Social bookmarking traffic is misleading.
There are thousands of social bookmarking sites all over the web.
To be completely honest these sites can really be push-button traffic sources (really they work).
I’ve been able to send thousands of visitors to my blogs from Stumble Upon, Digg, Reedit, and more.
The down-side to this traffic source is the quality of the visitors they send you. It’s bad (really bad)…
On a scale of 0 to 10, I’d rate visitors from social bookmarking sites to be exactly 0. In fact, I’d rather not have them visit my blog in the first place.
Come on Joe… They can’t possibly be that bad. Can they?
The stats from these traffic sources plain out stink. You’ll start to find too many zeros in important places.
I actually tested this with one of my past who’s Your Blogger? Articles: SEO is dead.
Why did I choose such an article?
