Building Back Links to Your Website - Social Bookmarking

Social bookmarking is saving your favourite links on a public server instead of saving it in your browser on your own computer. By saving your favorite sites on a public server, you can access them from anywhere with an internet connection, not to be bound by your home computer anymore.

Social bookmarking is used widely by Internet marketers to build backlinks to their websites. When you save your own website url as a favorite link on a public server, you build a backlink to your site in the eye of the search engine. The more such back links the merrier.

There are many social bookmarking clubs out there; they are usually free to join. You not only can save your primary web url in your account with these clubs, you can also save individual web pages’ urls in your account, essentially adding more back links to your site. As such, the more clubs you join and save your web urls as favorites the better.

If you join many such clubs, it can get time consuming and tedious to log into each of these social bookmarking clubs to save your urls. Wherever there is a problem, there is a solution. There are services such as Only Wire that consolidate the updating of the bookmarks with one "Ping". You open an account with them and provide your logins and passcodes for the social bookmarking clubs that you have. Then you only need to save your favorite once with say Only Wire; all of your clubs will be updated with your new favorite link.

The "Add to Only Wire" link on my blog page is exactly for this purpose. Every time I make a new blog post, I would add it to the Only Wire by clicking this link, which updates the social bookmarking clubs that I’ve joined under Only Wire with my new blog entry’s url.

Only Wire’s bookmarking services do not all work. But a good 70% does. So if you wish to start adding some back links via social bookmarking, joining the services with Only Wire is a convenient start.

Hope you find this information helpful. Drop me a note; I'd like to hear from you.
