Last week or so, I've had someone build social bookmarking/networking accounts on various sites (no pligg). Then I had her submit each of my pages for one of my sites to each site, I limited her to 10 pages per account.

Do you think Google will flag this for manual review? I told her to hold on making any more accounts for now for this site.

There is no reason why they would.

Wouldn't that make it very easy to nuke the competition?

So does links from social sites count as a backlink in google?

Depends if its nofollowed or not. But given the large amount of links on a social bookmarking page, the links dont pass much power. Use social bookmarking for visitors and search engine discovery.

It will cause no harm, in short.
But never overdo anything

Many bookmarks add "no follow" in links,so check it before your work.

and i don't think it will cause harm to your site,but if your links get more development for now,and later it decreases greatly....maybe you'll get punished from google,so just take care.

You should be fine, If you think about it google and search engines would like to see your link all over the social media secton as that is pretty much the new area where public talk about websites, brands and other information. Google im sure would look at it in a good lght.

Thats my thoughts.

When you say had her submit each of your pages, what exactly are you describing? Do you mean that she Tweeted (as an example) 10 different Tweets, each with their own destination URI on your site? What value did that add to the overall equation? Are you participating at those Social Media outlets or are they just being used as a "sounding board" for your content? Remember the word "Social" here.

Can too many links from Social Sites be harmful? Sure they could if done incorrectly. Too much of anything is usually harmful to some extent. Keep in mind, you are building a "link profile" right now. Do you want that profile focused in the Social Media space? If so, you're on the right track but maybe going about it the wrong way. The way the above reads almost sounds as if you are abusing the Social Media outlets where this stuff was supposedly submitted.

People have to remember that every search is different. If your doing work for lawyers you only have to worry about what your competitors are doing. You really don't have to worry about how Old Navy got number one for clothes. A lot of people are not competing with brand names. If your working in the local space things are different than national. This argument is not that important to some people.
