Using the power of over 1,000,000 searchers

Saturadays post: A tip or a tool that I have found useful.

Social Bookmarking Sites

 There are several advantages to belonging to a site like one of the popular social bookmarking (Wikipedia) sites on the web.

The first is that if you have a major crash or buy a new computer the bookmarks that you have gathered over time are not lost. The second advantage is you can search the bookmarks of all the members of the community which in the case of is over 1,000,000 members. The third is that you can put a number of tags (labels) on each bookmark that you can use to find a site that you have saved long ago that make sense to you. So a site for music that you want to save you could tag it with the site name eg. Pandora and add tags for music, online, radio or any other tag that makes it easy for you to find it again when you need it. is not the only social bookmarking site on the web. Web 2.0 Directory : eConsultant has a list of 54 sites. Read/WriteWeb has a good post comparing some of the different sites, well worth the read.

Although is not as useful as it once was, it is still good to have one. Social Networking sites right now are one of the most powerful internet marketing strategy that we have today, with hundreds of millions of users logging in and out everyday. Everyone should use it.
