    Just wondering which one does better job at bringing convertible traffic to a site? I am referring to just traffic, not SEO ranking ability.

    In my opinion:

    social bookmarking

    why? well if someone finds your social bookmarks and visits your homepage they ARE interested in your page/product. Otherwise they wouldn´t have clicked on the link.

    If you "spam" untargeted forum with xrumer, well... will a fantasy-WorldOfWarcraft-guy be interested in catfood? Most definetly not.
    But that´s just my opinion. What about yours? Excited to hear other opinions, too!

    I guess I feel social bookmarks have more weight, but there are only about 500 of them, while there are endless forums out there. Maybe the sheer volume offsets the non-targeted posts.

    Some people are getting traffic to autoblogs by doing nothing other than getting the pages indexed.

    Okay, well.. that´s a really good point. Social Bookmark Networks are restricted, forums are endless as you just mentioned. So if one clicks on your link in a forum post they might also be interested in your product, at all. (or they are the mod´s checking your link ;-)).

    If you combine SB with forum posts via xrumer you will get the best results possible (instead of just using one or the other...).
