There are so many people submitting links to the social bookmarking websites daily rather hourly . Each 20 second social bookmarking websites are flooded with new submissions. The Big Daddy Google is intelligent enough to determine which are quality backlinks and which aren’t . Many would conflict with the me on this point but according to my analytics , the backlinks builded up from Social Bookmarking websites are just another links for Google. The weightage carried by Google in determing the PR and SERP is quite less in the case of bookmarking websites. Google knows that anyone can submit their links and it is not a natural way but an ARTIFICIAL one and it’s intelligent alogorithm doesn’t give much weightage. So, even if its a PR9 Social bookmarking website, Google gives the backlinks builded on it a heck as they are all artificial and user submitted.

      Yeah it is but still it’s great for pinging but for link building, I don’t think it gives authority links. Traffic is just the reason I submit my posts to social bookmarking websites.

      Jan, social bookmarking is quite confusing. Google is even confused whether to give it weightage or not.

    i don’t really agree that google is so smart enough that it can distinguish which backlinks are artifically bookmarked while others are not…
    but overall, a nice post buddy!
