Social bookmarking. Who would you trust, a good friend who had a great experience and highly recommended a product or shop, or a nondescript add posted in your local Penny Saver magazine? It would be the source you considered most reliable, hands down. That’s why, if you have lots of friends, or a large following on a blog, facebook, or other social media site, you should provide social bookmarking. It’s the web’s version of “word of mouth” for passing on recommendations.
Make it easy for your visitors to social bookmark your website, creating important links that the search engines value. It can greatly assist in “spreading the word” and generating free, unilateral, and varied link-backs to your site. There are plenty of free social bookmarking widgets available; google will offer many suggestions if you search for bookmarking widgets. See for your self.
