Why should Social Bookmarks be part of my traffic campaign?
Social Bookmarking sites have an intrinsic advantage over search engines and other bots — people choose what to bookmark rather than relying on a program to categorise and qualify content. There is an implied quality in something that someone has taken the time to select. Social Bookmarker’s read other people’s bookmarks and add them to their own if they like them. There are also RSS feeds so people can see what others are tagging, which I think is really cool, and a textbook example of viral marketing.
