    Are the likes of Digg, Stumbleupon, and even

    URL.ORG still valuable resources for internet marketers?

    I know that there are many more out there.

    These were just examples.

    After the Google Penguin update, Social bookmarking is considered as less effective for building quality backlinks and generating website traffic. Only links from high PR social bookmarking websites are valuable.

    There are lots of Social Sites. The effective measure would be getting backlinks from quality not quantity. Google gives priority to original content and quality.

    Always try to use social bookmarking sites indirectly. At first build links from web 2.0, link wheel, article submissions, press release, guest posting etc. Then submit those live links to many social bookmarking sites. That will not hurt your website and you will get good traffic for your website.

    social bookmarking is effective only when you are using quality content and do bookmarking on some high pr sites to get back links(quality) to improve your site performance.

    PageRank is no longer a major factor in the quality of a site. Visit the site yourself and take a look at it, see what others think of it, and then make your decision whether you want to join it. You do NOT EVER want to join any social bookmarking or networking site in order to get links - That should NEVER be a priority. Being an active participant and getting and giving valuable information should be - the links are a secondary benefit.

    Social bookmarking services support users to gather and promote their most favorite web sites online. These sites can help to save people lots of time and effort for finding, organizing and sharing web sites.

    Just check the quality content and submit it in high PR. Social bookmarking is one of the important part of SEO, but be careful while doing bookmarking, if you did it more than may be sited will count it as Spam.

    Social bookmarking is still an effective way to generate traffic, but not that useful for SEO. For instance, if you have about 10 votes for your site, stumbleupon will send about 50 visitors. Of course it depends on the niche.

    An important advantage is that you can use your favorite bookmarks site from any location using the internet. All you have to do is log on to the bookmarking site and determine your favorite website. You can also add more bookmarks from anywhere and log in to many different social bookmarking websites.

    Social bookmarking websites are the good method of link building but it is important to check the quality of the website and then submit the link on that websites.

    Social bookmarking is still effective as long as you are submitting a high quality content on a high PR social bookmarking website.
