It has become an integral part of online marketing and every major or upcoming websites are using it every day as a part of their SMM strategy to make their presence felt across the internet.

Twitter is a great way to generate traffic and tap in to the SMO frenzy. So make sure that the Twitter account associated with your website is alive and kicking.

Social bookmarking is a great way of letting people know about your website and lets the visitors to your website promote your website on sites like Digg, Reddit and the likes. It is an amazing SMM technique, and anyone who is new to this SMO fad, should make use of this technique, if they are not doing so already.

Getting people to flock on your website requires more than mere search engine optimization these days.

And SMO is a sure-shot way of generating organic traffic, consisting of people who are really interested in your services. Just remember: websites like Facebook, Twitter and MySpace are your friends and you should start using them for more than just finding old friends.
