Work From Home – Thanks To Web 2.0

Let me guess. You work from home, but are not satisfied with your current marketing method. Well, the good news is that social bookmarking is a method of driving traffic to your website which has proven to be highly effective. This thing, commonly referred to as Web 2.0, has changed the complexion of the internet. A major aspect which has caused social bookmarking to gain popularity, is the fact that it makes it simple for its users to stay up to date, as well as located new websites on related topics. As a work from home entrepreneur, you need to ask yourself how you can benefit from this technology. How can becoming a bookmarking expert increase your market share?

No one can argue that the promotion of an online business can take a lot out of you. All of this after you have spent months and months building your website, and making it just right. Unfortunately, you efforts will be all for naught if you do not steer targeted visitors towards you website. Targeted visitors are those who are most likely to be interested in purchasing what your website is selling. Fortunately, social bookmarking can help. Anytime you bookmark your website, you need to place it in a specific category. Of course, when you do so, you will place it in the category most relevant to the subject matter of your website. Doing so will give others searching for a niche topic related to your website, the opportunity to find your website. However, do not think that this is an automatic process. It is something which you have to undertake day after day, and month after month. Some feel that this cost too much time and effort, and therefore ignore social bookmarking. Of course, we do not feel this way, which is why we will reap the benefits, and leave the competition behind.

As you may have heard elsewhere, the most popular product on the internet is information. As such, the search engines are always in search of new content. Websites which posses both frequently updated, and unique quality content, are those which will rank highest in the search engines. As you may have imagined, social bookmarking websites fit this description. Therefore, these websites are held in high regard by the search engines. The work from home entrepreneur can take advantage of this authority by submitting their websites to some of the more popular social bookmarking websites such as Yahoo Buzz, Mister Wong, Propeller, Delicious, StumbleUpon, Google Bookmarks, etc. If you have a new website, even better. Simply submitting your new website to these social bookmarking websites will alert the search engines that your website is now live, and will result in your website being indexed very quickly.

Of course, one of the major factors which the search engines look at when ranking websites, is how many back links a particular website has. A back link essentially acts as a vote for that specific website. The higher the authority of the website that the „vote“ is coming from, the more value that it is given. When you submit your website to a social bookmarking website, you receive a back link. This is not any back link, however. Not only does it come from a website which is of high authority, but it also comes from a website which has categorized your website according to its niche. Therefore, your website becomes more relevant for its niche market. Sadly, I have seen individuals attempting to charge unsuspecting website owners upwards of $60 per month just for one link on their website. This is completely unnecessary, as you can get more relevant links for free via social bookmarking.

If you have been hearing of Web 2.0 for some time now, this is because it is nothing new. As such, social bookmarking was not just invented yesterday. There is absolutely no reason why any work from home professional should not be taking full advantage of social bookmarking. Yes, it will take time and effort on your part. For many of you, this is simply not worth it. However, for those of you who are willing to put forth the effort, you will reap the long-term results.

Social bookmarking should have a place on your agenda if you Work From Home . Each and every Home Business will benefit by taking full advantage of this method of promotion. Drop by and see us at
