What is Bookmarking Service?
A social bookmarking service is a centralized online service which enables users to add, annotate, edit, and share bookmarks of web documents. In a social bookmarking system, users save links to web pages that they want to remember or share. These bookmarks are usually public, and can be saved privately, shared only with specified people or groups, shared only inside certain networks, or another combination of public and private domains. The allowed people can usually view these bookmarks chronologically, by category or tags, or via a search engine. Bookmarking sites can help you store all your favorite and useful sites which you can revisit later and they also serve as good link building sites. The more incoming links you have for your content, the better chances you have to rank well in SEO.
