Social Bookmarking is a very simple process. In this, a person generally bookmarks a webpage or link in their browser. You also have done this before.
The main intention of doing this is, you want to read them later because they are important for you. You don’t want to surf the internet again and again to access them.
In Social Bookmarking you need to build your own audience, so-called followers on social sites. When you write a post, when you launch a product or when you make a video and in all the cases like this, you share that with your audience.
This way you can generate social views, referral traffic and especially leads as well.

- Then submit or save your links following the process.
The process may vary a little like you can pin your images to Pinterest and stumble your blog post to StumbleUpon.
Note: -Always add some social widgets to share your links on Social Sites. I am using “Super Socializer” Plugin In WordPress. You can also use according to your need.
Sometimes this function is embedded in the theme itself. As you have seen in Newspaper 8 and Colormag themes.
Don’t spam on Social Bookmarking Sites. I have seen most of the people are blocked or spammed to share their links on Social and Social Bookmarking Sites.

The submission should be in a proper way so that you blog always get free from any SEO penalties because I have already said that wrong SEO can ruin your blog ranking.
