Top 50 Social Book marking web site 2007 by web seo solution

Top 50 Social Bookmarking website 2007 by 10e20.com - articles by Mr. Chris
On 10e20 we talk a lot about social bookmarking sites. To put it simply, social bookmarking is a way for people to save, classify, share and search Internet bookmarks. For me, I am always more concerned about how social bookmarks can drive traffic to my sites and increase sales and its important to know which ones can drive the most traffic. With that in mind, the folks over at eBizMBA have put together a list of the top 20 social bookmarking sites. They based their results on data on a combination of Compete.com and Quantcast data. I have provided the list below with a short explanation of each site (from the sites themselves & Wikipedia) and also their Alexa ranking to see if its consistent with their findings.
1 Digg - a user driven social content website. It combines social bookmarking, blogging, and syndication with a form of non-hierarchical, democratic editorial control. Alexa Rank = 89.
2 Netscape - a social news portal programmed by you. Users can vote for which stories are to be included on the front page, and may comment on them as well. Alexa Rank = 544
3 Technorati - searches, surfaces and organizes blogs and the other forms of independent, user-generated content (photos, videos, voting, etc.) increasingly referred to as “citizen media.” Alexa Rank = 201
4 del.icio.us - the definition of a social bookmarking site. It is now a part of Yahoo! Alexa Rank = 186
5 StumbleUpon - a web browser plugin that allows its users to discover and rate webpages, photos, videos, and news articles. Alexa Rank = 310
6 reddit - a social bookmarking website where users can post links to content on the web. Other users may then vote the posted links up or down, causing them to appear more or less prominently on the reddit home page. Alexa Rank = 826
7 Slashdot - is a science, science fiction, and technology-related news website which features user-submitted and editor-evaluated current affairs news with a “nerdy” slant. Alexa Rank = 433
8 BlinkList - allows you to save a website instantly, and add the “Tags” and description later, in one click on a different button. Alexa Rank = 3,617
9 FARK.com - a community website created by Drew Curtis allowing users to comment on a daily batch of news articles and other items from various websites. Links are submitted by Fark members, which are then approved for posting on the main page by administrators (not really a social bookmarking site). Alexa Rank = 1,521
10 ClipMarks - Save your clips privately, email them to friends, post them on your blog, or share them on ClipMarks for others to see. Alexa Rank = 4,944
11 Newsvine - Placement of stories is determined by a multitude of factors including freshness, popularity, and reputation. Contribution is open to all, and editorial judgement is in the hands of the community. Alexa Rank = 3,600
12 furl.net - stands for File Uniform Resource Locators. It’s a free social bookmarking website that allows members to store searchable copies of webpages and share them with others. Every member receives 5 gigabytes of storage space. Alexa Rank = 3,90413 BlogMarks - a collaborative link management project based on sharing and key-word tagging. Alexa Rank = 6,619
14 ShoutWire - a news and information web sitethat allows its users to vote on or “Shout” submitted articles. Alexa Rank = 11,899
15 BlueDot.us - a social bookmarking and networking software that installs a single browser button for users to “dot” a webpage, making a link to the page part of their Blue Dot profile. Alexa Rank = 11,494
16 Spurl.net - allows you to store, share and search all the interesting things you find on the web (currently quite limited service due to heavy spam attacks - concentrate your efforts elsewhere). Alexa Rank = 14,009
17 SpotPlex - allows you to find what is the hot news today, this week, or this month in real time. Not a list of articles people recommended or voted for, but a list of articles read most in a given timeframe. Alexa Rank = 30,339
18 Simpy - allows you to save, tag and search your own bookmarks and notes or browse and search other users’ links and tags. Alexa Rank = 11,107
19 MyBookmarks.com - allows you to keep your browser bookmarks and favorites online so you can access them from anywhere. Alexa Rank = 127,018
20 SpotBack - a personalized rating system that recommends relevant content based on personal rating history using collaborative filtering and aggregated knowledge technologies. Alexa Rank = 44,850
21 ma.gnolia - members save websites as bookmarks, just like in their browser. Except with a twist: they also “tag” them, assigning labels that make them easy to find again. Alexa Rank = 7,236
22 Shadows - link-sharing website that allows you to tap into the collective wisdom and interests of the entire Shadows community. Alexa Rank = 25,636

The ranking in alexa shows the total traffic being generated in your website. There are various steps involved in improving ranking in alexa. First of all it is suggested to download the alexa toolbar. Then the content, which is written, should include write-ups on alexa search engine. But a low ranking on Alexa does not indicate that the traffic is not being generated on Google, Yahoo and MSN search engines. Given the fact that Alexa ranking for a site is calculated on the basis of how many visitors with the Alexa toolbar installed have visited that particular site, the results can be inaccurate most of the time.
