    At the bottom of the History – My Bookmarks page you’ll now see a new section:

    You can use this form to download the history of the submissions your bookmark has received.  It’s a CSV file containing the URLs of all the user pages on the different social media sites.

    Why would you want to download the history?

    • To import into other backlinking or index-boosting systems in order to boost the “link juice”
    • To share with SEO clients
    • Simply to analyze the data

    This new functionality is release v2.53.

  • Announcing Twitter!

    After a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, we’ve finally completed the Twitter integration functionality!

    We’re especially excited about this because search engines more than ever are factoring what they call ‘social signals’ heavier and heavier in their algorithms. This means that having your bookmark URLs tweeted hundreds of times will push your sites up in the rankings, faster than ever before, shooting past your competition, while driving hordes of fresh traffic.

    Here’s how it all works:

    ‘Free’ Members

    1. First you need to head to the Setup Wizard.  Here you’ll create a new Twitter account (if need be) and authorize SocialAdr to access your Twitter account.
    2. Next, go to the Share Queue.  You should notice new buttons on each bookmark (they may take a few seconds to load).  By clicking these new buttons you’ll see a popover box like so: If the “Default” tweet message is ok, simply click “Submit”, otherwise feel free to type your own “Custom” message.  Keep in mind the bookmark URL will be auto-appended to the end of your message so you’ll only have about 110 or so characters for your message.  We’re using TinyURLs to shorten any long URLs in order to conserve as much space as possible for the tweet message.  You’re currently able to send a maximum of 5 tweets per day.
    3. Now you can head to the History – Tweets Sent page to view all the tweets you’ve sent.  You can see the URL you tweeted about, the SocialAdr user who owned the bookmark, a link to the actual tweet on, how many credits you received, and the timestamp of when it happened.


    All Members

    1. The number of credits that are earned/deducted for each tweet is calculated based on the # of Twitter followers the account has.
      • ((ln(followers+50)^2)/3)-4
      • Example:  a ‘Free’ member has a Twitter account with 2035 followers. Each tweet that they send will earn them 15.5 * 0.2 = 3.1 credits.  The 0.2 multiplier is consistent with how social bookmarking submission credits are calculated.  The member who owns the bookmark will be deducted 15.5 credits, regardless of which account type they have.
    2. On the Add Bookmark page you’ll see a new “Microblog Message” section that allows you to customize the default tweet message for each of your bookmarks.  The default message is simply the bookmark Title.The user who actually posts the tweet to their Twitter account can still choose to write their own custom message, but at least, as the bookmark owner, you can set a custom message that we believe most users will choose to use.  And good news, spin tags {|} are accepted!
    3. You can view the history of any tweets you’ve received on the History – Tweets Received page. You’re shown the URL that was tweeted about, the SocialAdr user who sent the tweet, a link to the actual tweet on, how many credits it cost, and the timestamp of when it happened.  Notice that the first row cost 15 credits, because “kane” must have had between 1,000 and 10,000 followers.  The second row cost 5 credits, because “jaspert” must have had between 100 and 1,000 followers.


    What if I don’t want users tweeting my bookmarks?

    No problem at all, you can opt-out here.
