Work At Home – A Step Up With Social Bookmarking

By Brian Lett

Every single individual who utilizes the internet to work at home must constantly strive to outshine the competition. So how do you do this? Well, one method which is highly acclaimed is social bookmarking. Social bookmarking is one of the best, yet most underutilized methods of driving targeted traffic to your webpages. I cannot stress enough that if you are a work at home entrepreneur, you should be consistently bookmarking your webpages.

So what exactly is social bookmarking? Social bookmarking is a method by which an individual can “bookmark” online content and access it in one place (ie. a social bookmarking website). Furthermore, others who use the same social bookmarking website are also able to search and access the content which an individual has bookmarked. Thus, individuals who are interested in topics related to the content which you bookmark will too be able to search and access such content, as well as bookmark it themselves.

So how does social bookmarking work in action? Well, when a webpage is bookmarked on a social bookmarking website, a unique URL is assigned to it. This URL will link directly to the webpage. This is highly valuable because search engines tend to give a lot of weight to social bookmarking websites. Therefore, a URL from a social bookmarking website often ranks high very quickly in the search engines for relevant keywords. Additionally, since the social bookmark is pointing directly at your website, you are receiving a highly valuable one way link. As you may already know, one way links to your website are a major factor in your website’s ability to rank in the search engines.

I am sure that by now you are beginning to see the value of social bookmarking. However, I will state three of its biggest benefits. First, each time we bookmark a website, it creates a one way link pointing at our website. This gives our website authority in the search engines. Secondly, while we are building the authority of our website, the social bookmarking URL which is assigned to our website has a propensity to rank on its own due to its inherent authority. This means that we can rank for targeted keywords via the social bookmarking URL which points directly to our website. Thirdly, other users of the social bookmarking website can find out bookmarks by searching the website. This also drives targeted traffic to our websites.

An additional huge advantage which social bookmarking provides us with is the ability to quickly adjust to market conditions. Due to the relative infancy of the internet, new terms which may have meant something else in the past, take on new meaning when associated with matters online. For example, the term social bookmarking perhaps was associated with a book club which met once a week prior to it being redefined by Web 2.0. Unfortunately, such new associations are not easily picked up by the algorithms of the search engines. Thus, if you attempt to capitalize of traffic associated with such new terms, chances are that your website will fail to rank for a while. However, social bookmarking allow us to provide what are known as “tags” for our content. Tags are searchable keywords which we can associate with our content. Therefore, when someone searches the keywords which we specify, our bookmark will come up. This is true both in the social bookmarking website, and in the search engines. As you can see, this is a massive advantage for a work at home entrepreneur. Keep in mind that such massive advantages are what can separate a successful entrepreneur from an unsuccessful one.

If you Work At Home , Social Bookmarking is a valuable tool for achieving rankings in the search engines. Realize that is you wish to Make Money Online frequently, you need targeted traffic. Obtaining high rankings in the search engines will provide such traffic. Also, come and see us at
