Was it worth the $35? Did you see an increase in your SERP or traffic/conversations?

Not arguing with you, genuinely interested.

If there is a SERP's effect, maybe we could all bookmark each other sites!

If you bookmark your content in all these sites you can build a lot backlinks over time. For the purposes of backlinks, you want to make sure that the bookmarking sites provide a real, do-follow link.

While submitting in any social bookmarking sites makes sure of these 2 things -
* It dont not use domain redirection
* It don use rel=”nofollow”

Our own moderator David Wallace has an excellent blog post relevant to this topic:

When Submitting to Social News Is a Complete Waste of Time

From the article:
Quote:
Submitting stories, blog posts and articles to social news sites such as Digg, Mixx, Sphinn and others can be very time-consuming but if done properly, can also have huge payoffs. Why then do so many people shoot themselves in the foot by not following proper etiquette?
Excellent article. I highly recommend reading this - especially point #5! -- before embarking on a campaign of "link building" via social news sites.

The investment was absolutely worth it. Picked up on average 100 extra uniques per day for three days. Conversion rate was bit lower (.5% vs 2% normally) but it still translated into more profit than expenditure. The OP mentioned a nice jump in traffic. The topic of my e-comm site is not exactly earth shattering or overly enticing. I am not sure of the value of the linkbacks and I canot tell you if there was any noticeable jump in SERP as I am working on other things. I think its important to have a variety of links coming from many sources. My favorite loophole is blog reviews from higher PR sites. You have to be careful whom you get to do a review. Not that you will get penalized but you could spend money for nothing. You also don't want to many blog links showing up at once. Mix it up with directory submissions, related website link exchanges, BBS signatures, articles, social bookmarking sites and good content and you'll have a winner.

I am very weary of any of those bookmarking, link building websites. My company was paying about 50 bucks a month for backlinks. It was great at first and after about 5 months we dropped off of Google entirely. It took almost 6 months after stopping the program for our ranking to come back.

If it seems to good to be true, it probably is. Google and other Search Engines will find out about them and either reduce the importance of those backlinks or penalize you.

Default Relationships Matter

The bump that you get from submitting your site is likely to be a one time increase unless you are finding ways to engage your visitors and build relationships...it is easy to get excited when you see your numbers increase, but if you haven't really utilized the "social" part of social media, then it will be a one time increase.

From their $35 package:

The Package is designed to submit your site to 125 High PR Social Sites and you`ve choice of 3 unique titles & 3 unique keywords / tag option.

I've used them and they are timely with their projects.
The price for this service seems reasonble and I might give it a try.
