Yeah right. Actually it’s more like 100+ social bookmarking sites in about 15 minutes. How you ask? By using the free services of a great little site called SocialMarker.com and if you haven’t heard of this site before, and you own a blog or two, then you better hop on over and create an account before they start charging for their services.
I first read about SocialMarker.com back in late June on DatMoney.com, which was around the time Veronica and I were conceptualizing this blog, and I knew at some point I wanted to try out a mass bookmarking service of some kind because we all know how time consuming it is to keep up with all these toolbars, usernames and passwords all in the name of blog traffic. So over the last month I’ve been dabbling with SocialMarker.com and seeing whether or not half of these social bookmarking sites are worth my time, or just another means of feeding social addiction. So what do I think?
SocialMarker.com kicks some serious ass!
The most time riddling aspect of using a service like this is setting up the accounts – but who really needs to use all 100+ social bookmarking sites to benefit from the potential traffic and backlink juice? If you need some help getting started, or are a little overwhelmed by the whole shebang, follow these steps below and you should be on your way:
- Go to SocialMarker.com and set up your account. If you have questions, click here to find your answers.
- Decide which social bookmarking services you would like to use, aside from the ones you already belong to. I suggest starting off with 10-20 sites and work your way up as you become more comfortable with mass bookmarking.
- Click and drag the button they provide into your browser toolbar. When you want to blast a site to all your bookmarking services, select the text and click the SocialMarker button to pre-populate and submit. Super easy!
- If you looking for an all-in-one bookmarking plugin for WordPress, they’ve also taken care of that as well. Just copy and paste the code they provide into your WordPress template and you’re good to go.
TheAtHomeCouple.com has been up and active for roughly a month and we’ve already had over 500 unique visitors, 10 subscribers via RSS, and new friends passing by every single week. SocialMarker is one of the main reasons why we are doing so well so early on and if you’re really serious about your blog, and already use social bookmarking and social networking as means of promotion and traffic, than this is for you.
If any of you already use it, I’d love to hear some feedback.
