As an Internet marketer, naturally, I visit the forums that all of you visit, just so I can see what other marketers are talking about and so that I can interact with them. I notice a lot of newbies out there saying that they don’t know whether or not they should take advantage of social bookmarking. Heck, I even notice a lot of newbies saying that they don’t really quite understand what social bookmarking is. It is for this reason that I have decided to take a moment to share with you all the importance of social bookmarking.
Before I elaborate on how important social bookmarking is, allow me to tell you what it is. Have you ever opened up your email and found that your friend has sent you the URL of website? If so, then you and your friend have contributed in social bookmarking. Social bookmarking is the act of saving a URL to a Web site onto another Web site.
Thanks to social bookmarking, those who are looking for particular information on the Web don’t have to sort through all of the results on search engines. Instead, they can take a look at a social bookmarking site and hone in on the websites that contain the particular information that they are seeking.
So, why is social bookmarking so important to an Internet marketer? Well, for one, it allows the URL of your website to be seen by a more targeted audience. When you reach your targeted audience, you are more likely to have greater success, as these people are going to be interested in your products and services and will more likely purchase them. Another reason why social bookmarking is so important is because it helps to increase your page ranking. Search engines crawl social bookmarking sites regularly. The more your URL is found on these sites, the more value the search engines are going to assign your website. When the search engines find your website valuable, your page ranking goes up. When your page ranking goes up, your website is more visible to an even wider audience.
Social bookmarking is one of the key ingredients needed for a successful Internet marketing business. Sure, you can set up your site, use social media, add new content and so forth, but without social bookmarking, you may not see the results that you wish to see.
So now that you know how important it is, head on over and add your URL to as many social bookmarking sites as you can.
