    This has been a long time coming, but better late then never, right? ūüėČ

    I’m super excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Spin Rewriter¬†to allow you to automatically generate spintax {|} for your bookmark descriptions. ¬†This¬†enhancement will definitely save you time (and $ if you currently pay for a spinning tool).

    Why is spintax needed?

    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‘. ¬†SocialAdr uses { for the start tag | for the separator and } for the end tag.

    By using spintax in your¬†bookmark description field, every time your web page is submitted to a social site, a unique variation of the description text is generated, which¬†means you get more variety and more natural-looking social buzz. ¬†Think of it this way … if every reference to your site says the exact same thing, like “Hey check out Bob’s plumbing, best plumber ever!” don’t you think that will look suspicious both to search engines as well as the social site owners? ¬†The more variety, the better!

    Here’s how it works

    1) ¬†Go to the Add Bookmark page –¬†http://socialadr.com/pg/bookmarks/add

    2) ¬†Enter any text in the “Description” field

    Description - Plain Text

    3) ¬†Click the new blue¬†“Generate Spintax” button

    4) Marvel at the neat-o spintax that is automatically generated!

    Description - Spintax

    If you’d like, you can¬†then click the “Spin Preview” button:

    And you’ll get to see a unique variation:

    Pretty cool stuff!

    For this latest release, we’ve:

    • Added “History Download” for individual bookmarks. ¬†This has been requested by several people doing SEO consulting that need to send complete history to their clients. ¬†Now it’s much, much easier! ¬†Just go to History > My Bookmarks, click on the “Submission Count” field for the bookmark you want history for, then scroll to the bottom and enter dates, then click “Download”.
    • Updated spintax function to be more robust. ¬†It can now handle multi-nested spin tags and has better spintax error reporting. This function is used to spin your bookmark Titles and Descriptions during submission to the social media sites.
    • Improved the connector code for Diigo, MySiteVote, SiteSays, and SoForce social bookmarking sites to have better submission rates and error reporting.

    Happy Holidays!

    We just rolled out some new updates for v2.64:

    • The “Spin Preview” on “Add Bookmark” page code has been updated so now every time you click it you’ll see a new spun result. ¬†Previously it would cache the result and you’d keep seeing the same thing over and over. ¬†Read this post¬†to learn more about spintax / spin tags.
    • Made updates to our bookmark submission engine to improve error reporting and reduce the stalling of threads. ¬†What does this mean to SocialAdr members? ¬†A higher submission rate = more promotions of your webpages = higher search engine rankings = more traffic.
    • Added an “Email address (again for verification)” field to the registration form to help reduce the number of times people have typos in their email addresses and thus never receive the verification email and cannot log into their account.
    • Performed server configuration changes to improve page load times.
    • Improved error reporting and submission logic for the following social media sites: ¬†SoForce, Connotea, FriendFeed, TTLink, MySiteVote.

     
  • 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
