  1. Hello Nithin

    Would love to add few things relevant to your blog -

    # Digg is now no more providing regular submission like it used to be in the past. So I do not think that this will be a good social bookmarking website to build the links.

    # Stumbleupon - They never provide you direct links hence submission to delicous will also not count as backlinks (because it will be redirected through their own domain)

    Yes they are good for getting traffic once you have established account at there. Would love to add few more website with above 5 -


    Though there are many other as well. If you are looking for top 20 than please let us know.
