How To Do Social Bookmarking For SEO?

SEO companies and firms charge dollars for professional SEO services to their clients and the clients pays them happily because they get effective results.

Why these people pay dollars to the company if they can learn SEO themselves by reading online tutorials and practicing on them? The reason behind this is that if perfect Search Engine Optimization can build up your blog ranking then over and bad SEO can ruin your blog completely.

That’s why it’s a better option to invest some money on your blog optimization. This investment will give you multiple times of benefits and your online business will grow. These companies works on many strategies to optimize a website to bring it at top in major search engines and today in this post I’ll discuss about one of the best SEO strategies that is Social Bookmarking which comes under Off Page SEO.

Most of the newbie bloggers who start learning SEO from reading online tutorials exclude this strategy from their SEO plans because of the following reasons.

  1. They don’t aware with Social Bookmarking.
  2. They don’t have proper knowledge of how to do it for SEO.
  3. They feel it as a waste of time to submit links on various social bookmarking sites.

Whatever the reason but we should not ignore Social Bookmarking for better blog optimization. Today in this post we will discuss about what is Social Bookmarking, how it works in SEO and what are its benefits.

What is Social Bookmarking?

Social bookmarking is a way to bookmark our favorite web pages online to read them anytime and anywhere if we are connected with the internet.

Why Social Bookmarking Comes?

When we surf the internet for the information, we bookmarked some web pages in our browser so that we can read them later without surfing the internet again.

But because of any reason if our browser get crashed or our system get formatted or if we are not at the front of that computer where we save our bookmark then we can’t access them.

We have to again surf the internet to search those pages. To overcome this issue social bookmarking comes. Now we can use our bookmarks easily from any location using any computer which is connected by the internet.

How Social Bookmarking Helps in SEO?

The web pages we bookmarked at social bookmarking sites is considered as a quality backlink in the eyes of search engines.

And we all know that the quality backlinks helps us to increase blog traffic and Google Page Rank. That’s why SEO professionals include SB in their search engine optimization practices.

How to do Social Bookmarking for SEO?

Doing SB is not a tough job. Everyone can do it after learning how to do it.

First you have to collect a list of top social bookmarking sites so that you can easily start your work on them. You can use this Social Bookmarking List to start the process.

Once you are ready with the list, follow below steps to do SB.

In this tutorial I’m taking an example of a very famous SB site i.e

    1. Go to
    2. Create an account or you can also log in with your facebook account.
    3. Now click on the little drop down arrow along with your username at the top right corner and choose Add a Page.

add a page

    1. Now fill a simple form with the appropriate information about your web page like web page address, category, tags etc and click on Add This Page button.

add this page

  1. You are done!

Note: Don’t start submitting your links in social bookmarking sites after reading this tutorial.

The submission should be in a proper way so that you blog always get free from any SEO penalties because I have already said that wrong SEO can ruin your blog ranking.

There are lot of things which we should keep in mind during submission. So make sure to do social bookmarking carefully. Thanks! 🙂

Ankit Kumar Singla

@ Rohan
I am happy that my tutorials are worthy for you.. 🙂


Dear ankit, Nicely explained. I have a doubt, my website contains multiple pages. each targeted each different keywords. shall i bookmark each link along with targeted keywords. Should i use keywords in the title ? how many bookmarks i can submit per day ?

Thanks in advance

Ankit Kumar Singla

@ venkateshkirsh
Thanks dear to raise this interesting question here.
Yes of course you should all those pages with targeted keywords. But keep below points in mind during submission.
1) Use only single keyword in Title.
2) Use other keywords in tags.
3) Use different description per submission.
4) Don’t submit more than one link in single bookmarking site.
5) Don’t submit links in those sites which have same IP.
6) Don’t do SB continuously. Use it wisely means sometime do SB and sometime do Directory Submission for the same keywords to gain ranking for those keywords.
Submit at least one article in article submission sites and then do SB for that article too.
7) Don’t do SB more than 25-30 on same day.
Hope these tips will work for you. If you want SEO services then please contact me.

Very good article I bookmarked your content

Rajesh Kumar

Thank you for sharing the list. Bookmarking and directories are very important in the process of SEO.

ATA LLC Support

If i have 5 keyword to do seo then how to manage these keywords.please suggest me some directory and social book marking sites.

Ankit Kumar Singla

@ ATA LLC Support
Dear to rank with those keywords you have to plan your daily work.
Social bookmarking and directory submission both are useful but most concentrate on blog posting. This is best way to promote the pages with targeted keywords.
For list of social bookmarking and directory submission sites you can go at

Junaid Abbas

How many social bookmarking i should use daily?? And how many directory submission should i do daily??

Ankit Kumar Singla

@ Junaid
Its depends on the competitiveness of the keywords you are trying to rank.
Basically I prefer to do 5 social bookmarkings and 10 directory submissions for a keyword in a day. But these figures are not same for all the keywords. It depends on the keyword’s competition.

Junaid Abbas

If keyword competition is high then i should do more social bookmarking and directory submissions??

Ankit Kumar Singla

@ Junaid
No dear it doesn’t mean. For a new site, you should first target low competitive keywords with high searches and do SB and DS in limited range.

