With SEO being what it is today, it is hard to fully gauge the effects of any link building method unless you run a case study using ONLY that method. That being said, I have had a Social Monkee Premium account sitting around for quite some time. For those of you who aren't familiar with Social Monkee, it is a site that allows you to create social bookmarks on a private network on a daily basis. Recently they have upgraded their network and released it as Social Monkee 2.0. I have heard many mixed reviews about it, and I want to test its power by myself. I will be testing its power as a first tier of links. I am testing it on a fairly new site with no other backlinks built to it. I am doing this not only to test the Social Monkee service, but to test the power of Social Bookmarks in general, as I feel their value has depreciated recently. I am trying to rank an easy/medium keyword. The keywords current ranking is 0 with 0 backlinks built. I have created 200 bookmarks directly to the site's main page and an inner page today. I will continue to bookmark the inner pages on a daily basis, and report back in this thread with ranking updates if and when they occur.
