You might all have heard the buzz about the term Social Bookmarking.
What is Social Bookmarking & Why is it so powerful and different from other web promotion tactics?
Social Bookmarking websites are basically sites that categorize and store ‘bookmark links’ (links which take one to a specific website). Millions of visitors flood these Social Bookmarking sites to search for information.
So the idea of bookmarking is to post links back to your web page from these Social Bookmarking websites. You need to specify some keywords (we call them TAGS) which categorize your bookmark.
This allows others to search and even vote for your bookmark. Social Bookmarking is in a league of its own because of its ability to generate traffic by sharing links.
Considering the importance of Social Bookmarking I had made a list of automated social bookmarking software tools (list includes free and paid tools).
Bookmarking Demon has continued to evolve and grow. Now with Version 5 the list of features is long and all inclusive. The number #1 reason why Bookmarking Demon is Number #1 is because it literally does everything you want a Social Bookmarking Software to do. It will create an unlimited number of accounts with the Top Social Bookmarking sites and you can create an unlimited number of Profiles which allows you to submit the same site to different accounts over and over. It can spider your site and then you can pick and choose what pages to submit as opposed to typing in each and every URL, Title, and Description. Then it will submit to all the top services, but you can also Spider and add an unlimited number of Scuttle and Scuttle Plus Social Bookmarking sites to the services you submit to. The best reason of all to buy this product is because it is now on Version 5 and continues to be the single best supported program of it’s kind on the web. A very all inclusive program, Bookmarking Demon is my #1 choice for Automated Social Bookmarking. I use it and highly recommended. Enough Sai
