Social bookmarking vs Directory submission
« on: 05-20-2010, 03:23:01 »
A while ago a lot of people were crazy about directory submission, however, recently social bookmarking has become more popular. Which method do you prefer more.

I think the same thing is now for social bookmarking.
It gives you a little traffic. That is all.

I am using both methods. I know, it can be useless, but anyway more backlinks - more rank!

Most of social bookmarking sites adding your link with "no-follow" attributes so it is rare possible to count that links as backward links by search engines, still you can get some traffic on your site through such sites. Directory links can increase your back ward links also.

Personally I faith on both.

I am not very sure about free directory links.  To improve traffic you can try the paid directory links.

I lost some money after using paid directories.  They failed to send traffic and I could not get any sign up to my business program.

Oh it’s so shabby. That’s why I never tempted to pay for directory submission. It’s not worth any penny. Submitting to directories and bookmarking manually could be so boooring and wasting time. I don’t count on both, though I do both.

I prefer social bookmarking as it dont take time to accept the articles like D.S.. But its not like that submitted to S.B. and we will get instant traffic, the topic matters, people like to see unique topic so they will see its unique and read it..

Both work to be quite honest, social is better for immediate traffic, directory submission is better for long term backlinks :)