Junaid Abbas

Means Per post 5 social bookmarking and 10 directory submission??

Ankit Kumar Singla

@ Junaid
Yes you can say that but remember not to submit more than 1 URL in single site.

Junaid Abbas

More than one url mean?? Can you explain this??

Ankit Kumar Singla

@ Junaid
More than 1 URL means don’t do social bookmarking in same site for same page of your blog again and again.

Junaid Abbas

For example if i have page on facebook so i can only submit my article link to facebook page or my facebook profile?

Ankit Kumar Singla

@ Junaid
Dear I am talking about social bookmarking. You can share on facebook page and facebook profile both.

Junaid Abbas

Sorry it was my mistake Ankit. I am a new blogger so there is a little bin confusion between social bookmarking and social networking sites. Can i do social bookmarking for my all posts daily??

Ankit Kumar Singla

@ Junaid
Yes you can but try to do social bookmarking for pages not posts. If pages goes popular, then your all posts will gain exposure. If you want to submit your posts also, then I recommend you to only submit most popular and important posts.
For business site, each page is important to bring business. But in blogging our homepage and HTML sitemap pages are more important. So, try to target them first.

Junaid Abbas

So i should submit my home page only to bookmarking sites?

Ankit Kumar Singla

@ Junaid
You can target your inner pages also.

Junaid Abbas

Thanks Ankit you have cleared my concept.
But reddit is now not allowing me to add more liks

Ankit Kumar Singla

@ Junaid Abbas
It happens dear. Reddit don’t allow frequent submissions.

Junaid Abbas

So i should not submit my every post to reddit?

Md Chanchal khan

yes this is a great away to increase your web/blog traffic . and thanks ankit for your nice website and best tips . hope we alltime stay with us . Thank you abdwebs

Ankit Kumar Singla

@ Junaid Abbas
I don’t recommend to do so because it will considered as spamming. Submit only most important posts.

@ Md Chanchal khan
Thanks a lot dear for your support. Please stay connected with me and my blog.
I really need readers like you.


Yes I really enjoyed your post with 100% Curiosity.. so i am waiting for Continuation of this article. Thanks lot for nice posting

devendra tripathi

thanks Ankit Kumar, i m just learning to given website and grow up our knowledge from your tutorial

@ankit .I wouldn’t understand what you want to say about not to submit more than 1 URL in single site.Again you say also submit inner pages of your website in SB.As i know same link is not submitted second time in SB (same site).Please clear this what you want to say..


We have just announces free social bookmarking website on premium domain – please visit and add our website in your exclusive top social bookmarking website list.


Ankit Kumar Singla
Dear I mean to say that don’t bookmark more than one page of your site in same SB site. If you want to bookmark another page, then use another SB site.
Inner pages also be submitted because we should also work for them to build links.

i request the author to write about the criterias to consider in selection social bookmarking sites like page rank no do follow, private or public type, activity status i.e when the last story had been published within 24 hours time or not

    Ankit Kumar Singla

    Dear selection of social bookmarking sites is very important. You must keep in mind not to submit site on low quality sites having 0 or 1 PR, not submit your links on sites having same IP address.
    Focus no follow and do follow both for bookmarking your web pages.
    Public links are the best. It’ll give you the opportunity to gain some traffic too from your submissions.
    Activity Status not matters a lot. Always keep in mind that submit only single page in one social bookmarking site to get best result.

Vivek Saini

All ON is correct
May i use Same Bookmarking sites for Different Inner page ?
Please help me

    Ankit Kumar Singla

    Dear I don’t recommend to bookmark more than one URL of same site in social bookmarking. If you have limited resource, the play with SEO. Do article submission and then bookmark those articles with your targeted keyword. You’ll surely get positive results.

Ravi Verma

Thanks Ankit Bro!!

I need one more help will you please tell me how many bookmarks is ideal for one URL in a month?? And
May i used my blog url for bookmarking using target keyword?

    Dear there is no such a limit.
    You can do as many bookmarking as you want but it must of quality not quantity.
    Remember not to do bookmarking for single keyword more than 5 in a single day.

    Yes of course you can do SB for your Homepage. Try to use multiple targeted keywords for your homepage. It’ll definitely improve your rankings in search engines.

Srinivas Prasad Jayaram

Hi Ankit

I have two doubts

1. While bookmaking the particular url what should be filled in the title field.?.

I am concentrating on a keyword ” business schools in noida”

Is it ok? if i use the exact keyword “business schools in noida” in title or should i use prefix/suffix to the keyword?

Doubt 2

U said bookmarking article post is helpful with a keyword.. how is it effective?

For ex:i wil post an article on article base and article is about business school in noida. Anchor text for that article is “business school in noida”.

is it effective?

Hello Ankit,

It was really a nice post written by you. I created a page on StumbleUpon but after submitting when i visited this page it was looking like StumbleUpon has used an iframe to show these pages. So if a user click on adsesne ad in this page wont it be the violation of adsense policy?

Awaiting your reply,
Thanking you in anticipation

I don’t use Social Bookmarking sites much, the only site i use is StumbleUpon and it helps me in driving good amount of traffic to my blog. By the way! i always used StumbleUpon to drive traffic to my blog i never thought it could be used to improve SEO.
