Another automated backlinks tool I want to tell you about is a fully automated piece of software called RSS Bookmarker. I’ve been using this software on a lot of my niche blogs and web sites over the last 12 months, and have seen the backlinks to my sites from Web 2.0 sites (like Del.Icio.us, simpy.com, faves.com and a whole bunch of other high PR sites) steadily increasing.
Social bookmarking is fast becoming the main source of traffic for lots of my niche sites, as they are supplying a lot more power and traffic to my sites than even Google. I still get good traffic from Google, but when you compare the number of visitors Google gets each day, to the number of visitors to all the Web 2 bookmarking sites – it’s amazing. The Web 2 sites get over 4 times as many visitors.
So by using social bookmarking tools to promote your sites, you get access to all this extra traffic. And one of the “side effects” is that your sites get increased link popularity (due to the extra backlinks from these Web 2 sites) so they get better rankings in the search engines. So you can’t lose.
And a third benefit is that any new website you launch gets crawled and indexed by the search engines (Google in particular) a lot faster when it gets bookmarked.
So what has all this got to do with RSS Bookmarker?
Well, this software tool will automatically post the links to your sites across all the major social bookmarking sites on auto-pilot. And if you set it up for your wordpress based sites, it will automatically add links to your social bookmarking sites every time you add a new post to your blog. So all you have to concentrate on is adding the content to your site – RSS Bookmarker will take care of bookmarking your new posts.
One of the cool feature I really like is that it will gradually post your links across all the social bookmarking sites over time, so it looks much more natural too the search engines – with no fear of your posts looking like SPAM.
This feature alone is very powerful – gradual and automatic posts to as many bookmarking sites as you wish.
It also works with unlimited sites – so no matter how many sites you are promoting, you can promote them all the RSS Bookmarker. I currently have it working on a total of 37 wordpress based niche sites, and 17 “static” sites. You can create different projects within the software, which helps to keep everything organized – which means adding multiple sites like this is a snap.
Every time I check the traffic logs for my sites, I see more and more traffic coming from social bookmarking sites, and this is the only social bookmarking system I use – so I know it works.
You install the software on a server, which means it will be up and running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, posting your links.. You don’t need a dedicated server – in fact I have mine running on a VPS account which costs $30 a month. As it’s not a PC desktop application, it also means you don’t need to worry about having your PC running 24 hours a day.
If you’re looking for extra ways to drive targeted traffic to your sites, and you want to take social bookmarking to the next level, I can’t recommend RSS Bookmarker enough.
