Direct links from social bookmarks

I know I don’t post enough, but I try to have unique posts. I was holding off on this to better take advantage of it myself, but since SEOmoz is posting about Pligg sites, I better post this now before my content is less than unique.

Everyone knows the use of the social bookmarking sites to drive traffic, but I also think they are good because many of them give out direct links that are indexed by the search engines. Some of the smaller bookmarking sites only give out redirect links, but it looks like almost none of them are using link condoms, and many give out direct links.

In the spirit of the holidays here is my list English-language social bookmarking sites that give out direct links. I omitted the bigger known sites and ones with primarily adult related content.

I grouped them by my quick notes about their niche, but they are basically in random order.

Now I am not suggesting you spam these sites (some already have been in my cursory glance), but rather adopt a site if they are in your niche and start building their community… with your posts of course.
