Hi,

Is it still worthy to do the social bookmarking, directory submission and blog commenting?

I heard that Google Penguin update will make a bad effect on the sites that doing these?

Submitting to worthwhile directories is a good idea. Mostly paid ones.

The other two are a waste of time.

How can you prove this? How can you say this about social bookmarking and blog commenting? I want to know :)

About 15 years of experience. That's how I can say it.

If you are leaving comments on blogs for the purpose of getting links, you are not doing SEO. You are a spammer. It is one of the lowest forms of link building around. Not to mention that if the site allows people to drop links, you are probably going to be surrounded by porn links and links to sites about how to take a magic pill that will make your dick bigger. If you want to play in those neighborhoods, be my guest.

Social bookmarking sites are a total waste. They are inundated with content. 5 minutes after posting something, your post is back on page 25 making the link virtually worthless.

SEOPub, do you happen to know for sure 2 or 3 directories you might list of PM me that are excellent in quality? I used to rely on directories a long time ago, but for as much effort as you seem to put in to find and post, it seems like the links have always been very short-lived.

Social bookmarking is great for traffic, but the backlinks you get from these hold almost no power (juice).

I submit my articles along with other interesting things I find to 10 social bookmark sites a day (I have a list of 100 I use) and it drives an extra 50-100 visitors which isn't. If someone likes or upvotes my post it tends to hit an extra 400-500 views on Stumbleupon and Digg.

It's good for that, but not for backlinking.

Overdoing of every thing is risky so if you are submitting your website to high PR directories and bookmarking in quality bookmarking sites there is no risk involved but using tools to submit your website to too many low quality directories can harm the site and same is for the blog comment if your comment is worth enough and add value then there is no issue.

Social bookmarking does nothing but dilute your profile. To use social bookmarks correctly (or how I do it with GSA) would be to use them as a secondary tier. Meaning

1st Tier <<<<<<secondary tier points to 1st tier
^
^
^
2nd Tier <<<<<<secondary tier points to 2ns tier
^
^
^
3rd Tier <<<<<<secondary tier points to 3rd tier




1st, 2nd, and 3rd tiers are articles, guest posts, PBNs, and mostly contextual links with some social networking and micro blogs. All contextual.

Then secondary tiers point at tiers individually. These I use social bookmarks for indexing purposes. The list I get from Auto Approve Marketplace are pretty solid on the social bookmarking end and alot of my bookmarks get indexed. Great for indexing my primary tiers and saving money on indexing services.

Bookmarking Submission - If you have check your link after posting, then you will find that link is a nofollow links. It means link junice will not pass through this link. You will not get a backlink.

Directory Submission - These websites take long time to approve your link and most of the website spam score is high. You can try only paid and high authority website.

Blog Commenting - Its not a good way to create a backlinks and drive traffic to your website. Try to write blog yourself and make backlink from there.

In these days some people use above things and some not but as per my knowledge be careful if you are doing above things.

Personally, I just use some of the bigger social bookmarking sites like Stumbleupon and social media sites. I also do some blog commenting. I don't really submit stuff to article directories (once they got hit by the search engines) like I did back-in-the-day. While I get fewer links, I keep on top of the stuff that's going on in the various niches I'm in, so I can be one of the first ones to blog about it or whatever.

Social Bookmarking- It is not an important techniques in today's seo. If you will do, you can generate only low quality backlinks.

Directory submission- I agree with web2bizz22 Directory submission sites takes so much time to submit your website. Only paid directories submit your site on the same time.

Blog commenting- It is important to get website promotion,but only if you will not put any signature link in your comment.

Use Blog posting and article submission techniques for the promotion of your website content.It helps to get high rank for your website keywords.

Social Bookmarking is helpful if you register on high PR websites and you link remain active ever, other wise it is a totally waste of time.

Blog posting is most useful from the SEO point of view to get traffic to your website.

Like people above me told you. There are still some directories worth your time, but the majority of them don`t help your SEO in any way.

As for social bookmarking and blog commenting, in my opinion, you are wasting your time.
If you want to help your website`s SEO, you should be focusing on creating good content for your visitors. This content will attract genuine backlinks which will help your SEO more than any social bookmarking and blog commenting strategy you will employ.

In my opinion, Blog commenting and social bookmarking are still worthy in SEO rather than directory submission. But you should do social bookmarking on high DA and PA websites and blog commenting on niche related blogs. These two are still useful in order to get quality backlinks.

If you are doing social bookmarking and directory submission and you are not getting dofollow link so you are just wasting your time.

So find out high authority directory submission or local business listing and social bookmarking sites that will pass dofollow links to your site. Because if you have added your link in spamming sites your site will penalize by Google.

Well as our fellow webmasters mentioned here Social Bookmarking has no link juice but it can be easily used in High PA and DA sites to increase traffic to your website, as far as directory submission is concerned doing it in bulk is also spamming. Blog Commenting is also good way to drive traffic rather than getting backlinks
