The links on the pages would obviously be internal links. Have the links got to be from other sites to be counted by Google etc?
If I submit my site to a directory could I submit the directory page with the link on to the social bookmarking site - is there a downside to doing any of this?
As I say I am a newbie trying to find my feet - any advice would be appreciated.
Manually submitting to social bookmarking websites is going to take you absolutely ages, if you are serious about heavily link building using social bookmarking then I would either buy a bit of software or use a service to do it for you. Forget doing it manually, it's a waste of time.
What you want is as many backlinks from different sources, their is no point having 1000 links from one website / IP, when you can have one link on 1000 different sites. It holds more value getting links from different sites, that's why its better to have a bit of software that can automatically do this for you.
If you buy software like "Bookmarking Demon" or "Sick Submitter" then you are also going to need to setup a decaptcha account and purchase credits to solve the decaptchas, you do not want to be sat all day typing in captcha codes!!!
Or use a service that will do it for you, there is a banner above that offers 1,000 bookmarks for only $20
... find something like this, or look on Fiverr.com for a similar service.
Directories will only accept links to the root of your domain, so don't go wasting your time submitting profiles, they will simply get deleted.
Hope this helps.
