    I have heard in a number of these forums about social bookmarking, is it the new directory? Is submitting to digg and pinterest fine or is it a race to how many you can submit too?

    Social Bookmarks Nevers seems to Blackhat - But if a SEO person do unethical way in submissions then its seems to Blackhat.

    Social Bookmarks always effective and white hat process but - we have to work with google guidelines/ rules on social bookmarks and contents.

    Cheers !

    I do not think that social bookmarking is blackhat. I have used it before and I am against using blackhat.

    General things like this or small tricks aren't Black Hat as every people try different small tricks to get their better ranked and google understand this.Black Hat generally refers to mass and abusive ways of getting high ranks so social bookmarking can't be Black Hat.

    Social bookmarking itself is white hat but spamming social bookmarking sites with fake accounts is black hat. It's very unsophisticated black hat and probably not worth the time and effort you put into it, but it is still black hat.

    Yes Social bookmarking is white hat but spamming the social bookmarking site is black hat. Instead of doing bookmarks in 0 PR sites we should do it in high PR sites. I think having 5-10 backlinks from 0 PR is equal to 1 backlink from 5 PR or higher sites

    Hi everyone,
    Social Bookmarking is white hat SEO. Infact Bookmarking sites even wont allow duplicate sites to be bookmarked in it..Only unique sites with unique content can be bookmarked..

    Social bookmarking is not a black hat SEO tactics. It is one of the off page optimization techniques that can be done for a new site to get indexed as quick as possible in search engines. We can improve the site traffic if we do social bookmarking.

    So just pick out the top social bookmarking sites like digg, delicious, stumble upon, facebook, reddit and post some interesting news regarding your site and get votes.
