    I don't mean for indexing, but for ranking.

    Great way to safely introduce anchor diversity to your site (critical post Penguin). The higher PR/Authority sites do push rankings... hell, some of them even bring traffic, but the lower PR are dynamite for anchor diversity as they get indexed quite easily.

    Actually, I submit my sites to the big ones: Delicious and Diigo

    But about the smaller SB services, my doubt is that Google may consider them like link farms

    Why do people ask such dumb questions. You could have used the search bar mate.
    Yeah, they do work. All the links were if you do them right. Dont use spun content and do it manually and all will be fine.

    I'm not sure at all, it is difficult to say and I have done a lot of bookmarking. I think this is something I may do a case study on.

    Yes, they do work, if you know how to use them wisely. Plus you can get good traffic from top sites, if you have good followers(real) and if you your story is on the front page.

    Most of the bookmarking sites are not even indexed in google. The way to go is to choose the top 30-50 most popular/highest PR ones.

    Social media sites are abundant, although there are some clear front runners. One of the things that Google likes to see is that a piece of content or website is popular.That's where the social media websites like Facebook and Twitter come to the rescue. Using these sites for an immediate influx of traffic will help Google take notice that your webpage is getting visitors and traffic. This will then help you rank higher in Google's rankings.

    How can SB sites be OBL if each one of their pages is stuffed with links?

    Not all the sites, specially the top rated bookmarking sites. As, told earlier they still works if used wisely and they still hold their value in SEO and will continue to do so.

    Yeah, as long as someone else is doing the bookmarking and not you, social signals...
