Social bookmark trading is nothing new, it’s been happening ever since social bookmarking sites grew in popularity. Lavalinx just took the idea of exchanging bookmarks to a whole new level. We created a system that makes social bookmarking, management and exchange more efficient, easy and effective.
To help you better understand what we’re doing I have included a few frequently asked questions and our response to each.
What is a Social Page?
A Lavalinx Social Page is any page in your site that you want bookmarked in social sites. You can bookmark these pages yourself with our easy-to-use bookmarking wizard, or you can initiate social bookmarking trades with others and have them bookmark them.
Why should I bookmark my pages using Lavalinx?
Current bookmarking tools help you to effeciently bookmark your own pages on multiple social sites, which is great if you want to fill your social accounts with all of your own pages. The problem with this is that, by bookmarking too many of your own pages, you’ll eventually be marked as a spammer by most of the social sites, and could get your account banned.
With Lavalinx you have the option of bookmarking your own pages, or entering into social bookmark trades that would have other users bookmark your pages. For social bookmarking, this gives Lavalinx a huge advantage because now your social accounts will be filled with diverse, interesting pages from other users, and you will be getting other users to discover and vote on your pages.
How many social sites can be involved in a bookmark exchange?
In a social bookmark exchange you are only limited by the number of social sites you and your trade partner have. In a each trade scenario an equal number of social sites are used for fairness in trading. If you have 10 social sites and your trade partner has 10, you can trade with up to 10 social sites in a single trade. If you only had 4 social sites and your trade partner had 10, your trade would be limited to 4 social sites.
Does social bookmarking help my organic rankings?
Yes! Most of the social sites that have been added to Lavalinx give you a hard “dofollow” backlink.
Does Lavalinx automatically add links to social sites?
No. All links posted to social sites are made via a wizard that populates your page information into a submission form. We make it easy as possible, but it is not automated.
What’s the difference between a Public and Private social bookmarking site in Lavalinx?
All social bookmarking sites in Lavalinx marked as “public” are social sites that offer a public and spiderable user account. Because these sites are spiderable Lavalinx can verify that social bookmarks have been made or not. So, in a social bookmark exchange we can verfiy that both parties fulfill their side of the trade.
All social bookmarking sites in Lavalinx marked as “private” are social sites that can be used for your own bookmarking, but cannot be used in a social exchange.
Does Lavalinx keep track of the pages bookmarked?
Lavalinx will keep track of all the pages you bookmark yourself and the bookmarks that are received via trades and exchanges. Lavalinx also keeps track of which social sites your pages are bookmarked on ie. StumbleUpon, Digg, Mixx etc.
How many social bookmarking sites can I submit to?
Right now Lavalinx has over 80 social bookmarking sites, but we are adding more weekly. We make every effort to add social sites that will either have social traffic value, or SEO link value.
