    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 –¬†

    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!

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

    And you’ll get to see a unique variation:

    Pretty cool stuff!

  • Adding bookmarks is now much easier

    We’ve just rolled out an update to the Add Bookmark page, known as¬†Easy Mode. ¬†We’ve had a lot of people request this, as they found the process of manually writing the Title field, including spintax {|}, to be overwhelming.

    This new mode will allow you to enter only the bare minimum fields while adding a bookmark, and the system will auto-generate the rest.

    SocialAdr - Add Bookmark - Easy Mode

    If you click the “Easy” button, it’ll switch to “Advanced” mode, which is the same ‘ol functionality that you’re accustomed to.

    SocialAdr - Add Bookmark - Advanced Button

    In “Easy” mode, simply paste a list of your keywords in the new Keywords field, one per line. ¬†Enter your¬†primary keyword on the 1st line.

    Here’s how the old fields are being auto-populated:


    The hidden¬†Title field typically becomes the anchor text for any social media backlinks you’ll receive.

    The approximate weighted values of the auto-generated Title field are:

    • 40% keywords
    • 40% URL and its variations (non-http, http, domain only)
    • 20% generic terms

    These values were chose in order for your backlink profile to appear as natural as possible.


    The hidden Tags field is generated from your Keywords.

    Submission Rate

    This field will be hidden in ‚ÄúEasy Mode‚ÄĚ and defaulted to ‚ÄúNormal‚ÄĚ.

    Submission Limit

    This field will be hidden in ‚ÄúEasy Mode‚ÄĚ and defaulted to <blank> (no limit).

    Microblog Message

    Your Keywords are used to generate the microblog message, using spintax {|}.

    After adding a bookmark in “Easy” mode, you can go back and edit it in “Advanced” mode, to have access to every field again, and full control over all its properties.

    Let us know how you like it!


  • SocialAdr v2.742 Released

    Here’s the latest SocialAdr updates:

    • New bookmarks will be moved to the front of the Share Queue. ¬†This way users should feel more satisfied that the system is working sooner.
    • A validation popup message was added to the¬†Add¬†Bookmark¬†page to ensure that spintax {|} is used in the Title field. ¬†It’s becoming more and more important to vary the Title text, because it forms your anchor text for backlinks, and Google penalizes sites that have a lot of identical anchor text, as it looks spammy.
    • We started beta testing on a new module that will allow you to automatically create Bookmarks from RSS feeds. ¬†If all goes well we’ll be opening it up to more users sometime next year.
    • We added a couple new social media sites.
    • We’ve created a new Social Engage¬†service where we’ll manage your social accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Google+), post regular updates, engage users, and build better relationships with your followers and fans.
  • Improved Spin Logic for Social Submissions

    We’ve been reading all the great feedback through our User Voice¬†page, and one enhancement people wanted was for us to generate a unique spintax {|} variation for every distinct social media submission, and not just for each ‘share’.

    We took this to heart and got it done.

    Here’s an example…

    Bookmark Title = SocialAdr is {awesome|great|kickass|super duper|swell}


    When a Free user sees this bookmark, decides they like it, and clicks a button to submit it to their social accounts, our processing engine would generate a spintax variation of the Title, and use that for all the social accounts for that user.

    Delicious = SocialAdr is awesome

    StumbleUpon = SocialAdr is awesome

    Pinterest = SocialAdr is awesome

    Diigo = SocialAdr is awesome

    …and so on…


    Now our processing engine generates a spintax variation of the Title for each of the social accounts for that user.

    Delicious = SocialAdr is awesome

    StumbleUpon = SocialAdr is kickass

    Pinterest = SocialAdr is super duper

    Diigo = SocialAdr is swell

    …and so on…

    Hopefully that makes sense :)

    We weren’t super concerned with the old logic, because search engines don’t discover all the links immediately anyways, it can often take weeks for them to discover some of the links. ¬†And if your bookmarks are receiving submissions each day, and for every user who shares your bookmarks a spintax variation is generated, over time there should be a lot of variety.

    But…this new logic is definitely better, there’s no doubt about that. ¬†It’s yet another step forward in reducing a footprint.

    * this update is v2.740

    For this latest update, we’ve rolled out integrations to 3rd party services for Facebook Likes. ¬†When we’re unable to determine how many friends a user has, you’ll just be charged 10 credits per Like (similar to how Google+1 works).

    We’ve also updated the spintax {|} function to be more random, as there were cases where if the same block of text was reused within a Title or Description, it would generate the same spintax iteration.
