    Social bookmarking sites are used for backlinks and traffic purposes.

    If you use only low quality social bookmarking sites, or if you build too many links from social bookmarking sites then of course, it is not good for you and you won't get any benefit as well.

    Search engine optimization - because of the benefits in helping your position, a lot of people use this to create links oh no- their site without actually creating unique content wealthy submissions. Instead they simply generate junk and add their link and hope it will help their rankings.

    Disadvantages of Social Bookmarking are:

    Sometimes if you bookmark number of sites on social bookmarking network, then it takes some time to find the website if you do not know the name of the required website.
    You need to manage your social bookmarking account regularly to get continuous traffic to your website.
    Some social bookmarking site are not free, you need to pay monthly charges.
    Spamming - Sometimes tagging wrong information on social bookmarking sites may mislead user.

    1. Tag structure - there is no standard across this medium in which to regulate how social bookmarking sites tag links. Examples include - should people only use capital at the start of a sentence or for each main keyword?

    2. Collusion - like most things in the world today, a scammer can come up with a way to try to rort the system. If people join big groups and submit bookmarks and control the votes of them, they are harming the other users who are relying on the general public to vote on their submission.

    3. Search Engine Optimization - because of the benefits in helping your ranking, a lot of people use this to create links back to their site without actually creating unique content rich submissions. Instead they simply create junk and add their link and hope it helps their rankings.

    Although social bookmarking offers most of its users a lot of advantages, it is not without its share of disadvantages. A lot of internet users, especially those who have not used social bookmarking before, are unaware that one of the problems that this tag-based system is experiencing is the lack of appropriate and much-needed standards that is set for the keywords, vocabulary and controlled terms. Keep in mind that social bookmarking users use keywords and phrases to tag their favorite bookmarked websites in order to make it easier for other users to find it, tag and bookmark it and share it with other users as well. Since the tag-based system relies on people to organize their bookmarked websites and Web pages, this means that human error is very possible, and this can create a lot of problems, especially in terms of organization and consistency. What this means is that people will be given total control on how they tag and organize their bookmarked sites. If they use the wrong tag, or if they create an inconsistent standard and managing system for their tags, then other users will find it very difficult to find what they are looking for since all the bookmarked websites would be very confusing already.

    Social bookmarking can also be susceptible to corruption and collusion.[19] Due to its popularity, some users have started
    considering it as a tool to use along with search engine optimization to make their website more visible. The more often a
    web page is submitted and tagged, the better chance it has of being found. Spammers have started bookmarking the same web
    page multiple times and/or tagging each page of their web site using a lot of popular tags, obliging developers to constantly
    adjust their security system to overcome abuses.

    The impact dependent upon how its being in used during the tagging process of any link. It could be beneficial if used wisely and it could ruin the value of a linked site if appropriate conditions were not fulfilled.
