Make Money Social Bookmarking

Social bookmarking is a great tool to get your article or blog read by a lot of people in a short amount of time. Driving traffic to your blog is good and all, but you want to make sure you have great content that will keep people on your site and hear what you have to say. When you post your blog or article on a social bookmarking site, it would do you well to make sure that the article is eye catching and well written. A boring layout will probably get you skipped over as people surf through the pages available at the site you have submitted to in their attempt to find something interesting to read.

How To articles are a good way to go if you are looking to catch somebody’s interest. Write a how to article on a subject that is popular and submit it to a social bookmarking site. If the article engages the reader, they will be likely to check out the rest of your blog for more great content. Be sure to be informed on the subject you are writing about so you can earn your readers’ trust. Be simple with your instructions, so the average reader can follow easy. Put some humor in your article and relate it to your own life for a more enjoyable read. These simple steps can raise your article from a dry ill informed attempt at getting a few hits on your blog into something that people might find useful and want to link to from their own websites. Top ten lists are also popular. Lists are quick and easy reads for someone looking to waste a little time surfing around the internet. Think of your favorite movies and delve into what makes them interesting to you. If you are into a movie or book series, make a list of the top ten humorous moments in that particular series. Lists work well with humor, but they can be informative as well. Write a blog about your top five favorite restaurants in your city and submit it. The key is to write great content and people will want to keep up with you.

You can have all the great content in the world, but nobody will read it if you don’t catch their eye instantly. A great title to your piece or an image that really pops will be a tremendous help in keeping your readers from clicking past your article. Grab their attention and let them know quickly what they are in for with your title and first few sentences. If it’s good, they will want to stick around and read the rest of your article, which could translate into new readers for your site. Once again, the content is what keeps them there. Having a funny image with a killer caption is great for those who are skimming, but it won’t translate into long term readers or back linkers.

Have someone else post your article to the social bookmarking site. You can post all the content you want, but it is much better if other people do it for you. Have a link to the social bookmarking site of your choice on your page and have a few friends click the button to submit you to that site. Some social bookmarking sites look down on people posting their own content and it will eventually get you kicked off. When you have a few friends or family voting for your blog, you have a much better chance of being noticed on the social bookmarking site and having it voted on by other users, driving your content up to the front of the page.
