Monday, March 5th, 2007

The Bookmarketer free bookmarketing power tool

Not long after the offical launch of TheBookmarketer, we have already added some new social bookmarking sites. 

You will note that we have added Zaadz, Kaboodle, Jumpup, i89 and Searchles.  I can’t be certain, but for most of these we might be the only multi-site bookmarking service to offer them as an option. 

There will be more updates later, and soon I will provide some webmaster tips on social bookmarking propotion – the white hat way.

Just for the record, here are our pages at these websites:

This Blog Uses The DoFollow PlugIn

Thursday, February 15th, 2007

I love Loren Baker’s post on 13 Reasons Why NoFollow Tags Suck.  It goes right in line with my thinking when I posted the comments about Wikipedia and the NoFollow attribute, and the experiment to test the NoFollow attribute, with no stop-the-presses-results

I have said this many times before…the World Wide Web (www) works when linking is encouraged.  The Only One Orphan (ooo) works when linking is discouraged. Thanks to Loren for showing me the DoFollow WordPress Plugin.  If you post a comment here, you can be sure there will be no NoFollow attribute on your link.  

UPDATE February 2009: We have switched to the No Follow Free plugin, which seems to work better with the Intense Debate Plugin.  We have set the threshold at 5 comments.  So if you have commented more than five times, the DoFollow kckjs in…and no, firing off five quick comments all at one does not count.  This is a fully moderated blog.

Offical Launch of TheBookmarketer

Monday, February 12th, 2007

The Bookmarketer free bookmarketing power tool

This is the official launch of TheBookmarketer.  It is tempting to call this a revolution in website marketing, to use the typical hype of online marketing gurus…but it’s not.  It’s not about hype, it is about substance.  It’s not a revolution, it is a big step forward in the Web 2.0 revolution that is already under way.  And it is an extraordinarily handy and easy tool to give website owners and bloggers a competitive edge. TheBookmarketer is a social bookmarking tool.  In my next post, I will give a complete rundown of social marketing, why it is important to webmasters and bloggers and how you can harness its awesome power.  In this post, I will simply explain what TheBookmarketer is, what it is not, who should use it, how it is better than several “similar” tools, and why I have gone to the effort and expense to make it so good and give it to you for free. 

WHAT THEBOOKMARKETER IS… 

 

  • TheBookmarketer helps your visitors promote your site in many ways.  

  • TheBookmarketer is a set-it-and-forget tool, a free snippet of code you have to add to your SSI or include file only once. Ever.  

  • TheBookmarketer helps you win with Google’s 2007 algorithm changes.  

  • TheBookmarketer helps build valuable one-way links to your website.  

  • TheBookmarketer helps create “natural linking” patterns that impress search engines.  

  • TheBookmarketer  helps build deep links that tell the search engines that your website has depth.  

  • TheBookmarketer draws other interested social bookmark users to your site (targeted traffic).  

WHAT THEBOOKMARKETER IS NOT…  

 

  • TheBookmarketer is not an “automated traffic machine”.  Those don’t generally give you quality traffic.  

  • TheBookmarketer is not a 0 to 60 in 5.2 link-builder.  It builds links at a speed that reflects a) the number of visitors to a page, and b) the value they get out of the content of the page.  

  • TheBookmarketer is not a guarantee of success on its own; you need quality content that others will feel is worth bookmarking for later use or for sharing with friends or colleagues.  

WHO SHOULD USE THEBOOKMARKETER… 

TheBookmarketer can help any website get wider exposure and higher search engine rankings.  However, certain types of sites stand the most to gain:   

 

  • Content-rich portals and information sites, including directories and article directories.  

  • Ezines with online archives.  

  • Blogs and online forums with always new and useful information.  

  • Ecommerce stores with descriptions of products that people might want to save for later use of share with others.  

  • Photo- or video-sharing websites.  

  • News websites, general or niche  

  • Any website with either new or useful information  

HOW THEBOOKMARKETER IS BETTER THAN “SIMILAR” TOOLS… 

Technically, you do not need a tool to prompt your visitors to social bookmark your pages.  You could add code for each social bookmarking site by hand.  The disadvantage to that is that it is a lot of work…a lot of work getting started and a lot of work keeping up-to-date when in a fast-changing field.  And you won’t be able to cover as many social bookmarking websites.  There are a handful of social bookmarking tools for webmasters around, but we made TheBookmarketer better in 5 ways:  

 

  • At this point, only TheBookmarketer has the Google Bookmarks submit link.  

  • Only TheBookmarketer allows you to check your stats (see the email form at the top of http://www.seo-writer.com/tools/bookmarker.php.  

  • The Bookmarkerter has the largest list of social bookmarking sites, offering the best reach of potential visitors and the best breadth of incoming links (and we plan to add to the list).  

  • TheBookmarketer makes the most popular sites easy to access by floating them to the top.  

  • I am committed to keeping TheBookmarketer very current so you don’t have to think about it.   

WHY I INVESTED THE EFFORT AND MONEY TO DEVELOP THEBOOKMARKETER JUST TO GIVE IT AWAY FOR FREE… 

Marketing.  It’s that simple.  We are a website marketing company and what better way to introduce ourselves to you and to those people who will be bookmarking your pages than by demonstrating our ability to help you market your website.  That is the same reason why we are committed to keeping it current for you and ensuring that it remains the very best tool possible.  See it in action at the bottom of this post…

The BookMarketer – Free Social Bookmarking Power Tool Script and Tagging Tips for Webmasters

Wednesday, February 7th, 2007

The Bookmarketer free bookmarketing power tool

I recently announced the launch of the beta edition of The BookMarketer, a new social bookmarking tool similar to a handful of others, but just a little easier to use. Already, I have made some improvements.

1. I have added Google bookmarks, and I think this is the only one to include them.  Is this important?  You bet it is.  Just pay close attention to this SiteProNews article that lays out how sites will likely be evaluated soon by Google.  SEO as we know it is finally going to get a much-needed kick in the posterior.

2. I have doubled the number of Most Popular bookmarking sites, so there are now two rows.  There will not be more than two.  This is enough.

The tool remains in beta until one additional feature is added, but already I am proud that it is “a better mousetrap”.  Hopefully that feature will be in place before the end of the week, and we can officially launch next week.

The BookMarketer – Free Social Bookmarking Power Tool Script and Tagging Tips for Webmasters

Friday, February 2nd, 2007

It’s finally in beta: The Bookmarketer – Free Social Bookmarking Power Tool .  This is an ideal script for webmasters to encourage their visitors to bookmark or tag their web pages at the growing number of social bookmarking websites. 

The Bookmarketer free bookmarketing power tool

When we say “beta”, let’s be clear — our “beta” version is already a small step above the handful of similar services already on the market.  We have made it easier to find the most important social bookmarking websites, and we are already considering an enhancement to that.

The Bookmarketer will graduate from beta, when we add a feature that will greatly enhance its usefullness, heads and tails above similar services.  But that’s another announcement for another day (hopefully soon!).

In the meantime, you can take The Bookmarketer for a spin by clicking on the icons at the end of this post (and every other post in SEO Marketing Express)
