Low Quality social bookmarking marketing is the waste of the time If you want to do social bookmarking then you need to do over StumbleUpon, Reddit, Digg etc because it is platform where you can get good traffic as well as Quality backlinks for your website.

As Rohit said low quality social bookmarking is a waste of time. If you are deliberately setting out to spam sites like reddit and stumbleupon with your content then you will get nowhere.

You need people to be naturally sharing your content on these kinds of sites, that is when you will see a spike in traffic.

If other people are sharing your content then that is great.

If you are sharing it everywhere then that is spamming and will get you nowhere.

It's still effective provided you do it the right way and not spam every site you see with some lame software auto posting tool. As with anything you MUST participate in the sites in order to get anything out of them.

A lot of new "social bookmarking" websites have appeared over the past few years but I only submit to a few, namely: Reddit, StumbleUpon, Digg, Folkd, Fark, ScoopIt, Slashdot and Delicious.

I have seen some great results using scoop.it

Scoop.it is not exactly "social bookmarking", but rather "content curation" platform.

And the results i have seen all come from content curation websites and not plain social bookmarking like stumbleupon and folkd.

Well If Social Bookmarking is not increasing your traffic than definitely it's a waste of time.

I completely agree with you, submission in low quality bookmarking site is waste of time as it will not help to increase the traffic of the website.

Whereas, submission in high quality bookmarking sites will help to increase the traffic.

Even Title of your submission matters a lot to make the reader click the link.

Yes, social bookmarking is still an effective way to get traffic to your website. But you have to make sure that you do social bookmarking on constant basis and use different usernames and descriptions to make it look natural.

I am using the following social bookmarking sites for my blog.

StumbleUpon, Reddit,Delicious, Inbound.org,Growth Hackers, Scoop it,

Pinterest,Buffer, etc. Among those, I find most of my traffic from StumbleUpon.

It depends on your niche and which areas you are working. So before using various social bookmarking sites try to know which sites are famous or popular for which purposes.

I think we should clarify what "effective" means for everyone.

If "effective" means "drives direct traffic", then there are many social bookmarking websites that do this.

If "effective" means "get backlinks to improve seo and serps", then i think only the best bookmarking sites work.

And I think your list contains almost all of them.

The list you reposted is just fine, and i think you do not have to add anything else, except maybe folkd.

Yes, it is still effective if you have done in only quality sites. If you have done into low PR sites then it is just worthless. So try to do social bookmarking into high PR sites only. You will get list of high PR sites easily from the search engine. So update all your social bookmarking sites.

You are advising the OP spam social bookmarking sites?

Beyond whether social bookmarking is or is not an effective marketing tactic today or not, if your target audience visits these site it isn't going to build your reputation or following if you a ) use different names and b ) spam the site(s). There is nothing natural about spam.
