    For this latest release we’ve fixed a bug that was allowing certain bookmarks to exceed their specified Submission Limit.  In addition, the “History” – My Bookmarks” page was updated to be more user-friendly and faster loading.

    We’ve also made improvements to SubmissionBoost that have increased the # of sites submitted to by about 40%.  What does this mean?  More diversity in your backlinks, for as little effort as clicking a single check-box on the “Add Bookmark” page :)

    We also wanted to give you a heads up of what we’re working on:

    • Facebook “Like” integration
    • Twitter “Tweet” integration

    Both of these will likely use the same ‘ol SocialAdr credit system that you’re used to.  Our goal is to make them as easy to use as possible but there may be permissions that you’ll need to grant SocialAdr in order for us to access your Facebook/Twitter accounts.

    The latest SocialAdr v2.25 enhancement is a pinging service that notifies search engines when new bookmarks are submitted to the social bookmarking sites.  The primary benefit of pinging is so that the search engine bots are aware of the new or updated pages and (hopefully) decide to index/crawl them quicker.  When this happens they see the backlinks to your pages faster and your rankings should improve quicker.

    We know that a lot of members have been manually pinging the pages their bookmarks appear on, so this should help all those folks free up some precious time.

    And best of all, there’s absolutely nothing you need to do to get it to work and we’re not charging a cent for it.  This new service will work for every SocialAdr user effective immediately.

    In addition, this release includes a bug fix on the “Add Bookmark” page that wouldn’t allow special characters like ampersand (&) to be used in the Spin Preview.

    • History – Stats page updated to hide sections that don’t apply to the ‘Lazy’ accounts.
    • ‘Lazy’ accounts welcome page updated to include a short video explaining what they need to do.
    • Help – Videos page updated to include the ‘Lazy’ video from above.
    • Members menu item removed as the menu was getting cluttered and it was unimportant for most users.
    • Existing paid members may now use the Upgrade Account page without having to email support for assistance.

    SocialAdr bookmark categoriesWe’ve added a new field to the Add Bookmark page called “Category”.

    The purpose of this is so that we can start sending bookmarks to social bookmarking services that require categories.  There’s quite a few of them so this opens up a lot more possibilities for integration. :)

    We strongly recommend that you update your existing Bookmarks.  If you don’t then we won’t be able to send your bookmarks to any site we integrate with that uses categories.  So any time anyone Shares your bookmarks you’ll be missing out on potential backlinks.

    If you can’t find a category that’s a perfect match for your bookmark, just pick the most appropriate one.

    This new functionality is the v2.15 release.

     
  • You asked for SPIN tags? You got ’em.

    The latest SocialAdr enhancement (v2.14) gives you the ability to SPIN the bookmark Title and Description.

    Spin Tags are used to dynamically convert a single piece of text into many unique variations.  The idea is to use psynonyms throughout the text which are then ‘spun’.  We’ve decided to use { for the start tag | for the separator and } for the end tag. If you’re really hardcore you can even use nested SPIN tags!

     

    Example:

    SocialAdr {automated|autopilot|bookmark} backlinks are great for {SEO|Search Engine Optimization}

    Result: (one sentence turns into 6)

    • SocialAdr automated backlinks are great for SEO
    • SocialAdr autopilot backlinks are great for SEO
    • SocialAdr bookmark backlinks are great for SEO
    • SocialAdr automated backlinks are great for Search Engine Optimization
    • SocialAdr autopilot backlinks are great for Search Engine Optimization
    • SocialAdr bookmark backlinks are great for Search Engine Optimization

     

    The benefits of using SPIN tags for your Bookmarks are:

    1. You can use multiple keywords (tags) in the Title, with the help of SPIN tags.  This means that rather than having hundreds of backlinks to your URL all using the same anchor text, you get a variety of different anchor texts, using different targeted keywords.  Variety is good!
    2. You get multiple unique variations of the Description text.  It’s arguable how beneficial this is in regards to social bookmarking, as many of the sites allow NO description.  There’s also debate on whether search engines care about the uniqueness of content on a page where a backlink originates from.  However, at least you’d be playing it safe by spinning your Descriptions.

     

    How do I use the new SPIN tag functionality?

    bookmark spin tagsIt’s easy!  Log into SocialAdr.  Go to the Add Bookmark page.  Enter the details of your new bookmark, making sure to use the SPIN tag format as described above.  Remember that only the Title and Description can be spun.  Then click the Spin Preview link for each entity to verify that your SPIN tags are entered properly.   Save the bookmark as normal.

    You can also Edit your existing bookmarks and add in the SPIN tags.   Just go to Bookmarks – My Bookmarks.  Click the Title of the bookmark you want to edit.  Then click the Edit link.  You’ll be taken to the form with all the existing details filled out.  Make whatever changes you’d like and click Save.

     

    What about Tags?

    We haven’t forgotten about Tags.  It didn’t seem appropriate to allow SPIN text for them, but what we’ve done is randomize their order and use a subset (at least half) of them when the bookmarks are submitted to the social bookmarking services.

    Example:

    Original Tags

    • social bookmarking, bookmarking software, bookmarking tools, socialadr, backlinking

    Tags used for the bookmark submission

    • bookmarking tools, backlinking, socialadr, social bookmarking
