Social Media Marketing: Viral Marketing Using Bookmarking

You have probably noticed all of the different bookmarking websites throughout the internet. These bookmarking sites such as Squidoo, StumbleUpon, Digg, Reddit and others are a great way to market your website by posting SEO articles as well as links.

Bookmarks are easy to place. You can do this yourself and also have others help you. For example, if you have an SEO article that you want publicized about your website, you can place a link to the article on any of the bookmaking sites. This allows for more people to spot the article and even rate it. Most of the bookmarking sites are not just for bookmarking but socializing as well. Sites like Digg rate users and send shouts.

Your SEO articles are usually rated on bookmarking sites by how much attention they attract. Articles that are rated the highest get the most attention on the site. It is important for you to have as many people as you know rate the articles so that they can be displayed prominently on the bookmarking website.

To get a bookmaking account, you need only create a username as well as a password. These sites are free and a great way for you not only to post links, but also use blogs. StumbleUpon, for example, has unlimited lenses that you can create. These are webpages in which you can tell all about yourself or your business and they are totally free.
