Hi,

What is the best "safe" way to use social bookmarking to gain traffic and backlinks?

I have heard of duplicate content from the SB sites and I don't want to spam them...

Do I want to slowly add each page of my sites to each bookmarking site?

also, I have mutliple sites, so do i add each site under the same account or create a new account for each SB site for each of my sites?

any tips on the best and safest way to gain traffic and backlinks from soclial bookmarking? (white hat only please)

you know now that I am thinking about it... I wouldnt submit an article to one the of the social sites until google/ other search engines have crawled that actual article on your site, whereas to let them know its YOUR article, with regard to dup content.

Even at that, Google can drop your article during a data refresh, but pick up someone else's copy of your article and index it.

Sometimes linking within the article to your exact article is helpful so that when sites pickup the article they publish a link to yours, but this is not always the case unfortunately.

Neither of the above apply. Legit social bookmarking occurs bcause true social bookmarking users find your content useful and helpful, not from you as a site owner bookmarking every page on your own site.

You likely can't bookmark your way to any gains.

Is this an e-commerce site? If so, I was just blogging about something similar.

I'm with you, sugarrae.

The funny thing about this thread is that I have never had any traffic from SB sites until a few days ago - since then, it tripled my traffic.

Increase in AsSense CTR: Almost zero.

I think people that specifically look for the content I provide are more likely to be interested in ads than people who...stumble upon things.

But if any of them subsequently link to you then it may help others to stumble upon you.
