    How to you promote a social bookmarking site?

    If I have a social bookmarking site I want to promote, what are the best ways to promote it? and what's the most effective ways to market it? I can't simply just bookmarking every single page to other social bookmarking sites, right?

    work first on your description text, before you start to promote it. What key point/benefits will you highlight? Who are you targeting? (webmasters/bloggers/more specific?)
    Do you really need traffic? Where to? What for?
    If you really do need traffic then stop messing around!

    If you have noticed that when you search for social bookmarking sites on Search Engines, at times it will present you a site that lists and reviews social bookmarking sites. You can search for this sites and get your bookmarking site listed and reviewed as this can bring in good traffic for you.. good luck with it..

    Try to get listed in social bookmarking directories, create blog post about it and promote through social networking sites where you participate actively.

    The best ways to promote your social bookmarking site is to have a good Title and Description and more over you can submit your sites in directories and also pass it to your social networking cell.

    Well, you must offer something good to its members if they sign up while promoting your site through blogging, forums, bookmarking, etc
