    Does social Bookmarking and pinging have any utility other than quicker indexing of articles or webpages. Speed of indexing is not important to me. Rather, I am only interested in longer term effects.

    Thanks Max

    Social bookmarking services are just another type of backlinks. And you might know that backlinks from different types of websites (web directories, blogs, article directories, wikies, social bookmarks, etc) are good for SEO.

    Social bookmarks do tend to stick well, people use them to index but they can pass on some link value, pings are just pings and only used for indexing, however! Some ping sites will appear in your backlinks, these sites are they type that provide information on a domain etc.
