Here is the answer for the people who ask what’s next after publishing blog posts – “Social Bookmarking Sites”. This is something different than posting on Facebook or tweeting on Twitter; these are something that falls under core ‘Bookmark’ service. You can pick a category and submit your blog link under that. Social bookmarking is good for blog promotion, people usually pick the ones that have good PageRank (PR) and now good Domain Authority (DA). In this article, I’m mentioning the ones we follow for promoting Slashsquare Network blog posts. We arranged them in the order that we use and not by any ranking.
Why Should We Use Social Bookmarking Sites?
This is something most of us are confused about; I’ll share three simple reasons why you should:
1. Targeted Traffic: You will not be randomly submitting the link, but instead, you will pick a category related to the content and submit the link to that, so the traffic will be targeted.
2. Free Backlinks: Oh, did I mention, these are the best free social bookmarking sites list, so you just have to share your link, and you’ll be blessed with a decent number of backlinks to boost your website’s rankings. This cover your blog’s SEO (Search Engine Optimization) as well.
3. Brand Boost: Being active on bookmarking sites will give you a good social exposure and boost your brand.
