Default What Does Bookmarking Do?

In another post, there was mention of onlywire, a bookmarking site. My question is

"why do we need it?"

is it used to help get our backlinks indexed faster? If so, then is it something that should be used instead of a RSS feed or pinging a site? My backlinks get indexed within a few days. Does it drive traffic to the website? If so, how? The reason I ask "how" is because I bookmarked to a bookmarking site, "wirefan". In 10 minutes, you could not find my bookmark anymore because 20 million people are doing the same thing.

So educate me, what's the point of these sites?

Book Mark your web page among the vast book marks, It would get the juice for your web page. If you have one quality book mark certainly it will increase the traffic for your web site.

Traffic and backlinks. Traffic will likely just be a trickle but if even one visitor converts you are ahead of the game.

In addition to the links directly from the bookmarking sites, visitors who like your site may link to your site from theirs. Another big plus.

It should be done in addition to your RSS feed and pinging.

It may be good, but I've never heard of wirefan. I just stick to a couple of big ones and do get the benefits I listed. The two I hit are:

Delicious
StumbleUpon

It would also be a good idea to look for topic-specific bookmarking sites. For example, BizSugar focuses on business blog posts.

You can find more here:

Again, the results I get are not earth shattering but it takes very little time and the long term benefits are worth the effort in my opinion.

Social bookmarking is good for traffic, but not so much for links. But traffic is not bad as you are likely to get more visitors and to get some profit.

Social bookmarking websites not only get you indexed quicker but also get your traffic.

The sole purpose of getting inbound links. Not all of the services within Onlywire.com use a dofollow attribute but still some sources can generate traffic.

There's another great service that's similar to Onlywire : Ping.fm
