Bookmarking Sites-The Importance of Using Them

Do you use bookmarking sites already to help promote your writing? If not, then you could be missing out on a ton of views and business. There are dozens, if not even hundreds of bookmarking sites popping up online these days. Some are more well known than others and can drive in the crowds while others don’t seem to be doing much at all.

So, what do you do? Most people do not have the time to spend trying out each and every one, and if a lot of them don’t produce, is it really worth your time?

I will give you a list of the social bookmarks sites that I use. I was until just recently spending the time to go to each site individually to post my bookmark but then found out that OnlyWire is a service where you can do it all at the same time with one click of a button after you have entered in all of your username and password info for each site you are signed up to.

There are 2 ways to use OnlyWire. One is, you can download and install the wordpress plugin for your own blog. Once you have done a post every day, it can then be posted to all the bookmark sites.

The second way is to log into your account on OnlyWire and do a post submission to the url where your article is located(Bukisa, Xomba, Triond, ect). You then click to submit and it runs through all of your choices of bookmarks and submits to them.

There are 48 bookmark sites that you can sign up for and enter your info for OnlyWire to submit to. I presently use 21 of them. I do not know the other sites and haven’t bothered to try.

Here are my favorite sites:

She Told Me

This site is actually not part of the group that OnlyWire submits too right now but it is a part of the tools on Triond if you post to that site. I find it is worth the effort to go to the site and log in on your own every day because you also get a share of adsense revenue from this site. There are not many social bookmark sites that have this opportunity to earn extra income.

Xomba

Many of you may already be using this to post your articles to. This is also excellent for posting your links from other articles. It gives you yet another option to earn a share of adsense revenue from your postings.

Stumble Upon

Is the site that I get most of my traffic coming from right now. There are over 22 million people on this site just ready to go check out what you post.

Delicious is another top performing site for me.

Digg is another popular place to post although I have not seen very much coming from there.

Yahoo Buzz and Bookmarks-these are 2 different links I think. Not quite sure on that. I just submit to yahoo buzz mostly, only added the other one to OnlyWire the other day.

LinkedIn

This is more of a social media site but it is good for posting links as well so that others can see what you are doing.

Facebook

The link I have posted here is for my Facebook. If you would like to add me, by all means, do so. This is a great way to post everything from your blog to the articles you submit on all the other sites.

Twitter yeah, click on the link and go ahead to follow me. I will follow you back as well. This is another every day post routine for me. I get quite a bit of traffic from here.

Mixx.com

This is a new one for me, I just started using it a few days ago so I do not have any stats on it yet.

Reddit.com

This also is a new one for me but my friends from the WAHM forum say they have had good results from this site. So I added it.

If you want to take the time to sign up at all of the sites listed in the OnlyWire, it may take some time initially to get it all set up, but then once it is done, all you have to do is click for the one option in OnlyWire and it will go out to everywhere. I will probably add some more to my list from there as well when I get some more free time. I want to keep tabs on a few sites at a time so I can see what is doing the best and with which types of articles. If you add too much at one time you can confuse and overwhelm yourself.

Good luck! Happy Bookmarking!
