Top 30 “A to Z” Social Bookmarking Sites for Designers

Social bookmarking is an essential part of any online business, because it spreads relevant content related to your products or services throughout sites from your chosen niche. Today, we’re going to browse through a collection with 30 of the most relevant bookmarking websites for web and graphic design.

You should make sure that the information related to your services/products reaches people working or interested in the same domain, so that your website traffic increases and so do valuable backlinks. The external metadata generated by titles, tags and descriptions from bookmarking is relevant to search engines. So basically, the descriptive content of a website yielded by users non-related to its coding or marketing can be extremely powerful in determining its relevance and quality.

Why is social bookmarking valuable to search engines?

  • Indexing websites faster: People usually promote friends’ newly launched sites before bots or crawlers can reach them.
  • Deeper indexing: Through social bookmarking, pages located deeper into a website (that don’t necessarily have links on external pages) are revealed.
  • Evaluating quality: A high number of bookmarks from multiple services and users linking to a website is a better indicator of the quality of its content.
  • Number of votes: Also, if a page receives a high number of votes via multiple social bookmarking sites, it usually insures quality and reliability.
  • External meta data: Descriptions generated by users and not the owner or marketing department of a websites insure valuable and unbiased opinions.
  • Co-citation: The tags inserted by users when bookmarking a website are used by search engines to identify subject similarity and classify it among its relevant peers.
  • Categorization: Similar to the above mentioned co-citation, categorization relies on tags to improve handling searcher intent.

    The internal measurements come in at 47 inches wide, 25 inches deep, and 71 inches in height, and the external measurements are 56
    inches wide, 32 inches deep, and 77 inches tall, making for a shed that offers
