Access to over 500+ social media networks for free by using these methods! Enjoy:
If you’re in the SEO business and you’re looking to create profiles, engage with people and talk about your brand (oh, and of course, get some great backlinks in the process) you’re probably used to searching high and low for different social media websites to sign up to. And, if you’re anything like me, you’re probably always on the lookout for new places to make your mark, whether these are networks, bookmarking websites or article driven community hubs..
The search is over! 100s of social media networks!
Stop your search and let me share with you my five best kept secrets. These are five websites that contain hundreds of links to social networking websites. Some are arranged by niche, others by function.
I promise, these will give you fuel for weeks:
1. 150+ social networks, categorised by niche:
With over 50 different categories and hundreds of websites listed, you’re sure to find a social networking site that will help you build relevant links and engage with interested people. Is beer your thing? There’s a network for that. What about pets or politics? Religion? Shopping? Smoking? Sport? Spanish? Real estate? Travel? Education? Yep there are social networks for all those too. A lot of the niche social networking sites linked ALSO have their own reviews too, conducted by the site’s owner.

2. 100 social media websites that pass PageRank:
This list IS a little outdated (it’s from 2007) and there are several sites that a) no longer exist and b) have now opted to nofollow links BUT don’t be put off. There are still LOTS of links on this site that are worth checking out.

3. Over 350+ social media networks:
This website was designed for users who’d like to check which social media websites and social networks they can still claim a branded profile on. For example, I can search ‘SuperCarly’ and see out of the 350+ social media websites which I can then go and still claim!
But how does this help you build networks and profiles?
Well, in the top navigation, KnowEm provides a list of the services they’re currently tracking, all divided up by function. For example, I can see roughly 30 blogging websites, 47 community sites and around 30 bookmarking sites and there are still a lot of other options to look through. The site also contains social media networks for specialty niche areas too, like health, design, music, business, travel and news. KnowEm offer a premium service too, so if you’re too busy, they can secure your brand name across all available social media networks on your behalf. Bargain.

4. 10 image bookmarking websites for backlinks:
OK, this one will only keep you busy for one hour, but it’s worth it. I’d never heard of these websites before I found this post. You can sign up to most of them and create profile links and backlinks to your submissions, though two websites require invites before signing up (though you can email to request these.) Plus, if you create a really good image and it goes viral, you get lovely free traffic!
A must for all designers and photographers. Businesses – you could get your staff to submit quirky photos to a couple of these sites? Give them a try!

5. 30+ social media networks on Ping.Fm
I’m going to be honest and assume that a bunch of these websites ARE already contained in the 350+ list KnowEm provides…BUT I will say that I’ve already spotted one or two gems that don‘t appear to be on the KnowEm site, which is pretty useful!
Ping.FM boasts the ability to update a lot of services from the same place, making your social media networks and social networking portals very easy to manage!

I hope you’ve found these websites as useful as I have!
A big shout out to the owners who spent a lot of time collating these lists to share with us all.
Lastly, have you any similar resources to share? I’d really appreciate it
