3 Social Bookmarking Sites that will Get You Traffic

Lets keep it simple, Social Bookmarking gets your more traffic.fact!

 

When you hit publish on an article, it is time to promote it! It is a better use of your time promoting quality content then simply moving onto the next article.

 

If your article adds value, the smart move is to get as many eyeballs on it as possible. With online business, the spent promoting content can often yield more site visits than an equal amount of time spent writing a new article.

 

So when you hit publish, the first step should be to add your content to popular social bookmarking sites.

 

There are a few advantages to this, these sites are well established with millions of users. They deliver related content to users, meaning that you can get your content onto the screens of potential new followers faster than if you simply rely on organic traffic.

 

On top of this, users can often rate the content they are presented with. This is a major bonus, as it means that quality content spreads faster. You may not have a big following, if one at all and still enjoy decent website traffic off the back of these social bookmarking sites.

 

The final reason we like social bookmarking sites is the fact they are very community oriented. Their users take pride in being members of the communities and believe in that they recommend.

 

Within the corporate world, it has been shown that people are 70% more likely to make a purchase based on a recommendation from a friend than with simply engaging with sales people.

 

Taking that mantra online, people are more likely to engage with your content when it gets recommended within a social bookmarking community than simply a piece of content they find organically in Google.

 

So with that in mind, here are the three social bookmarking sites you need to take note of:

1. Stumbleupon.com
This is one of the best sources of free quality traffic on the internet.

2. Digg.com
If you submit enough quality content you can get featured and this will drive a lot of traffic your way.
3. Reddit.com
They have the mission statement to be the “front page of the internet”. It is another excellent way to drive free traffic to your site.

 

Everytime you hit publish, you need to add your new content to these sites at the very least!!
