How To Get Visitors Flowing In From Social Bookmarking Sites

Author : Rob Selaney


Getting traffic is important for every single website in every single niche. If you don't have the correct sort of traffic finding your website, all of the efforts you have made will have gone to waste. Although there are plenty of methods for gaining exposure for your site, social bookmarking has become one of the most unique ways to send very targeted traffic to the sites you create. In the last few years, social media has gained a lot of attention for being a great way to help a website get the level of exposure that you want for it. If you've been hoping to leverage the power of social bookmarking for traffic purposes, this is the article you should read.

Sales Pitches are A Big No-No: When you submit your link to a social bookmarking site you need to remember that the people who make use of social bookmarking sites are only looking for information and not for anything else. This is why you should never ever bookmark your sales page, because that would be nothing but direct selling. People who use these social bookmarking sites know immediately that you are trying to make a direct sales pitch instead of helping them. This will cause all of your hard work to backfire. Instead, you should submit your link to a pre-sales page that will offer up some real information about the niche that you have targeted so that you can warm up the traffic before you send them on to your sales page.

Make Sure You Go First: Social bookmarking is catching up as a traffic generation method because it is a great way to get people to visit your sites but this also means that the competition is growing so you need to work to stay ahead of everyone else. You have to stay alert when you use social bookmarking sites to generate traffic for yourself because even a little bit of leniency will give away some of your ground to your competitors. For example, when you work within the "dog training" niche, you need to regularly give away valuable information that the site users will bookmark because it really helps them. This helps you stay competitive with the other sites in your same niche that are angling for your same traffic.

Include a Profile Picture: You'll quickly learn, when using sites like Reddit and Digg, that other users often identify people by their profile pictures so make sure the picture you use is an eye catching one. You might not think the picture is a big deal, but it can really make a difference. It can make you seem more believable and your profile will seem more interesting. Your end goal is to get the best reaction possible from the other users, no matter what kind of marketing initiative you choose for yourself. Boring is never interesting, which is why it never sells. Valuable User Status Works For You: Don't limit your bookmarking to content you generate; bookmark any other valuable resources you can find inside of your niche. You don't want other users to think that you are only out for yourself; being a spammer is never a good thing. This is why you need to make sure you use the social bookmarking account for regular activities too. To sum up, this article clearly shows you how you can make your social bookmarking really work for you and send traffic to your site. It will take a while before you actually begin to see a tangible return on your efforts but those efforts really will pay off in the long run.
