What is Social Bookmarking?

Social Bookmarking is similar to saving a website to your favorite’s folder on your internet browser. The difference is social bookmarking allows you to save your favorite websites to a virtual folder which you can then share with friends and/or the general public. When submitting a website to be bookmarked you are asked to properly associate keywords (also known as “tags”) and an appropriate description of the website. This allows the social bookmarking websites to properly organize the collection of website submissions.

    - Using proper internal linking strategy (how you internal pages link to each other).
    Without the use of organic SEO for your website, the search engines will either not index the web pages at all or may take a
    longer time than needed to index the page. If a website
    is designed in such a way that it supports all the basic and advanced SEO factors then the chances of getting top rankings on major search engines increases a lot.
