    What is the point of social bookmarking anyway

    You just get a huge surge of traffic that don't convert

    Does it really boost your ranking

    yes, I use it for indexing backlinks and also the money site. I've ranked in easy niches with just using 100 social bookmarks..

    never seen any traffic from the bookmarks though...

    Lets just say your missing out if your not bookmarked and you can't say the traffic will never convert as it depends on what you are offering.

    1. More links going to your site.

    2. Increasing link diversity (since it is coming from different places)

    3. More coverage for web 2.0

    I never use social bookmarks with and intention to get traffic. I look at it as a good and quick way to get indexed. SBM also helps with ranking, especially if you are working on an easy keyword.

    For the high quality social bookmarks, people still get good traffic especially if they have followers on their accounts. It works like Twitter in a way or another.

    Bookmarks are a great way to get backlinks to your site.

    When using automation tools, that is really the main purpose.

    When I do manual social bookmarking it drives traffic. i have some sits that run solely on social bookmarking traffic
