After your video is uploaded to Youtube and any other video sharing site, or posted into a forum or on your site or other web page, you can go and submit those links to social bookmarking sites.
This is just another way to share your video and get it out to the masses. It also increases your chances of your video appearing in Youtube and Google search results.
Each bookmark to your video or video page is a “backlink” and backlinks are seen as important in the eyes of search engines. The more backlinks a page has, the most it’s seen as important.
Here’s a list of popular social bookmarking and news sites where you can submit your pages to:
In order to submit to all these places, you’ll need to sign up and create a free account with all of these sites.
Then you’ll have to go to each site and submit each link manually to them. This can be quite tedious and time consuming.
Luckily there is a way to semi-automate your bookmarking submissions with the use of http://socialmarker.com
The great thing is that Social Marker is free to use but it does take a fair bit of time to go through and submit your links. You need to have accounts at the sites and be logged in to the sites to use them. It’s still better than going to each site manually and submitting that way.
If you want a 100% hands-free social bookmarking solution, try http://socialadr.com . With SocialAdr, you simply submit your url (your video url or any web page) once and other people who are members of that site will submit it all around the web for you.
There is a free version and a paid version if you just want to completely put your bookmarking and backlink building on complete autopilot.
