    Just want to share my experience that few days ago I got banned by propeller by submitting blog about amazon product. Propeller will check every submission and will ban you if you submit page mentioning to sell something (such as landing page and page full of ads).

    If you haven't notice yet please read propeller's TOS before submitting your site. Once you get banned all your site that you've submit there will be banned also. I hope my experience will useful for others.

    Please share your experience about what to and NOT to in propeller or other social bookmarking website.

    I have been banned many times from it.but before we get banned i think the bookmark serves its purpose by boosting your ranking.

    Doesn't really matter. just make a new account, and resubmit your content. you might want to make your landing page a little better if that was the problem.

    I have been banned Propeller and other places like Digg many times. Just gotta create more accounts ans spread out your submissions over mutiple accounts.

    Interesting. I've been submitting sites to here for a long time and never gotten banned. I must not be pushing it as hard as others, but I have submitted hundreds of url's for a single site.

    What I find really irritating with Digg is that they ban your IP.
    And I don't submit more than 1 time 1 url / day.
    But somehow it gets banned sometimes and then I need to either go through a new IP or give up on digg.

    That's why you use masses of proxies for any sort of advertising on social sites.
    They don't want you to advertise, you don't want your work removed.
    Each post = new account = new IP + removed cookies and you will just lose a small fraction of your work (and backlinks/articles)

    I never said I don't know how to do it, it was just that its irritating.
    Also Proxies are always so slow if we don't pay for private ones.

    If you haven't been banned from Propeller - you're doing something wrong, or should I say right?

    I got an idea. Submit some un-submitted URLs of your competition then purposely get banned.

    When you create new accounts, are you doing anything before you go back - such as changing IP address, deleting cookies, etc? Or do they not seem to track any of that stuff?

    of course. if you don't, they'll ban your IP really fast.
