Default Social Bookmarking Not Helps Me. What About You.?

For a new site i started doing ON page work vigorously without using black hat SEO. The site started to rank for few keywords in top 10, 20 and 30.
After finishing ON page work i started to focus on Off Page work. I started to use social bookmarking submission for my site to get index as fast. But when i checked after a week for my site keywords which is already ranked by doing ON page is no where in Google.
I could experience only after i doing social bookmarking submission for my site. Since i can't get back my results.
Do you still think that social bookmarking helps in ranking the site.

Hi Noah. As far as I know, social bookmarking still works. I try to do it regularly as part of my routine.

So you're saying that you're no longer ranking for those keywords you were initially ranking for? I believe I read somewhere that Google will give a boost to new websites, but that doesn't last forever. Can anyone else verify this?

It depends on the competition for which keywords are you looking for to rank up your site. Now a days seo is becoming more harder. You've to work virally, not only rely on Social bookmarking. For me social bookmarks still works, i use it to index my tier2/3 links.

Hi Noah,

Social bookmarking is still effective but it also depends on the kind of businesses. It is all about trying your hand at all methods and eliminating those methods that do not work for you.

It will never work until you are targeting primary keyword. Rather than, use keyword phrase instead of primary keyword.

Default Social bookmarking

It depends on the number of links your competitors have, if you have entered a very competitive field then it is going to take a long time to make any progress.

Either you are using keywords with lots of users or you submit your back links to low quality social bookmarking sites; or both. Either of the two can fail you.

If they are quality sites and allowing users to share links with unique contents then these sites work. Try to find out high PR quality social bookmarking sites. Avoid as much as low quality junk sites, they won't work.

I too experienced the same thing. I was doing SEO for a new project. I did complete ON page work with good content and keyword. After a week i could see my site keywords are ranking in 1st page. I felt happy. After that i started to do off page optimization, my keywords went back. I am very much in confusion what work i must do inorder to bring in top.
