    I created a site just yesterday and have just added a premium article that I think people in my niche will love.
    The site is perfect at the moment, and I'm excited to start promoting this post.
    I was going to start with some social bookmarks all manual, but I have no idea how much I should do.
    I'm sort of new to SEO so I don't want to screw my site up. Is there a huge penalty for getting a bunch of bookmarks in one day?
    Should I wait maybe a few more days before I do any social bookmarks?

    TL;DR if I make 500+ bookmarks to a brand new site am I going to be penalized?
    If so, should I do 10 social bookmarks a day to my article for like a month?

    Wait for 5-7 days then start bookmarks.

    I dont think you'd be penalized if u start bookmarking right away but it'd be better to wait a few days to make it appear bit natural.

    make sure u use variety of anchor texts, urls for bookmarks.

    Thanks for the help man :) Your right I'll probably wait 2-3 more days and start slow. Slow and steady seems to be what everyone thinks is the best right now. I figure submitting to social bookmarks and creating a video for the article/ submitting to video aggregators would be the safest form of exposure this early on. I'll probably start building real quality links to the article in a few weeks.

    When one of my MNS reached 20 days old, I bought a fiverr gig of 600+ bookmarks and as soon as the work was delivered, my poor MNS jumped from page 6 to nowhere in top 1000 :(
    You should not build backlinks too fast.

    @ Saradanes You didn't do any other backlinking? Maybe I'll do 10 bookmarks a day for awhile, and increase from there. Might be a good idea to make some sort of schedule.

    Wait and build links in a moderate speed .... 10 a day or so .... as you add new articles, add bookmarks and social media Likes to new articles.
    After your have 10 articles or more, buy small amount of blog posts and wiki links. Rather buy 10 to 20 quality items than 600 spammy links if your site is small imho.

    I went with 10-15 per day for one of my newer sites (Don't forget anchor diversity), and it seems to be working well. Steady climbing.
