What are your ideas on social bookmarking sites?

I would like to raise a question about social book sites here! What are your ideas, recommendations and strategies on how to promote a website in social networks like Digg, Delicious and others? Is there any sense to perform website submission to social networking sites and how to get high amounts of traffic as a result? Could you please share your own experience on this matter?

The problem with social bookmarking is a lot of people are doing it but only a handful of people are getting any benefits. There are certain rules to the game and you have got to take the time and follow them. Some tips on the rules at Social networking for internet marketers. It takes time to make social networking work.

Anyone expecting to start getting a ton of traffic a couple of weeks on Twitter just isn't getting it

social bookmarking is actually a good idea to use as many networking sites as you can to get traffic.

social bookmarking sites are good source of traffic...make an attractive title but not that exaggerated, and also make sure that it's still relevant to your post...

Social bookmarking and networking sites are basically for personal use but they are largely used for promotional purpose, it generate good traffic for the site but not as much beneficial as links from relevant resources.

oday social bookmarkings is one of the factor that will help your site increase its market. For seo, this a good way to gain quality traffic and for ordinary people that they may find other people that shares same interest like themselves. There will be exposure, but revenue may not be easy because this sites are always visited by people for socializing and only a few are customers.
Make sure you have something newsworthy, humorous, quirky, unique or shocking to say.

Social Bookmarking sites are very good for both backlinks and traffic.

Well let me rephrase that, they are always good for backlinks but they are good for traffic only if you use them correctly. Bookmarking sites were created to be able to allow users to be friends and share great websites with each other, but it has become used for marketing and back link building only.

When people end up adding you and only book marking their sites only, it becomes more of a self promoting prophecy and people will end up ignoring these types of people.

Social bookmarking sites are very good. Especially if you have a great offer, than, you get good one way links, traffic boost, and sometimes results gets listed in search engines, of course depending on keyword.

Sometimes, i see huge peaks in traffic after my social bookmarking work

My SEM Specialist friend recommend social bookmarking sites to increase more online visibility and it is true it can give the site you want to promote some increase in hits and traffic. Just pick the top bookmarking site to better get the best results for your every submission. I personally recommend Digg and Technorati I also see massive traffic increase after submitting to StumbleUpon.
There good luck and keep on keeping up.

Considering that most of the social bookmarking sites now use no follow links, how do they help backlinks???

If you have something good to offer specially when something to do with humor then social bookmarking is a great tool to help you get traffic and back links as well.

i think that social bookmarking sites will not be that important in the folowing years since it is becoming a place for spammers. everybody promote their own websites therefore the real meaning of these sites are being displaced by simple spam.

In my personal view, Digg seems to be dominated by few powerful users.
