    Hi guys,

    i have seen plenty of threads, comments and articles talking about how social bookmarking is a great source for backlinks, even more so now since the most recent Google algo update.
    But i have never understood exactly what it is, is it as simple as creating a page on facebook and an account on twitter both with links to the website i want the backlinks for?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, if that is how you create social backlinks, would doing something such as buying fake followers and fans increase the value of the backlink to my website?

    Thanks,
    -Michael

    Social noise is now one of the main factors that any site above micro seems to need to be taken seriously, but it's not really for backlinks.

    Bookmark links have 2 purposes currently - and they are quite distinct.

    1) Social Noise. Ongoing regular evidence that people are visiting your pages and spreading your content (bookmarking it, "Like" ing it, "Digg" ing it "Stumbleupon" it etc etc"

    2) Bookmarks also make excellent lower tier indexing links. While not directly linking to your website (as most bookmarks are not held on a static URL anyway) they get your tiered links found and indexed. Good bookmarks also pass on "authority" if not actual SERP's gains

    I find a service for csocial noise drip feeding very few BM's per day to inner URL's handles the first part and
    A bookmarking tool like BMD or Nuke or Ultimate Demon handles the indexing side (as they can be created to order and with precision using these tools)

    There is a hell of a lot to know about bookmarking, how it works and why. Use my text link below and type "bookmark" into my blogs search box for some of the stuff I've written in the past.

    fake followers are mostly not going to do anything good. But it does gives the real members of good impression to follow as well.

    Bookmarking is still good for indexing our site quickly. Some bookmarks still drive traffic to your site from high PR sites like reddit and digg.
