    Recently, I noticed one of my quality sites taking a dive. It's a sixty article local business blog with images and articles that are unique. I do have some quality links, but wanted to refrain from reciprocal linking with related sites/businesses so I tried social bookmarks. I bought 600 socials that are dripped over 30 days.

    Unfortunately, the provider is just adding them in extremely spammy places and with random non-readable text with words from various different languages but mainly Spanish. Totally, zero value at all for me.
    What do you guys think? Am I just unlucky with this poor provider or do I need to concentrate on better quality social bookmarks and leave out the garbage?
