What the Heck are Social Bookmarks?

Social bookmarks are a great way to backlink your articles. This gets them indexed faster by search engines, increases page rank (when you use dofollow bookmarks), and can earn you money as well. There are many websites where you can do this - but the format is usually the same: A title, tag field (keywords), short summary (50-75 words), and a category.

Using free social bookmarking sites with a revenue sharing model can be a great way to boost the search engine rank of your blog, website, or articles, and best of all - get paid for doing it. Social bookmarking is one of the most effective ways of backlinking, but it can be a long and ardous process, particularly when you have a lot of content. If you're going to be using free social bookmarking sites that pay a portion of AdSense revenue, at least you'll find you get a nice amount of secondary income along the way.

Here are the best free social bookmarking sites with AdSense revenue share:

I use these free social bookmarking sites for all my articles, and I highly recommend you do to. You can easily add an additional 20% to your earnings, just by using the first three. If you use all of these bookmarks that share AdSense revenue, you could earn an additional 35% if not more.

InfoPirate: My favorite social bookmarking site. My InfoPirate CTR (click through rate) is huge, usually over 50%. I earn between 10% and 15% of what I make off articles just with InfoPirate bookmarks. InfoPirate offers 80% of the AdSense impressions on their content. This means that 80% of the time, your AdSense ads will be displayed on your bookmarks, and 20% of the time InfoPirate will display theirs. A pretty good deal, since their bookmarks get a high number of views compared to other bookmarking sites, and index fairly quickly too. ***Added note, I've earned $17 over the last week on InfoPirate - not bad for the amount of effort required***

Xomba: Probably the best-ranking bookmarking site, Xomba offers a 50% AdSense share. This is lower than InfoPirate, but it's popularity makes up the difference. It's nofollow, so it won't improve your page rank. It is a big mistake to overlook Xomba! You will likely earn 10%-15% of what you do with your articles with Xomba bookmarks, if not more. (***UPDATE: Xomba no longer allows you to bookmark your own content due to spam problems they've been having

SheToldMe: SheToldMe is currently the third-best free social bookmarking site with AdSense revenue Share. It doesn't rank as well as InfoPirate or Xomba, but it offers an incredible 100% AdSense share! Expect more earnings using SheToldMe.

SquidStop: is another winner that provides 100% AdSense share - plus it's dofollow!

TipDrop: Shares 75% of AdSense impressions, so why not?

YouSayToo: Is nofollow, but like Xomba, don't make the mistake of passing up YouSayToo. It shares 50% of AdSense impressions.

Seekyt: Is a rather new social bookmarking site offering 65% revenue share. It is a dofollow site as well. It's one of the nicest looking social bookmarking sites, and should continue to grow. It will probably be one of the top sites within a year.

This is the first time I hear of Social Bookmarking Sites With Revenue Sharing, This is great, now I get an extra revenue while I bookmark my pages.
Dec 2, 2010 7:53am
It really makes a huge difference. Especially with InfoPirate and Xomba. Thanks for the comment Max!
Dec 2, 2010 12:24pm

Dec 3, 2010 10:35pm
It'll pay off! Check InfoPirate and Xomba out for sure.
Dec 3, 2010 9:51pm
My wife is starting to do the bookmarking for me. I was looking for a list exactly like this. Thanks.
Dec 3, 2010 10:35pm
Fantastic! You should see a huge jump in earnings!
Dec 5, 2010 1:43pm
Nice list, there are 3 on here that I have never heard of before. I Like the tip! I followed your advice on InfoPirate, you can get to it on Google search if you just put in infopirate. without org or com after the dot. It works like a charm.
Dec 5, 2010 1:58pm
Hi pwarlick - glad the article helped!

thanks for the infopirate tip, I wasn't aware of that.
Dec 8, 2010 6:01pm
Very very helpful!
Dec 8, 2010 6:17pm
Thanks Brooke!
Dec 9, 2010 3:20pm
Interesting article with some good tips. SquidStop and TipDrop are new to me - I will be checking them out soon. Thanks for sharing.
Dec 9, 2010 3:55pm
Thanks southerngirl. SquidStop is relatively small right now but with 100% revenue share AND being dofollow, definitely a good one to use.
Dec 24, 2010 8:19am
Thank you! For writers new to article writing information like this is literally gold.
Dec 24, 2010 11:18am
No problem Tribeguy. I know when I was starting out that's how I felt about this information too! So I'm glad to have it in one place and I hope it helps you out :)
Dec 28, 2010 2:04am
Great tips, AJ! Really saved me a lot of time in backlinking research :)
Dec 28, 2010 5:38am
Thanks Brian - I've found these really useful, I hope you do too. InfoPirate and Xomba in particular.

