    Hi,

    I am pretty new to SEO, and I read that social bookmarking is important.

    The question is, why is it important? Because of the backlinking opportunities?

    So if I create tons of backlinks but I don't do social bookmarking, will google think that my tier 1 sites are perhaps spam related?

    Social bookmarking is a method of bookmarking which is posted online, catalogued with comments and "tags" and shared with your friends.

    Social bookmarking is one way to get traffic and backlinks. This is the easiest way and without the cost of some other way. However there are some things you should consider. You must create a unique description of each social bookmarking site. Choose sites with high pagerank (PR> 4). Do this manually and you will feel the results after a link was indexed.

    ''A social bookmarking service is a centralized online service which enables users to add, annotate, edit, and share bookmarks of web documents. Many online bookmark management services have launched since 1996; Delicious, founded in 2003, popularized the terms "social bookmarking" and "tagging". Tagging is a significant feature of social bookmarking systems, enabling users to organize their bookmarks in flexible ways and develop shared vocabularies known as folksonomies.''
    From wikipedia.

    BS, the toolbar PR is dead from very long time. You can find 10's of Pligg sites, where the toolbar shows PR4+, but many of them are actually deindexed or penalted.

    Posting social bookmarks on sites for bookmarks in your niche will have positive SEO effect. Posting on the major socail sites will have positive SEO effect. Creating backlinks on irelevant sites have from little positive SEO efect to no effect or even negative effect.

    You know that social bookmarking is pretty useful because it give users the opportunity toexpress differing perspectives on information and resourcesthrough informal organizational structures. This process allowslike-minded individuals to find one another and create new communitiesof users that continue to influence the ongoing evolutionof folksonomies and common tags for resources.
