Why Only Some Sites Are Listed In The Social Bookmarking Site Lists

Social bookmarking site list

Whenever you go through social bookmarking site lists, you will find that the sites that are listed are almost the same in most of the lists with only minor changes in them. Many social bookmarking sites never make such lists and this can often make you wonder, why a list does not contain all the social bookmarking sites that are available. The fact is that, it is not possible to list all social bookmark sites as there are new ones popping all over the internet almost every day.

The social bookmarking sites that are listed on websites are the ones that are having a PR rating. Many sites including social bookmarking sites are ranked based on their PR rating. To feature in the rankings, the social bookmark site should have a few qualities. Only if the requirements are met, the site will be considered for a PR Rating.

How are social bookmarking sites judged?

  • The social bookmark site is judged based on the number of members that it has and the popularity of the site. To judge the popularity of the site, the number of users who login to the site every day is considered.
  • The ratings used to rank social book marking sites, are based on the PR Rating of the sites. PR ratings are arrived at based on a set of calculations.
  • These calculations are based on the membership base, the average number of hits the site receives and the history of the social book marking sites.
  • The PR Rating of social bookmarking sites is similar to those used in most media. It is based on the popularity of the bookmarking site.

Getting listed on social bookmarking site lists

You would have noticed that there are some new social bookmarking sites that are listed, while some sites that have been online for months, do not find their way into social bookmarking site lists.
The new social bookmarking sites have been able to churn up better PR ratings when compared to the sites that have been online for a few months. Therefore, even new sites can find their way into such site lists. If you are a member of a bookmarking site that has low PR rating, using them to build backlinks is not a good idea. Such sites will not be listed in reputed site lists and therefore the time you spend will be in vain. Only sites that have the required qualities and the rating will be listed on reputed websites.

Top social bookmarking sites

The top step of the social bookmark site lists is usually for sites that have PR ratings of eight and upwards. The ratings do not tend to go up above eight in most cases. Those sites that have a rating of five and above are considered to be good social book marking sites. If you are looking at using the social book marking sites for backlink building, then you should consider the sites that have a minimum PR rating of three and above, as they will be able to get you the required results.
