If you expect your content to go viral or at least get the traffic you want without doing anything apart from pressing the ‘Publish’ button, you’re wrong. There are many ways to help people find your content – social media is the preferred method, but bookmarking is still useful, if used correctly.
Not giving visitors the ability to bookmark now leaves you running the risk of losing them completely. Sharing content has become as much a part of using the Internet as shopping online.

In this article I have included some existing schemes (including one on EBay, a particular favourite) and some others you might encounter on your journeys.
Squidoo, for those who don’t know, is a user-generated hub of information covering a diverse range of subjects.

I can’t help but think that in a Post Penguin world there is far too much talk of link removal and Disavowing. Aside from the fact that I’m getting so bored of hearing about it, it’s also an unhealthy attitude for any SEO to be purely focused on cleaning up links.

This isn’t a post about espionage or subterfuge. There will be no MI5 style covert operations involved, just a few simple techniques to follow, which should give you a better understanding of what your competitors are doing.
