Extra Exposure with Social Bookmarking Tools
Tuesday, November 28, 2006
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving =) With that said, we wanted to share some techniques that could greatly improve the broadcast of your videos.
Submitting to social bookmarks can bring exposure to your videos as well as offer an easy way to share and mange your video links. Moreover, it provides a way for search engines to find your content for people to search. One of our goals at Flixya is to help you maximize the exposure of your submitted videos, after all its about sharing your videos for others to watch and enjoy. For those who are participating in the rewards program this also offers a great way to increase your ad impressions.
Today, we will talk about two main methods. 1. Submitting to Digg, 2. Submitting to other Social Bookmarks using a tool by Tagtooga. (batch processing)
- Go to www.digg.com and register for an account (its FREE!).
- To submit to Digg you can either login and submit via Digg manually, or go to your videos link and click on the Digg icon underneath your video (this will pre-fill some items on the Digg form)
- Alternatively, Firefox users can use the Digg extension, which pre-fills the entry form: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/3040/
Either way Digg offers a great way to expand the reach of your content and if it happens to get Dugg, then be prepared for some major views on your video.
*More about Digg:
Digg is a user driven social content website. Everything on digg is submitted by the digg user community (that would be you). After you submit content, other digg users read your submission and digg what they like best. If your story rocks and receives enough diggs, it is promoted to the front page for the millions of digg visitors to see.
2. Social Bookmarking Software
Tagtooga offers a great software that can automatically submit your links to 8 of the most popular social bookmarking websites. After you sign-up with the 8 bookmarking sites, you can enter in your login information and specify your videos link(s) and have it automatically submitted to the 8 sites. For the case of submitting multiple links you can open notepad or a text editor and copy and paste your video links, then load the txt file into Tagtooga software. Either way this offers a simple and effective way to broadcast and bookmark your video links.
Bonus: For those who need more there is an entire list of Social Bookmarking sites on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_social_software
