common with all programs and means that they able to perform a number of tasks at the same time.

Proxy Servers – If you need to use proxy servers get software that will allow this.

Captcha – Some programs will integrate third-party services that will decaptcher captcha pages for you automatically.

In conclusion you can see that choosing from the social bookmarking tools based on price alone is a huge mistake. I have reviewed a number of the social bookmarking tools in my usual Excel spreadsheet way and I made my decision and am so happy I did and have already saved hours and hours of time. I was so excited I wanted to share this good news with other people that are in the process of making a decision.

After all my research I did decide to get the Social Bookmarking Demon and there is not question but that I would do it again.

Wish you the best in your Social Bookmarking. Remember, “Don’t save a dime and lose a dollar.”

    Article spinning, sm submitting, backlink farms — is there any level that people won’t sink to for money?

    Just because it is easy to do this doesn’t make it right. Social media sites are for people. A bit of advertising isn’t a problem, but when you are setting up all these fake accounts only for the links then you’re missing the point.

    The best sites will find ways to block or filter you out. Why not try to act like a real person and spread your message that way?

      Bill,
      I certainly appreciate your sentiments and I would definitely agree with you that this can be a practice that is abused. There are a group on Internet Marketers that are not involved with spamming poor content. I have niche sites that are very informative and helpful and so I certainly post that valuable content for people to get it because of their interest in that topic, say something on health. I could not agree with you more in regards to spamming any website with the typical porn invitations, casinos and erectile dysfunction ads.

      • LoneWolf says:

        I guess it depends on the site. I know that StumbleUpon and Digg users tend to avoid sites posted by someone that is promoting only their own stuff. It gets noticed and flagged.

        • billwynne says:

          I completely agree and after reading your last post at Battling comment spam, a real life example I know you know what you are talking about. One thing is for sure you would not get this kind of rapport taking place. Your comment about using a keyword in the name field of the comment box.

          Appreciate your stand and I wish the Internet were a safer place as I have a daughter that is 8 and I help her with her own blog, she has a powerbook and is WIFId right into the BRAIN. Cheap tricks to make fast money, lame.

    Wow, marvelous blog layout! How long have you been blogging for?!…

  10. Good to read this and I generally do this process manually. I think social bookmarking is a great help to promote your business and to increase your sales as well.

    • billwynne says:

      Sam,
      Manual takes a lot of time but is worth it. I would outsource the work if you want it done 100% manually or at least you need to decide what your skills are that are worth more than form submissions. I think you probably understand.

  11. Social networking is important for all fields including mine, chiropractic neurology. thanks for sharing!

  12. Rachell from OnlyWire Account Creator says:

    I am not into automatic software before. Lately I got an interest on it. I thinks I gotta have to try any of this. Which one is the best?

  13. Reva Morrison from Monex scam says:

    Go Ranked 26 789 in . 859 124 overall For general users social bookmarking websites can be a great way to find cool stuff online that has been recommended and voted on by other users and for people who have their own websites or lenses! to promote they can be a gerat way to put your best content in front of people who might never find it through the search engines as well as to generate valuable links that can help improve your position on the results pages of those search engines. But the problem with the major social bookmarking websites is that their categories are very broad and many of the stories therefore arent all that relevant to the categories they are listed in. That means that users find they have to sift through more stuff that they arent really interested in before finding the good stuff and webmasters lensmasters who submit their links often find that the traffic they get is less well targetted to their own niche and therefore is less valuable Niche social bookmarking websites might not generate the same amount of traffic across their site and the top few links might get less traffic from them than the top few on one of the general sites but often the average link can get just as much traffic and higher quality traffic at that.

  14. Hey !

    Social bookmaking is the one of the best part in e-marketing for your business.If you have to just increase your business in all over the world then you can also use this tool.
    Your information is very well .I am just impress with your detail.

    Thanks a lot.

  15. I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
