Social Bookmarking As An Aggressive And Acceptable Blog Marketing Tactic

Social Bookmarking As An Aggressive And Acceptable Blog Marketing Tactic

Social bookmarking websites are becoming more and more popular. They allow you​ to​ save bookmarks online and Tag/Categorize them with keywords instead of​ saving them as​ bookmarks in​ the​ favorite's list of​ yourbrowser. This is​ particularly useful when your browser based bookmarks have become unwieldy. It's also help since you​ can access your bookmarks from any computer where you​ have an​ internet connection.

I have compiled a​ list of​ Social Bookmarking websites from a​ number of​ sources. you​ can find it​ here:

Once you​ have bookmarked them,​ you​ can view them,​ sort them by category/keyword as​ well as​ see links from others that have been categorized like yours.

You also establish RSS feeds for each category (tag) that you​ 'subscribe' to. This alerts you​ to​ new links in​ your areas of​ interest. Your bookmark collection/RSS Feed becomes viewable to​ others who can also copy your bookmarks to​ their own collection. So now you​ can aggressively promote your RSS feed to​ the​ RSS Directories and Search engines,​ syndicate them and make them available to​ a​ much wider audience.

Social bookmarking sites also help you​ to​ meet other people who are interested in​ the​ same topics you​ are and who may also have knowledge of​ web resources that you​ don't.

On Social Bookmarking sites,​ you​ first create an​ account. Then you​ bookmark interesting and useful things in​ the​ area of​ your interest or​ expertise. By doing so you​ create a​ useful Feed. Once you've done that you​ intermittently,​ (or aggressively),​ add useful and interesting items,​ (that could use additional exposure),​ from your own content. Make an​ honest effort to​ contribute USEFUL information and links. This is​ all about sharing and exposure. Done properly,​ you​ can be as​ aggressive as​ you​ want to​ be about sharing information. you​ can share your blog(s),​ links to​ your informational/resource sites etc. Think about the​ fact that when you​ share links to​ other's resources,​ you're also effectively promoting their content as​ well.

This is​ a​ way you​ can aggressively and ethically promote your content and the​ content of​ others. I personally have hundreds of​ gigabytes of​ my own information and information of​ others,​ connected to​ my notebook. in​ the​ final analysis,​ it's doing me no good what-so-ever just sitting there. But by organizing it,​ online,​ I can help myself,​ (getting organized,​ getting my content exposed,​ etc.) and help others at​ the​ same time.

If you​ spice up your feed with too much sales and marketing related or​ self promotional stuff,​ people can and will easily drop their subscription to​ your feed. And instead of​ gaining good will and doing a​ service to​ the​ internet community you​ could get labeled as​ a​ spammer and suffer the​ consequences.

So while being aggressive is​ possible and acceptable,​ being careful to​ consider the​ best interest of​ the​ community is​ certainly warranted.

Balancing being ethical and providing a​ useful service to​ others with promoting your own content enables you​ to​ be as​ aggressive as​ you​ like. But remember,​ in​ the​ final analysis,​ others will make the​ decision on​ whether it's ethical and useful or​ spam.
