40 Promotional Sites Where To Submit Your Design Related Links

Posted in Social Media, Web Design • Posted on 78 Comments

Since I use social bookmarking/voting sites to promote my articles a lot, I thought I might share these sites with You too – I know if You submit every article in each of these sites regularly, You’ll get many new and regular readers in short time period. I, for example, got 4,000-5,000 unique readers everyday using this method. Of course, there is also much more small and useful tips, but I think I’ll do that kind of article a little bit later.

And I know, there are few another similar articles, but at least for me, I want my own list, showing the more and less useful sites for me in diminishing order. Not all of sites are just for design related articles, but I couldn’t not to include those sites too, since they create so much traffic for me. Also if You use this technique, You get very strong backlinks which are good for SEO and Your site at first place, of course.

I marked social bookmarking/voting sites with registration required with “*” mark.
