Do you still use social bookmarking sites

Back in 2006 it was the hottest trend digg-ing articles, using technorati, reddit etc.
But as i see it, nowadays it has become somewhat outdated to do so(if you check the quality of the bookmarked articles). Do you still use these services? Or you got bored?
Do they have the same appeal as they used to?

Every blog post or article I create I use these social sites to get visitors. The more people that see your content the more likely you are to get social shares.

Social bookmarking is not effective in improving search engine ranking, but I use it to index new site.

I'm using StumbleUpon again now that I have my toolbar back. Didn't like the sign in approach via their website.

Noticed I'm getting some hits from StumbleUpon too.

I got the same feel Thanoz. It’s not that much effects as it was few years ago. Actually, the common link building strategies except article submission is now not much appreciated by the major search engine.

I usually use stumbleupon cause it brings more traffics on the site I submit.

What happened to the popular SB sites a1-webmarks.com and oyax.com; the username & password of my account in the above two sites have been locked about 1 year earlier but still they are not allowing anyone to submit sites. Do you anyone still has the access on these two?? If so, please let me know.

I have done some experiment with social bookmarking and I did only bookmarking for 1 website. Social bookmarking produced great results. I was able to come within top 30 after 1 month for a high competitive keyword.

In my opinion, Social bookmarking works.

A popular post will go crazy, drawing in tons of traffic and exactly the kind of viral backlinks you want to get good rankings.

But an unpopular or spammy post won't receive any benefit from some bookmark buried on page 92746 of the upcoming section - and if it is bad enough you could get yourself & your website banned from the bookmarking community

Yes, I still use Social bookmarking technique. It is one of the effective technique in SEO. It not only helps in getting backlinks but also helps in getting a considerable amount of traffic to the website.

I think those two social bookmarking sites are undergoing site maintenance or new registrations have been suspended.

If it is in under maintenance it is considerably too long time to up this site again. Probably there may be the chance like some of the other SB sites they stopped bookmarking service and re-launched the service as a blog or product selling websites. When SB was in trending, they have simply launched the site for it, once the idea not in popular they again simply stopped the service and using it for another purpose by the earned credit of it was being SB site.

If the new registration with those websites has been suspended means what happened to my registered user account with those websites as it was registered two years ago and used until such problem occurred.

Yes, I use them to still submit my latest articles and other articles I happen to read on the internet - gives me relatively good traffic but none of the traffic seems to come into any effect and have other better sources of traffic
