    Yes, I find that including buttons for social bookmarking on Digg, StumbleUpon, del.icio.us, and others can be useful on any kind of website you want to bring more people to.

    It's definitely better for sites which have a strong community input, such as blogs or news sites with comments, so you have many pages that can be of interest separately and thus individually bookmarked.

    Anyway, many people use these social bookmarking platforms primarly to keep their favorite websites available everywhere they go, so if you think your site can be thought of as a useful resource they will visit more or less oftenly, it's best to consider people might want to bookmark it that way.

    In short, I believe social bookmarking buttons can be useful for any page that you believe people will want to visit/consult more than once, but that's just my opinion. :)

    Social bookmarking is a method for Internet users to store, organize, search, and manage bookmarks of web pages on the Internet with the help of metadata, typically in the form of tags that collectively or collaboratively become a social tagging.

    It also depends on the type of traffic you receive. A sight about retirement living may have fewer people on MySpace or FaceBook.

    Yes, when it comes to traffic, you can fetch a lot of traffic from a Social Networking website but you should make sure that you communicate with people on the Social bookmarking website. Most of the people fail to communicate with people and hence are not able to get traffic from the Social Networking websites

    Some of the Social Bookmarking websites also gives your website a Do Follow link. If your website gets a Do Follow Link from the Social Bookmarking website then your website gets 2 benefits. First, your website will get more Traffic. Second, the Do Follow link your website will get will be considered as a Backlink by Search Engines which can help your website to get better rankings in the Search Engines.

    I usually select sites and or links of interest. Especially if it's something that I know that hasn't been done to death with. If you're looking for an all around bookmarking tool and you don't want to clutter your site or forum up with, you could use the following tool. It's pretty handy. :)

    I think I'll be making a tutorial on how to install it on vB or IPB soon. Possibly other forums as well.

    RSS Feed is a good option to Bookmark your Website link. Most of the Social Bookmarking websites do have this option. You will only have to Register the Domain name of your website and your website updates will be Added on the Social bookmarking website.

    Of Course Yes..

    If you look around the internet at some Blogs, you will see a button saying something like "Digg this" or "Delic.io.us" etc. These are shortcuts to some of the 46 plus "Social Book Marking" sites that have sprung up all over the internet. If you have ever wondered what those are or why they are there read on.

    What a Social Bookmarking site is about is telling other members what you have seen, liked and why you liked it, on the internet. They are extremely popular right now, so they are a SEO dream.

    If you draw the attention of the community, enormous traffic will be sent to your site. even if you don't you will come across the few that will like what you have and poke around your website. The bookmarks can be categorized in virtually any topic, so you wont be sending people looking for something totally unrelated to your site.

    I have mentioned in prior articles the importance of building links to your site. Each post on these Social Bookmarking sites counts as a link to you.

    it helps

    definitely it can help your site to get traffic as well as backlinks. You just need to be knowledgeable in choosing your keyword for the particular page you wanted to bookmark because it is the key to getting visitors. Users key-in keywords to look for topics, products, services, etc.

    Even if you do not get a "Do Follow" backlink for your website from the Social Bookmarking website then too you shouldn't be worried about it as you are still getting Traffic for your website. Also, if your website content is present in Social Bookmarking websites then the Popularity of your website increases and hence the Visitors will start Trusting your website which will help you to make a Brand name for your website which is indeed very important in Online Business.
