    I know it is said to be done to index stuff quicker but is there any other point to it?

    they have to be do-follow for that though right? Are the majority of social bookmarking sites do-follow or not?

    Yea most are no-follow. They can be good for traffic but only if you game the system.

    I social bookmark to get my more important links noticed and to add a bit of juice to some higher tier links which then link to my money site. On it's own, social bookmarking won't give you much, it's just another piece of the puzzle.

    Getting some instant traffic. Getting indexed is not really a big deal.

    They don't do much anymore except help you get indexed. One thing that can happen though is if you use the right tags for it sometimes it will get picked up by websites that aggregate from bookmarking sites. So sometimes you'll get some nice little bonus backlinks.

    I was searching around an apparently there are lists of do follow bookmarking services: http://d0follow.info/d0follow-social-bookmarking-networks/

    (replacing 0 with o)

    Is that still viable? I'll give them a go. I'll try inputting them into magic submitter when I get the inclination.

    Search engines will find those links faster if you social bookmark them
