I'm new to this social bookmark thingy, I still don't fully understand the concepts, all I really know is I submit to a social bookmarking site and people come to my site. In researching this topic I've come across some info, services and tools.
So I thought I would share some of the findings.
To kick things off
Some detailed Info on the subject
lorelle.wordpress.com Very good explantion about social bookmarking, bought to my attention by ycc2106 from 3spots who also pointed me to to a list of services that also list the features each service has, 3spots service list and features .

Some more services
Fark submit Not to sure if this is a social bookmark service, but getting on that front page would be cool.
The 3spots link has a lot more services I just picked out a few I like.
Most of the services require sign up and some post your bookmarked page to a recently submitted page like this one on Reddit in real time.
Most of the services allow you to tag your bookmarks and also allow others to as well.
Some tools and tutorials

Twistermc.com has a tool that creates the code to put social bookmark links into blog, very easy to use.
Evilgeniusmarketing.com This generator creates tag and bookmarklet code. I'm still a little hazy on some of the concepts here. EDIT: I use this to generate my Technorati Tags code , type in the tags you want select the service you want and hit generate code easy as pie.
3spots A selection of applications.
Econsultant.com various del.icio.us tools.
I find that I have to play around with the placement of most of these codes to get them to work with different templates but thats part of the fun.
Remember to read the rules and regs when signing up to these services, some only allow on topic bookmarks, some don't allow blogs, don't spam it up and pick the best, most resourceful pages to bookmark.
LOL I'm still confused by this concept of social bookmarking, the links listed above have gotten me to some kind of level but I know that I'm missing something substantial.
Any comments or advice is very much appreciated.