I'm bookmarking this one, so as to capitalize on the prospects. I'm new to IB, but I've been at Hubpages for almost a year now, and have well over a hundred articles there, and I'd like to start writing a whole lot more here, and will. I had, or maybe even still have a Xomba account, but I couldn't log in there the last time that I'd tried, and couldn't get them to send me another password reset. I wonder if I violated their TOS someway. What I was doing was linking to my hubpages articles, and providing a brief description, or even the first paragraph of those articles followed by a link to it. I guess I should just sign back up, if possible, and pay closer attention.
Jan 5, 2011 8:47pm
I violated the Xomba TOS when I was just starting out. They're very strict over there, which is both good and bad hahah. I haven't used HubPages much myself, but I think you'll like things here!
Jan 5, 2011 8:51pm
I do like it here, I'm just sort of impatient with getting the free reign thing. :-p Oh well, I submitted two whimsical rural musings today, so we'll see how that goes. Thanks for the quick reply.
Jan 5, 2011 8:53pm
I know it's annoying, but it's also one of the thing that benefits the community most, since it keeps spam out. Over time, we will probably catch other article directory sites because we provide better user experience overall. In the meantime, it's frustrating, but you'll get through it :)
Jan 5, 2011 8:54pm
Thanks :-;
Jan 12, 2011 3:20pm
Thanks for sharing. I was unaware that there were social bookmarking sites that offered a revenue share.
Jan 12, 2011 3:27pm
They can be a very nice supplement to your income. Xomba will earn the most, but requires more work than InfoPirate, which is my favorite.
Jan 12, 2011 6:11pm
This was a very useful article thanks for the tips.
Jan 12, 2011 6:34pm
my pleasure sidhartha

Good luck!

Thanks for this interesting article
Jan 21, 2011 7:44pm
You're welcome glemoh!
Jan 22, 2011 4:27pm
This information is amazing and very valuable thank you for sharing. Following this guide was easy and is already producing results.
My only question is there an EASY way to track all these sites in adsense?
Jan 22, 2011 4:41pm
You can integrate Adsense with Google Analytics. It isn't 100% accurate, but it's very close and over time you will get a good picture of all your article stats.

I can't remember off the top of my head how to do this (since I only had to do it once), but in Adsense if you click "integrate with analytics" and follow the directions you should be alright - if not post in the forums and you'll get guidance.
Jan 22, 2011 5:09pm
Thanks for the speedy reply, looking into it now.
Jan 26, 2011 11:29am
Thank you AJ! great advice for newbie me.
Jan 26, 2011 12:59pm
Always glad to help!
Jan 30, 2011 12:40pm
Your article was really nice and informative and I decided to try out social bookmarking, but I was asked to submit the website name. I am sure I can't use infobarrel? Kindly guide. Is there some article about this?
Jan 30, 2011 12:44pm
I'm not entirely sure what you're referring to. Where did you need to submit the website name?

Normally you can use "www.infobarrel.com/Users/YOURNAME" in places it asks for a personal website.
Feb 3, 2011 10:16pm
Very help article. I will look in to using some of these sites. Thanks for sharing your wisdom.
Feb 23, 2011 10:29am
Wow! Great tip! What a great way to improve traffic and get paid additional revenue while you're at it.
Mar 3, 2011 1:44pm
Great tip- You rock! =)
Mar 4, 2011 2:12pm
Thanks for this nice article
Mar 4, 2011 4:05pm
I genuinely didn't realize there were social bookmarking sites that offered revenue share until I read this article. And the fact that some of them even offer do-follow linking is just awesome! I just added a layer to my niche site backlinking strategy. :)
Mar 9, 2011 9:00pm
I had not heard of infopirate before today!
Mar 10, 2011 7:50pm
Great post, thanks a lot!
Mar 25, 2011 10:04am
In the list I only know yousaytoo and shetoldme. Thanks for the list
Mar 25, 2011 9:54pm
Loved this article! I had no idea there were sites that offered revenue sharing like this in addition to "dofollow" links. I shall certainly take advantage of these in the future!
Mar 29, 2011 5:37pm
Sorry to say, but Xomba will no longer let you post your own bookmarks there, only other sites.I was getting major traffic from them too.
May 11, 2011 11:08am
Thanks for the information
Jun 30, 2011 4:43pm
Did you notice that tipdrop has now PR2, instead of PR3? I still use it, easy and simple.
Jun 30, 2011 4:45pm
I hadn't no, as I haven't been writing lately. Thx for the update! Easy + AdSense = win in my book.
Jul 18, 2011 1:59pm
good article
Sep 18, 2011 6:39pm
great article AJ
Sep 22, 2011 7:32pm
Another useful article. Thanks. Xomba banned me for life for some reason, even though I wrote a nice summary of my articles from scratch (completely original material). Oh well. I'll try some of these others, although it's a bit of a pain.
Sep 26, 2011 1:50pm
Sorry to hear Xomba banned you Marcel. It seems like they no longer allow you to bookmark your own content, which wasn't the case when I wrote the article. Bookmarking is a drag...
Sep 26, 2011 12:15pm
Ya, Xomba banned me too. They say they've had major issues with people spamming so they don't allow you to bookmark your own work. It violates their promotional rules.
Sep 26, 2011 1:49pm
Thanks for the update, I've edited the article. Sorry to hear about the ban TAG.
Sep 27, 2011 7:29pm
Awesome article: simple, straightforward, and helpful!
Nov 14, 2011 2:31am
AJ has done it again...big ups!
Jan 8, 2012 5:27pm
Does anyone still get results from Infopirate? There semrush and alexa stats are really poor right now. It's very easy to use though...
Mar 19, 2012 7:37pm
Write for the articles sake or spend time writing to back link? I always get pulled between these two decisions.

another adsense revenue sharing website ......
