Be social, join a community, gain a following

DiggHave you heard about Social Bookmarking? Sites like de.lic.ious, StumbleUpon, Digg, and Reddit are popular for sharing your favorite sites or favorite news articles and spreading the good word on sites that are worth a look.

The thing about social bookmarking is this: it’s not really a “drop a link” solution that will help you. You might be better suited to invest your time into article marketing instead.

However, these sites can generate some traffic and create a backlink to your site. Discover, share and manage your social bookmarks. This site is not quite as active as it used to be, but can be a good way to organize your own websites that you read.

StumbleUpon: StumbleUpon brings the sites you like right to you based on your interests. Stumble your favorite sites and network. This site can potentially bring hundreds or thousands of visitors, but your content has to be exceptional. Use the Chrome Extension for Google Chrome users.

Digg: Discover and share your favorite web content anywhere, from videos to blogs to news articles.

Reddit: User-generated news links. Votes promote stories to the front page, like Digg!
