Yes. As a mobile society, many of you use multiple computers. Social bookmarking sites let you store your bookmarks online and access them from ANY computer that has an internet connection. You can share your bookmarks with friends and you can search for bookmarks based on keywords you specify for your search.

Smart business owners are adding the ability for visitors to add their websites to a variety of social bookmark sites. These icons give the user greater flexibility in saving the URL to your website and then sharing it with friends.

EVERY time a visitor adds your website to their favorite social bookmarking site they are creating a link back to your site. These backlinks will point to the page the user saved. They will usually have the page title you assigned that page as the bookmark title. The visitor has the opportunity to add a description and keyword tags to the saved bookmark. The bookmark can be made public so anyone can find it and your site or they can set it to private so access is limited.

Savvy webmasters are using social bookmarking sites like www.onlywire.com which allow them to set up and account that lets them bookmark a page on up to 22 different social bookmarking sites at one time. You must have accounts with each social bookmarking site you wish to automatically add links to which will take about 30 minutes one time.

Once you’ve joined the social bookmarking sites you wish to use, you will automatically have your bookmark added to each of them every time you add a bookmark to www.onlywire.com. This means that you will be creating up to 22 links back to your website or ANY website you add to Only Wire. When I joined OnlyWire, they only had 15 bookmarking sites and they are now up to 22. because of this, it is important for you to periodically log into your Only Wire account and visit the home page so you can join any new social bookmarking sites that have been added since you joined.

    The concept is similar to viral marketing.

    Although all the rage now i think that things will cool a little for social bookmarking sites.

    The important thing though is that business that rely on online traffic cannot afford to ignore social bookmarking in the present time

    You are correct that social bookmarking is like viral marketing because your hopes are that your visitors have friends they share their bookmarks with.

    You are also correct that the benefit social bookmarking sites provide as backlinks will diminish over time.

    Search engines will see abuse and adjust their formulas so social bookmarking sites won’t be as effective but they will still deliver some traffic AND it will be targeted traffic.

    Social bookmarking sites are easy to set up and use so they should be one small part of both online and offline website promotion.
