I'm experimenting with Social Networking for my new art blog. I have WordPress with the Socializer plugin. I actually bookmark my own posts to the most popular sites, and I haven't had anything snowball yet (I'm usually the only person who votes on it) I'm getting double-digit numbers of hits from these social sites. Since my blog is designed to be sticky (daily content) I am hoping that the people I pull in from the social sites will come back, and start voting the content in themselves.

Still, I'm new to the process. Am I doing it right? Is that a reasonable expectation?

yea, i also have similar experience. when you digged your article to DIGG, your article will put ont he "newest item".
Mostly Digg will sort the article search Ascending from newest to older.
So your article will mostly got click if you new digged to DIGG.

nice. A buddy of mine had an article hit the home page of Digg and was receiving 250 visitors per minute (so he says) and his servers were shut down because of it...lol

The point is...make sure you are ready to receive a boat load of traffic, in case it happens.

Hi everyone

Does anyone know of a social bookmarketing tool that will allow one to post to many social sites with just 1 click of a button?

Janice - why would you want a tool for this? The puropose of social bookmarking is so that your readers can pick/choose which site they want to submit your content to.

Most social bookmarking sites have a captcha style code that you need to type in on submission. Which will pretty much stop all computers and there for autosubmitters.

Hi Britopian

I know of one site that allows one to do so... it links to about 10 to 15 social sites such as de.licio.us and so forth.

However, it is not very stable. With 1 click, sometimes, it's linked to only 5 sites, as an example

Cheers
Janice (Internet newbie)

PS> When you mentioned you like my bookmarking tool, which are you referring? Maybe you can drop me a PM and we'll chat?... U can see that I'm a total newbie on this..

700 hits in two hours? I would be making sure I did not have someone using a denial of service attack or a malicious bot attacking my site.

Q...

Default What are social networking sites?

Hi!
I'm new to all this...what is social networking and where are the sites? Do you write about any topic that is of interest to you? I have been told by my mentor to write about business, but frankly that just bores me, even though I have joined an internet marketing business. But I'll do what I have to do to make it work! But if there is an alternative to writing business articles, that would be great. I'd appreciate any help and and/or advice!
