Introduction

Another popular link building strategy is to social bookmark your website's pages on bookmarking sites.

Primarily this method is to allow you to keep links to all your favourite websites, or your websites in one place and share them with people. If your updates articles are interesting then the social masses will make that known!

Bookmark voting

Some social bookmarking sites also have bookmark voting that allows users that stumble across your bookmarks to recommend them to other users.

The more recommends a bookmark gets, the more visible it becomes on the bookmarking site, leading to a possible shed load of visits to your site as well!
