Website Builder Tutorials: How to Add Social Bookmarking

Video Tutorials

Frequently when you read an article on a website such as the BBC you’ll see a series of icons or buttons along the bottom of the article. Beside these icons it will usually say something like ‘add this’ or ‘bookmark this’ or ‘share this. In fact, you will see a version of a ‘share this’ button below every post in this blog.

If you press any of these they automatically add a ‘public bookmark’ for this article into a bookmarking service. A ‘public boomark’ is a page on the Internet where you can show people all the websites and articles that you think are good, and worth visiting. Its like saying, ‘I bookmarked this because I think its its good, why don’t you have a look.

Popular bookmarking services include Delicious, Digg, Reddit, and Stumbleupon. Because you’re effectively recommending a website using these bookmarks, they have the potential to push visitors to the website, because people may well follow those links. So when you’re building a website its a good idea to add these bookmarking services, as it is an easy way people can bookmark – and therefore recommend – your site.

Have a go at the tutorial below.

    Thanks for the feedback Kevin.

    I just tried following the link to your page, and I think the domain isn’t set up right – I am getting a 123-reg holding page. Just thought I should point that out in case there is an error.

    Let us know if you need any help setting that up.
