With the Social Bookmarking system, users can store lists of Internet resources that they find useful. These lists can be accessible to the public by users of a specific network or website. Not only can you save your favorite websites and send them to your friends, but you can also look at what other people have found interesting enough to tag. Most social bookmarking sites allow you to browse based on a certain category like shopping, technology, politics, blogging, news, sports, etc., and usually they allow you to vote on the submitted link , or story which will in term show the No of readers whom visit your site.
Social bookmarking and social news allow you to specifically target what you want to see. Instead of going into a search engine, typing something in, and then searching for that needle in a haystack, you can quickly narrow down the items to what you are looking for. It's pretty easy to tell that the article with a hundred votes might be your best choice. You no longer need to look through thousands of results to find your subject of interest. Now, you can simply go to a social bookmarking site, choose the category or tag that matches your interest, and find the most popular websites.
Most social bookmarking services allow users to search for bookmarks which are associated with given “tags”, and rank the resources by the number of users which have bookmarked them. Its increasing popularity and competition have extended the services to offer more than just sharing bookmarks, such as commenting, and rating and the ability to import and export, add photo, reviews, story, email links. Creating groups with your own follower, send notification and also provide feed subscription.
Social Bookmarking can bring immediate traffic to your website, as web 2.0 community websites such as Digg, Reddit, Stumbleupon & Delicious provide almost immediate information on various topics. These type of Bookmarking sites index and categorize content usually faster than the major search engines. People looking for the latest information on certain topics usually refer to these types of services. The benefit is two fold. They provide immediate traffic from like-minded targeted viewers but also powerful back links to your sites that bring positive SEO and Search Engine results.
