Social Bookmarking Etiquette
Social Bookmarking websites are a great tool for sharing useful bookmarks, information and resources, and useful for webmasters to promote their site or information at no expense. Social Bookmarking is an excellent way to bring targeted traffic to your website with little effort, too. However, bookmarking sites are only as good as the people who use them, and they are also vulnerable to spammers, who often use them as a form of free classified advertising.
When people abuse them or use bad etiquette, not only does it get very annoying for the webmaster and the other users of the site, but it can actually cause the downfall of the entire site if not kept in check. How? Quite simply because most webmasters will eventually give up in despair – after all, would YOU like to spend many hours of your precious time every week deleting spam & maintaining a site, for absolutely nothing in return?. Is it any wonder why so many webmasters simply give up & close or sell their bookmarking website?.
