Get Bookmarks for your page

Visiting several internet sites shows all kinds of little tags and signs and buggers like BOOKMARK THIS or TAG ME or something.

There are bunches of web site services which offer these things. What are they for?

First, some readers of your blog or visitors to your website may think you have some valuable content they want to save. So these very astute visitors want a thigamabob they can click to save the site.

Now some will click their Stumblr button but others use all kinds of other bookmarking tools.

That is where AddThis comes in. You have seen the button before, there is one to your left of this post.

AddThis lets your readers and visitors save, on their favorite web 2.0 bookmark location, a link to your site. This is not brain surgery and has been around for awhile, but unlike some of the other tools out there, AddThis is very easy to use and it works.

Try it here by clicking the AddThis button and seeing all the different social networks available. I like Yahoo Buzz myself.


More Free Blog Hosts

Free Blog hosts are great for..

Your first blog
Sharing information with co-workers or family
An easy to use website for hobbies or interests
A great way to build fast inbound links to your website!

Here are some more free blog hosts..

As always, some work, some are down, some are by invite only, all have terms of service which may limit your chose activity (see above), and all require registration.

Update: Many of these blog hosts are either no longer in business, no longer accepting signups or are no longer free. Some are so bizarre, I have no idea what they do!

However, there are some which are working. I set up two new blogs this morning from only the first part of the list. Try each yourself and let me know your results.


Bookmarking Links

Here is the idea behind bookmarking.

You have a website or blog post.
You go to one of these sites or include a button on your site.
And enter in your website or blog post URL.
Now the bookmarking site has a link to your site.
That is a backlink which is a good thing.
The more backlinks your site has, the higher your page rank "may" be on Google.
Some bookmark sites have a higher page rank and that is good for your page rank.

Some of these sites may be down or gone forever. I will add to it from some of my other bookmark sites I have here and there.

Almost all of these sites require registration and login to bookmark a site.

Create a login and keep it.

The fast way to submit to many social bookmarking sites is to use software or a website service to do the work for you.

The best are

BookMarking Demon - the most powerful and submits to 100+ social bookmark sites

Onlywire - easy
to use but only submits to about 20 social bookmark sites (and has been banned at some).

Social Marker - web interface, time consuming, but does build good backlinks and traffic to about 50 social bookmark sites.

Check out the list below. Some you have heard of others may be new.
