Recommended Best Practices: What to Do & What NOT to Do What to do: Encouraging social bookmarking by adding links to make it easy for users – consider asking email subscribers to bookmark your site too Consider developing a custom tool that matches the corporate website look and feel and that leverages multiple bookmarking sites Consider what pages of the website make sense to use social bookmarking on (ie. news, events, tools, resources) Make sure your approach is sustainable and avoid dramatic fluctuations in ranking algorithms What NOT to do: Don't submit content just to get traffic without taking into account whether the content would interest the community. Don’t make multiple accounts to artificially promote your content. Don’t use software programs to automate the process and spamming as many social sites as you can. Don’t pay someone else to do these thins either
