Social Bookmarks, not Social Spam

The latest online marketing trends include search engine optimization, and now we can add social bookmarking. Wikipedia defines social bookmarking as:

A social bookmarking system or network, users 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. Other users with similar interests can view the links by topic, category, tags, or even randomly.

You digging what I’m furling? Many believe in taking a client’s webpage, placing targeted keywords in the social bookmark’s title, description, and tags and submitting. They claim excellent results, massive jumps in search engine result pages, and traffic you could only pray for. Don’t believe me?  Check out this “professional” (Note spelling of his professional website name)

As Jim Rome might say, “You are to SEO, what the Uni-bomber was to the postal service, your thoughts?” You want to harness growing trend of social bookmarking?  It’s easy. Create unique content your users will actually want to share, and just make it simple for them to. Take $10,000 you’d spend on a ‘social bookmarker’ and develop something that sets you apart from the competition. Take Burger King’s lead, petmoustache.com and simponizeme.com.  You’ll be rewarded for your efforts now and in the near future, because, search engine optimization is about to change for the better.
