    I'm not sure if it's something to do with the new Google roll out or not but for some odd reason my social bookmarks are not showing up in Google after a week of being created?

    Anyone got any ideas?

    I find that while they don't show up in G, they ARE computed in the results. I made a site for a non-competitive keyword and did a 300 bookmark package over in the offers (and that's it). I showed up on page 1 for my keyword within two days. At that point I made other links to push it up to #1.

    I roll my profile links into RSS feeds and submit them, ping the feed and social bookmark the feeds.

    One thing I found out the hard way was to make sure that user profiles are viewable by non-users. I harvested a ton of forums with Scrapebox and started making profiles. Several of them weren't getting indexed despite my best efforts. I went back and checked them and I wasn't able to access the profile unless I was logged in. If you can't access it, then the spiders can't access it and it will never get indexed.

    Most bookmarks sites are nofollow

    I did notice your Dr. Syn avatar the other day. We may be the only two around here that no him.

    So social bookmarks alone are no longer an effective method for getting your site indexed?
