Old-fashioned bookmarking can be defined as using a marker (even a piece of paper) to bookmark your place in a book that you are reading. With the advancements in technology the term bookmarking has carried over into the realm of the world wide web and is used to help individual be able to go back to a website that they found useful or interesting. Until recently, the best way to go back to a website that you discovered was to bookmark it and categorize it or save it to your “favorites” in your web browser. The biggest problem with this type of bookmarking is that it is private and only available on your personal or desktop computer.
There are billions of web pages on the net, over 15 billion to get a little bit more precise, and probably several million or even billions with useful information. It would be impossible to bookmark or add all of these sites to your favorites. What has come out of the need for knowing more and needing a place to store it and a way to find it again is social bookmarking. One of the most trafficked sites del.icio.us is a social bookmarking site that lets users tag any website that they desire and further they are able to share these websites with friends, family and colleagues.
There are different sites that allow for social bookmarking but one of the most popular and easy to use sites is del.icio.us. To get started with del.icio.us you just register online at del.icio.us, save the del.icio.us button and “tags” button in your button bar and “voila” you are ready to be on your way to social bookmarking. Once you tag a site you will be prompted to add more tag words so that you and anyone who is in your social network will be able to access and use your bookmarks. There is so much information out there on the Internet and it has become very important to filter out the good from the bad and save time by using these social bookmarking tips.
The social media marketing explosion has made social bookmarking all the more necessary. Your bookmarks not only help you and other people but they also play a major factor in organic optimization and online buzz marketing.
