It is true that bookmarking is one of the main factor of increasing the page rank. So, you should use all these services for every post of your blog.

Tips for reddit bookmarking

Popular tag means the topic, which is famous on the web.This sounds simple, but it is very necessary to focus on it.
For instance, I have used reddit many times for my posts, but I only got 1 or 2 visitors from there (As I was not focusing on choosing a good Subreddit).But for my last post, My subreddit was “Android”.From that reddit, I got 22 visitors, within some hours.You can get far more than that, by focusing on subreddit.

Stumbleupon do not need to be introduced, even a newbie blogger would know about it.In fact, most of us first stumbles our posts before sharing it to any social media.Because it is a high traffic site, every stumble is clicked there.So, will you get traffic every time you save a bookmark?No!
They have developed a system, which blocks a duplicate link to get traffic like first stumble.So, you should avoid double – stumbling as it is just a waste of time.
Tips for using stumbleupon :
- Don`t do double-stumbling
- Use permalinks for bookmarking
- Choose a nice tag for your book mark
- Give it a short description
I get 2 visitors (most of the time), immediately after stumbling, which means there is lacking something like description or tag.One of my friend receives at least 20 visitors after seconds of stumbling !Only experience can make you a good stumbler.
Delicious is a PR 8 site, which receives 5 million visitors a month and is a good place to share your website.You can add your link from “Add a link option”
After entering your link, add a description and catchy tittle to it.
Tips for Delicious Bookmarking :
- Make sure that, it shows the image of your link
- Use the suggested tags, as well as your own tag
- Add the name of your web site at the end of description
