    Could somebody please explain the Difference (if any) Between Social Bookmark Backlinks & Profiles? Possibly give examples of what each is?

    Also I've heard that these backlinks can be quite valuable, so if you could recommend a tool that would aid in getting these backlinks, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!!

    Social Bookmark = Digg, Reddit, StumbldUpon, etc. You go to these websites and submit your link with a Title/Discription/Tags/etc. These places are pretty much meant for you go to to and submit links to cool stuff you find on the internet in hopes of sharing it with others. The backlinks from almost all of these sites are n0follow and do not do much to help your site in the search engine rankings. The are useful however at getting your individual pages noticed and thus indexed. If you have a really interesting article or something that could potentially go viral, it could also get you some free traffic.

    Profiles - you sign up to be a member of a forum or online community of some sort and in your member profile, you can add your website link. These backlinks are typically d0 f0llow and can help you rank much more effectively. These links will not however get you any traffic except for maybe in some rare case when you are some kind of authority in a community.

    Thanks a million hufster! Are there any tools other than xRumer to help automate this or is this something that people typically outsource?

    Sick submitter can automate profile links. It can be cracked easily.

    I must warn you though - do not rely on profile links or social bookmarking to get you ranking. They will help, but unless you have a really easy keyword, they will not enable you to punch through tougher competition.
