Social Bookmarking And Why Its Fast Becoming The New Wave For Free Traffic Generation
First, Blogs were the BIG new thing as a traffic source, and still are, but guess what... now it's Social Bookmarking.
Social Bookmarking if you aren't quit sure is simply a service where the web user can surf the web and bookmark there favorite websites, articles, pictures, etc., to their account through the Social Bookmarking service they signed up with.
The advantage to doing this from the web users point of view is they can locate all their favorites from one easy to navigate location.
How they locate their saved bookmarks is quite simple. All they do is 'Tag' them using keywords associated to whatever it is they are bookmarking. So when it comes time to wanting to access that information all they have to do is type in the 'Tag' associated to their query.
Okay, that's the basic run down of what Social Bookmarking is and its primary use. Now lets move on to the juicy stuff... Traffic Generation.
What I didn't tell you in the above explanation is that if the web user chooses they can make their bookmarks *public*.
Now, what do I mean by *public*? It means that the Social Bookmarking community and the web will have access to whomevers bookmarked information, whether its articles, pictures, websites, reviews , etc... etc.
Are you starting to see the connection?
Let me explain further from an marketers perspective.
Let's say I opened up an account at an Social Bookmarking service and it is ready for me to start bookmarking whatever it is I want to bookmark.
Well, guess what I'm going to start bookmarking?
You guessed it, my websites and all their webpages. I'm also going to 'Tag' these webpages using keywords I think other web users within my Social Bookmarking community and the web would search for so they will find them. And since I've made my account a *public* account anybody will be able to find my bookmarks giving my websites webpages "FREE Targeted Traffic".
Your pages as I mentioned earlier can be Product Reviews, Articles, Sales Letters, or VRE(Virtual Real Estate) with Adsense.
Your totally in control as to what you want to bookmark.
Just don't 'SPAM' them with junk. People use these services to locate information, so simply give them what they want and in return you get "FREE Targeted Traffic" which in turn could make you some sales without costing you a dime.
I have to say that's pretty Cool!!
With search engines becoming so full of junk and 'SPAM' people are starting to resort to other means of locating the targeted information their looking for. Thats where Social Bookmarking communities come into play and where you can benefit, if you follow the rules.
More and more Social Bookmarking services are popping up because of there ability to easily locate targeted information by simply using 'Tags' making it easier for the web user to find the information their looking for.
I truly hope you see how POWERFUL - Social Bookmarking - can be as another means of targeted traffic generation and urge you to look into it further for your own sake to see if it's something you might want to consider as another source of traffic generation for your websites.
