What is bookmarking?

The act of saving a website address for future reference is known as bookmarking. This can be done either on an internet browser, such as Google chrome or Mozilla Firefox, or through a dedicated social bookmarking site such as Pinterest, instagram etc.

Increased domain authority

Search engines give a lot of importance to high authority site, therefore submitting link or content on social bookmarking sites help to get link from different authority sites, which in return improve our own domain authority.

Builds strong social signals

Once you have gained the trust of your prior visitors, through bookmarking quality and relevant content, you are likely to generate more web traffic, resulting in increased popularity of your website. Additionally, since search engines use data from social sites to determine your website's ranking, the more social recommendation your contents receive, the more referral traffic you get resulting in more authority leading to high ranking on search engines.

Improved interaction with fellow bloggers

Bookmarking a link would not be beneficial if there is no active interaction with the readers. It is important that you get involved in a conversation, ask questions, reply to comments, as it will help to understand the loop holes if any and also improve interaction with fellow bloggers.

Increase in number of subscribers

The more interesting content you post on these bookmarking sites, the better is the chance of acquiring valuable traffic and if readers find the content useful, they are more than likely to subscribe to your blog, resulting in high-quality traffic.

Targeted traffic generation

In social bookmarking sites, you can search for anything of your choice just using a tag or a keyword. Suppose you are interested in "movies", you could just type the keyword "movie" and it will provide you with a list of sites. This can be helpful as you can add multiple tags or keywords to your link based on their categories. This will ensure that only interested people are visiting the website, thereby reducing bounce rate.
