Social bookmarking is a powerful web marketing technique. online Social bookmarking sites allow users to maintain their favorites sites online and discuss links with others. It is a way to arrange hyperlinks to important content and discuss them with others online. It provides valuable backlinks to your website for free and is a fundamental element of an internet marketing or SEO strategy. In addition to back-links, you can target an incredible number of visitors who use Submitting of social bookmarking online sites regularly to search for information.

Publishing your weblink to a submitting of public bookmarks service generally includes using a web based form to post your weblink along with name, information and labels that explain the content. . In spite of its benefits, submitting of public bookmarks is also a very time intensive process.

This is a list of 5 social bookmarking tools that are aimed that reducing the time spent and automating your process.

1. Social Marker (www.socialmarker.com)
SocialMarker.com supports approximately 50 of the best social bookmarking sites. I have listed this first because it is the most basic tool for social bookmarking. Although social Marker does not automate the submission in anyway, it makes it easier to organise your submissions. You only enter the link, title and description once on social marker and then click on each of the bookmarking sites you wish to post to. You are redirected to the site with your link information pre-filled. You have to manually complete the submission process which typically involves signing in, CAPTCHA verification and clicking on the submit button. As you have to do this individually for each bookmarking site, it can be time-consuming. There a Firefox tool that makes it easier to post a page you are browsing.

Main Benefits:
  • Submission form is pre-filled on individual sites.
  • Leading social bookmarking sites can be accessed from a single page so there is no need to maintain your own spreadsheet.
2.OnlyWire
OnlyWire offers free and paid versions. The free version is a great tool and partly automates your submissions. I have personally used this tool for some time and it saves me a lot of time. I recommend it to others.

It however saves your usernames and passwords and allows you to post automatically. You can use a web form or Firefox plugin to submit a page. Links are posted to chosen services automatically without the need to login and submit individually. The free version prompts you from time to time for sites that require CAPTCHA verification. The paid version completes the CAPTCHA automatically without prompting you to enter it manually.

Main Benefits:
  • Free version is an excellent method for automated submission.
  • A new RSS feed tool can fetch and submit all new posts.
