Social Bookmarking website: How is this going to boost your ranking, will this work in 2020?
The answer is big YEEESS.
But this depends on competition. If you are picking up high competition keywords and just linking to the social bookmarking website, you may not get that desired output.
Social bookmarking websites work well for medium and low competition keywords. How?
Referring Domain Factor: When your competitor has 30 referring domains and if you have around 15, you can boost your referring domain list by linking to social bookmarking websites.
The referring domain is one of the important ranking factors. Simple example. When are ordering a gig, a person got 4 good reviews from a single customer, and another person got 4 good reviews from 4 different customers. So which one we will choose? definitely the second one.
Why? because he got recommendations from a different person. This is how google treats your link profile.
So it is good to signup with social bookmarking sites to boost your domain authority and link profile ahead of your competitors.
