    Sorry if this is way way way too basic of a question, but I have a question regarding bookmarking.

    Is it best used to bookmark your website directly... or is it a tool that is best used by bookmarking your primo backlinks? And are "social bookmarks" better or more powerful or even any different than what people refer to as just "bookmarks"?

    Thx guys :p

    There's no such thing as a dumb question. You're talking about social bookmarking. This is used for SEO and to make it easier for visitors to backlink to your website. Also you mean by bookmarking to your browser which is just bookmarking so you can visit the websites from your own browser. This information is only stored on your PC; whereas the social bookmarking is stored on an RSS server.

    So is social bookmarking used best as direct backlinks to your site to increase pr or is it best used with your site's backlinks to increase their indexing and credibility with big G?

    You can use social bookmarking to backlink both your money sites and your tiers of backlinks. Generally you need content of a decent quality to get your links on social bookmarking sites to stick, so regardless of whether you are linking to a money site or a web 2.0 feeder site, you need to be submitting content that is not totally crap quality.

    Social bookmarking links (especially from d0follow sites) are considered to be quite powerful and high quality links - they have a lot of PR / link juice going through them, the SE spiders spider those sites regularly, and those links also add to your social or "freshness" factor. As such, they're suitable to pointing directly to your money sites, whereas the popular wisdom says that spammier links (like forum profile links) probably aren't.

    So you direct your spammy backlinks to social bookmark pages that then link to your money site?

    That's the way most people suggesting doing it. Personally I have always had good success pointing spammy links towards money sites, but I always make sure I get a good volume of high quality links and some decent rankings first. YMMV.
