Sometimes at the end of an article in a blog you will see a link that says something like this:

"Did you like this article? Put it as a favorite in"


"Digg this article"

"Put it as a favorite in ..."

Providing these links makes it very easy for readers to spread the word about your article.

Some blog owners provide a selection of social networks and links or graphics at the end of their articles.

Sites for social bookmarking:

You can see a long list of these sites here and free code that you can add to your blog template and make tagging easier.

Here is another LONG list of social bookmarking sites.

The use of a service like Technorati attracts people to your blog.

You tag your blog with a tag, such as "pet food." Any Technorati user who has subscribed to that tag will be notified every time you make a contribution on your blog about pet food.

Social bookmarking sites allow you to share your bookmarks publicly, labeling them to allow others to find them.

If the people who visit these sites decide that their pages are worth sharing, they will bookmark them and tag them so that other people can find them.

You can also share an RSS feed of your favorites. When you add a favorite, they know about it automatically.

If you take the time to create genuinely USEFUL collections of favorites, people will be more inclined to use them.

The Internet community is just beginning to realize the enormous potential of the use of social bookmarking to get high quality links to your site, from authority sites. Sean Wu explains exactly how to do it in his Tag and Ping ebook.

As Sean explains, there are basically two types of tags - the ones you put on your blog and the ones you put on social bookmarking sites.

You can create what he calls a "network of authority sites."

For maximum effectiveness, he recommends that you do both.

This is my advice: If you are going to establish "authority" pages on Social Bookmarking sites, do it carefully. It's a bit like entering a new forum where you don't know the rules. DO NOT spam those sites. Create pages that contain relevant and useful content. Then get links to those pages. Sean tells him how to do it.

It will save you a lot of time figuring out how to do it if you get Sean's book.

Sounds like a dream, right? You put a text on your site and 440 newspapers quickly link to your blog.

Is that how it works...

Technorati has teamed up with the Associated Press (AP). First, you put a comment on your blog about an AP news item. When readers visit an AP member who uses AP Hosted Custom News, they will see a module presenting the AP articles "The Five Most Blogged" just to the right of the article text, dynamically managed by Technorati.

"Additionally, when readers click on an AP article, Technorati will return 'Who's Blogging About' that article. Now, if you have a comment about an AP story, you can get them to mention you in that module, simply linking to the AP news URL, "says Technorati.

Here are the details: Please note: The "Top Five Most Blogged About" box is VERY SMALL. The biggest emphasis is on the name of your blog, (NOT the title of your last comment). So, to get full advantage of this, you need a name for your blog that truly captures attention.

48 - Web positioning advice and increased visits # 48 - Upload your photos. Tag your photos.

As Technorati says, if you want your photos to appear on the Technorati 'tag pages, join Flickr or Buzznet, two online photo sharing communities, put your photos there. "Simply label them and set them public

and will appear on the Technorati Tag pages. "

Sometimes, if you are doing a search on Google, links to photos uploaded to Flickr will appear in the search results, due to the keywords in the caption. Here are all kinds of possibilities for the promotion of your site.

If you explore tagging, bookmarketing and social networks, you will see that one link leads to another, and another, and another ...
