Ok, let’s get down. Bookmarking Demon 5 is finally out (although they might be up to version 6 by now). So, yeah, it’s 50 dollars more than it used to be. But let’s also be realistic; why would you buy a social bookmarking tool for except to make money right? So the goal is to make money, and if this thing will put more money in your pocket it’s a good investment. I mean, I was a messenger in NYC when I was a kid and let me tell guys on foot vs. guys on bike didn’t even work in the same CATEGORY of money. But you’re looking into a social bookmarking script because you want to make money while online right?
The first issue to clear up, though, is the name. I’ve seen all kinds of variations like bookmarkingdemon and bookmarking daemon, but confusion is also out there because of similar products like Social Bookmarking Demon/Social Bookmark Demon or Social Bookmarks Submitter. But if you’re looking for the actual bookmarking software I’m talking about it can be found here www.bookmarkingdemon.com. And to make matters worse there are also a few FREE WordPress social bookmarking plugins like “Sociable.” But plugins like that are NOT the same kind of tool so we’re not even going to talk about them-I just want to point them out now and get that whole discussion off the table.
But those 2 products Social Bookmark Demon or Social Submitter are both sold through Plimus.com, and Bookmarking Demon is sold through Clickbank.com. If you Google Social Bookmark Demon or Social Bookmarks Submitter especially if you had the word “comparison” you come up with some blogs that look suspiciously like they were created to promote those 2 products. SBD looks very dicey to me; there is no contact, no testimonials (hell even FAKE ones at least make you feel better about throwing your money into the black hole of the internet), no forums, a SEVEN DAY money back. That is literally the shortest money back deal I’ve ever seen. And or course it’s more expensive than BMD, but the site makes you think it must be the top social bookmarking software out there. Listen, if you can find somebody that uses it let me know, because so far I can’t.
Similar situation with Social Bookmarks Submitter. This tool also claims to be the best social bookmarking tool, but to me it’s piecemeal. The way this one works is you have to buy it in parts. There’s the main software, then the one for scuttle sites, then the one for trackbacks. So it’s a little pricey to begin and the add ones get you into the most expensive for this kind of products. There’s another product out there that ONLY focuses on Pligg sites, but that tool is unquestionably Black Hat. These 3 I’m talking about in this piece at least pretend to be White Hat. Jeez! I mean go to Digital Point and you can find a social bookmark service with a social bookmarking list that will do the social bookmarking submission for you-and you just hold your nose and the look the other way and you can truthfully say “I have no idea what they did. I just paid them.”
OK, so let’s talk about WHY you’d use this kind of software
To make money! I’m not EVEN about to write the details of how to use these products or what all the special features are. If you want to know that get over the sales page and they’ll be more than willing to give you al the details. But I will tell you how I’ve used the software; to get backlinks to new sites and to increase my position in the search engines. Search Engine Optimization is sort of standard knowledge at this point. Everybody knows you do what you can, you get all the right plugins, blah, blah, blah. And after all that? Surprise you’re still not making money!
You need your pages, sites and blogs to pop up in the first page or 2 of somebody doing a search or you’re not going to get a lot of traffic from search. One sort of “new” wrinkle in this formula is social bookmarking websites to get both traffic from those websites directly AND for anchor text links that POINT TO YOUR SITES. Here I’ll draw you a couple of pictures. Let’s say you decide to make a site or blog about “jackass.” OK, brand new site is pretty much going to be at the bottom. As you can see from the image below, your goal is to pull yourself out of the deadzone and INTO the first position. It’s not going to happen, by the way, but you do what you can….
So let me show you a simplified image so you can get the idea. Basically 1000 words can be summed up with this one picture.
And there are about half a dozen articles on this blog where I learned to make 100 dollars a day about a year ago with Adsense, and you can read those if you want to know how to do that. But basically I just build sites targeting “rich” keywords. That is nothing special. Not at ALL. But the trick is getting traffic. So I made 3 new sites and just used Bookmarking Demon to get enough traffic to generate that amount of money. So if you’re doing Adsense, or BANS, or affiliate products I think it’s useful tool.
