Why post to Social Bookmarking sites ?
Social bookmarking sites provides a user a mechanism to not only store and manage their URLs but also to share them with other users. Over the years lot of social bookmarking sites have cropped up (For example twitter, digg, stumbleupon, reddit etc ). For any new content to get a lot of visibility it sometimes might be necessary to submit your new content to a few different social bookmarking sites so that it gets a lot more eyes on it. I have encountered few sites that makes the submission really easy and automatic by submitting to multiple social bookmarking sites at the same time. Out of the many such services out there the only one worth recommending is Onlywire.
How to post to social book marking sites automatically
Onlywire submits to almost all of the well known social bookmarking sites and provides a free and a paid service. Paid service saves you the hassle of entering captcha manually. One thing to know is that many submissions fail as there is no standard defined between the social bookmarking sites and Onlywire. It is more or less best effort basis. Onlywire has a wordpress plugin for blogs also. Some of the tried and tested social bookmarking sites which provides public visibility of your bookmarks that are available on Onlywire are
- Aol Lifestream
- Yahoo Bookmarks
There are a few other lesser known sites that submit content to social bookmarking sites. Once such example is SocialMonkee . This site is always successful in submitting the bookmarks to all the social bookmarking sites but unfortunately they do not submit to any good social bookmarking sites. From my experience, the social bookmarking sites Socialmonkee caters to were just created to help create huge number of back links and no one really ever visits these sites at all. These sites are therefore not recommended.
