Social bookmarking, (along with other types of free web promotion techniques), is a very popular practice among bloggers and affiliate marketers. Adding social bookmark links to your blog or web site makes it easy for readers to save and share your content.In a social bookmarking system, users store lists of Internet resources that they find useful. These lists are either accessible to the public or a specific network, and other people with similar interests can view the links by category, tags, or even randomly.
You must have seen “share this” or “bookmark this”after an article or a blog post. This is a common way to encourage users to social bookmark your articles. It greatly helps any website to acquire good positions in search engines for relevant keywords. Social bookmarking has more recently inspired the more successful social news movement which includes websites like Del.icio.us, Reddit, Stumbleupon, Digg and the famous Netscape portal.
These days, social bookmarking has become an indicator of any website’s popularity. There are many ways to learn how many people have bookmarked your blog or website on these social bookmarking websites. SocialMeter.com is one of them.
