    I'm still very new to the niche site world but have heard a few times now to use "social bookmarking" as part of the SEO/backlinking phase of your website.

    This is probably a very simple question but..do I need to have followers before I use social bookmarking? I know to do this, I'm to create a new facebook, twitter etc.. account under my website/niche name (i think) and then list my website URL under that account. Since I've just created this new social media account though, I won't have any followers/friends. Is the point to just create the account, submit your website and move on? Or if I'm supposed to generate a following of people on my new account, I'm not sure how to do that.

    Thanks for any clarification. :cool:

    You have the whole social aspect confused. Try reading around to get a better understanding, but for a quick explanation you can use bookmarks when trying to index a new domain on the search engines(to get crawled by g bots)

    Read around, there are tools and other sources where you can use these for yourself and see the benefits. Cheers.

    Maybe I've misused the term "bookmarking". I'll look further to get more knowledge about using social media to help rank your website higher.
