Social bookmarking is a great method for ranking well and direct traffic both direct traffic and good rankings. Social bookmarking sites directly show what people are looking at. They are aware marketers use it but know most sites that are bookmarked multiple times are genuinely of interest.

You will need to get yourself accounts on the social bookmarking sites you are going to use. Because this takes time you can use automation software such as Onlywire to speed things up. This will make your life a lot easier.
Then you need to find other people such as friends, family or marketers who will also set up an Onlywire account.
Then you just swap bookmarks. They bookmark your sites, you bookmark theirs.
Most sites belonging to an Internet marketer are only bookmarked the once. The search engines are probably very aware of this and so pay more attention to sites that have multiple bookmarks on a single site.
This simple approach can easily get you several bookmarks and will give your sites a hand up in the search engines.
You can outsource the entire social bookmarking process. It can become expensive if you are creating a lot of sites. You will be able to find someone to do reasonably economically on any of the marketing forums.
You can use the same system to web sites such as Stumbleupon and Digg, both of which are potential sources of massive amounts of traffic. These sites expect more newsworthy and interesting articles. Well written articles can get thousands of visitors in a few hours with an interesting article.
Setting up multiple social bookmarking accounts yourself and bookmarking your sites is a possibility. Unless you use proxies, the sites will notice what you are doing and close your accounts. Whereas this is possible, it is not worth the trouble.
By trading bookmarks with other marketers you build your network of contacts. Potentially, these could turn out to be lucrative joint venture partners in the future.
