    So I've had an idea for a long time now for a niche social bookmarking site I want to build. I think it would be a big earner, but I would need it to rank.

    All of the big social bookmarking sites get less than 10% of their traffic from searches, most of which is probably people searching for that site specifically, so these sites obviously don't rank well. Is it all the outgoing links that makes this happen?

    Is it possible to build a bookmarking site that ranks really well? I'd really appreciate some input on this from my fellow brothers. Thanks.

    We had one social bookmarking site related to design and we ranked it.
    But bigger issue was to drive initial traffic of users who will submit content.
    Fot that you need to invest a lot in paid ads to get people to your site and next to it you need to have VA who will bookmark on your site all day with different accounts, so it looks like real busy social site.

    It's not small investment to set all that.
